Another great line-up featuring the best in British and international folk music is on the cards for the 2009 Ely Folk Festival (10 – 12 July, Ely Outdoor Centre).
Acts confirmed to date include the Peatbog Faeries who were voted ‘Live Band of the Year 2008’ at the Scottish Traditional Music Awards, the legendary Eric Bogle and John Munroe, Canadian band Tanglefoot, the original African Celtic cross-over band Baka Beyond and Chris While and Julie Matthews. Other fantastic acts include Allan Taylor, Adrian Nation and Flossie Malavialle.
The festival’s tradition of showcasing young artistic talent continues with acts such as Anna Sinfield, Toy Hearts and Hot Lips & Chilli Fingers. More information on the 2009 festival is available on elyfolk.co.uk.
The Festival Box Office will open in February 2009. The festival’s reputation for seeing great live acts in an intimate and family friendly setting means tickets will go quickly once the box office opens.
