The Saturday line up also includes our old Bootstock friend Ewan Reid, the delightful Issy Thompson, and the acoustic trio Nelson’s Mandola who play a set of original tunes on guitar, mandolin, fiddle and mandola, usually with a complex time signature thrown in to keep the audience on their toes.


Headlining on the Friday night are The Trad Project

Taking things to the next level, bringing you driving, upbeat tunes mixed with original Celtic-Folk-Rock songs, The Trad Project are already making an impression on the festival scene running in 2018.
