Folk fest

Following the success of the inaugural February Folk Festival at The Lud in 2016, built nicely upon the wonderful monthly folk sessions we host, and in keeping with our commitment to celebrating many music genres as one of the most diverse micro venues on the Island, we're pleased to announce the line up for this year's event.

The musicians are once again donating their time for the love of the music, but we will also be collecting for the charity of Capt Paul's choice, in keeping with his Bloodstone commitment to local charity.

Capt Paul is the man who makes this happen for us, as if he didn't have enough to do between Bloodstone Border Morris and 'The Crew', plus of course the founder and host of our monthly folk meet ups.

The Folk festival takes place over the weekend of Saturday 25 and Sunday 26th February, kicking off from 2pm both days. The music runs late into the night and features:


Fetch It Dreads
Guith Singers
Friends in Harmony
Millicent's Favourite
The Crew


The Hoolies
Cptn Paul and the Shipmates
Double Hitch
Derek Farrell
Bob's Basement Band
Second Time Around
