Newcastleton Traditional Music Festival


Newcastleton is probably the longest running traditional music festival in Scotland and has essentially maintained the same successful format since its inception in 1970.

The festival is centred on friendly competitions – everything from Border ballad singing – original new songs written in a traditional style – instrumental sections including all instruments and players – culminating in the winners performing at the Grand Concert. Some of the bestknown singers and players in Scottish folk and traditional music, of today and from the past, have their names engraved on the trophies at Newcastleton.

Denholm Folk Festival

Thursday 2nd November to Sunday 5th November

This small but perfectly formed festival has gained a great reputation for quality.

A small village set in the Teviot valley with two pubs, a church, a village hall and a very interesting new primary school, Denholm overflows with great music during this weekend.

The programme consists of Friday and Saturday concerts and late evenings at the Festival Club. (Artists to be announced). Plus a free, church concert on the Sunday, all make for a fantastic weekend – not to mention the continual sessions..
