Cambridge Folk Festival 2019
It's our second year hosting a session in the Club Tent at Cambridge Folk Festival and we're delighted to introduce these exceptional performers!
Josh is an acoustic indie/alt folk singer-songwriter from Cambridge, who also fronts the band The Mardlers. He is playing all over the country everywhere from pubs to festivals, currently recording songs and generating a buzz.
When Rivers Meet
Grace & Aaron Bond of When Rivers Meet are a Blues + Roots Rock duo from Essex. Their soulful vocals lock into harmony with a natural chemistry: Aaron’s bold, driven guitar is grounded by his solid kick drum, and Grace’s unique slide mandolin and fiddle combine to create a wall of sound. With a combination of well-crafted self-penned songs and reworked traditionals, performances are fearless.
Claudia plays a colourful mixture of musical styles - mellow yet uplifting acoustic sweetness with hints of folk, jazz, soul and a good sense of fun!!
Terry Hiscock formed Hunter Muskett with Chris George and Doug Morter in 1969 whilst still at college. The band was lucky in having access to the clubs and colleges of London, including The Marquee and The Troubadour where they were finally spotted. After two albums they eventually wound up the band in 1974, but reformed in 2010 to record a third album and return to performing.
Lizzy is a young folk musician, playing a mixture of traditional and contemporary material. Lizzy has won the Herts, Watford and Milkmaid Folk Song Competitions and the Royston Folk Club Young Artist Competition: bringing significance to stories old and new. This mixed with her "exceptional voice" and "accomplished guitar player" make her "a rising star on the folk scene, not to be missed".
This Hertfordshire band give powerhouse performances of their own material, along with well-known songs (done their way). DodoBones are an acoustic indie band, with an ironic-pop edge.
