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
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.
Charlie Dore with Julian Littman
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.
The Boxcar Boys (Canada)
Katie Spencer & Foss Paterson
Spencer will be joined by Foss Paterson providing atmospheric jazz-infused keys. Their work together has been championed by Iain Anderson (BBC Radio Scotland) and has been described as “late night [John] Martyn & [Danny] Thompson territory”. Paterson’s back catalogue consists of a whole host of folks including John Martyn, Fish and Jacqui McShee.
“Spencer’s dense, brooding and heartfelt songs have an attractive dreamlike quality that suggest a bright future” – RNR MAGAZINE
The Cody Sisters (USA)
Harbottle & Jonas
Alterego Ceilidh Band
