Jenn & LB

Jenn & LB

Jenn Butterworth and Laura-Beth Salter are no strangers to the Arran Folk Festival ad we are delighted to welcome them back this year to headline our opening night.
Meeting through the thriving folk music scene in their adopted home of Glasgow, the two singers and musicians have formed a very tight-knit act, their rhythms and harmonies blending seamlessly together.
As well as performing as a duo, Jenn & LB are also founder members of Kinnaris Quintet who have steadily been storming the UK festival scene.

Maeve MackinnonTrio

Maeve Mckinnon Trio

Maeve Mackinnon, a graduate of the RSAMD and Sabhal Mor Ostaig, released her debut album "Don't Sing Love Songs" back in 2007. Last year saw the release of Maeve's third album "Stri" to four and five star reviews.
Between albums, Maeve has toured internationally with her own band and with acts such as 'McFall's Chamber' and 'Salsa Celtica'. In 2015 she was featured vocal soloist at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo playing to crowds of 3000 per night.
Maeve appears at our Folk Festival with her regular trio : the fantastic Brian McAlpine (Session A9) and the wonderful Ross Martin (Daimh).

Bobby Watt

Bobby Watt

Bobby Watt is Arran born and bred but has spent his adult life in Canada. A multi-talented man - singer, songwriter, stonemason, scuba diver! - we are delighted to welcome Bobby 'home' as part of our 25t Anniversary line-up.
In fact, it was Bobby who organised the very first Arran Folk Festival away back in the early Seventies as a means to raise funds to start a diving club on the island.
Bobby has performed with numerous bands, starting with 'Cromdale' and more recently with 'Ecosse', but is here performing solo for us. Still one of the best male voices in folk music, we can't think of a better way to get this year's Festival off to the perfect start!
