Musical highlights of the Warwick Folk Festival

Show of Hands features Steve Knightley and Phil Beer, two ‘extraordinary craftsmen with one unique sound’. Dovetailing old songs with new, this is ‘an unmissable celebration of the duo’s enduring impact on roots, acoustic and folk music’. Steve and Phil’s special guest is musician Geoff Lakeman, chieftain of the Lakeman tribe.

Jon Boden is best known as the lead singer of folk juggernaut Bellowhead. After 12 years and a quarter of a million album sales, Jon founded his new band The Remnant Kings. The band features the talents of former Bellowhead band-mates Sam Sweney and Paul Sartin, plus Leveret’s Rob Harbron and Ben Nicholls and Richard Warren.

What else can you expect from the festival?

The weekend festival will feature the ‘very best in contemporary and traditional folk arts from the UK and beyond’. 

Visitors can enjoy a full programme of energetic ceilidhs, concerts, singalongs, dance, intimate acoustic performances and full gigs. 

You will also be able to soak up the atmosphere, sit in the beer tent, join in the sessions, shop in the craft stalls, learn a new skill in the workshops programme, taste street food from around the world, and relax with friends in the wine and cocktail bar.
