The sixth festival of concerts, workshops, ceilidhs and sessions kicks off at the Assembly Rooms in Derby tonight with young sensation Blair Dunlop, and headline sets from Martin Simpson and Jamie Smith’s Mabon.
The festival continues throughout a packed Saturday culminating in what is expected to be a rousing set from the Peatbog Faeries.
Sunday’s early evening extra show is from Seth Lakeman and his Band.
Over the weekend several dance teams are lined up to dance inside the Assembly Rooms complex, as well as outside on the Market Square and there are plenty of workshops to choose from.
