On Festival Fling, Liz Clark is looking forward to this coming weekend’s The Orkney Folk Festival 22 – 25 May Liz will be at the festival to interview performers and record live sessions and concerts for future broadcast on Celtic Music Radio.
Festival Fling is on some of the home grown talent that lives on the island. From Jo Philby from her last CD ‘Beneath The Stary Sky’ to the young band Broken Strings who were winners in 2010 and 2011 of the Open Stage in Orkney and The Danny Kyle Open Stage at Celtic Connections.
No festival would now be complete with Orkney’s own The Chair – a eight piece stomp band that are an asset to every tent or stage they have performed on!
From this year’s Danny Kyle Open Stage at Celtic Connections, the stunning young guitarist Griogair Morris the winner at the Orkney Folk Festival Open Stage in 2013. I will play you his set from the Final Saturday at the festival .
We will then go with a visiting band to the festival with Celtic Music Radio’s own Paddy Callaghan and his trio who will be appearing at not only the Orkney Folk Festival but also at Stonehaven Folk Festival 10 – 13 July. A wonderful concert from this year’s St Patrick’s Festival in Glasgow .
Hope you enjoy the concerts.
My thanks to John Weatherby, Kris Korn and Ian Clelland of Sounsense.biz
