Wolverton Folk & Blues Fair

REF NR: 6884

After a sell-out successful launch in 2011, the festival has been gaining momentum with fantastic bands/artists each year along with locally produced food, children's activities, tea tent and not forgetting the Real Ale tent!

Very pleased to announce we have two special guest artistes at Wolverton Folk & Blues this year... UK’s top blues band THE ERROL LINTON BAND and award winning Folk supergroup THE JIGANTICS. Three times winner of Blues Harp Player of the year Errol Linton and his band play eclectic British blues, but with a nod to his Caribbean heritage. Singer, songwriter, harp player and bandleader, Errol carries the legacy of Little Walter, Junior Wells and Sonny Boy Williamson into the twenty first century, moving the genre forward by combining 50’s Chicago blues with gentle Jamaica rhythms. Currently touring his latest album 'Packing My Bags', we are very excited to have Errol Linton and his full band at Wolverton in 2018! The Jigantics, a five piece band from the Gloucestershire area, specialising in Americana/Country but also referencing Folk, Cajun, Zydeco, and Blues as their major influences. Gigging extensively throughout the UK and Europe, this year they are appearing in Germany, Holland, France and Portugal as well as stopping off at Wolverton Folk & Blues Fair this May!
As well as the Main Stage, the popular 'Beer Tent Acoustic Stage' will make a welcome return this year providing a full and varied programme, featuring some of the best Folk & Blues musicians the Isle of Wight has to offer. Other Bands/Artists also confirmed so far include: The MoonShiners, Blackfoot Daisy, Feck, Baggywrinkles Blues Band, Grizzly Rhys Morgan, All Washed Up, Danton, Vote Pedro, The Mojo Mamas, Claydon Connor and Bloodstone Border Morris.

With an IW real ale beer tent, BBQ, Tea Tent, children’s activities, craft stalls, Circus Skills and Morris Dancing, The Wolverton Folk & Blues Fair looks set to be a great opportunity to enjoy top live music and great festival food, set against the backdrop of the beautiful West Wight scenery.
