Loanhead Festival and Folk at the Loo

Celia and I will be super busy this weekend, playing at two different festivals and travelling to Scotland and back to do so.

First up is the Loanhead Music Festival on Friday. We’ll be playing in the concert in the Miners’ Club on Friday night at 7.30, alongside Kathy Stewart and Her Frequent Flyers and the Gallus Crows. Then on Saturday 2.00 – 3.00 I will be teaching a tin whistle workshop, also in the Miners’ Club.

We’ll be heading back from Loanhead on Saturday night, then off again on Sunday, this time in a southerly direction, to Blackpool for Folk at the Loo. This is a two-day event run jointly by Carla Farrar Music and the Waterloo Hotel, and showcases some amazing bands, including Troubadour, Cartoon Food, Phantom Voices and The Sail Pattern, all of whom are my particular favourites to see live! An unfamiliar (to me) band are The Blackaways, and a couple of solo artistes, Adam Smith and Emily Kate, but all of these come with rave reviews too.

Celia Briar and I are playing on the Sunday evening of this event, and I am only sorry I can’t be there for the Saturday as well to watch the rest of the acts. The good news is that we will be there to see the amazing Phantom Voices, who are astonishingly good.

This event is definitely well worth going to, especially as the whole weekend is free entry!
