The Travelling People are a Scottish based folk group who love to play in venues from the smallest folk club to the concert stage. They are quite prepared to admit we are getting on in years. However that adds vintage to their presentation and achieves a performance level and rapport with the audience that eludes many modern bands.
They are indeed a folk group that use folk music as a means of entertainment. As a result their performances are liberally enhanced with jokes, anecdotes and the history of their songs. They look to provide a nights entertainment that all the family can enjoy.
