The Festival on the Moor dazzled the crowds at Botton last weekend as hundreds of folk music fans turned out despite the poor weather.

Among some of the country’s best folk musicians that performed were the Wrigley Sisters, making their only appearance in England this year.

Festival director Jeanette Grainger said: “All in all we are delighted with this year’s superb event, which once again proved the continued quality of our programme.”

With ticket sales up 20 per cent on last year, Mrs Grainger added: “We are overwhelmed by the many compliments we are receiving, not only for the fabulous musicians and the overall organisation, but also for the fantastic venues and the festival’s location in Botton village.”

Other acts during the weekend included the Saturday Orkney Islanders, the Bonfire Radicals (picture above) and John Kilpatrick with his show ‘Victorian Farmer’s Year’, held in the Joan of Arc Hall.
