Description

Brand new to the Folk scene Cressing Temple Barns is proud to host the first Cressing Folkfest. A one day celebration of all things folk with a first class line up, sing-a-rounds, morris dancing, real ales and more.

Sunday 15th September - 12noon to 8pm.


£25 per adult in advance. £35 per adult on the door. Under 16's Free of Charge.

Children's activities will run from 12noon to 4pm: garden games, face painting, fairy door trail and outdoor cinema screening of Fantastic Mr Fox at 2pm.

Well behaved dogs on leads are permitted to attend.

Line up includes:

The Wilsons - One of the best loved folk family the brothers sing traditional and traditionally-orientated songs, with deep understanding, joy and good humour.

John Kirkpatrick - has been a member of the Albion Country Band, Magic Lantern, The Richard Thompson Band, Umps and Dumps, Steeleye Span, Brass Monkey, Trans-Europe Diatonique, and Band of Hope, as well as numerous ceilidh bands.

Trials of Cato - a band that arrived fully formed and functioning from Beirut in the winter of 2016, have since torn a shape very much their own into the canvas of the UK folk scene. Hailed as “one of the real discoveries on the folk circuit in recent times”

Fran & Belinda - a mother and daughter duo from Essex, sharing traditional songs and singing together without frills or fuss. Both singers have grown up immersed in the folk scene and have created a spellbinding act. You will be listening to, not only two great singers, but also an oral Essex family history.

Terry Hiscock - Back in the mists of time, singer and songwriter Terry Hiscock along with Chris George, Doug Morter and Roger Trevitt formed the legendary folk/rock band Hunter Muskett playing the circuit alongside Fotheringay, Fairport, Pentangle and Steeleye Span.
