The new Wimborne Minster Folk Festival is delighted to announce its line-up for the weekend of 7, 8 and 9 June 2013, featuring some of the folk scene’s most exciting talent.
Artists confirmed include the new-look Albion Band and BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards nominees Blair Dunlop, the Carrivick Sisters, and Katriona Gilmore and Jamie Roberts.
Wimborne’s annual folk festival has been a highlight of Dorset summers since 1980. Following its organisers’ retirement last year, members of the local community stepped forward to keep the ‘folkie’ alive with a new festival for 2013.
Wimborne Minster Folk Festival promises three days of ‘folk, family and fun’, with the much-loved mix of dance displays, family activities, workshops and stalls returning to the historic minster town’s streets.
Meanwhile, the concerts at the Allendale Centre will showcase superb live music from artists spanning the current folk spectrum.
