Line-up announced and tickets on sale now!
All is looking pretty good for this year's festival - the bands are booked, the committee have recovered and the bar has been re-stocked. Dates are the 2nd and 3rd of October and there will be the usual mix of fantastic bands, ceilidhs, concerts, workshops and sessions.
Feis na Mara is a weekend festival of performances, ceilidhs and workshops in the beautiful Highland village of Mallaig. It is run by volunteers in the community, and brings the absolute best in the current scene of Scottish musicians and singers to the intimate setting of the local hall. As we are dedicated to keeping ticket prices affordable across the community, and have a capacity of only 250 people in the venue, the financial shortfall is made up through tireless fundraising and gratefully appreciated donations.
If you would like to get involved by sponsoring, donating or volunteering please email us at email@example.com. One nights shift in the bar gets you in the other night for free! Or earn some cash for cleaning!
Many thanks for all sponsorship and volunteering, however big or small,

You can buy it from the website for only £10 plus p+p (http://www.feis-na-mara.com/index.php/festival/buy-tickets-festival-shop).…... read all news and events
