The outstanding Karine Polwart and Blazin’ Fiddles (the current Folk Band Of The Year) will be topping the bill at this year’s festival.
Other headline acts will include The Friel Sisters, The Victorian Trout Conspiracy and local singer/songwriter Alex Hodgson, while the programme will again feature Massed Pipes And Drums, Open Stage, workshops, come-and-try classes, storytelling, pub sessions, and a wide range of family entertainment.
Organised by Haddington Pipe Band in association with the Waterloo Bistro, Trad On The Tyne is now in its fourth year. All the festivals to date have been shortlisted - and won commendations - for the Best Small Festival In Scotland title at the Scottish Event Awards.
