TENBURY will be hosting its very own folk festival later this year.

The Regal in Teme Street will be holding the week-long event in April, with performers from across Britain set to entertain locals with songs and tunes drawn from a variety of musical traditions.

The festival kicks off on April 16, with Irish singer and bouzouki player Daoirí Farrell set to bring his authentic, narratively rich songs to the stage.

On April 18, George Boomsma will be playing, supported by Dan Williams. Mr Boomsma is often praised for pure voice, tumbling guitar and entrancing poetic lyricism, with Mr Williams being well-known for his unique folk-soul sound.

Americana and old-time band Grey Wolf will be coming to town on April 19 with their blend of American and British folk music, before the festival wraps up on April 20 with a double bill from the Four of Us and Smith and Brewer who have both recently toured alongside Fairport Convention.

Tickets are already available for all of the performances and can be purchased via the Regal’s website.
