A musical duo from Connel will be touring Argyll this weekend playing songs from their debut album.

Dithis (Duo) is the debut album by sibling duo Joy and Andrew Dunlop who have been making music together since childhood.

The pair were steeped in the rich, musical tapestry of Argyll from an early age but developed their talents in different ways. Joy immersed herself in Gaelic song traditions and Andrew followed a classical path.

Joy is known for her successes at the Royal National Mòd, conducting the Alba Choir, who were Scotland’s first Gaelic Eurovision entry, as well as for presenting the weather on BBC Scotland, in addition to frequent appearances on BBC ALBA and Radio nan Gàidheal.

Andrew Dunlop is a versatile musician who has performed across Europe, USA, Canada, and New Zealand.

Andrew, who reached the finals of the BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year, currently works as the Company/Orchestral Pianist for Northern Ballet.

The duo will be performing in Christ Church, Lochgilphead on Friday, February 21, from 7.30pm.

They will be in St Mary’s Space, Appin, on Saturday February 22 also starting at 7.30pm.

And on Sunday February 23 they will be performing in Stonefield Castle, Tarbert, at 2pm.

Tickets cost £10/£8 and can be purchased from from www.eventbrite.com/e/86418304475 or on the door.
