You may have seen our line-up build over the last few months, so you’ll know how much we have pushed the boat out this year!  There’s something for everyone. From top Nashville star Gretchen Peters, award winning British folk stars such as The Young‘uns and Kris Drever, a very strong Celtic programme headed by Cara Dillon, a blues legends night on Thursday (June 7) featuring Britain’s number one R&B band Nine Below Zero and, on Friday night veteran Geordies Lindisfarne to get the big top singing.

Recently added to the bill, slide guitar master, Martin Harley, joins the two fantastic guitarists already booked – Johnny Dickinson and John Smith.

If you like something to bop to we’ve just booked Dinamo, a Mallorcan Latin ska band, and the party-prog-folk of Seas of Mirth, who join others already in the line-up such as The Destroyers and Habadekuk.

Also recently confirmed, Vivian Leva and Riley Calcagno, who bring us old-time and country music with its heart in Appalachia, award winning multi-instrumentalist Luke Daniels, modern Irish favourites Ranagri, and the virtuoso guitar and fiddle players from Sheelanagig, Kit Hawes and Aaron Catlow.

We now have over 50 artists confirmed in our strongest line-up ever, which means discounted tier 2 tickets will run out soon.
