Celebrating the 17th With A Magnificent New Bond

doscaThe Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival Inc. are over the moon to celebrate the 17th year with a magnificent new bond with musicians from the UK & Ireland. This year we have the pleasure of presenting Dosca. These young Scottish lads are guaranteed to get you on your feet! Since triumphantly bursting on to the folk scene at Celtic Connections 2015, Dosca- the energetic sixpiece ensemble of bagpipes, flute, fiddle, guitar, bass and drums- are quickly making a name for themselves among some of Scotland's finest folk acts. With influences from Scottish and Irish folk, as well as a hint of jazz, the band's self-titled debut EP was launched early in 2015, leading them on to a number of prominent appearances throughout Scotland and further afield- including the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards, Edinburgh's Usher Hall, Piping Live! in Glasgow, and a return to Celtic Connections in 2016. After an amazing few years, the boys have just released their highly aniticpated debut album 'Meridian' which was launched at Celtic Connections 2018.
