Festival of the Day: Cambridge Folk Festival, 27th July

EmmylouThursday 27th of July sees the weekend kicking of for the Cambridge Folk Festival. It’s always been one of the big draws in the festival circuit, and this year’s line up proves to be no different from previous years. The big gun for 2006 is the wonderful Emmylou Harris, famed for her work with Gram Parsons in the Fallen Angels, and the aching voice on ‘Oh Sister’ on Dylan’s ‘Desire’. One not to miss.

Also playing will be Fairport’s master, Richard Thompson, alongside former Catatonia frontwoman, turned Alt.Country starlet, Cerys Matthews. Intimate surrounding and a mellow crowd will be the main attraction once again.[Mof Gimmers]
