WATCH: Fun in the sun at Rothbury Traditional Music Festival

The hills have come alive with the sound of music, as Rothbury staged its annual festival of traditional music.

The three-day showcase began on Friday evening with a dancing ceilidh.

Yesterday featured competitions for dialect poetry, singing and instruments, and there were performances in the centre of the village and a concert in the church in the evening followed by a non-dancing ceilidh at the Mart.

The final fling ceilidh was staged this morning, while this afternoon sessions are taking place throughout the pubs and hotels in the village for those festival survivors still standing.
