Caithness Festival on BBC Alba

Highlights of this years Caithness Festival, which featured Connie Smith, Bobby Flores, Rance Norton, Will Bannister and Evi Tausen, will be shown in a new 4 part series of Ceol Country on BBC Alba beginning on Tuesday September 17th, with repeats the following Sunday.

Linlithgow Bluegrass

As ever, bluegrass features at the forthcoming Linlithgow Folk Festival.
On Friday 13th September, there's a double bill at the Queen Margaret Hall.
Pioneers for Bluegrass in Scotland, the Okefenokee Bluegrass Band became very successful on the music scene, to the delight of audiences of all ages. The band retired due to other commitments, but this year they are back together again for a series of gigs to celebrate their long friendship and it is fitting that the first of these reunion gigs is in Linlithgow as it all started here, with their first professional gig.
Also, Scottish singer/songwriter Mairi Orr has been a regular in the Edinburgh and Lothians bluegrass and folk scene since 2004. Her melodic style and acoustic set-up draw from American roots music and Scottish traditional music, offering original songs and other interpretations which nod towards current Americana and contemporary Scottish Folk.
Then on Sunday morning, in the Masonic Hall there's a gospel session hosted by Dan Markey and friends - with audience participation.A great way to waken up to Festival Sunday, come along and raise the roof!
From 11am – 12.30pm
