Friday Night Opening Concert

Stonehaven Folk Festival Opening Concert

Featuring Friday night Town Hall, Flook, Paddy Buchanan Band and Choras

Flook, Choras and the Paddy Buchanan Band

Flook: Taking inspiration from their roots in the Irish and English traditions, Flook have an enviable trademark sound, weaving and spinning traditionally rooted tunes over precise acoustic grooves, with a rare blend of fiery technical brilliance, delicate ensemble interaction and a bold, adventurous musical imagination. There is certainly no shortage of virtuosity amongst the members of Flook, but the unique impact of this band stems from the wholly intuitive, almost symbiotic, exchange between the various flutes, frets and skins.

Rura, Kris Drever and Deira

RURA are a multi award-winning act and one of Scotland’s most sought-after folk bands. With three heralded albums, RURA affirm their position as one of Scotland’s leading instrumental groups. Their exquisitely rugged yet refined blend of fiddle, Highland pipes, flute, bodhrn and guitar has won a devoted following in many corners of the globe, amongst audiences and critics alike.

...a brilliant fusion of the old and the new...

— The Herald

Kris Drever - Cherished and admired in equal measure by listeners and fellow musicians, award-winning guitarist, singer, songwriter and prolific collaborator Kris Drever has been a leading light on the UK roots scene for well over a decade. A highly skilled guitarist who adroitly blends traditional folk and flat picking with more contemporary influences – allied to a distinctively relaxed and poised vocal burr – Drever is an astonishingly fine interpreter of others’ songs, with an increasingly frequent knack for concocting seriously smart lyrical observations and earworm melodies of his own.

DEIRA - Awarded with first prize in The Battle Of Folk Bands at Celtic Connections 2022, Deira is a trio based in Asturias (Spain). Their music has a strong connection with scottish music as they are influenced and inspired from many musicians in the scene. Their style is presented as a renewal of traditional music, with contemporary arrangements and atmospheres. They started playing together in 2019 when they were hired to play every night in the Asturias tent at Interceltic Festival of Lorient in Brittany.

Sunday Night Closing Concert

Stonehaven Folk Festival - Closing Concert

Featuring the Paul McKenna Band, HECLA and Shooglenifty

Shooglenifty, Paul McKenna and HECLA

Shooglenifty - Shooglenifty was formed in 1990 by musicians from the Scottish Highlands, Orkney and Edinburgh. Its bright spark was the idea of fusing traditional and traditional-sounding melodies with the beats and basslines of a mixed bag of more contemporary influences. As happy playing a small highland village hall as they are on an outdoor festival stage playing to tens of thousands, the Shoogles (as they’re known to their fans) have promoted Scottish music all over the world for three decades.

Hopes that they would finally settle down to the quiet life were dashed when they accepted an invitation to start 2020 in style by performing at midnight for Edinburgh’s Hogmanay. The band played gigs in the north of Scotland in February 2020 before all dates for the rest of the year were cancelled, postponed or put on hold due to the Coronvirus pandemic.

For 2022 they are keeping everything crossed for getting on the road again with dates in the calendar from May.

Paul McKenna Band - Scotland’s Paul McKenna has long been ranked among our finest younger singers and songwriters, armed with a powerful yet intensely emotive voice and passionate social conscience, often expressed through his songs, a combination that’s brought frequent comparisons to the great Dick Gaughan. He and his band – comprising Robbie Greig (fiddle), Conal McDonagh (pipes/whistles), Conor Markey (banjo/bouzouki/guitars) and Ewan Baird (percussion) – draw on both Scottish and Irish roots, in a dynamic, full-bodied array of original and traditional material, along with songs by like-minded authors.

HECLA feature Ailis Sutherland (pipes/whistles), Ilona Kennedy (fiddle) and Kaitlin Ross (guitar/vocals) playing tunes and songs in the Scottish and Irish tradition as well as self penned tunes and Gaelic songs.
