A unique festival of Nordic and Scottish music, song and dance based in Edinburgh – celebrates its 15th anniversary this month and we’ve got some very special guests.

And celebrating Scotland's Year of Young People:

• V-Dala Spelmanslag – Sweden’s longest-running student folk ensemble & three times student world champions!

All Edinburgh events take place at the Grassmarket Centre - the cafe/bar is open for food before the evening concerts.

Described as “…something out of the ordinary” by The Herald, throughout the years Northern Streams has showcased performers often new to Scottish audiences, offering opportunities to learn about different cultures around the North Sea through a mix of concerts and workshops. It organised on a voluntary basis by the TMSA Edinburgh & Lothians Branch. We acknowledge funding from the Hope Scott Trust and donations from other sources.
