European Folk Day – September the 23rd

European Folk Day: 23rd September 2024

Under the coordination of Tracs, Traditional Arts Culture Scotland, the first Scottish Folk Day will take place on 23 September.

David Francis, Tracs’ director, said: “Folk music is a huge part of Scotland’s culture and heritage, and is still prevalent in the lives of many Scots today. Scottish Folk Day is a means of celebrating that history and keeping the tradition alive by connecting people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds who share one common interest.

“All of us at TMF are thrilled to be running the event in Scotland on behalf of the European Folk Network, and can’t wait to see how individuals, groups or indeed entire musical communities come together to help us celebrate on Saturday, September 23.”
