Trad Music Awards

Scots Trad Music Awards, 2007 - Fort William, Dec 1, 2007. This turned out to be a really wonderful event, great music, good company and a celebration of the vibrant traditional music scene in Scotland. Pete Heywood and Colin McNab were joined by Phil Brown and Seamus Heffernan of BBC Radio Lancashire to represent The Living Tradition. Pete was busy again with his camera - but too busy enjoying himself to get as many photos as last year. Check out a few of the photos with this link. Click here for Trad Music Awards, 2007 pictures

Buddy McMaster at Celtic Colours

Celtic Colours, 2007 - Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Over 11 years, this festival has become one of the 'major league' celtic festivals. Claiming inspiration from The Shetland Folk Festival and Celtic Connections in Glasgow, Celtic Colours puts its own unique culture at the heart of its festival. Pete and Heather Heywood attended the festival, Pete was busy with his camera. With a huge range of events this is only a limited viewpoint, but does give a flavour of the festival.

Eddie Walker at Marymass Folk Festival - click for more pictures

Marymass Folk Festival, 2007 - 40th Anniversary. This year Marymass celebrated 40 years of their folk festival which is held within the framework of a much older local community festival. It was encouraging to see so many young local musicians taking part - teaching projects, mainly centred on North Ayrshire, are clearly having an impact. Pete Heywood was there with his camera.
