Knockengorroch has been a quieter place this year and has given us a chance to reflect and plan as well as rest the land. Katch Holmes brings you a selection of interviews, music and chat with artists and regular characters about the festival, remembering some of the good times and looking forward to more to come!
In this episode Katch talks to festival founders and Knockengorroch residents Liz and Simon Holmes about why they started Knockengorroch Festival – a tale of social idealism, musical discovery and connection to land and heritage. She also chats to Jonny Hardie of Old Blind Dogs and Nick Jenkins of Outland Trio who share their memories of the very first festival in 1998.
