Girvan’s 40th Traditional Folk Festival 2nd to 4th May 2014
This year, 2014, marks the 40th Girvan Folk Festival which started in 1975, a time when folk music in Scotland was increasingly exploring its own roots.
The core of the photographic exhibition catches many people at an interesting stage of their musical journeys. They had been around long enough to have established their identity but with long roads ahead of them. For many people this period is seen as a golden age.
It was a time of creativity in all areas of music, but was a particularly key period for folk music in Scotland. The exhibition will feature photographs over the years with commentary.
