Preview: Cambridge Folk Festival 2013 – Final Acts Announced

Lisa Ward


With a ream of final names added to the bill this week, Cambridge round off another superb line up for 2013. Latest additions include emerging talent from the likes of Rae Morris, who previously wowed us as Dot To Dot in 2012, and The Staves whose debut album dropped late last year. Elsewhere MTTM favourites Thea Gilmore and Emily Barker and The Red Clay Halo also make their way onto the line up.

Expect new material from Thea, as her latest album Regardless is due out at the end of the month. Also keep your eyes peeled for a potential cameo from Frank Turner, who is firm friends with Emily Barker.

Elsewhere the usual mix of ceilidhs, sessions and slots in The Den for emerging talent return, as does the coveted real ale.
