This weekend Festival Fling extra brings you some of the artists appearing at this years Girvan Folk Festival as a small taster for this year’s festival which is next weekend 3 – 5 May.
A Special Tribute concert for the late and much missed Bobby Robb (2029 -2012)– for those of you who did not know Bobby listen to him singing at the 2011 festival. Bobby was with the Girvan Folk Club and festival from the start – well kent in around the folk scene not only in Scotland. It was always a complete pleasure to meet up with this gentleman of folk music , to listen to his knowledgeable chat and songs and shanty’s , a firm favourite being the Oggie Man – by Cyril Tawney – who when Bobby met him asked why it was such a short song! Cyril replied that he had said it all by then! Gone but never forgotten
Appearing at the festival are:-
The Voice Squad
Up in The Air
The Spiers Family
Martin Wyndam Read
Estonian Story Tellers
Malcolm Bushby and Rosie Lindsay
Suitecase Circus and Trevor Organ
Nick Caffrey and Ed McGurk
