Folk Stars Heading to Jinney Ring Festival

Some of the UK’s best folk acts will be heading to Hanbury for the Jinney Ring Craft Centre’s annual festival.

Headlining the festival programme on Saturday, June 24 will be celebrated songwriters Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman – twice winners of the BBC Radio 2 folk award for best duo and acclaimed for their wide-ranging acoustic repertoire.

The event will also feature powerful Celtic-inspired folk provided by Roving Crows, a quartet well-known for their energetic live performances and a strong connection with their audiences.

The eight acts on the Marquee Stage also include quirky singer-songwriter Ruth Theodore, eclectic bluesy trio Mumbo Jumbo and The Haunted Souls, a foot-stomping folk and country foursome.

“This will be our fourth folk festival and once again, we’ve put together a great line up. It’s a fantastic opportunity for people to see these acts on their doorstep and away from the bigger festivals,” said Jinney Ring owner, Amanda Sunter.

The festival also includes an intimate gig on Friday, June 23 by traditional folk singer and multi-instrumentalist Steve Turner which will be followed by an open mic session. The performances the following day run from midday until 11pm.

Tickets are priced from £22 in advance from www.jinneyring.co.uk with camping packages also available.
