In Celebration of his new single Strange Days the brilliant Beans on toast will be doing an exclusive Livestream on Facebook page this Sunday (12th APRIL) at 8pm. 

“I’ll be playing some old songs, some new songs, telling some stories and discussing this strange new world...”

We’re heartbroken to hear of the passing of John Prine. John was a very special member of the Cambridge Folk Festival family, performing many times over the years and bringing joy to everyone who heard him play. Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones at this sad time.

Here’s a video of John playing Cambridge from 2002. His music will live on in our hearts >>>https://bit.ly/2VcZjGb

Enjoyed John's music since I saw him on the Whistle Test in 1973 and went out and bought Diamonds in the Rough and then Sweet Revenge. Through CFF I got to see him live at various times through the years. Many thanks for that.

When I die let my ashes float down the Green River Let my soul roll on up to the Rochester dam I'll be halfway to Heaven with Paradise waitin' Just five miles away from wherever I am. ~ Paradise ~

1992 - John duetting with Nanci Griffith - Speed of the Sound of Loneliness - a precious memory.

First time I walked into the festival arena was in 1987. The first person I heard was John Prine.

One of many great artists brought to us by the Cambridge Folk Festival. A massive loss.

Sad news...a fine musician and writer.

Such sad news 😔

Very sad news. Totally unique talent. Irreplaceable😭

Love his music and so sad at this news

Very sad 😢

Sad news

Just listened to his debut album again. Flabbergasted at that astonishing run of tracks. Just classic song after classic song!!!

Julie Felix and now John Prine... These are sad times for Folk. RIP.

Hello T-Shirt Competition Entrants/Friends,

We have had a couple of enquiries from entrants regarding this year’s t-shirt competition and what will happen due to this year’s cancellation. So we thought it would be best to send an update to everyone outlining what we have in store…

We are still looking for a winner and runner up from amongst the applications we have received – which has been one of the best year’s yet! The plan is to roll over the winner’s prize and the runner’s up prize for the competition to the 2021 Festival, we will are also still looking at the possibility of being able to produce a physical t-shirt(s) for purchase online this year and we hope that we will be able to share some exciting new about this later down the line. We will also look to run the competition again for the 2021 Festival which will give anyone a chance who is unsuccessful this year to get their creative hats on again and try again!

Take Care.

When or how can we put this year’s festival tickets towards 2021 festival please? 🙂. Hope everyone is well in CFFHQ

How about a virtual CFF2020??? So many musicians along with folk supporters and promoters are putting on events like this! Surely the greatest folk festival in the world could organize SOMETHING at the end of July beginning of August where at least 20-30 “folk” artists can perform for 30 minutes each over 2 or 3 days. I know I would happily contribute to this. Please think about it Eddie. We NEED it👍😁
