There’ll be an excellent, eclectic and truly international line-up at this summer’s 14th Gate To Southwell music festival (June 4th-7th). English roots stars Show Of Hands, the Galician piper-powered Anxo Lorenzo Band, Breton/Scots The Celtic Social Club and 2019 BBC folk award winners The Breath (featuring Rioghnach Connolly) are among the headline acts alongside three exceptional Scottish bands Imar, The Jellyman’s Daughter and Talisk, two Canadian duos in Madison Violet and Pierre Schryer & Adam Dobres, and last summer’s Californian bluegrass stars AJ Lee & Blue Summit.
Now regarded as one of the UK’s best family festivals, set in beautiful rural surroundings near Southwell Racecourse, Nottinghamshire, Gate To Southwell all kicks off on Thursday June 4th with a classic Blues Night starring Dutch-based singer/guitarist Ian Siegal. Over four days of great music will also feature “the renaissance man of English folk”, Chris Wood, the increasingly-influential and charismatic BBC Horizon award-winner Blair Dunlop, master storyteller and emotional songwriter Reg Meuross, plus Texan-born troubadour and guitar virtuoso Rodney Branigan.
If all this wasn’t enough to whet appetites for this action-packed festival – which features music workshops, ceilidhs, dance displays, great children’s entertainment, a craft fair and fine food and drink stalls – GTSF 2020 also brings you the folk-meets-gypsy swing of Beaubowbelles, the French reggae of Simawe from Angiers, great Irish folk and harmonies from Donegal’s The Henry Girls, Italian country blues-meets-ragtime double act Veronica Sbergia & Max De Bernardi and the highly-acclaimed, sweet-voiced multi-national Americana band Track Dogs.
