Moniaive Folk Festival - 10-12 May


Moniaive nestles in stunning countryside where the three glens of Craigdarroch, Dalwhat and Castlefairn meet. The 18th Moniaive Folk Festival is being held on 10-12 May. After a wonderful programme in 2018, this coming festival will yet again be bringing some of the finest acts on the folky circuit to this lovely wee village.

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.
