We've just put day tickets on sale here.
Thursday is Blues Night, headlined by “national treasure” singer, songwriter and star guitarist Ian Siegel. He’s a nine-times British Blues Awards winner, a three-times European Blues Awards winner, and he’s twice won Mojo’s blues album of the year - the magazine branded Siegal "the cleverest writer and most magnetic performer of Blues in the UK”. Alongside Siegel, Southwell welcomes the Daniel Smith Blues Band led by one of the UK’s best boogie-woogie and blues pianists. Also playing, one of the UK's greatest blues vocalists and a fine flautist, Kyla Brox, with Danny Blomeley on guitar.
Friday: Leading the list of Celtic stars at GTSF are the much-celebrated, riotously-entertaining, Stornoway band Peat & Diesel, often branded the “Hebridean Pogues” with their comedic stories of island life as showcased on two acclaimed albums ‘Uptown Fank’ and ‘Light My Byre’. They recently sold out the 10000-seater Glasgow Barrowlands and won Live Act of the Year at the Scottish Trad Music Awards.
Saturday: leading French Canadian band, Le Vent Du Nord (who were a big hit at the festival in both 2012 and 2017) will return to perform again celebrating 20 years on the road. They've enjoyed massive success, performing well over 2,000 concerts over 4 continents and racking up several prestigious awards, including a Grand Prix du Disque Charles Cros, two Junos (Canada’s Grammys), a Félix at ADISQ, a Canadian Folk Music Award, and “Artist of the Year” at Folk Alliance Annual Gala.
Sunday headliners are Irish legends Dervish, BBC Lifetime Achievement Award 2019 winners and one of the best-loved Irish traditional bands over the last 30 years. Fronted by Cathy Jordan, among Ireland’s most famous singers, Dervish have played everywhere from Glastonbury to Rio De Janeiro (in front of 250,000 people) and become international cultural ambassadors along the way. The Guardian described them as “simply brilliant…they carry Irish history with them” and many regard them as the natural heirs to The Bothy Band and The Chieftains.
