The Inaugural Virtual Orkney Folk Festival


That the Parliament welcomes the Orkney Folk Festival: Big 2020 Lockdown Special, which will run online from 21 to 24 May; recognises that this will be the first virtual festival in the event’s 38-year history; understands that it will be streamed on the Orkney Folk Festival Facebook page and will feature a series of performances and highlights from previous years; commends the Festival Committee on adapting to current circumstances and organising the programme to ensure that people in Orkney and around the world will be able to enjoy and stay connected to this popular and internationally-renowned festival; hopes that the virtual festival will also allow new audiences to be reached and generate a wider interest in folk music, paving the way for the festival to continue growing for years to come, and wishes everyone involved a successful virtual festival, full of great entertainment and wonderful nostalgia.
