This year will be a little different – a free outdoor stage featuring Martin Carthy, Janice Burns & Jon Doran, Graham Pirt, Ape House, Newcastle Kingsmen, Saturday 10th July 2021 12.30pm – 4pm.

We are going ahead with the outdoor stage, see you there!

If the pubs are open we would expect that some ad hoc jam sessions will happen too – although these are not officially organised festival events they are a vital part of the festival too.

Put Saturday 10th July reserved in your diaries for a brilliant musical day in Rothbury!

The Rothbury Traditional Music Festival Committee.

Rothbury Traditional Music Festival is a small, friendly, community-run festival set in the heart of Northumberland, in the beautiful Coquet Valley.  Over the last four decades it has established a unique atmosphere, drawing musicians, dancers and singers from throughout the country and beyond to spend a weekend sharing music and experiencing Northumbrian traditions.
