S6M-00079: Virtually Orkney Folk Festival 2021

That the Parliament welcomes the Virtually Orkney Folk Festival 2021, which will run online from 27 to 30 May; recognises that this will be the second virtual festival in the event’s 39-year history following its hugely successful Big Lockdown Special last year; understands that it will be streamed on the Orkney Folk Festival Facebook page featuring performances and a series of interviews about stalwarts of the local music scene titled Orkney Folky Folk, compiled by Kristan Harvey and Jeana Leslie; 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 the creation of more wonderful memories.
