Lomond Folk Festival: Day 3!
A jam packed day of music to hear, things to see, do & try at both sites on The Moss o’ Balloch & Loch Lomond Shores.
Both open stages (one at each site) start at 12:30 and run to 6pm, with free music on all day. St Kessogs Church Hall hosts music workshops if you want to try your hand at the whistle, ukulele, guitar or bodhran and the fiddle workshop is at The Gateway Centre at 11:45am. Those looking to join in at a session are advised to head alon to The Maid of The Loch, just along from Loch Lomond Shores for the sessions run from 1pm ’til 1am with Mary K Burke. There are also loads of great, young, local performers from various dance groups, Singer Station, and Folk Factor Winners, The OLSP Trad Band, have a second performance after supporting Skerryvore yesterday, at The Gateway Centre this afternoon.
For those looking for something a bit different, why not come along to the Moss o’ Balloch Marquee at 5pm & join in the Hula Hooping Workshop with Stakatto Blue, one of Glasgow’s top hooping performers! Sure to be a lot of fun for all ages!
Tonights closing evening concert at The Gateway Centre features The Skunnered, The Paul McKenna Band & the legendary Phil & Aly, doors are at 7pm (VIP ticket holders have access from 5pm for the soundchecks) & the gig starts at 7:30pm & will finish just before Midnight. Tickets are £18 and are available from the Festival Booking Office at The Moss o’ Balloch, Loch Lomond Gift House on Balloch Road & at The Gateway Centre cafe during the day. Any remaning tickets will be sold on the door but sales are going very well & we cannot garuntee entry without a ticket so we advise anyone wishing to come to pick onte up in advance if possible.
See you all there & we hope you have a wonderful day (& let’s hope the rain stays away today!)
