Cambridge Folk Festival news: Hò-rò

Latest update from Cambridge Folk Festival

Awful news. If any of our Scottish friends can help with information do contact the police.

Hò-rò

We are absolutely heartbroken. Last night, somebody broke into our van and set it on fire. We have worked very hard to get to where we are at the moment. We saved up as much as we could to buy the van and good equipment so that we could sound as good as possible. Our musical instruments that were in the van were priceless and now thanks to a desperate criminal act. We urge anyone who might have seen anything odd happening on Copland road in Glasgow at early hours of Wednesday morning to call police Scotland 101 with any information. 😫 At this point we don’t know what’s been taken or what survived!

Our gigs will still continue with a massive help from Heron Valley & Trail West lending us their gear.

A big thank you to everyone who joined in for the Folk Festival at Home ❤️
If you haven’t seen it yet, all the videos are still up – so it’s not too late to start watching.

An even bigger thank you to everyone who has donated to support our artists. So far we have raised £5,279 from our fans which will go towards artists and workshop leaders. These are tough times for performers, with this summer's gigs and festivals cancelled. Many have lost a full year of touring, so we're doing what we can to help cushion the blow.

Every single person who gives £10 or more will be entered to win two full weekend tickets to the Festival next year, complete with guest bar access. And we've extended the deadline for donations to next Monday 9 August. After you've seen some of these incredible performances, we think you'll want to support them too 👇👇

We know you love music as much as we do. That's why we decided to partner with the charity Help Musicians UK, which helps musicians in need. After covering certain costs for the Festival, which have been kept to a minimum, funds will be shared with 75% divided between this year's artists and 25% going to Help Musicians UK.

Thank you for continuing to support the Cambridge Folk Festival!

Beautiful.

A true Legend , an artist who sings with his whole heart and soul ..💖 🎶🎵

Sweet memory of the concert at Shaftesbury Theater in November 2016 with me and Martina in the 2nd row 😉

Thanks cambridge folk festival at home 2020

Allah gives us all a gift your gift is your music and voice. May Allah grant you good health and happiness always as your music brings so much joy.❤

It sure is a wild world.

Loving Yousef Cat Stevens , still sounding as good, if not better than when my 17 year old self was a little bit in love with him! Please tell me he's going to be there in 2021 ! 💗

❤❤❤❤

Can't believe how good he still sounds. I hope I can get the opportunity to see him live someday.

What a performance!👏Hope he comes to Trondheim in Norway next summer as planned🙏😊

Still got a fantastic voice. It was lovely hearing him on Radio 2 last night with Mark Radcliff

Wonderful and Alun is playing top

Love hearing Yusuf, Cat Stevens singing again! Such a great song!

Thank you Cambridge Folk Festival for a lovely Thurs - Sun show. It was lovely to hear the musicians and both Meryl and I can’t wait to see you next year #fingerscrossed Stay safe everyone

A true Legend , an artist who sings with his whole heart and soul ..💖 🎶🎵 I listen to his songs everyday, they are food for my soul.

One of my favourites ever 🥰

I’ve listened to this a thousand times in my lifetime...

Thank you for making my day 💕. Right when I am ready to give up struggling through my life.

Still can see plain as day when i was 16 in concert in London Ont Canada. You where wearing a black t-shirt, blue jeans and high top red converse. That is so long ago but you are my favorite to this day.

He sounds amazing!

I was finally able to get my donation through.. USA.

This is from concert

The love I had for his music and lyrics at 13 still resonates as strongly today, many decades later. His songs are part of an eternal fabric and mean so much.

I listen to his songs everyday, they are food for my soul.

Still just as sweet and pure as he has always been. One of my favorite people since I met and heard him perform in concert way back in the 70's <3

Looking forward to next year so much.

Kate’s songs are subtly bewitching😊
