  • The Festival will take place with the usual fantastic mix of traditional music, dance and song between the 6th - 10th of September.  

    Some of Scotland’s most exciting young traditional musicians will take centre stage at this year’s Linlithgow Folk Festival in September and the organisers are claiming that the event will be the biggest and best yet. 

    As well as the headline act BARLUATH – who are a diverse and innovative young Glasgow-based band – the five days of the Festival will also see appearances by emerging talent, such as BBC Young Traditional musician of the year, fiddler Charlie Stewart, the guitarist, Luc McNally, the award-winning singer, Iona Fyfe and Linlithgow’s very own Town Piper, Ross Miller.
