Harpenden Folk, Roots & World Music Festival
Saturday August 27 2016 to Saturday August 27 2016 | Start Time Approximately 14:00
Harpenden Folk, Roots & World Music Festival Lindisfarne – during the early '70s, they were one of the hottest folk-based rockbands in England and with their continuing story, the Lindisfarne family is still wowing audiences wherever they play!

Julie Felix – there are those who just have to play and sing; to whom there can be no question of quitting; to whom their work is not a job but a calling........ Julie Felix is one such musician!

Dexeter - playing three shows at the O2 in London to wonderful acclaim including receiving the only standing ovation at Bob Harris's Under The Apple Tree stage, what more is to be said!

Polly And The Billets Doux - their energy-filled live performances and genre-defying quartet boast a genius blend of Folk, Pop, Rock N' Roll, Soul, Country, Blues and even Gospel!

Linda Em – her lyrical narrative has a nostalgic feel to it bringing back the early days of Woodstock, with some saying that she has an old soul for such a young woman!

Said The Maiden - three friends who discovered a mutual love of folk music and sing traditional songs from around the UK and America, often in three part acapella harmony!

Delta Ladies – a sound that draws on American & European Roots music, folk, world and bluegrass influences and retains just a shade of blues to create a highly individual and exotic style!
