The traditional festival makes its way back to Cambridge in 2019, with a veritable almanac of folk musicians in tow.
The Cambridge Folk Festival has been wowing audiences since 1965, and it continues to do so in 2019, as it welcomes the cream of the folk genre's talents to its stages.
Taking place from 1 – 4 August, folk music’s most highly-regarded annual gathering regularly pulls interesting artists, both established and emerging, and this year promises to be no different.
2019 sees the festival returning to the historic backdrop of Cherry Hinton Hall, which was built in South Cambridge way back in 1839, so it is not far off being 200 years old. What with folk music being steeped in history itself, it makes sense that a festival celebrating all that the sound has to offer, should take place in the iconic city.
This year sees the festival curated by Nick Mulvey, who will be cherry-picking a selection of his favourite artists. They will be spread across line-ups in much the same way that Rhiannon Giddens did so successfully at 2018’s festival. The festival takes place in August, between the 1st and 4th of the month.
With previous line-ups including stellar artists such as Paul Simon, who played the first ever festival, through to Steeleye Span, 10,000 Maniacs, and The Levellers, we can pretty much expect another amazing three days from Cambridge Folk Festival.
