Cornwall Folk Festival 2018 dates announced plus Gretchen Peters is playing Cornwall

Folk Guitar with 12 strings

Dates for the Cornwall Folk Festival 2018 have been announced as 23rd to 27th August 2018.

The Thursday to August bank holiday Monday event will once again take over the streets and venues in and around Wadebridge.

The Cornwall Folk Festival 2018 team are rightly thrilled to have booked songwriter, Gretchen Peters, from Nashville for what they’re calling a ‘Bonus Gig’ on Friday 24th August from 7.30. Gretchen Peters’ 2016 album Blackbirds went straight to number 1 in the UK Country Charts. This gig is outside the normal weekend ticket so please check here for details.
