So here we go after 2 years of cancellations the Big Orkney Folk Festival is back and to kick it all off the Stromness RBL Pipe Band rise to the challenge as the first act of the opening Concert in the Town Hall on Thursday evening at 7.30pm. As at previous Folk Festivals we set the tone and the atmosphere at the start of four days of wall to wall folky music. If you haven’t got a ticket it’s too late. But we are playing in the street at the Pierhead on Saturday 28th at 2.pm followed by the Kirkwall City Pipe Band around 2.30pm, then a few tunes as a massed band to complete an hour + of piping and drumming. CU there.
Some folk play the folky music for the other folk who like to just listen to the folky folk playing the folky music and they all have a folky good time.
