Thread Name: Girvan Folk Festival
Subject: RE: Girvan Folk Festival

On the Ayrshire coast of Scotland south west of Glasgow. Great festival. Because of its proximity to the ferry boats from Ireland and also not too far from the English border it creates a wonderful mixture of music and song from all the different traditions. There are concerts too, but most go for the sessions. A real musicians festival with a very healthy ratio of musicians to listeners.
