Roots & Shoots - Blas Festival concert that celebrates 25 years of Fèis Rois and highlights the influence Fèis Rois and the wider Fèisean movement have
had on generations of young musicians from the Highlands.

With 25 performers on stage, you are promised a very special evening of traditional music at its best.

2011 sees us celebrate the 25th anniversary of Fèis Rois! In 1986, 59 young people took part in Fèis Rois. In 2011, Fèis Rois will reach out to over 3,000 young people across Ross-Shire, as well as working with pupils and teachers in schools across Scotland.

"This challenging musical explosion has resulted in creative and resilient responses. The sheer number of young people coming through the Fèis throughout the Highlands has resulted in entire communities holding workshops and ceilidhs. It is a very exciting time for traditional music."
Tom Bryan, The Living Tradition
