With 71 stage performances in 2017, the Bridport Folk Festival made it’s mark on the Southwest Festival calendar. The news that International Singer Songwriter Reg Meuross had agreed to be our patron, was an indicator of the Festivals impending success. With Ninebarrow also on the playlist, the inclusion of Tinderbox, The Polly Morris Band , Kadia, Saskia Griffiths –Moore, Black Scarr, Mitchell and Vincent and a host of other musical talent saw Bridport’s debut into the world of Festivals justifiably credible.
Music acts are currently being considered and many already booked but we are keen to help other performers get a taste and experience of playing at a Festival, so if you area seasoned performer or one who would relish the opportunity of playing please apply via the website
Friday evening pens the festival at The Electric Palace which welcomes Richard Digance!
