Appearing in 2018
Every year, around 80+ acts appear on the festival weekend in our various on-site venues.
In 2017 we had more music and events than ever before so there was something for everyone…
Confirmed so far for 2018 are:
Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar
Two time BBC Folk Award winners Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar met in 2011. Soon after the joining of the pair, the duo were signed to Fellside Records and in July 2012 released their debut album, The Queen’s Lover.
Numerous tours followed as the duo developed and honed their stage craft, becoming one of the most sought after young acts on the English Folk Scene. “The press coverage and folk club reports have been glowing and rightly so” (R2 Magazine).
The husband & wife duo bring an infectious mix of heavenly vocals, lush harmonies and driving rhythmic guitars.
The Lucy Ward Band
Having come up through the folk tradition, Ward’s music has a sense of rooted belonging. She is BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner and is the youngest person ever to be nominated for the prestigious BBC Folk Singer of the Year.
