The directors of Bromyard Folk Festival invited local folk trio Granny’s Attic to become festival patrons, having appeared on its stage for many years.

The band were both surprised and gracious in accepting the invitation: “We’ve been attending Bromyard Folk Festival for years (Cohen’s been to every festival since 2007 and was a worthy winner of the coveted Future of Young Folk Award in 2014) and it feels like our “home” festival. It’s a lovely weekend and is always full of great music and great people, so we were absolutely thrilled when we were asked to be patrons. Bromyard is such an exciting festival to be involved with and has such a great team; it’s great to work with Lynne and Ross and the rest of the organisers. They’re supportive of such a wide range of acts and champion up-and-coming artists. We’re looking forward to this year’s festival and all those to come!”

Lynne Barker, the festival director was overjoyed that they accepted: “We have had the pleasure of witnessing Lewis, Cohen and George flourish into the extremely popular act that they are today. They have deep roots in the festival, share our enthusiasm for traditional folk and are perfect partners for us.” Bromyard Folk Festival has long established itself as a local landmark. Since 1968 the renowned event has been bringing the town to life with wonderful live music, song and dance for a whole weekend in the start of September. The music festival also draws in a great deal of families and fans from around the country every year with an interest in traditional folk and seeing friends that they’ve built up at the festival over the years. This year, headliners include contemporary Celtic ground-breaking band Flook, a bold and technically brilliant ensemble, The Daoirí Farrell Trio from Dublin, winner of 2017 BBC Folk Awards Best Newcomer, and Les Poules à Colin, a contagious transatlantic group sharing the sparkling culture of Quebec in Bromyard.
