With the word ‘reeling’ derived from much-loved Scottish dances and tunes, the aptly named festival is guaranteed to be an almighty knees-up, both on and off the stage.

Scottish favourites Skerryvore will close the festival on Sunday 11 June and inimitable party starters Peatbog Fairies will close The Reeling on Saturday, 10 June.

Ellen MacDonald of Sian and Dàimh said: “It’s a joy to be joining such an incredible group of musicians on the line up for this exciting new festival. To see such a strong representation of females on the Scottish music scene is particularly heartening. The Reeling is definitely a festival that both musicians and audiences can get excited about, and we can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Martin Gillespie of Skerryvore said: “We couldn’t be happier to be a part of the first ever The Reeling. That there is such demand for a festival like this in Glasgow shows the strength of the Scottish folk music scene at the moment — it’s a joy to see, and we can’t wait to bring the party to Rouken Glen Park this summer!”
