2014 marks the 40th Anniversary of the Girvan Folk Festival. The Festival started in 1974, a time when folk music in Scotland was increasingly exploring its own roots. The core of the photographic exhibition catches many people at an interesting stage of their musical journeys. They had been around long enough to have established their identity but with long roads ahead of them. For many people this period is seen as a golden age. It was a time of creativity in all areas of music but was a particularly key period for folk music in Scotland.
