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!

Music Festival in Spiegeltent, Crescent Gardens, Harrogate, North Yorkshire
Spiegeltent, Harrogate
Saturday September 10 2016 to Saturday September 17 2016 | Start Time Approximately 19:00
Spiegeltent, Harrogate Harrogate International Festival’s most flamboyant event returns with the magical Spiegeltent in Crescent Gardens, Harrogate.

The bohemian mirrored walls, wooden floors, stained glass, red velvet booths, and lamped lighting will feature live music, burlesque, and a Silent Disco throughout the week from Saturday September 10.

Kicking off is the Parisian vintage dance ensemble, Benoit Viellefon and His Orchestra. Considered one of the finest entertainers of his generation, Benoit will direct internationally acclaimed musicians reminiscent of Duke Ellington.

Music highlights also feature Guest Curator, Jay Phelps, the top Canadian trumpeter and Ronnie Scott’s regular, leads his fiery swinging quartet. As well as exclusive tracks from Phelps new album, he’ll premiere a piece commissioned by the Festival, Amphitrite’s Bounty.

There’ll be a celebration of Miles Davis’ life and work from Projection of Miles, featuring Jay Phelps with a rhythm section and the American tenor saxophonist, Brandon Allen.

Marc Dunleavy, Music Manager at Harrogate International Festivals, said: “The programme really is remarkable this year, featuring some of the most sought after musicians, cabaret acts and DJs. We’ll be introducing new music in this alternative, accessible venue as part of our remit to reach new audiences with a number of free lunchtime sessions, thanks to the generous support of the Arts Council. If you haven’t yet experienced the Spiegeltent, I urge you to come along for some incredible, uplifting entertainment.”

Folk singer Eska, championed by Jamie Cullum, also features following her nomination for the Mercury Prize in 2015. The folk singer has been compared to Joni Mitchell, garnered rave reviews and has collaborated with Grace Jones.

Free lunchtime sessions include the acoustic Sandrani Duo, world-music from Manjula, and 19 year-old saxophonist, pianist and composer, Alexander Bone, winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year- Jazz award, who has worked with Nile Rodgers and Rudimental.

Coronation Street actor, DJ and presenter, Craig Charles will DJ a dance event with his Funk ‘n’ Soul Show, and 2014’s sell out House of Burlesque returns with showgirl superstar Miss Tempest Rose.

Concluding the week will be My Darling Clementine, a homage to classic country duets. Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgeish have performed over 300 shows and three highly acclaimed albums on both sides of the Atlantic.

Spiegeltents are from an ancient theatrical tradition, which took entertainers and shows on the road across Europe. September will also see a Children’s Festival hosted in the Spiegeltent – the programme will be announced shortly.
