Applications to perform at the 2017 festival open on 1st January and close on 30th April. Late applications cannot be accepted. We receive a large number of applications - many more than we are able to book - and we are not able to provide all those booked with a chance to perform on a main stage, although there will be opportunities to perform at an open-mic concert or other venue in the town and of course everyone is welcome to join in the sessions. Applicants will be notified sometime in June whether we have been able to fit them into the program.
Please read the performer info HERE to complete an online application.
One of the best parts of a folk festival is involvement. By volunteering, you will make new friends and obtain great satisfaction from ensuring everyone has an enjoyable and memorable time at the Festival. A good festival requires lots of volunteers and your skills and time will be highly valued. If you would like to join the Festival Team please
