Penfest 2020 – Eastgate Garden Ceilidhs

Lovers of traditional music are missing their fix of outdoor summer festivals this year. That thought inspired Penicuik folk club member Jon Redpath to create The Eastgate Garden Ceilidh together with friends, Pat and Julian Goodacre. And so 18 acts, one after the other, were videoed in a beautiful garden to create a wonderful 90 minutes of music, song and spoken word, all showcasing the talents of local people.

Here are the YouTube links to the Eastgate Friends Garden Ceilidhs. We hope you enjoy them, and perhaps we can help their cause too (see links below)!
