Beardy Folk Festival
18 September 2020 - 20 September 2020
Bucking the trend of cancelled events, boutique Shopshire folk festival Beardy Folk Festival is going ahead with a Covid-safe policy in place, and Fromthewhitehouse artists are prominent in the billing.
Friday sees dynamic Devon duo Harbottle & Jonas take to the stage with songs from their most recent album ‘The Sea is My Brother’.
Newcomers to the Fromthewhitehouse stable Julu Irvine & Heg Brignall are appearing on Saturday with their evocative songs that take inspiration from strong female characters in history, mythology and personal experience.
Sunday’s lineup perfectly encapsulates the diverse talent on Fromthewhitehouse’s books, as internationally-renowned singer/songwriter Charlie Dore, and critically-acclaimed instrumentalists The Ciderhouse Rebellion help close what is bound to be a fantastic weekend of music.
The Charlie Dore Trio features long-term collaborator Julian Litman and double bass player Gareth Huw Davies, and takes her exquisitely crafted songs and expands their scope with as many as ten instruments played on stage.
The Ciderhouse Rebellion’s brand of improvised instrumental folk draws on the deep well of musicianship and experience that embodies both Master accordionist Murray Grainger and ‘Paganini of the folk world’ fiddle player Adam Summerhayes.
Beardy Folk festival is held at Hopton Court, Shropshire from the 17th to the 20th September 2020.
