Award-winning Musicians headline at Warwick Folk Festival

The hugely successful and popular Warwick Folk Festival returns with a heavyweight line up of folk stars from around the world from 27 - 30 July at Warwick School and the surrounding town. The colourful festival, now in its 38th year, is headlined by the uniquely entertaining Australian Spooky Men's Chorale, the mighty Oysterband who are celebrating 40 years, music from around the world including award winning Goitse from Ireland and Gaelica from Venezuela.

Plus there will be the first folk-comedy night and a unique Thursday night evening with DJ & war correspondent Andy Kershaw.

The weekend festival will feature the very best in contemporary & traditional folk arts from the UK and beyond.

Visitors can enjoy a full programme of energetic ceilidhs, concerts, singarounds, dance, intimate acoustic performances or full on gigs. Visitors can soak up the atmosphere, sit in the beer tent and watch the world go by or join in the sessions, shop in the craft stalls, learn a new skill in the workshops programme, taste tempting street food from around the world, or simply relax with friends in the wine and cocktail bar.  This year there will be more for families with circus skills, storytelling, theatre and crafts, plus a programme of workshops spanning music, song, arts and even star gazing!

Dick Dixon, Festival Director said, "Established as one of the best folk festivals in the country, Warwick Folk Festival has something for everyone, with 15 venues on site, not to mention the varied stages in Warwick Town. We have some fantastic headline acts this year plus another packed programme of concerts, ceilidhs, workshops, a Craft & Music Fair and even a Wine and Cocktail Bar.
