The Tweed ProjectThe Tweed Project is a collaboration between some of Scotland and England’s most in-demand explorers of their respective country’s folk traditions. After a successful year of performances in 2015, the project has been reborn with a new line-up for 2019. The aim of the project is to find common ground between the Scottish and English folk tradition- two cultures which live extremely separate lives despite sharing so many similarities.This year’s line up includes two time BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar who have also been involved in other huge projects and bands including The Transports, Shake the Chains (Greg) and Sam Kelly and the Lost Boys (Ciaran). Ciaran's fellow Lost Boys bandmate Evan Carson ione of the most in-demand drummers on the UK Folk scene. 2017 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award winners Josie Duncan and Pablo Lafuente, and Ali Levack one of the most respected young pipe and whistle players in Scotland.Otley Courthouse Bar opens 45 minutes before the event start time.
