Up and coming artists played in cafes and bars throughout the day, with a festival stage at the rear of the Town Hall and impromptu performances in the town centre. Music stemmed from the traditional genres of Ulster Scots, Irish Traditional, Folk and much more, built around the festival strapline ‘We’re bringing it all back home’.

The evening concert was hosted by well-known comedian Tim McGarry and Ulster Scots historian and broadcaster David Hume MBE who brought an added element of light hearted cultural comedy and craic.
