Tickets for most events are available from the Braemar Pharmacy & Newsagent and also on line at:


Friday 10th May - The Paul McKenna Band

“The best folk band to have come out of Scotland in the last twenty years” New York Times

“The best band of their generation” (The Living Tradition)

“A band with the potential to dominate the Scottish/Irish traditional scene for the next twenty years” (Fatea Magazine)

Scotland’s Paul McKenna has long been ranked among our finest younger singers and songwriters, armed with a powerful yet intensely emotive voice and passionate social conscience, often expressed through his songs, a combination that’s brought frequent comparisons to the great Dick Gaughan.

He and his band – comprising Robbie Greig (fiddle), Conal McDonagh (pipes/whistles), Conor Markey (banjo/bouzouki/guitars) and Ewan Baird (percussion) – draw on both Scottish and Irish roots, in a dynamic, full-bodied array of original and traditional material, along with songs by like-minded authors including Peggy Seeger, Alistair Hulett and Jim Reid. Following 2016’s tenth anniversary release Paths That Wind, they’re currently at work on their fifth album.

Monday 2nd September - Ross Ainslie & Tim Edey

7.30 p.m. (doors open 7.00 p.m.) £15, BYOB

Award-winning musical geniuses who are old friends and two of the best musicians of their generation come together for this rare demonstration of their combined talents at Braemar.

  Tim (guitar, melodeon), 'is brilliant – in every which way. As a guitarist he has few peers. As a box player he's a magician. As a character he's "off the scale" (Colin Irwin, fRoots).

  Ross, one of Scotland's finest traditional musicians and composers (pipes, whistles, cittern) is an acclaimed soloist and prolific collaborator with a long list of high profile awards and nominations going back as far as 2005 including Scots Trad Music Awards Instrumentalist of the Year (2015), Composer of the Year (2015) and Album of the Year (2016).

Friday 13th September - Phil Cunningham and Ally Bain

Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham have become a national institution with their incomparable mastery of fiddle and accordion, bringing excellence in traditional music to venues across the country. Individually they pursue other ventures in performance, television and education but it is when they tour together that they truly shine with over quarter of a century of well honed skills and hilarious banter delighting audiences everywhere. We are delighted that they have decided to return to Braemar during their 2019 Tour.
