Cornwall Folk Festival takes place in Wadebridge from Thursday Aug 23rd to Monday the 27th. Full details on their website www.cornwallfolkfestival.com. Excerpt below:
We bring Folk’s Best to Cornwall...
And Show Cornwall’s Best to the World!
Look at the 2018 Festival Line-up — Eddi Reader and her band with the amazing Ninebarrow on Saturday; a night of cajun and blue grass with Penzance's Flats and Sharps and Joli Blon; a family affair with Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman, joined by Katriona Gilmore and Kathryn's brother Jamie Roberts; closing out with the amazing voice of Sam Kelly and his Lost Boys, plus our Breton friends Zonj.
We've added two additional events: Gretchen Peters on Friday 24th, and Naomi Bedford plus The Paper Circus on Thurs 23th. Both our patrons Wizz Jones and Geoff Lakeman will be around to play at sessions and impromptu opportunities, and there will be a 'head-to-head' with Geoff interviewing Wizz!
Elsewhere, we continue with back-to-back live regional music on our FAR Stage (previously known as the Fringe; FAR = "Folk, Acoustic and Roots"), and fill the streets with musicians and dancers. Plus more sessions in pubs and cafes, and some great workshops for musicians and songwriters. It will be one, amazing party, the perfect last blast of summer!
