Cowal Fiddle Workshop's purpose is to promote fiddle playing in the local community to all age groups so that everyone can enjoy playing traditional music together. Come along and join us!

Each year the workshop holds an annual rally where players are joined by  members from other Scottish fiddle societies as well as various ' friends of the workshop ' who play other instruments.

The workshop also holds a number of  concerts throughout the year and is happy to consider performing for any local fund-raising  events and local care homes.

The workshop is a keen supporter of the local PACCT group (People and Agencies of Cowal Coming Together) providing the music for dancing and listening at the group's monthly ceilidhs.


Annual membership of the workshop runs from August each year. Members pay an annual subscription of £95  which includes the use of the premises owned by Argyll & Bute Council. To join, why not come along to Edward Street on a workshop Saturday around noon to meet us and pick up an application form? (See our programme for dates)

Junior Section

Youngsters over the age of 7 are very welcome. All you need to bring with you is enthusiasm!  Membership for juniors costs £45 per year.  Why not try a 'taster term' for £20 which includes the hire of a fiddle and tuition? Please contact the workshop at or telephone  the secretary on 01369 830267.


The workshop is managed by an annually elected committee. All members are asked to contribute towards fund-raising activities, without which the workshop would be unable to exist.
