Crafts & Things - News and Events


What can I say about the musicians playing next at the Duror and Kentallan Community Centre that hasn’t been said many times before?

One runs out of superlatives!

To have either of them playing here would be remarkable in itself, to have them both is a real coup.

I am delighted to announce that on Thursday November 23d Duncan Chisholm and Hamish Napier will be playing in the Centre, and tickets are on sale now, £17.50, children accompanied by a paying adult go free.

As aficionados of Scottish traditional music these names will be very familiar to you, and there is really no need for me to even attempt to describe their artistic achievements. And if the names are new to you, google them and see for yourselves just how fortunate we are to have them performing together here.

Other than a slight price increase the details remain the same. You can respond to this email, your email will be acknowledged, and tickets will be reserved for you, and you can collect and pay at Crafts & Things, or at the hall on the night.  After the hall take a small cut the musicians and their sound engineer get the rest.  Doors open on the night at 7.15 p.m. for an 8.p.m start.

This concert will sell out.



If you would like to be the first to hear of forthcoming events at Crafts & Things, just drop me an email.


The owner of the business David Cooper has written a book, called "A Gap Life"

Capturing the spirit of the 60s, this is the story of one man’s physical and spiritual journey through those extraordinary years.

Starting in Aberdeen, finishing in Glencoe, David Cooper travels across Europe, North America, and Asia. From a commune in California to the rooftops of Istanbul, traversing the deserts of Iran and Afghanistan, crossing the Karakoram on foot, staying in Tibetan monasteries and remote Sumatran tribal villages, travelling alone, he encounters many iconic 60’s figures.

From R.D. Laing, John Lennon, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Allen Ginsberg, the acknowledged founder of the Beat Generation, David’s travels and meetings give us a unique insight into a fascinating era, one that changed the world.

Its available at the shop.

He has also written a local guide book for Mountain (e) bike routes in the area. Its has proved very popular and is in its third reprint. Copies are avalable in the shop and also at the Highland Bookshop in Fort William.
