2018 Artists

The success of our first two festivals has enabled us to assemble our most exciting Kimpton line-up yet. New artists are being added all the time, so check back here for artist updates and news on ticket sales.


This is fiddle-led music that draws heavily from celtic dance forms and traditional song, but for sheer energy and exuberance this is unlike any folk band you have ever heard. Watch the video and you'll see what we mean.

 


HANNAH SANDERS & Ben Savage

A chance meeting at their local club in Cambridge brought Hannah and Ben’s shared musical passions together into an act that is a sublime, intimate blend of American roots and English folk music. 

 


Russell’s powerful vocals and driving guitar style and Algar’s All-Ireland winning fiddle playing have seen this duo become one of the most sought after acts on the British folk scene.

 


Jaywalkers

Since reaching the finals of the BBC Young Folk Awards in 2008, Jaywalkers have cemented their place as one of the most exciting, virtuosic and entertaining young bands working on the British Folk scene.
