Information about the Stonehaven Folk Festival with venues and musical acts and performers

Each year, usually in July, Stonehaven host a Folk Festival at local venues such as Stonehaven Town Hall, St Bridgets Hall, Heugh Hotel, Market Square, Waterfront Cafe, Open Air Pool, Beach Pavilion and the Belvedere Hotel. Throughout the years, since 1988, the Stonehaven Folk Festival has attracted some top folk singers, folk bands and groups. In addition to live performances visitors can attend workshops to learn musical instruments such as the fiddle and can even take part in the paper and comb championships or watch fun events like the aqua ceilidh.

I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.

The Stonehaven Folk Festival 2015 takes place from 9 to 12 July.
