Ralph McTell

Ralph McTell appearing at this event

From an early age, Ralph began his career by hitch-hiking around Europe with his guitar, emulating his hero Woody Guthrie. In the mid 60s he worked at a Cornish campsite, being maintenance man by day, entertainer by night, where he graced the stage at the 'Folk Cottage', a tiny barn in Cornwall that hosted an impromptu club, before eventually settling on the 'streets of London'. During this period, Nick Drake's last public performance was supporting Ralph at Epsom college. It was in 1969 that Ralph came to widespread attention though, thanks to an appearance at the Cambridge Folk Festival where all the audience sang along to the now classic anthem 'Streets Of London', thus launching a long term career penning and performing beautiful acoustic and folk politically conscious songs.

Michael McGoldrick

Michael McGoldrick appearing at this event

One of the big names of the current folk scene and member of Celtic favourites Capercaillie. He was also a founding member of Flook, a band much loved by regulars of the David Hall. He is a flute and whistle player who has won two Radio 2 Folk awards. His live performances are truly special, allowing audiences to enjoy the sheer energy as well as subtlety of his music.
