We’ve had some great entries so far for both our Band Competition and Youth Challenge Competition. Previous winners of the Band Competition such as Georgia Lewis; Alden, Paterson & Dashwood; and Rusty Shackle have gone on to make their mark on the roots & folk circuit and we’re now on the look out for interesting and up-and-coming acts for our 2018 Band Competition. The Youth Challenge is new for Ely Folk Festival this year as we’re keen to encourage young people setting out on their roots and folk music journey. Closing date for both competitions is 28th April and prizes for winning entries include performance slots at the festival.
