Seth Lakeman will top the bill. Widely regarded as the UK’s foremost folk singer-songwriter, Seth has been credited with breaking down perceptions and barriers often associated with folk music and its acceptance in the mainstream.

Expect a captivating, energetic and undeniably compelling live show from the award-winning musician and his superbly talented band.

Kathryn Tickell & The Side will also play the 2014 festival.

Kathryn is the BBC Folk Awards 2013 Musician of the Year and the composer’s work is deeply rooted in the landscape and people of Northumbria.

She will perform with her folk-classical ensemble The Side, comprising Louisa Tuck on cello, Ruth Wall on harp and Amy Thatcher on accordion.

The festival will also feature a special performance from The Elizabethan Session, a unique project commissioned by Folk by the Oak and the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS).

Eight prominent artists, having lived together at a rural retreat in Herefordshire for a week in March, will create new music inspired by the Elizabethan age.

Recently called “one of the hottest tickets in folk” by BBC Radio 2’s Mark Radcliffe, the sublime combination of Josienne Clarke’s jewel-like voice and Ben Walker’s musical tact and mastery of the guitar will also grace the Folk by the Oak 2014 stage.
