Winners of our 2019 Band Competition, Tell Take Tusk will open Ely Folk Festival 2019 in Marquee 1 on Friday evening.  Tell Tale Tusk are a contemporary folk ensemble reimagining folktales old and giving light to folktales new. Spellbinding three-part vocal harmonies weave around melodious instrumentals to create a take on folk that is bold and original. As well as inventive interpreters and skillful arrangers of music from the British Isles, the ensemble are prolific writers, adding their distinctive and astute voices to modern day folksong and continuing the tradition of using folksong to protest and question the status quo.
