Linlithgow Oxfam Group Folk Night
We are happy to advertise the Linlithgow Oxfam Group annual Folk Night – one of the major ways in which the group collects money for the crucial work of Oxfam across the world.
On Saturday 27th October, Linlithgow Academy Theatre will play host to several of Scotland’s favourite performers.
Back by popular request, Sangsters’ unique style of close-harmony music, combined with Fiona’s special brand of song introduction, makes them longstanding favourites of west Lothian audiences, and they really don’t get over the river from Fife often enough!
Linties are great favourites of Linlithgow audiences, and their performances at Linlithgow Folk Festival’s Matt McGinn Nights are only one aspect of their musical talent and versatility.
Cockleroy (Neil Macdonald and Bob Proudfoot) are two of West Lothian’s hardest-working and most versatile performers, with a huge repertoire of tunes and songs, many of which they have written themselves. They can regularly be seen playing at Linlithgow Farmers’ Market, and are looking forward to performing in the warm!
Support will be provided by:
Sangschule, West Lothian’s own traditional song group with a membership drawn from across the district and beyond.
There will be a licensed bar, Oxfam and Fairtrade stalls.
Starts 7.30 pm (doors open 7.00 pm).
Tickets: £10 (Conc. £8) (unreserved seating) available from ‘Celebrate Linlithgow’ box office at:

MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards 2011
Linlithgow Folk Festival was one of four nominees for the Event of the Year award at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards. Friends of the festival were kind enough to nominate us, and then vote for us.
The prestigious showcase event was held on Saturday 3rd December in Perth Concert Hall.
Unfortunately we didnt come home with the award. Well done to Orkney Folk Festival who came out on top. However, we are very happy that we were even considered for this award - and roll on next year!
The MG ALBA TRAD AWARDS ceremony will be shown on BBC ALBA at 10pm on Monday 5th December and repeated on Friday 9th December at 9pm (a 90 minute programme).
