causeway-ceili  The sun is shining on the festival site as it gears up to receive the first festival visitors this afternoon. There’s an action-packed evening ahead with the concert in marquee 1 opening with some fast-paced British-Americana bended folk from our 2017 Band Competition winners Alden Patterson and Dashwood. The Sam Kelly Trio, Georgia Lewis Band and TRADarrr complete a fantastic opening concert line-up. In marquee 2, the Friday Night Showcase gets underway at 7.15pm with great East Anglian acts including Moxette, Boxwood Chessmen, and Lady Hamilton’s Concert Party delighting the audience. A mini concert with Geoff and Jacqui & open mic stage with David Savage will take place in marquee 3. The evening will be rounded off with a late night ceilidh by Urban Folk Theory for those with the energy left to dance.  Check out our line-up page for more information on these great acts.
