Newly announced for this year's line-up are duo Alison De Groot and Tatiana Hargreaves on banjo and fiddle, who won Instrumental Group of the Year and Traditional Album of the Year at the 2023 Canadian Folk Music Awards.

Other acts include Brighton-based singer-songwriter Bess Atwell, whose latest album 'Light Sleeper' is produced by The National's Aaron Dessner, and Orkney female fiddle duo FARA, who will be accompanied by Highland pianist Rory Matheson.

Scottish quartet Birdvox, comprised of Sarah Hayes, Jenny Sturgeon, Inge Thomas and Charlotte Printer, will fuse the traditional with the electronic.

Hollie Cook, daughter of Sex Pistol Paul Cook, will perform her self-described 'tropical pop', and French Canadian three-piece Genticorum will combine their flute, guitar, fiddle and accordion skills.

Harpist, guitarist and singer-songwriter Lizzie No sits somewhere between Americana and indie folk, while Locarno will provide a Latin beat and Niall McCabe will blend his traditional Irish singer-songwriter background with a love of rock and soul.

Born in New York City to Haitian immigrants and activists, Leyla McCalla will present her mastery of the cello, tenor banjo and guitar, as well as her skills as a multilingual singer and songwriter.

Korean folk fusion band Sangjaru will perform with their chosen instruments of gong, zither, hourglass drum and guitar as they deliver swing, funk, rock and improvisation.


Other performers include Butler, Blake & Grant, Darlingside, Dean Owens & The Sinners, Jeremy Dutcher, Jon Muq, The Paperboys, Rum Ragged, Sarah Hagen, Smith & Brewer Band, Taylor McCall and Turin Brakes.

In addition to the music, over the festival weekend attendees can enjoy children's activities, workshops on instrument-making and song-writing, a silent disco, storytelling, clog-dancing and tai-chi.

There will also be a selection of food trucks and bars from across Cambridge.
