Line Up 2018

The first of 60+ artists are beginning to be confirmed for 2018.

 

The Young ‘uns

The Young’uns have proved themselves a unique proposition – writing and performing a cappella or subtly accompanied songs that tell it how it is alongside traditional songs from their native North-East and further afield – songs of conscience, songs of warmth and wit, songs to provoke, songs to inspire. >more

 

 

Habadekuk

Powerful horns, toe-tapping fiddle and contagious rhythms characterise Habadekuk – one of Denmark’s leading folk bands, guaranteed to get you on the dance floor. With a vibrant mix of folk, salsa and big band jazz, the lively eight-man band catapults old folk melodies into the 21st century.  >more

Blue Rose Code

Blue Rose Code is Edinburgh-born songwriter Ross Wilson. At the edge of contemporary alt-folk, Wilson’s music evokes a meeting of Van Morrison and a young John Martyn, both shipwrecked with a bunch of Motown records.  >more

Dallahan

Dallahan is one of the most thrilling forces in the international folk music scene; heavily rooted in traditional Irish music, but with hugely diverse backgrounds and influences. They call on their mixed Irish, Scottish and Hungarian heritage to create a unique and seamless musical montage. >more

 

 Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar
