Top Scots singer Robyn Stapleton will headline the Jimmy McBeath Memorial Concert, supported by the Mabel Duncan Band. Thomas McCarthy, Tom Spiers, Artur Watson and fiddler Sarah Beattie complete the Friday bill.
Saturday is packed with workshops and opportunities to sing and play. The evening concert is to be opened by Huntly lass Iona Fyfe and her band of Royal Conservatoire of Scotland students. The Jerimiahs, an award-winning Dublin-based band, will be next on stage, and the evening rounds off with top English folk act Simpson, Cutting and Kerr - each very well known as solo artists, coming together to form a very formidable trio.
There will also be a family ceilidh and Artie Trezise, who founded the Singing Kettle, returns to entertain the youngsters.
Many of the events are in the Town Hall, local cafes and licensed premises.
