Saturday Concert 25th February, 11 am: Scott Gardiner, singer
Scott Gardiner is one of Scotland’s top traditional singers and has been performing at concerts and festivals across the country since his schooldays. Brought up on a flatland farm in historic Forfarshire, he is best known for singing the bothy ballads and songs of the north-east.
Career highlights include representing Scotland at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in the USA; winning the Bothy Ballad World Championship in Elgin; two nominations for Scots Singer of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards and, along with guitarist Johnny Kemp, becoming the first performer to get a Mexican wave going at Dunfermline Folk Club!
Scott combines a love and knowledge of Scots song with a rich melodic voice and mischievous sense of humour – this is an event not to be missed!
