Cambridge Folk Festival 2018

A reminder of our fabulous line-up at Cambridge Folk Festival in 2018. Here's to many more sessions this good!
Paul Christophersen

Local musician Paul is just 18 and is already a regular at the open mics of Cambridge Acoustic Nights, another of our member clubs. He shows incredible maturity for his age in songwriting and performing, and his voice reminds us of Jeff Buckley.

Revelation Brothers

Cambridge's very own Grungegrass duo combining banjo, guitar and vocal harmonies, with original songs that take their inspiration from grunge and punk.  

Katie Spencer

"Like a musical weaver she threads her poetic lyrics through the guitar’s strings and produces little tapestries of song” (Ralph McTell). Enough said, and not to be missed.

Melody Causton

Four time winner of Best Female Solo Artist at the Cambridge NMG Awards, who grew up sleeping in guitar cases whilst her parents performed at folk festivals.


Outstanding folk ensemble combining fiddle, cello and guitar, and fast building a reputation for extraordinary arrangements, a unique sound and exhilarating live performances.

Paul McClure

A talented songwriter with big, catchy melodies. His songs are at times very humorous, rebellious and sad - but always refreshingly honest.

Saul Bailey

Teenager Saul is a skilled melodeon player who has already been described as a young Andy Cutting.  Saul was introduced to folk music by his morris dancer dad, and has already appeared in the Folk Festival's Hub Band Project. 

Kevin Hunt

Cambridge-based but originally from Sligo, Kevin is a singer-songwriter with a social conscience. His lyrics are chosen for both dramatic and comic effect, and remind us of great writers like Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, and Leonard Cohen.

Compere: Joseph J Clark
Providing continuity for The Bridge at Cambridge Folk Festival will be poet and a barroom explorer Joseph J Clark. Under the monicker "Drunk With a Pen" Joe has produced a book of poetry and a number of hilarious and moving evenings of spoken word.
