An event not to be missed! – the hotly anticipated return to Linlithgow of the multi award-winning celtic music band THE OUTSIDE TRACK!

The band’s marriage of celtic music, song and dance has been rapturously received around the world. Hailing from Scotland, Ireland and Cape Breton in Canada, its five members are united by a love of traditional music and a commitment to creating new music with this as a foundation.

They blend fiddle, accordion, harp, guitar, whistle, step-dance and vocals with breathtaking vitality. Their blend of boundless energy and unmistakeable joie de vivre has won them a large following around the globe.

Live Ireland radio station called them, ‘among the top bands in the world – stunning on every cut.’ They were a huge hit at our 2013 Festival and we are delighted to have them back again.


19 year old Katee Kross from Bishopbriggs has been making music since she was 11 and first appeared at Linlithgow Folk Festival on the outdoor Nora Devine Stage at the Cross. She has already worked with some of the biggest names on the Scottish scene, such as Barbara Dickson, Karine Polwart and Dougie MacLean. She has appeared at Celtic Connections and other major festivals, as well as making her TV debut on Scottish Television’s Riverside Show. Katee is a prolific and very talented songwriter and her debut CD, ‘Beautiful Dreamer’ – launched in early April – is already onto its first reprint. The CD features many of Katee’s own compositions, which she is currently performing on a busy gig schedule throughout Scotland.
