Thanks to Rychard Carrington for a preview of the 2017 festival. The full text is available here Ely Folk Fest preview 2017. The review includes ‘…Ely is definitely one of the best of England’s folk festivals, offering a broad sample of the best contemporary folk talent, in a particularly friendly atmosphere that many can enjoy. For folk devotees, locals and camping families alike, Ely provides an excellent weekend’s entertainment. Sitting near the middle of the site, with some choice food and a pint of real ale, enjoying the view of Ely Cathedral, with an aural background of the sounds of diverse musicians and revellers, is as much an abiding memory for many as is dancing to one of the headline acts in the big marquee at the end of an evening…’ With just over a week to go to the 2017 festival, there’s still time to buy your ticket!
