Knockengorroch World Ceilidh - 23-26 May


Knockengorroch Festivals were born from a love of the land, excellent roots music and celebrating the good times. The festival presents unparalleled music, arts and workshops in a beautiful mountain riverside meadow around 50 miles from Dumfries. For them, location is key. This is one of the most beautiful and unique festival venues in the UK. The festival commemorates and celebrates the history and the people that once lived in our valley, in former times an entire village…

The World Ceilidh establishes progressive linkage between sounds indigenous to its natural amphitheatre venue and the now far-flung Celtic diaspora, once rooted in such homely places. It promotes multi-cultural forms and musical genres, highlighting the connection between roots music and the lands and people that created it. Music from all continents is presented alongside the best in Scottish talent to showcase music in both traditional and contemporary fields.

Amongst the line-up are Elephant Sessions, Talisk, Griogair Labhruidh and Oran Bagraidh feat Gwyneth Glyn, Josie Duncan, Lorcán Mac Mathúna, Doimnic Mac Giolla Bhríde, Barnaby Brown, Bragod, Conor Caldwell and MacGillivray.
