The Crinan Hotel
Details of some of the events which will be taking place at the Crinan Hotel
Saturday 29th February
Regular Crinan Hotel visitor Archie McAllister will be playing his fiddle in the Hall during the evening so you will be able to hear him from the Residents' Lounge or the Seafood Bar while you have your supper.
Archie is widely considered to be one of Scotland's finest fiddle players and he is a familiar face to regulars at the Crinan Hotel New Year House Party.
Why don't you book a table for dinner or come and stay for the weekend?
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!
Guy Peploe, grandson of S.J. Peploe, has a unique insight into the works of the Scottish Colourists. He grew up with both a grandfather and father who were successful painters, so there might have been an expectation for him to become an artistic marvel himself. However, he says that he "can't paint for toffee" and has a "distinct lack of imagination" so Guy decided to take a different role in the art world and now helps to put on wonderful exhibitions at the Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh. He also spends time encouraging young artists, writing books and talking about the Scottish Colourists and Scottish art. He will be resident at Crinan for the March 2020 Art & Music weekend to share his knowledge about both contemporary and older Scottish art.
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.
