Sell-out Spree gig links culture ambitions of Paisley and Galway

WeBanjo3 are playing in the festival’s famous Spiegeltent as Paisley’s bid for UK City of Culture 2021 gathers pace.

Galway has just been named European Capital of Culture 2020, and WeBanjo3 were one of their musical ambassadors.

They now bring that passion for culture to Paisley along with two of the best bands in the Scottish and Irish folk music scene - Michael McGoldrick and friends and Ross Ainslie and Jarlath Henderson Trio.

The nine-day national arts, music and comedy festival kicks off on Friday 14 October with festival favourites Admiral Fallow and Paisley’s own Carol Laula.

The Spree is already known across Scotland as a unique multi-artform festival, and while the trad trio show is already sold-out, tickets can still be snapped up on The Spree website or at Box Office, inside InCube shop, Gilmour Street.
