The line-up for an exciting new folk festival coming to Ayr this summer has been announced.

Fresh Ayr Folk Fest will be taking over some of Ayr's most popular venues from August 9 to 11. 

Artists and bands will bring a full weekend of trad and roots music from across Ayrshire, Scotland and beyond. 

The festival was originally planned for Rozelle Park in Ayr last August, but was later rescheduled for this year.

Top stars will descend on the town including Kinnaris Quintet, Session A9, Valtos and The Paul McKenna Band. 

Other artists on the bill include Ryan Young, Edwina Hayes, Jeremy Levif, Amy Papiransky and Stewarton duo Binky Blue.

Tickets will initially go on sale to mailing list subscribers. To get involved, sign up at
