Big Session back in Buxton

The Big Session Festival will be back in Buxton at the end of the month with a line-up from the cream of English folk music.

Hosts the Oysterband will be joined by the likes of Eliza Carthy, pictured, and Saul Rose, Levellers Acoustic with support from Honey Rider, Blackbeard’s Tea Party, The Hut People, supported by Ray Cooper and Nancy Kerr and the Sweet Visitor Band, with support from Jess Morgan.

Singer/songwriter Jess has taken the do-it-yourself concept to new levels creating handmade seven inch vinyl records of the song Still In Fashion from her album Edison, Gloriette, for release exclusively at Relevant Records in Cambridge for Record Store Day on April 22.

She will be performing at the Big Session on April 30.

At the Buxton event there will be a ceilidh, a Big Session beer festival, and workshops during the event over the May bank holiday from April 28-May 1.

There is also a special Folk Train leaving from Manchester Piccadilly on the Saturday at 11.49am arriving just in time for the afternoon workshop and evening concerts.

On the Monday morning  you will be able to get out into the Peak District countryside with The Big Session May Day Ramble.

Go to for the full line-up and times.
