Author announcement - Colin MacIntyre

Author announcement: we're delighted to have the multi-talented Colin MacIntyre, aka Mull Historical Society, joining us this year for an evening of music and words featuring his fabulous debut, 'The Letters of Ivor Punch', which won Edinburgh International Book Festival's First Book Award in 2015.

Colin is already a well-known, award-winning musician, having toured with the likes of The Strokes, Elbow and REM. But Colin also comes from a family of storytellers. He is the grandson of Angus MacIntyre, the 'Bard of Mull', and has promised to read some of his grandfather's poems. Something about Islay cheese being an aphrodisiac in Italy... If you want to find out more, you'll have to come along!
