Donald Shaw, Music Director at Dandelion talks about the array of music acts we’ll get to hear at the Dandelion Festival in Glasgow from 17-19 June, and Inverness from 2-4 September. A familiar voice, Executive Producer Jenny Niven, returns in this episode to explain the non-music elements of the Festival, which is jam packed with inspiring talks from scientists, artists and activists, creative workshops and potting sheds where you can immerse yourself in all things growing!  The Dandelion Festival has something to offer for everyone.

Amy Sibley-Allen, Creative Producer (Music) also introduces our Musicians-in-Residence programme; Where local musicians connect not only to the Unexpected Gardens but to the existing culture and community surrounding these locations, creating new music and weaving the past, present and future together!
