The Crinan Hotel
Details of some of the events which will be taking place at the Crinan Hotel
Art and Music Weekends at Crinan
Martin Treacher (pianist, accordionist, piper) is a versatile musical entertainer who will join Frances Macdonald to host Crinan Hotel's exciting new Art and Music Weekends.
Since 2005 Martin has been full-time resident musical entertainer for the Carnegie Club at Skibo Castle in the Scottish Highlands, acknowledged as one of the world's finest clubs/hotels.
During the Art and Music Weekends, Martin will offer a classical recital, a Noel Coward Cabaret and selections of well-known and rare Scottish songs. He will pipe guests into dinner, provide some accordion in the bar, and at the end of the evening lead guests in a memorable sing-song around the piano.
And for any guests who have always wanted to play the piano, Martin can reveal some short cuts and have them playing a melody in no time at all!
Frances will give a painting demonstration and will be ready to answer questions about her work and offer tips to budding or aspiring artists.
These weekends are sure to be popular so book soon to make sure you can join us.

Guy Peploe on Peploe and Cadell
Guy will be visiting the hotel in March and he will give an informal and informative talk about his grandfather Samuel Peploe and his fellow Scottish Colourist, Francis Cadell on Saturday March 21st.
This will be a relaxed session in the Gallery Bar with a drink before dinner and it will be a good opportunity to learn more about both of these highly regarded Scottish painters.
And once again, Guy will play a leading part in the Crinan Hotel Art Trip to Iona in June - spaces on these trips are very limited so if you are interested in joining in, please contact Frances Ryan as soon as possible.
Both Frances and Ross Ryan regularly show at Guy's gallery in Edinburgh, The Scottish Gallery. Ross is working towards an exhibition there in May 2020.
