Folk on the Pier

About

Renowned as ‘the best gig on the North Sea’, the event attracts a plethora of well-known and up-and-coming folk, folk-rock, and acoustic artists from across the UK. The line-up for 2022 is once again a ‘who’s who’ of award winners.

Among the headliners are BAFTA Nominated TV Entertainer of the Year and The British Academy Gold Award of Composers recipient Richard Digance, and Wizz Jones who picked up a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. The ever-evolving folk-rock band TRADarrr will play music from their latest album ‘Strange News’ and as always festival Patron Ashley Hutchings MBE who has been the recipient of numerous awards will present one of his latest special projects ‘Dylancentric’ for the festival.

But it is not all about award winners – other acts include festival favourites the Gerry Colvin Band, Feast of Fiddles, the Spikedrivers this time with collaborators Fran McGillivray and Mike Burke in a performance of their concept show ‘Saints and Sinners’, Kevin Dempsey, Alan Reid, and the Urban Folk Quartet; plus newcomers to the theatre - Linda Watkins, Martin Harley, and the Redhills. Also making their first appearance at the festival are local acts Alden, Patterson & Dashwood, the Shackleton Trio, and Klezmerized! To close the festival on Sunday evening is 'the band without whom there would probably not be a Folk on The Pier - Fairport Convention.
