Festival Information

Cambridge Folk Festival 2015 Overview

Cambridge Folk Festival is one of the premier music events in Europe and one of the longest running and most famous folk festivals in the world. It has become hugely popular attracting ten thousand people, many of whom return year after year.

The Festival is renowned for its eclectic mix of music and a wide definition of what might be considered folk. The best traditional folk artists from the UK and Ireland rub shoulders with more contemporary acts, the finest American country, blues and roots artists, acclaimed singer songwriters and even the odd pop star. Bluegrass, gospel, cajun, zydeco, jazz, world, klezmer and a ceilidh are also regular features. The line up has reflected the many changes in the music scene from the 60s to the present and is always a hotbed mix of the old and the new. The list of performers who have appeared reads like a who’s who and the Festival has been a launching pad for many now well known artists.

Artists booked to appear include: Joan Baez, Passenger, Frank Turner, Joan Armatrading, John Butler Trio, Nick Mulvey, Wilko Johnson, The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, The Unthanks, Show of Hands, Katzenjammer, Altan Treacherous Orchestra, Danú, Shooglenifty, Martin Simpson, Andy Cutting & Nancy Kerr, Peggy Seeger, Bella Hardy, Amsterdam Klezmer Band, The Lone Bellow, Chris Smither, Angaleena Presley, Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker, Jim Moray’s Silent Ceilidh, Keston Cobblers Club, The Stray Birds,Rura, Goitse, De Temps Antan, & Lynched.
