Folk Festival

Walking along the street to collect the papers today we noticed the bunting is up in Stromness already. Puzzled, we suddenly remembered that the 30th Orkney Folk Festival begins tomorrow, Thursday 31st May, which explains everything, although the fact that the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations take place next week may also have something to do with it!

For those of you wanting to check out some of the acts performing at the Folk Festival we have CDs by many of the local performers, including Jeana Leslie & Siobhan Miller, The Wrigley Sisters, The Chair, Saltfishforty, Hadhirgaan, Shoramere, Emily Bourn, Jo Philby, and the Orkney Traditional Music Project. CDs are available for a two week loan period at a cost of 90p per CD.

Fingers crossed that the sun continues to shine for the Folk Festival weekend, and a toe tapping time is had by all!
