Our thoughts go out to John Prine who is critically ill with coronavirus and on a ventilator, and his wife, Fiona, who is also ill. John has performed at Cambridge many times over the years. Here is a photo of his most recent set from 2018. ...
What a great set it was as well.
We saw him at the festival in 2018 and he was brilliant. I hope he and his wife can get through this.
He’s such a fighter - we pray he wins this battle too....
Here's a photo from CFF 1973 .. quote ' looks like everybody drinks this stuff round here ' He was magnificent along with his best buddy, Steve Goodman .. that was a vintage year. Hope John gets through this .. he's a determined fella!
My thoughts go out to John and his family. I hope he is going to be OK. He is a legend.
Here's to a speedy recovery
What a shame 🙁
Loved this set. Hoping John pulls through this xxx
He was at my first. 1987 I think.
Saw John many times including his last visit to Cambridge and hope to see him again !
My favourite singer-songwriter. First saw him in ‘73.
I am sad to hear the news of their illness hope they pull through 😥
First saw John Prine at the Cambridge Festival I think in 1992. Nanci Griffith joined him to sing "Speed of the Sound of Loneliness" and my amateur photographer husband took a wonderful black & white photo, which we cherish.
A great, great man.
The reason I went to Cambridge in 2018. Absolutely fabulous set. So sad to hear this😢
Very sad to hear this, get well soon John.
His gig at your festival was awesome. His music maker nu day. Sending healing love to John and family❤
Sending get well thoughts to zjohn and his wife xx
A friend just shared this m.dailykos.com/stories/2020/3/30/1932763/-John-Prine-Still-in-Hospital-But-is-Now-STABLE-He-s-Out...
Wish him well ❤️
A real songwriters songwriter. Thoroughly enjoyed and was mesmerized by his CFF sets both in 2012 and 2018. His most recent album could well be his best imho. “The Tree of Forgiveness”. Astonishing talent. Makes you cry, makes you laugh, makes you think. Truly unique.
Sad news indeed, seen him several times at Cambridge, just love his laid back style and sense of humour. Get well please.
Best wishes to both xx
Terrible news. Please get well, John

Folk Festival HQ ...
We are sorry to share the news that the 2020 Cambridge Folk Festival has been cancelled.
The safety of festival-goers, as well as the artists, staff and crew who make the Cambridge Folk Festival possible, is our top priority. The situation around coronavirus has been changing rapidly in the past days and weeks and, unfortunately, under the circumstances it is becoming too difficult to plan, prepare and deliver an event on the scale of the Folk Festival whilst keeping everyone safe.
We know this will be a blow not just for our festival-goers, many of whom have been supporting Cambridge loyally for many years, but for the incredible artists who make Cambridge so special, as well as for our staff and crew. Artists and many others working in the live music sector are under tremendous pressure, especially as many have already seen gigs and tours cancelled or postponed, and this decision has not been taken lightly.
As a local authority, Cambridge City Council, which runs the festival, has frontline responsibilities in times of crisis and is working hard to support local residents. Our immediate focus has to be on supporting our community through this difficult time, particularly those who are frail and vulnerable.
If you have already booked your tickets, rest assured your tickets are protected. You will be offered the choice of a refund or the chance to hold onto your tickets for the 2021 edition. Please be patient and wait to hear from us about your options for a refund – our Box Office is extremely busy and will contact you in due course.
For more info, including guidance from the NHS, please visit our website >> bit.ly/3dyo9sy
Thanks for supporting the Cambridge Folk Festival and see you in 2021.

Such a shame but inevitable. See you next year.
Bollocks 🙁 gotta be safe though. Expecting Rebellion the weekend after to go next.
The dogs understand completely 💚💚🎵🎵🎵🎵
Right decision- but gutted xx Please keep as much of the lineup as possible xx
Just echoing what others have said. Please roll over the line up.
Such a shame, one of the best line-ups was coming......hope for the best in 2021
It’s a real blow, so sorry. Think 2021 is going to be a real blast! Xxx
I’d like to join the chorus of voices saying please put this year’s artists into cold storage and thaw them all out in time for a great festival in 2021.
Fully understand. Right choice I am afraid. Deferral to next year sensible option for all.
I'm particularly disappointed because I think this was potentially the best line up you've had for years. It would be great if you could keep the same acts for next year.
Completely understandable but sad that the highlight of my calendar year is not going ahead. But I’m sure the same familiar faces will be back in 2021 and my very best wishes go out to you all.
Sending all our thoughts to the CFF team from Team SFF.
Inevitably really, so sad amazing line up, hope they are all on board next year , lets party like
Happy to hold on to our tickets. Could you hold on to that lineup?😂 We send our love to the greatest music Festival in the world😘
Not a surprise, and the most responsible decision to make! Stay safe everyone!
Sad but expected. Just make sure Eddie is back next year!
Can't press Like, because I don't like at all, but perfectly understandable.
First time since 1976 that I won't be there.
In Barcan and Cambridge Folk Festival we trust xx
Sad but right decision, stay safe everyone xx look forward to 2021 🎶
Sad, but needs to be done, come back stronger next year, and to all stay safe
The right decision but still gutted. Roll on 2021.
And I was given a ticket to go this year with my son, daughter in law and friends! First time for us for many years. Richard Green see you next year? X
Very, very sad. The right decision but I'm gutted. The guy who would be my husband first asked me out there. My kids have been since they were babies... So, many special memories... Stay safe, here's until the next time...
Completely understood but very sad....this would have been my 36th unbroken year. Be safe and well everyone.
