Cambridge Folk Festival
Explore the history of British folk with this special collection compiled in partnership with the Cambridge Folk Festival 2021.
Drawing on its unrivalled 56 year musical heritage and combining it with the brand new, quirky, and the unsung, a unique alchemy is created each year at the legendary Cambridge Folk Festival.
One of the many reasons why the Cambridge Folk Festival is the pre-eminent event of its kind in Europe is that for decades the organisers have fearlessly programmed popular veterans alongside up-and-comers and the sort of world-music or blues acts that you'd not normally find in any folk club.
