We have just announced our headline act for festival Saturday! ... www.bridportfolkfestival.com/alaw.html
With 2018 now here, it is with great excitement that we can confirm the programme planning for the second Bridport Folk festival is well under way.
July 27th to 29th being the revised dates will favour many of the stalwart Festival goers as it is set between the more established Festivals along the south coast.
With Sidmouth festival just 4 days after Bridport it is an ideal transition point in the calendar.
Fundraisers and Pre-Festival Warm Up
Thanks to everyone who came along to see Phil Beer at the Town Hall. It was a fantastic gig! Phil Beer from Show Of Hands played two great sets, a wide variety of styles and instruments to show his incredible musical talents to a full house. The local legend, folk duo - Elfentale with their dreamy vocal harmonies were the perfect accompaniment support act to compliment Phil Beer beautifully.
We are delighted to announce that Reg Meuross our Festival Patron has once again offered to take up that mantle and writes;
I'm looking forward to my second year as the proud patron artist of BFF. Chris Deacon and his team have done a fantastic job creating a new folk festival from scratch and it was a great success. People said “it’s the most friendly festival we’ve been to for years” and “it took similar festivals years to reach the point where you started.”
This is the kind of small, friendly, community spirited festival which I love & I enjoyed being back headlining the stage of the stunning Electric palace - it felt like coming home and I look forward to coming home again in 2018.
