City Roots: Opening concert with Sona Jobarteh & Muntu Valdo
February 22 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
The City Roots 2018 opening concert!
The spirit of the world-famous Cambridge Folk Festival will inject the city with winter cheer in February and March, when Cambridge’s second city-wide winter folk and roots festival opens for two weeks of exceptional music and events.
Sona Jobarteh stepped in as a last minute replacement at the 2017 closing concert and stole the hearts of the audience. The stunning Gambian sun-drenched chords of Kora virtuoso Sona Jobarteh will return to open the City Roots Festival at the Corn Exchange on Thur 22 Feb 2018
Support: Muntu Valdo
Muntu Valdo plays what has been dubbed “Sawa blues”, so named because he hails from the Sawa community of Cameroon’s coastal region.
