Girvan Folk Festival - 3-5 May


Girvan Folk Festival was, and to some extent still is, one of the premier events in Scotland with respect to traditional music. It is proudly an old style festival with its own identity and values. If you like it, you may well love it – and if you love it, you may want to be part if the next few years of its new history.

Girvan’s Guest List for 2019 is very typical of ‘Girvan’ and promises lots of great musical experiences from people firmly rooted in the tradition. This year happens to have many more solo performers that formally established folk groups – but there is a plan behind this. Many people see Girvan as a ‘meeting place’; a chance to see old friends and to rub shoulders with traditional musicians from all ‘airts and pairts’ and within our guests, and visitors, there will be lots of opportunities for people to share in performance for some unique experiences.

GUESTS INCLUDE: Bob Fox – Cathal McConnell – Jock Tamson’s Ideal Band – James Patterson & John Dipper – Fiona Ross with Brian Miller – Rosie Stewart – The McKeaney Sisters – Fiona Heywood, Jim Byrne and Peter Campbell – Kathryn Nicoll & Karen Marshalsay – Dave Goulder – Dick Gaughan – Colum Sands – Bob Blair – Sandra Kerr – Scott Gardiner – Mike Vass – Gary West – Ollie Rigg – Hamish Denholm – Ali & Maggie Macrae – Heather Yule – Bill Barclay – The Barrstools – Artie Trezise – Susie Kelly – Artie’s Tartan Tales – Jock’s Jocks – The Bobby Robb Tribute Concert … and more
