GUEST,GC Girvan @ Celtic Connections (11) Girvan @ Celtic Connections 17 Jan 14


Girvan has hosted a folk festival for almost 40 years and to celebrate this milestone there will be a number of events leading up to the festival over the MayDay holiday weekend. The first of these is a special exhibition at Celtic Connectiions details below.

2014 marks the 40th Girvan Folk Festival. The Festival started in 1975, a time when folk music in Scotland was increasingly exploring its own roots. The core of the photographic exhibition catches many people at an interesting stage of their musical journeys. They had been around long enough to have established their identity but with long roads ahead of them. For many people this period is seen as a golden age. It was a time of creativity in all areas of music but was a particularly key period for folk music in Scotland. The exhibition will feature photographs over the years with commentary.

The exhibition is in the main bar area at the Royal Concert Hall throughout Celtic Connections 2014.

Enabled with financial support from South Ayrshire Council.
