The Fishguard Folk Festival makes a welcome return after a two-year absence imposed by Covid.
The famous Fishguard Folk Festival returns at the end of this month for its successful twentieth year.
From Friday, May 27 through Sunday, May 29, a variety of venues across the city will offer a revitalizing special collection of music, song and dance, with most events free.
The famous Fishguard Pirates and Smugglers March will also make a welcome return.
The official opening takes place in the town square on the morning of Saturday 28 May. This year’s lineup includes a whole host of Welsh folk artists Supergroup Alaw; the brilliant Broad Oak of Pembrokeshire; Andrew McKay and Carole Etherton of the Gower; Cherrystones whistle players; harpists Chloe Matharu Harriet Earis and singer Mair Thomas and dramas Heb Enw Dancers.
There will be pipers, sea shanties, fiddles, bagpipes, jigs, reels and ballads, a mix of traditional and contemporary folk. This is your chance to experience the heart of early Pembrokeshire music at a Celtic crossroads.
The program for what is said to be one of the best small town traditional folk music festivals in the UK is available in a free color brochure and on Facebook which details times and locations.
