Welcome to the Northern Streams Festival 21-23 April 2017

‘…something out of the ordinary’ The Herald

For three days in April this truly unique festival combines one off concerts with dynamic and exciting workshops.


In 2017 we added Finland to our list of countries we had guests appearing from around the North Sea/Nordic regions along with guests from Scandinavia and Scotland.

For the past 13 years the Traditional Music and Song Association of Scotland (Edinburgh & Lothians Branch), have been bringing the finest in Nordic and Scottish music, song and dance to enthusiastic audiences in Edinburgh. And we are once again taking place in the Grassmarket Centre, Edinburgh – check out the venue page for details – please join us!

Thanks to those who entered the early ticket purchase draw to WIN a £20 voucher for use at the Grassmarket Centre Cafe during the Festival – the winner has been contacted.

Great Edinburgh Run alert – the roads open at 2pm at the latest, so just in time to come to our Open Session on Sunday 23 April.

Explore our concerts, workshops and artist pages for details of this year’s festival. And you can book through the link on tickets page.
