Traditional and new Scottish folk music.
We invite you to join us at our end of festival party which will be illuminated with entertainment from The Maxwell Quartet. With three members of the group having grown up with the Scottish folk tradition – and the fourth having been granted ‘honorary status’! – this is no mere ‘add-on’, but rather “a chance to combine classical music with our own compositions, finding links in style, theme and character.” The result is infectiously entertaining!
“A fascinating, magical experience… The Maxwells were persuasive players…characterful, and beautifully paced playing” –The Arts Desk
Tickets £6.00 (includes a free drink on arrival).
Opportunities will be available at the party to make donations which will support future festival programmes and the development of our Learning and Participation activities, allowing us to bring music to more people of all ages across the Scottish Borders.
