Great Summer Line-Up at Torphichen

Skipinnish on the Marches!

In a major coup for our friends at Linlithgow Folk Festival Association, now in its twentieth year, Celtic music giants, Skipinnish will be coming to the town on Saturday June 23rd.

Voted ’Best Live Act’ at the 2017 Trad Music awards, Skipinnish are one of the biggest acts on the vibrant music festival scene at the moment, and their concert in Linlithgow will surely be the hot-ticket event this year at the Marches Marquee at the Rugby Club.

Their large and growing fan base is such that all Skipinnish gigs in 2017 sold out in advance. From Eden Court Theatre in Inverness to The Queens Hall in Edinburgh and from the Albert Halls in Stirling to the famous Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow, every show was full and audiences went wild!

The Barrowland show, which was the band’s biggest gig to date, sold out completely four months before the concert and all gigs announced so far for 2018 are on the way to capacity ticket sales already.

Special events

Atef Agha

We are deeply saddened to hear news of the death of good friend Atef Agha

Before moving from the town, Atef was a regular at Falkirk Folk Club when we were at our Polish Club venue in Williamson Street close to his home at the time. He continued to support the activities of the club from a distance, making it along to events when he could and was always a delight to see there

He was blessed with a generous spirit, was caring and kind with a great sense of humour enjoying the good craic on the club nights as well as the music

He'll be sorely missed by his many friends in the town and work colleagues at Tesco in Redding 

We send best thoughts and condolences to Atef's family and friends both here in Falkirk and in Egypt
