Girvan Folk Festival - 4-6 May

Girvan Folk Festival has been a highlight of the festival calendar since 1975 and it is still going strong. It has many, many strengths. It is a family festival with a clear constitution and defined focus. Although it has a core committee, it has been ‘owned’ by a larger group of people. Regularly seeking out new performers, it books ‘special people’ – not necessarily stars, but people with an X factor. It has many long and deep links with Ireland and England. It isn’t a ‘manufactured’ festival, it grew from established folk clubs and is organised by folk enthusiasts. It remains small and acoustic. It is on a Bank Holiday and runs for a full weekend.

Why not give Girvan a try this year... GUESTS INCLUDE: The Tannahill Weavers; Len Graham & Jack Lynch; Rita Gallagher; Lori Watson Trio; George Duff, Kevin MacLeod, John Martin, Leo McCann; Nick Dow; Eddie Seaman & Luc McNally; Maggie MacInnes Trio; Margaret Bennett; Susan McClure; Aileen Carr; Haggerdash; Fàilte; The Barrstools; Suitcase Circus; Irma Helou; The Tattiehowkers Ceilidh Band.
