After much pondering, we are pleased to confirm Cottingham Folk Festival WILL be back this summer.

Returning for our fifth outing, in a slightly revised (hopefully better) format, we are today announcing the first eight acts set to grace our stages across the August Bank Holiday weekend…

Headlining the Friday night (August 23rd) at The Civic Hall are The Magic Numbers, known for their unique harmonies, melodic hooks, songwriting craftsmanship and timeless sound.

Saturday night (August 24th) is dedicated to the emerging UK country music scene, headlined by The Wandering Hearts and featuring the likes of Cattle & Cane and The Adelaides in support.

Meanwhile, over at The Back Room we’re hosting a trio of intimate all seated shows, including Julie Felix on the Saturday and John Otway & Wild Willy Barrett on the Sunday (August 25th).

Loads more still to be announced, including full fringe programme (new for 2019)…
