]comp winner  This very talented trio were the winners of our 2017 Band Competition and we were so impressed, we booked them to play at our 2018 festival. Norwich based folk / Americana trio Alden Patterson and Dashwood weave rich vocal harmonies, fiddle, dobro, guitar and mandolin around beautifully written original songs and melodies. Their music takes influence from folk traditions from both sides of the Atlantic with uplifting instrumentals and self-penned songs depicting tales of young travellers, sleepy seas and their affection for home. We’re very pleased to support up-and-coming folk and root artists, and our band competition is a great way of presenting the talent out there. We’ll be announcing details of our 2018 bad competition shortly.
