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.
