Winner of the 2016 festival band competition is …

JL2    Georgia Lewis and Friends. This exciting young band is led by folk singer and avid accordionist Georgia Lewis who hails from the depths of Wiltshire. Georgia is joined by Irish fiddler Rowan Piggott and guitarist Felix Miller. We had a very strong batch of entries to the band competition this year and what made this band stand out were the sweet clear vocals of Georgia, the sparky accomplished instrumental accompaniment, and the pure joy of performing a mix of traditional and self-penned numbers. We think this band will go far. Georgia Lewis and Friends will open the first concert of the Ely Folk Festival on 8 July, joining a line-up of Tom Figgins, The Young’Uns and Blackbeard’s Tea Party.
