Our Youth Challenge is an opportunity for young East Anglian folk musicians to perform on a Festival stage. We are delighted to welcome two outstanding acts and are confident that you’ll be hearing lots more of them in the future……. you heard them at Ely first! 

PEAR  (Erin Tasker & Toby Young – Snettisham and Leiston)  make and play acoustic folk pop, combining close-knit harmonies with sweet sounding acoustic guitar. Having both been involved in music from an early age, Erin and Toby take inspiration from artists like James Bay, Kawala and Oh Wonder.
