Shrewsbury Folk Festival 2019, West Midlands Showground, Shrewsbury - 23rd August 2019

The Folk Festival is a lovely atmosphere, always great artists on the line up, and plenty to do to keep everyone happy. Fabulous bars with great choice of locally sourced real ales. Friendly to all, including children, the disabled, and dogs. Very clean site, and everything within easy access. Seated main marquees (bring a cushion for comfort). Very close to Shrewsbury town centre itself should you wish to go off-site / see the town festival parade on a Saturday

Wonderful event as usual though unfortunately couldn't attend Monday. Only quibble: 2 tribute/imitation acts in the Bellstone. Best to leave out the borrowers! Otherwise, all good.

Truly amazing festival. Unique atmosphere from the moment you walk in the gate. Incredible, talented and uplifting performances with great range of food and ales. Site layout, facilities, scheduling, diversity of performers and fab volunteers all make this festival the most relaxed and welcoming event I have ever been to. Roll on 2020!

Once again we were delighted with our weekend visit to Shrewsbury Folk Festival 2019. It is extremely well organised and everyone is so friendly and helpful. It goes without saying the artists are always first class with something to suit everyone’s tastes. It is excellent value for money if you consider the many events which are on offer during the four days and we would recommend a visit without any hesitation. Looking forward to 2020!

Shrewsbury Folk Festival has released the second wave of artists appearing at this summer’s festival.

Scottish sensations Skerryvore, the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain and The Unthanks lead the latest line up announcement with a special concert from Oysterband's John Jones and special guests performing his Rising Road show.

Police Dog Hogan makes its festival debut with the Sam Sweeney Band, Track Dogs, the new duo of Miranda Sykes & Hannah Martin, the Julie July Band presents the Sandy Denny Experience, Fire & Dust - the story of Woody Guthrie in song by Reg Meuross, the Julie July Trio and solo shows from Miranda Sykes, Reg Meuross and Dan Walsh also added to the bill.

They will be joining the likes of international stars including folk legend Judy Collins, piper Carlos Núñez, Candian rockers Blackie and the Rodeo Kings and the Grammy nominated all-women string band Della Mae at the festival from August 26 to 29. Also already announced are Show of Hands, Black Umfolosi, Moonlight Benjamin, Stephen Fearing and The Sentimentals, The Roaring Trowmen and solo shows from Colin Linden and Tom Wilson.

Director Sandra Surtees said: “As ever we are pairing the best of British folk with a fantastic roster of international acts to deliver an eclectic line up that covers everything from traditional music to folk rock, bluegrass, Americana and world music. And we’re still to reveal some big names so it’s shaping up to be a really great festival.

“Mix all this with an extensive dance programme including indoor and outdoor ceilidhs, dedicated festivals for children and young people, workshops and singarounds and there’s never a dull moment.

The festival is retaining an open air stage following its introduction last year and there’ll be two covered music stages and its outdoor Village Stage. The festival’s dance tent will return giving a covered venue for ceilidhs, dance shows, workshops and displays.

There’s also on site camping and glamping, a food village and a festival shop, craft fair and real ale, wine and cocktail bars.
