“The cream of country music from Nashville is coming to Cumbrae later this year as the island’s major festival undergoes a major re-branding.
Now in its 23rd year, Millport will now be hosting a Millport Country Music Festival in early September, with big name acts and rising stars from both sides of the Atlantic performing.

Under the cover of a huge marquee, concerts for 3,000 people will be held on the Saturday and Sunday afternoons and early evenings.
Recently signed to Big Machin’ in Nashville, The Shires will headline the Saturday September 2 line up.
In his first ever appearance in Scotland, Mark Chesnutt, with 14 US country No 1s and 23 top 10 singles to his name will close out the concert element of the festival on Sunday September 3.
Direct from Nashville will come three rising country artists, David Ray, Morgan Frazier, and Adley Stump, to provide support over the weekend.
