Stonehaven Folk Festival - 5-8 July

Stonehaven is a picturesque harbour Town situated just 15 miles south of Aberdeen and is easily accessible by bus, rail and road. The Stonehaven Folk Festival was established in 1989 and has gone from strength to strength ever since, attracting 2,500 attendees last year. This year is the 30th festival! There will be a wide range of events, many free, throughout the town over the weekend - from main stage concerts in the Town Hall to informal sessions and singarounds in the pubs and around the harbour.

Musically, a wide and diverse range of traditional and contemporary “folk” music and song will be on offer featuring local and international artists. There is also a good workshop programme using performers at the festival to share their skills and knowledge.

There are of course some fun things such as the World Paper’n’Comb Championships on Saturday and the Aqua Ceilidh in the Open Air swimming pool on the Sunday morning. There will also be a world record attempt for the largest ceilidh band!

Artists booked include Manran, Tim Edey & Luke Daniels, Siobhan Miller, John Doyle, The Occasionals, Nae Plans, Ken Clark, Altan, Imar, Kristina Olsen and The Chair.
