Festival Artist Announcement

We hope this update finds you keeping safe and well and feeling cautiously positive for the summer ahead!

With this announcement comes the sad news that we will no longer be joined by festival favourites, The Young ‘Uns and Galician power trio, Tanxugueiras, at this year’s Bromyard Folk Festival.

As we are all aware, the turmoil of the pandemic has caused many events to be postponed, leaving an enormous uphill struggle for all in the arts to try to reschedule and recoup revenue where possible. The decision to cancel was not made lightly, but taking into consideration key factors connected to Covid-19 and Brexit, this was the only viable option for all parties involved. We are confident both groups will be entertaining audiences at the festival in the future.

The exciting news is that we have three fantastic groups to add to our list of artists for 2021.

On Friday night we welcome the incredible Kinnaris Quintet. This Scottish award-winning group are sure to take Bromyard by storm, performing uplifting, powerful music created by three fiddles, mandolin and guitar.

On Saturday afternoon, we welcome duo Pedler // Russell, the collaboration of historian and musician Danny Pedler and BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner Greg Russell, creating innovative music that is inspired from people’s real life stories. Due to perform at last year’s festival, we are so excited to welcome them back this year.

Lastly, our Saturday evening headliners will be the legendary English roots band Edward II. Uniquely blending Caribbean rhythms and traditional songs from the British Isles, the group are celebrating the release of brand-new material titled ‘Dancing Songs’.

On behalf of all the directors we thank you for your continued support and understanding during turbulent times. Stay safe and stay positive and we look forward to seeing you very soon!

Lynne, Dick, Ross, James and Dave
