Subscribe to RSS RSSFriday, 25th June, 2010

After the last two sell out events, Moseley Folk Festival is celebrating its fifth birthday with another three days of music and fun in Moseley Park, Birmingham on the 3rd, 4th and 5th September 2010.

Friday?s bill will be topped by The Divine Comedy, psychedelic folk hero Donovan will headline on Saturday, and The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain will finish off the weekend with their comedic strumming, plucking and singing.

Other confirmed acts include Mercury Prize nominated Turin Brakes and The Unthanks (formerly Rachel Unthank and The Winterset), folk and blues legend Spider John Koerner, special guests from America The Low Anthem, nu-folk poster boy Johnny Flynn, Pentangle?s founding member John Renbourn, guitarist Martin Simpson and Guillemots front man Fyfe Dangerfield.

The festival continues to champion Birmingham?s music scene as new local acts will share the second stage with up and coming talent from across the UK and beyond. Broom Bezzums will be returning from Germany and America?s Arborea will be performing as well as fiddle player Dan Cassidy, whose strings featured on his sister Eva?s legendary ?Songbird? track.

There will also be entertainment for all the family, with storytelling pirates, traditional fairground rides and a variety of music and dance workshops.

Tickets are now on sale.
