Organised by Marketing Gloucester on behalf of Gloucester BID, the Folk Trail is set to feature over 50 live performances with more than 40 acts across 16 local venues.

Beginning on Thursday 20th February at Tiger’s Eye with a special open-mic preview event, the highlights for this year’s festival include The Jigantics, Keith Thompson, Sarah Kelly, and drummer, Martin Fitzgibbon.

Justin Hudson, Vice Chairman of Gloucester BID, said: “Now in its third year, the Gloucester Folk Trail has really established itself as a key music festival in the City.

“Gloucester BID is delighted to see how the Folk Trail has developed, growing from a small number of venues to 16 hosting over 60 performances throughout the weekend, supporting local artists and businesses early in the year.”

Aside from the music there will also be family-friendly art, crafts, talks and storytelling events at the National Waterways Museum Gloucester, Llanthony Secunda Priory and the Folk of Gloucester.

Just some of the venues involved in the Folk Trail include Café René, The Fountain Inn and The Dick Whittington.

Nadina from The Dick Whittington said: “We are passionate about folk music. As an up and coming venue for live music in the city, we are not only delighted to host the return of the Gloucester Folk Club but super excited to be part of the Gloucester Folk Trail.

“Feel the folk vibe in our historic pub and experience fantastic artists, keeping traditional music alive.”
