Organiser Nigel Stonier said: “We are very pleased with this year’s bill – and seemingly plenty of people in the town are looking forward to it!

“We enter our 3rd year with our mission remaining the same – to bring stellar roots music in all forms to Nantwich.

“In an age where too many great festivals (and venues) are disappearing, we want to stay courageous and book acts we believe deserve to be seen – from the famous to the all-new.

“We treasure our loyal local audience, and we absolutely love welcoming new visitors to the town.

“It’s a source of pride and satisfaction to us that we have enticed audience members to travel from far corners of Europe and even the USA just to attend our festival.

“We hope you like the bill.”
