There is a special exhibition celebrating over 40 years of the festival at Celtic Connectiions – details below.

The Festival started in 1975, a time when folk music in Scotland was increasingly exploring its own roots. The core of the photographic exhibition catches many people at an interesting stage of their musical journeys. They had been around long enough to have established their identity but with long roads ahead of them. For many people this period is seen as a golden age. It was a time of creativity in all areas of music but was a particularly key period for folk music in Scotland. The exhibition features photographs over the years with commentary.
