For the seventh year in a row Edinburgh Tradfest will bring traditional musicians to the capital along with some films and storytelling. Even if the actual programme is still at the printers the programme is online and tickets are now on sale.
The first concert will be at The Queen’s Hall on 26 April 2019 with anarchic folk band Lankum. Over 11 days there will be singing and fiddle playing from a wide variety of acts and at a wide variety of venues including Leith Depot and the Scottish Storytelling Centre.
If you fancy a little taste of what’s to come then you can go and see Adam Sutherland tonight at the Gilded Balloon. He and James Mackintosh entertained us in the foyer upstairs in the Traverse building. How effortless it all looked!
This is a festival not to be missed. It is programmed by Douglas Robertson of Soundhouse and supported by Creative Scotland and The City of Edinburgh Tattoo Culture Fund.
