FALMOUTH Festivals are proud to announce the return of the Falmouth Folk and Cider Festival that will take place on Falmouth's Event Square on Saturday, March 22 and Sunday, March 23.
After the huge success of last year's event – which was the first of its kind in the town – the organisers have pulled out all the stops to deliver an eclectic line-up of some of the finest traditional and acoustic music out there with the likes of BBC Radio 2 A-listed artist The Lloyd Yates Band heading to Kernow especially to play alongside homegrown talent such as The Bell Jars, Julian Gaskell & His Ragged Trousered Philanthropists, Jonah's Lift as well as a vast array of traditional folk acts including The Brim, Flotsam, Bagas Crowd and many others. Jersey-based Lloyd, pictured, has been compared to the like of Cat Stevens, Ray LaMontagne, Passenger and Bon Iver and his beautifully crafted songs have seen him grow an impressive fanbase and popularity that is spreading since signing a publishing deal with EMI Music Publishing/Sony ATV.
2013 saw Lloyd support Jamie Cullum and a Radio 1 live session which Fearne Cotton described as delicious.
Visitors will also get the opportunity to taste an array of specialist ciders from around the country including Ashridge Devon Cider, Cornish Orchards Farmhouse, Westons Rosies Pig, Wyldewood and Old Rosie, Healeys, Black Rat and many others.
Admission is free, doors noon to 10.30pm on the Saturday and noon to 6pm on Sunday. The Lloyd Yates Band play at 8.30 on Saturday.
