Marymass Folk Festival

24 August 2017 - 28 August 2017

00:00 am

Vineburgh Community Centre

Irvine

Marymass Folk Festival is part of the town’s annual Marymass Celebrations.  It was set up in 1968 by members of Irvine Folk Club.  The Folk Festival became very popular very quickly not just locally but nationally and was in many ways a forerunner of the many other folk festivals which followed throughout Scotland.  The festival is rooted in the community and was set up to bring top artists to Irvine.

There are concerts, sessions, an open stage competition, community concerts and not forgetting two World Championships – the amazing Whammy-Diddling and the even more amazing Chuckie-Chucking.  Umpteen good reasons therefore to come to Irvine in the third week in August…..and we haven’t even mentioned the other attractions happening in the town at that time – a Horse-Drawn Parade, Fireworks Display, Flower Show, local Football Derby, 10K Road Race, Heritage Tours……..  Irvine in August – come and join us!

The detailed programme for the Festival will be available from Irvine Folk Club, Vineburgh Community Centre and local libraries in July

Artists booked so far:
Stavanger Harbour Band, Stephen and Pernille Quigg, The Jeremiahs, Sangsters, Sunjay, Celine Donohue and Neil Sturgeon, Archie Fisher, Adam McNaughtan, Arthur Johnstone and Alastair McDonald.
