Looking forward to Joy Dunlop and her Band on 24 March



Cowal Music Club is eagerly looking forward to its next concert with Scottish celebrity Joy Dunlop and her band on Sunday March 24th at 2.30pm in Dunoon’s Burgh Hall.

Well known as a television presenter, singer, dancer, journalist, and educator, Joy is a passionate ambassador of Gaelic language and culture, is a fluent Gaelic speaker, and has had a life-long fascination with Scotland’s traditional music, which has taken her across the world, from major Celtic festivals to Europe, USA, Japan, and New Zealand.

Joy has an enviable reputation for showcasing Gaelic music and song in a modern way which always remains true to its roots, and has in recent years been nominated 4 times as Gaelic Singer of the Year, as well as winning the Royal National Mod and Oban Times Gold Medals. She has also had unique success in winning both Traditional Singer of the Year and Traditional Dance Champion at the Pan Celtic Festival.

Having grown up in the village of Connel in north Argyll, she has always been influenced by Scottish traditional music, and is renowned for her capacity to “breath freshness” into it,  delivering performances which speak to all audiences, with her voice “as luminous and compelling as the landscapes of her native Argyll”.

Recently she has released 3 highly acclaimed solo albums, -‘Caoir’, ‘Dusgadh’ and ‘Faileasan’, as well as ‘Dithis’, - a duo album with her brother Andrew. As broadcaster, Joy presents the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year competition, and often hosts the well-known programme ‘Travelling Folk’. She is also creator and co-host of the successful Gaelic and Irish podcast ‘A-nunn’s Anall’.


Joining her will be her 4-piece band, including guitarist and arranger Ron Jappy, who is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, fiddler Mhairi Marwick from Fochabers, Glasgow-based bass guitarist and studio engineer Gus Stirrat, and drummer and teacher Scott Jamieson from Edinburgh.


With such eye-catching credentials, it promises to be a wonderful Sunday afternoon’s entertainment in the Burgh Hall, - with an excellent ‘forecast’, -an opportunity not to be missed, and early booking is highly recommended!
