Cambridge Folk Festival Header

Cambridge Folk Festival, one of the premier music events in Europe and one of the longest running and most famous folk festivals in the world, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2014. Held each year since 1965 in the beautiful setting of Cherry Hinton Hall, it attracts around ten thousand people, many of whom return year after year.

The Festival is renowned for its unique atmosphere and an eclectic mix of music and a wide definition of what might be considered folk. The best traditional folk artists from the UK and Ireland rub shoulders with cutting edge contemporary acts, the finest American country, blues and roots artists, acclaimed singer songwriters and world famous names. Bluegrass, gospel, cajun, zydeco, jazz, world, klezmer and ceilidhs are also regular features. The line up has reflected the many changes in the music scene from the 60s to the present and is always a hotbed mix of the old and the new. The list of performers who have appeared reads like a who’s who and the Festival continues to be a launching pad for many well known artists.
