Girvan Traditional Folk Festival is hoping to raise £500 through crowdfunding to help engage with next generations of musicians and festival-goers

The festival has always been family friendly and this year it’s making a special effort to connect with the next generation of young musicians and festival-goers.

This year is the 43rd annual Girvan Traditional Folk Festival. It runs from Friday, April 28 to Sunday 30 and the Craic never stops with three days of concerts, open sessions, competitions and children’s events in the friendly atmosphere of the Ayrshire coastal town.

The festival has been introducing new artistes to the South Ayrshire area, showcasing established artistes, and providing a variety of workshops to local people every May Day Holiday weekend since 1975.

You can help them to do that.

Please give a donation on the just giving website no matter how large or small so that they can reach the £500 target.

They will use the money this year to fund activities specially for children. And if this year’s fundraising succeeds then they’ll use crowdfunding in future to support the other changes. Visit www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/GirvanTraditionalFolkFestival-kids-activities-2017
