In recent years English folk music has experienced a dramatic revival. Music fans have embraced this and this weekend our own Claire Brewster is reporting at the Met Homegrown Folk Festival to share the wealth.
Homegrown celebrates this vibrant scene by bringing together some of today’s most exciting English artists for three days of amazing music making. Taking place at The Met and the Castle Armoury Drill Hall, the festival will give you the chance to enjoy some of the biggest names in English folk, including Kate Rusby, Seth Lakeman, Jim Moray, Jackie Oates, Bella Hardy, O’Hooley and Tidow, Martha Tilston, The Urban Folk Quartet, and supergroup The Full English.
Taking place alongside the festival is the English Folk Expo, a music industry event that will bring delegates from all over the world to Bury to experience the cream of English folk.
