Kelso Folk Festival

1st to 3rd September, 2017

The Kelso Folk and Live Music Club is running a weekend mini folk festival on the 1st to 3rd of September! This will be a weekend of live concerts, sessions, workshops and open mics featuring award wining bands and artists as well as a showcase for local talent.  Our evening concerts feature the fabulous Breabach, voted  ‘Folk Band of the Year’ and ‘Album of Year’ at the 2016 Scots Trad Music Awards and BBC 'Folk Musician of 2012' Tom McConville. Supporting them are 2016 winners of the Celtic Connections Danny Kyle Award, Northern Company and the talented Jenny Biddle.

In addition to formal concerts there will be plenty of opportunity to participate in our sessions, singarounds and open mics if you are a singer or musician, or simply listen to some great live music. All are welcome to join in, and you are sure to find one that suits where you will find like-minded musicians/singers. All this is going on in the beautiful Borders town of Kelso, a great tourist destination and which also happens to be hosting a leg of the Tour of Britain Cycling Race on Sunday 3rd!
