We had a strong selection of entries to our Band Competition this year representing all facets of folk & roots music from trad to folk punk. Thank you to all who entered the competition – we enjoyed listening to all your entries. We are delighted to announce that the winner of the 2024 Band Competition is the Thomas Bradley Project. We loved the musicality and raw talent of this young folk-rock band based in Liverpool – definitely an up-and-coming act to follow. The Thomas Bradley Project will open Ely Folk Festival 2024 on the Peregrine stage on Friday 12th July.
