Scottish Festival to include Polish bands.

I found this today. I think it's a great idea if they can make it work. Wickerman Festival.

The BBC said:
A bid is being made to give an alternative music festival in south west Scotland a Polish flavour.

Organisers of the Wickerman event near Kirkcudbright hope to reach out to the growing community in Dumfries and Galloway and further afield.

That includes incorporating bands from Poland in the line-up and producing publicity material for Polish speakers.

I think this would be fun and I'd like to meet more Poles

Well, if they could encourage Polish bands to play there I'm sure it would entice some Polish people to attend. It's in July so you'd be hoping the weather would be nice... :S

Well, it's still Scottish winter, I'm afraid ;)

lol - true. I was being overly optimistic there ;)

Although, I'm hoping they do recruit some Polish bands. I have friends in Kirkcudbright so I might head to the festival. I'll wait on a more confirmed line-up though...

Hi there... how about the Polish Spring festival in Perth? Polish Culture.

I once tried to get Celtic Connections to include some Polish bands. It was like banging my head against a brick wall. I provided CDs and info of some of the biggest and successful traditional and klezmer bands and was told, "Maybe they could come and play the open stage!"

If you like tha crack as much as the music you should try to get to Barrafest.

Warning - the clip was taken on a phone, not the best quality but it does capture the spirit of things
