Shetland Folk Festival 2015
by Helen Smith -
At the end of the month the Shetland Folk Festival gets underway. If you haven’t got your membership yet, you can buy them again from 4th April. As always, it’s an amazing line up; there’s concerts from Bigton to Cullivoe and the Festival Club at Islesburgh Community Centre is open until the early hours of the morning. There are family concerts, sessions and even some circus workshops, so never a dull moment.
I'm looking forward to seeing visiting acts and local bands. I'm particularly eager to see The Gathering, that brings together the best local talent. In 2013, they shared the stage with the Orkney Gathering - have a look at this fantastic video, I'm sure it'll get your toes tapping!
