Pureous Bunkamous…abundant Holm humour

 
 
 

Prepare for lift-off Copshaw – this coming weekend is like no other in the village’s calendar. Not just one major event, but two – both full of music, song, poetry, ancient modern traditions, people on bikes and guaranteed shedloads of sheer shenanigans.

Waving farewell to June and ushering July in with a flourish, the fun starts on Friday with the opening of the Newcastleton Traditional Music Festival – the 54th to be precise. It’s been a much-loved part of the social scene ever since members of the old Accordion and Fiddle Club started to think they could set their sights a bit higher and grow a bit bigger.

Grow they certainly did, right out of their original meeting place in the Liddesdale Hotel (then known as the Commercial) to become what’s now recognised as one of the most welcoming and family-friendly traditional music festivals to be found anywhere in the UK.
