A live traditional music performance from some of Scotland's most exciting up and coming artists. You will hear beautifully crafted songs in both the Gaelic and Scots languages and lively folk tunes played on fiddles, accordions and other traditional musical instruments.
Fèis Rois established its successful Ceilidh Trail programme in 2000 and started a National Ceilidh Trail for Scotland in 2012. This project has since gone from strength-to-strength and provides opportunities for young musicians from across Scotland to perform in locations across the country. The young musicians are between 16 and 25 and many of them are studying at some of the country’s leading music schools, including the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the University of the Highlands and Islands. This project provides a professional development opportunity and a stepping stone between studying and launching a career as a performing artist.
As well as covering a significant area of the Highlands, Fèis Rois’ Ceilidh Trails visit Aberdeen City and Shire, Dumfries and Galloway, Dundee and Angus, Perth and Kinross, Edinburgh and East Lothian, Glasgow, Fife, Lanarkshire, Perthshire and the Scottish Borders.
Many previous participants of the Fèis Rois Ceilidh Trail have gone onto carve out very successful careers in the Scottish music industry.
