McGinn Night at Linlithgow

Linlithgow Academy Theatre - Linlithgow Academy, Braehead Road, Linlithgow 

Saturday 28 April 2018

The Linlithgow Folk Festival Association has played an important role in bringing Matt McGinn's work to life again in an innovative and entertaining way.

The Matt McGinn Tribute Night is a major fundraiser for the Linlithgow Folk Festival and all entertainers give their services free as a gesture of support

Proceeds from the show are used at the Festival to organise an outdoor music initiative at Linlithgow Cross - THE NORA DEVINE STAGE - which gives budding artistes the opportunity to perform at the very heart of the Festival. For many years, the late Nora Devine ran the famous Linlithgow Folk Club and brought Matt McGinn to the town on several occasions

Among the performers at this year's event are Falkirk folksters Andy McKean, The Tonkerers and Huroosh

Always a great and fun night!
