Band Competition Winner 2017

 ]comp winner  We’re delighted to announce that the 2017 Band Competition winner is the very talented trio – Alden Patterson and Dashwood. We had an incredibly strong crop of competition entries to select from this year. This Norwich-based folk / Americana trio Alden Patterson and Dashwood wowed us with their rich harmonies, lively sound and wonderful original material takes influence from folk traditions on both sides of the Atlantic. They will perform on our main stage on Friday 7th July which will be a real treat. The competition underlines the fantastic range of talented amateur roots & folk musicians around and we’re delighted to help bring some of that talent to the attention of Ely Folk Festival audiences. The competition was supported by local newspaper – Ely Standard. For a taste of Alden Patterson and Dashwood, check out their website https://aldenpattersonanddashwood.com/
