The third Kelso Folk Festival, organized by the Kelso Folk and Live Music Club, is again being run during the first weekend in September. We are planning a weekend of live concerts, sessions, workshops and open mics, featuring award-winning bands and artists as well as offering a showcase for local talent.┬áThe dance element for the 2019 festival is swing dance and Lindey Hop, with the fabulous Viper Swing and dancers from the Edinburgh Swing dance Society. Our evening concerts feature the Orcadian fiddle power house that is Fara, the 2018 BBC Scotland Young Traditional singer of the year Hannah Rarity, the much lauded Old Blind Dogs and Irish multi-instrumentalist Seamie O’Dowd.

In addition to formal concerts there will be opportunity to participate in our sessions, singarounds and open mics, whether you are a singer or musician or simply wish to 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. For those wanting to improve their skills and gain inspiration, there will be fiddle, guitar and singing workshops along with a swing dance taster lesson. All this is going on in the beautiful Borders town of Kelso, a great tourist destination!
