The Cambridge Folk Festival 2011 posted on 1 August 2011
The Cambridge Folk Festival has long been thought of as one of the most loved outdoor live music events in Europe. Cambridge residents and visitors have been attending the four-day event in their thousands for many years – dating back to its incarnation in 1960s - The Cambridge Folk Festival can boast to be one of the longest running festivals in Europe.
The Festival is renowned for its eclectic mix of music and a wide definition of what might be considered folk. The best traditional folk artists from the UK and Ireland rub shoulders with more contemporary acts, the finest American country, blues and roots artists, acclaimed singer songwriters and even the odd pop star. Bluegrass, gospel, cajun, zydeco, jazz, world, klezmer and a ceilidh are also regular features. The line up has reflected the many changes in the music scene from the 60s to the present and is always a hotbed mix of the old and the new. The list of performers who have appeared reads like a who’s who and the Festival has been a launching pad for many now well-known artists.
The Cambridge Folk Festival runs from 28-31st July and is held at its longstanding home at Cherry Hinton Hall.
