Cambridge Folk Festival news: City Roots: Michael McGoldrick, John McCusker & John Doyle

Latest update from Cambridge Folk Festival

Folk music’s legendary triumvirate of musical magpies Mike McGoldrick, John Doyle and John McCusker are out on the road again in 2018. As winter turns to spring Mike, John & John will wrap up their stint on Transatlantic Sessions for another year and bring you their own blend of top class folk songs, tunes and charming bonhomie.

With their recently released album, ‘The Wishing Tree’ this will be an evening to remember. Described as the masters of flute, fiddle, song and guitar they have worked with the biggest and brightest and bring you a night of beautifully crafted music. Having shared stages and recording studios with everyone from Bob Dylan to Mark Knopfler to Paul Weller, Joan Baez and Linda Thompson Mike, John & John are a rare musical treat you’ll savour for a very long time.

This event is part of City Roots – A city-wide festival celebrating Folk and Roots music

📣 Eddie’s lockdown tune of the day

Today’s Lockdown Track. Tag a friend who was in the 200 strong audience choir, which joined Ladysmith Black Mambazo onstage at the 50th anniversary. Were you onstage? What was it like? Are you going to join our virtual choir? We’re ending sharing these lockdown tracks today, but will continue to gather more playlist tracks ready for our at Home celebrations. Thank you to all of those who liked, commented and shared your memories.

I was in Bella's choir 😊. Didn't get any video/photos as my then-toddler fell asleep on Hubby. 'Love going to the festival singing workshops as it's the only time I get to sing. Ended up singing on stage 1 again last year along with my son...and Hubby did get some photos this time!

Thanks for this series👍😁

I was in that choir! Such a great thing to be part of.

It’s a very difficult time for the music industry, with festivals cancelled up and down the country and many of our peers facing collapse. Together, festivals support more than 85,000 jobs and many of those people are out of work and really suffering. To show your support for live music, please share a photo of the last show you attended and tag it #LetTheMusicPlay.

Live music will be back, but we’re going to need all your love and support to make it happen.

We are delighted that BBC Folk Singer of the Year Bella Hardy will be bringing her considerable experience in leading an online choir to create Cambridge Folk Festival’s Virtual Choir, as part of the Cambridge Folk Festival at Home.

Bella will hold an online choir event on Saturday 11 July from 11am to noon, where she will teach you to sing popular folk song The Parting Glass in three part harmony. As a little extra, if you would like to video yourself singing the song after the event and send it in to us, we'll put as many of those videos as we are able to together to create a video collage to be shared during the Festival weekend.

All participants should book their places using the button below no later than 8 July. You'll be asked how you want your ticket delivered - you can tick either option, as we just need email addresses for participants. We'll then send out the link to Bella's choir event ahead of 11 July, along with all of the resources you might need.

There is a suggested donation of £5 for the workshop, but if you are suffering financially do feel free to join without donating. If you can give more, then that would be much appreciated! Money raised will be used to pay the technical costs of this choir, with any additional profits going to Cambridge Folk Festival at Home artists and charity Help Musicians UK
