At The Ferry we are enthusiastic supporters of live music and through the season offer the bar as a venue for young traditional musicians to showcase their skills.

The Orkney Folk Festival at the end of May, and Blues Festival in September are obvious highlights, but throughout the year we provide a venue for young (and not so young) bands to strut their stuff and support traditional music sessions which set the pub off to its best.

Visiting players are welcomed and there will always be a guitar, fiddle or mandolin (and even a bhodran on request!) for those away from home but prepared to pick up an instrument and join in – or start off – a session.
