In its second edition after a triumphant debut in 2013, TradFest returned between 29 Apr - 11 May 2014 as Edinburgh’s only multi-arts festival dedicated to traditional culture and folk arts.

Rooted in the past yet intrinsically connected to the present, Scottish and international artists combined with local performers for an exciting fortnight of performance, boasting over eighty events and shows, spread across twenty six venues in Edinburgh.

‘Their weaving together of Scots and Gaelic on their Miller To My Trade medley gained fabulous momentum and a quality of vocal sound that made it exciting just to be in the same room.’ (Rob Adams on Crossing Points)

‘this inspired collaboration was a succession of work songs which slipped seamlessly between bawdy Lowland tales of randy millers and gossipy Gaelic waulking songs.’ (Jim Gilchrist, the Scotsman on Crossing Points)
