Cambridge Folk Festival


The Festival is renowned for its eclectic mix of music and a wide definition of what might be considered folk. The best traditional folk artists from the UK and Ireland rub shoulders with more contemporary acts, the finest American country, blues and roots artists, acclaimed singer songwriters and even the odd pop star. Bluegrass, gospel, Cajun, zydeco, jazz, world, Klezmer and a Ceilidh are also regular features. The line up has reflected the many changes in the music scene from the 60s to the present and is always a hotbed mix of the old and the new. The list of performers who have appeared reads like a who's who and the Festival has been a launching pad for many now well known artists.

Sacrewell Mill - hidden away in a quiet valley setting near the A1 - is the 'jewel in the crown' at Sacrewell Farm and County Centre. Just one of the many treasures from the past - the mill, restored to operating condition in 1993 - forms the heart of the bygones collection, which ranges from Bamford Hay Rake to Coulter Seed-Drill and from a simple chamber pot to hand-operated washing machines. The farm animal collection, restaurant and souvenir shop - not to mention play areas, walks and trails - make Sacrewell a great day out for visitors of all ages.
