Our Musical Philosophy
Our goal is to showcase the best folk, celtic, bluegrass, blues, gospel, and singer-songwriters, that we can book from anywhere in the world.
It's a balancing act. We try to blend all these music traditions to offer something for every musical taste and to create interesting main stage line-ups and sessions where diverse styles can be shared.
We strive to achieve the following:
- Examples of folk music from all around the world
- An eclectic mix of familiar favourites, big names and first-time artists

What if I want to recommend a performer?
Email your suggestion to me at email@example.com
I can't promise to book your favourite artist but this input helps me program the festival. You never know - your discovery might become mine also!
