Festival of Folk returns for a second year. Join us for an all day celebration of the best in folk, roots and acoustic music. Our theatre show this year will be headlined by the iconic Show of Hands, alongside an afternoon session headed up by BBC Folk Award nominees Gilmore and Roberts.
We will also have a full programme of free live music out on the terrace and on a stage in the mansion house – which is completely free of charge. This is complimented by a real ale bar, BBQ, stalls, morris dancing displays and some bits and pieces to keep the kids entertained!
Evening Theatre Show:
We are delighted to welcome Show of Hands as our event headliner this year.
Widely regarded as England’s most popular roots act, they have inspired a generation of folk musicians, and join us here at the start of an autumn tour that will see them travel all across the country, playing to packed houses. This is not one to miss – get your tickets while you can!
Support for SoH comes from young singer songwriter Aimèe. Alongside her siblings Freya and Ross, Aimèe has established herself as a proven singer songwriter, who is turning heads at the top level of the UK acoustic scene.
Afternoon Theatre Show:
Our afternoon show is headlined by the rising stars of the UK folk scene – Katriona Gilmore and Jamie Roberts.
Twice-nominated at BBC Folk Awards, contemporary folk/acoustic duo Gilmore & Roberts combine award-winning songwriting with astounding lap-tapping guitar, fiery fiddle and their trademark harmonies, creating a powerful wall of sound.
Support for the show comes from Green Diesel – one of the best young folk rock bands on the circuit, with a style deep rooted in the 70s folk revival sound.
Joining them will be Suffolk native Hannah Scott. Hannah is a singer songwriter who has been carving an ever growing reputation over the years as a writer of exquisite songs and flawless live performances.
