Aberdeen Show: Scottish Polish Mini Festival 4th March

The 𝗞𝗢𝗦𝗬 band consists of four charismatic, socially responsible artists: Aleksandra Gronowska, Kasia Pakosa, Anastazja Sosnowska, Kasia Szetela-Pękosz.
On stage, they combine their arrangements with traditional, folk material. They do this in the company of many instruments: harmonium, hurdy-gurdy, ring drums, violin, viola, sansula and various percussion instruments.
𝗜𝗢𝗡𝗔 𝗙𝗬𝗙𝗘 Aberdeenshire folk singer, Iona Fyfe, has become one of Scotland’s finest singers, rooted deeply in the singing traditions of the North East of Scotland. In 2021, she became the first singer to win the coveted title of Musician of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards. Iona is a fierce advocate for the official recognition of the Scots Language, leading a successful campaign to pressure Spotify into recognising Scots and add it to its list of languages. Iona performs both folk and pop songs in the Scots language, remaining true to her rooting in tradition.

Happy Burns Day!
Happy Burns Day! Here’s a wee recording of A Man’s A Man using an alternative melody. I’ve used an alternate melody which goes to the text ‘Be Guid to Me as Lang’s I’m Here’ which is found in John Ord’s Bothy Songs and Ballads of Aberdeen, Banff & Moray, Angus and the Mearns (1930).
