music

The full line-up of events, gigs and workshops will be finalised over the coming weeks. We will let you know. The music programme is pretty much full already (we have invited many musicians who were booked for 2020 and 2021) so it is unlikely that we will be booking any more at the moment. However, musicians/artists who would like to perform, get in touch with info@scottishanarchofolkfest.com and we let you know if we can accommodate any more. Otherwise, there we are planning sessions and an open mic for performers who are not on the festival “bill”.

So far we can present you these music events:

James Bar Bowen

Deeply rooted in punkrock culture and antifascist politics as well as folk traditions of the British Isles and beyond. Poetic and thought-provoking songs tell personal and political stories from a variety of perspectives, with an enthusiastic (and at times even optimistic) engagement with bigger social, political and philosophical ideas.
