Incredibly exciting program that is bringing both a festival and scholarly convention to the north east. The artists announced for concerts and worshops are acclaimed at home and abroad, making it a not to miss opportunity for immersion in the cultures and their diaspora.

Fatma Neilson 22nd April 2018

When I was a young fiddler there were not so many places to go and feel you are part of great traditional music except the Edinburgh festival. Now I am nearing retirement and these these events bring us all together, strengthen our heritage, bridge the generations and keep the traditional tunes in our memories while rejoicing in the new music that is still arising from the core of our musical families. Looking forward to the convention.
