Knockengorroch has been a quieter place this year, which has given the family a chance to step back and plan, as well as rest the land. We’ve been keeping busy though – in this strange time we found ourselves reflecting on Knockengorroch over the years, the land and what is next for the festival.
Over the 22 years we’ve been running, a lot of people have grown up coming to the event and the community has become as an important thing as the music. We wanted to hear some of this community’s experiences and stories of the event.
With this in mind Katch Holmes, who grew up at Knockengorroch and co-produces the festival, has started a Knockengorroch podcast series. She will bring you a selection of interviews, music and chat with artists and regular characters about the festival. The podcasts are a chance for the family to express what the festival means to them and for all to hear more from some of the hilarious and brilliant people that make up our festival community.
The trailer for the podcast is out here and there will be around six further episodes coming out between now and spring 2021. Whilst these will mainly be about Knockengorroch they will also touch on current, related issues.
We’re really grateful to Creative Scotland for funding this series and we hope it is enjoyed by Knockengorroch die hards and those that are yet to visit!
