Edinburgh Tradfest returns for 2019, kicking off at the Queen's Hall on Friday 26 April with live music from anarchic Irish folk band Lankum.
Tradfest was originally launched in 2013, as a festival showcasing the very best in traditional arts. Its roots are in the Edinburgh Folk Festival and the festival was previously organised by TRACS (Traditional Arts and Culture Scotland), who are based at the Scottish Storytelling Centre, Edinburgh. This year, the Festival will come under new direction from The Soundhouse Organisation and its programme will focus on traditional music and song.
The Soundhouse Organisation is a charitable body that promotes independent music. Since 2016, The Soundhouse Organisation has programmed music concerts at Edinburgh Tradfest and will manage the whole Festival from this year onwards. Throughout the year, The Soundhouse Organisation regularly programmes music at the Traverse Bar in Edinburgh.
Prices: £11 - £19.50
