AFTER the resounding success of last year’s first ever City Roots Festival, the event is set to return once more. Injecting the city with winter cheer and the spirit of Cambridge Folk Festival this February and March, Cambridge’s second city-wide winter folk and roots festival opens for an extended two weeks of exceptional music and events.
The Folk Festival’s legendary talent spotting stage, The Den has put together two gigs each featuring three acts.
At Storey’s Field Centre, Eddington on Thur 1 March:
Ben Smith & Jimmy Brewer - a close harmony singing, guitar playing duo fast gaining a reputation not only as great songwriters but also superb musicians.
Ethan Ash – with his ‘soul-infused folk pop (with a dash of country)’ he’s supported many artists including Ed Sheeran on one of his sell-out UK tours; has written with Grammy award winning songwriter Amy Wadge, and has played many high profile festivals and gigs.
Sarah Munro - a singer-songwriter and guitarist whose music combines elements of folk, jazz and easy-listening with a strong emphasis on lyrics and storytelling.
8.20pm - 10.30pm
