Copyright_Sean_Purser_May_2014-4465Whilst we have four days bursting with concerts and ceilidhs (and loads more) to keep you occupied, being at the festival is about much more than sitting and watching others do the work – it’s your chance to take part too. Whether that’s joining the masses of traditional players in the Fiddlers’ Rally, trying your hand at the Open Stage, or getting stuck in to a pub session, we’ve something for you.

And, for those looking to build on their musical or vocal skills, we’ve a few workshops on offer too, taking place in the Stromness Community Centre. Places in all classes are limited, so should be booked in advance.

Details of the 2018 workshop programme will be made available in the spring.
