Line Up

Eliza Carthy and the Wayward Band. If there is one musician who embodies the dynamism and vitality of the current English folk revival, it’s Eliza Carthy. Beloved of staunch traditionalists and iconoclasts alike, Eliza’s music effortlessly crosses boundaries of genre and style. Whether performing a centuries-old ballad or a self-written song, her powerful, nuanced voice, fiercely beautiful fiddle playing and mesmerising live performances have influenced a whole generation of young musicians.

The Bella Hardy Band.
Since the UK release of With The Dawn in 2015, Bella has been the only UK artist officially selected for WOMEX in Budapest, she was the opening act for Mary Chapin Carpenter on her full British Tour, and spent seven weeks in China as British Council & PRS For Music Foundation's musician in residence. Bella is currently travelling with her notebooks, collaborating with musical friends, and working on her next album. She spent autumn in Nashville, writing songs, being mentored, and being inspired. Her new album is due for release autumn 2017.

Flats and Sharps have gained recognition for performing their own highly original songs as well as their renditions of Bluegrass classics. These five young talented and fun musicians have charmed and wowing audiences across the UK and beyond including Isle of Wight, Maverick, Ireland’s Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival and West Australia’s, Fairbridge Festival. In 2018 they will represent the UK at the International Bluegrass Music Awards in the USA.

Nancy Kerr and James Fagan are one of the best-known and most experienced folk duos on the British circuit today. Outstanding musicianship, a lifelong grounding in traditional singing and instrumental playing, acclaimed original compositions but most noticeably a visceral chemistry between these two make Kerr and Fagan a perennial favourite at festivals, venues and clubs across the country.

Festival Director, Charles Devlin said “these acts are just an example of the quality and diversity of the music to be heard over the two day festival. We will continue to place emphasis on young rising talent and maintain the festival’s broad musical tapestry with the inclusion of, from Scotland, Blue Rose Code and Tide Lines. A bit of Jazz from The Jake Leg Jug Band and from Canada The Small Glories featuring Cara Luft & JD Edwards.
