While the ‘IRL’ festival has had to be cancelled due to COVID-19, TMSA Keith Branch are keen to ensure that Scottish traditional music and song enthusiasts don’t miss out on their ‘Keith fix’. The committee have accordingly organised for the Festival to become a virtual one instead.

Over the course of what would have been the Keith Festival weekend – Friday 12th to Sunday 14th June 2020 – many of the events that would’ve been held are moving online and on to radio.

On Friday the Festival’s Facebook page will be host to a Virtual Dance using footage from the last 5 years of old time dances and there will be a live sing-a-round where people can join in at home with some of their favourite songs. Meanwhile, on KCR an archive show from the 25th Festival will be broadcast. The show, which was aired just weeks after the Festival’s Silver Jubilee, was presented by the late Charlie Johnston and consists recordings of sessions and special performances from singers and musicians who were at the festival that year.

Saturday will see a series of Virtual Concerts broadcast on Facebook over the course of the evening consisting of special performances by many of those who were due to perform at the Festival. Radio listeners will be able to hear a mixed concert of music and song just like being at one of the Festival’s concerts.

Finally, on Sunday, KCR will host a 2 hour selection of Scottish dance music whilst over on Facebook there will be some archive footage from previous Festivals including some previous Chorus Cup winners. The Virtual Festival will conclude with a very special performance of The Festival O Keith – widely seen as the Festival’s ‘anthem’ which is always sung at the end of the Festival weekend.
