Bogha-frois: LGBT+ Voices in Folk is the result of a workshop project which brought LGBT+ folk musicians from across the country come together to write, collaborate and perform songs in the folk tradition, telling stories about life as a member of the LGBT community.
Led by Rachel Sermanni, Radio 2 Young Folk Award winner and LGBT+ ally Josie Duncan, Young Traditional Folk Musician of the Year Finalist Grant McFarlane, fiddle player Laura Wilkie, and string player Marit Fält as well as organiser Pedro Cameron, aka Man of the Minch – the concert will showcase the work created with performances from the tutors and participants as well as a short documentary film made during the creative process. There will also be special performances from Michigan-born dancer Nic Gareiss and Kim Carnie.
Supported by Creative Scotland and Outspoken Arts Scotland the project aims give a platform and voice to the LGBT+ community in the traditional and folk music scene in Scotland.
