Big folk line-up

HARTINGTON Folk Festival returns in May with an expanded line-up of famous names in folk music.

To be held over the weekend of May 28 and 29, the festival will offer a range of great folk music in Hartington Village Hall. Established Canadian act Finest Kind top the bill on May 28, with BBC Radio 2 favourite and Derbyshire native Bella Hardy rounding off proceedings on May 29.

There are both established performers and highly-rated young talents performing on both days, such as Gavin Davenport who has guested with major acts such as Bellowhead, plus no less than three acts who have featured in the prestigious BBC Young Folk awards.
