At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.

We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a  subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device.  In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.

Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).

An Tobar is continuing its Music For Winter Solitude series of films on February 18 with a short concert from Scottish singer/songwriter Roddy Woomble.

Best known for his work with Idlewild, Roddy was drawn to Tobermory’s creative and cultural beacon in November last year to record some vocals for his next solo album and to film the concert.

Roddy’s solo career began with My Secret Is My Silence back in 2006 and he has also made three records in An Tobar – The Impossible Song and Other Songs, Listen To Keep and Live in the Hebrides.

This film features songs from his most recent EP Everyday Sun, one from his last album The Deluder, two new ones, a favourite from My Secret and ends with an Idlewild hit.

The concert will be aired at 8pm on February 18 on the An Tobar Vimeo, YouTube and Facebook channels.

The Music For Winter Solitude films are free to watch but donations, 100 per cent of which go direct to the artists, are welcome.
