Ingrained in who we are

Live music is everything to us

Since Covid-19 restrictions began, we have been working hard to bring our unique mix of entertainment from local, Scottish and international artists back to the Isle of Arran and a global online audience.

Watch online


Our Managing Director Dónal Boyle and his school friend of old, Dave Town of BLACKBOX Pro Audio, have been busy recording many of our regular artists at Production House studios in Glasgow. With high-quality, professionally recorded sound and video, our online gigs capture the soul of live performance. Check out our round table interview with all the creators of the platform.

The music industry in Scotland

"unplugged" for now

Live music is not currently permitted in Scotland, which has brought the whole industry to a standstill. Many artists have been left unsupported financially, while musicians and music-lovers are feeling the enormous loss of the cultural, relaxing, and social benefits of live music. 

We are bridging the gap between safely providing live music and supporting our music industry.

You can support us, our artists and enjoy yourselves

For the cost of a pint

For just the price of a pint (and you can't even get one of those at the moment!) you can enjoy an hour or so of world-class music from regular artists who have played in Crofters over the years and provided you with many an evening of musical entertainment. 

Every Friday night at 8pm GMT one of our artists will "take to the stage" from the comfort of your own living room. These videos will be available for you to watch at any time afterwards - so don't worry if you miss it on the evening! 

You’ll be able to access the performances through MyPlayer when you create an account and enter your details. Here you can watch and listen to all the "gigs" as they become available and check out our upcoming artists. If you join our subscription you'll be able to access behind the scenes footage and exclusive interviews with our artists, the production team and Dónal, our MD.


Single gig ticket: £5

Monthly subscription: £16
