Sponsored by

This competition accepts any performance of music, poetry or stories, which celebrate the local area of Killin and Perthshire, and is inspired by Killin’s heritage in traditional Scottish music, in particular, Stewart’s ‘The Killin Collection’.

Col Charles Stewart (1823-1894) was a prominent figure in Killin and Perthshire, and helped to preserve and promote local history, folklore and music. Among his many achievements Stewart was Chief of the Perth Gaelic Society, Director of the Killin Railway, head of Killin Gaelic Choir and was a respected historian and translator of old manuscripts. Born in Glen Lyon, Stewart spent the greater part of his life in Killin at Tigh’n Duin. His legacy ‘The Killin Collection’ comprises songs and tunes of the local area from the 18th century.

The competition takes on the morning of Sunday 19 June 2022, at our free to access community stage.
