Scottish Traditional Music, and new music in traditional style, has increased in popularity in recent decades. There has been a significant increase in people in Scotland learning traditional instruments, while opportunities for formal qualifications in traditional music now exist. There is increased attention now given to the promotion of Gaelic music.

There are opportunities to listen to traditional music from festivals to informal sessions in pubs.  Piping is continuing to flourish while ceilidh dancing allows one to enjoy  the music and participate in traditional dancing.

The annual Scottish Traditional Music Awards and the Young Scottish Traditional Musician Award have further raised the profile of the music.

We have been organising traditional music events and ceilidh dances since 1997. During this time, we have been fortunate to book many of Scotland's finest singers and musicians, as well as artists from outwith Scotland. See Folk Club page for our monthly series of concerts at Craigie Village Hall, Craigie, by Kilmarnock, Ayrshire. We can also supply traditional singers and musicians for a wide range of events, including school workshops.
