The Kelso Folk takes place on 2-4 September, combining live concerts featuring award-wining bands and artists, with sessions, workshops and open mics offering a showcase for local talent.

This year's concerts are with the wonderful Scottish singer, harpist and composer Corrina Hewat accompanied by pianist extraordinare David Milligan, with Dallahan, a four piece band who draw on numerous musical genres to create their own brand of world music. There's celebrated English songsmith and guitarist Steve Tilston, accompanied by bassist Hugh Bradley, alongside three recent 'Alba Young Folk Musician of the Year' winners in one band: Eryn Rae (fiddle), Michael Biggins (piano) and Charlie Stewart (double bass), with Stephen Henderson on percussion. Finally there's the irrepressible duo of Mairearad Green and Anna Massie whose camaraderie and sheer enjoyment of playing together makes for a hugely entertaining show of musical virtuosity on accordion, guitar and fiddle.
