Folk On The Pier 2020 – all you need to know

Pavilion Theatre Cromer, North Norfolk

Folk On The Pier

Nineteen highly talented acts plus an extended Fringe Festival will ensure Cromer’s Folk on the Pier festival will be offering twenty of the best for 2020.

Taking place on 8, 9 and 10 May in the prestigious Pavilion Theatre the festival will feature a bumper bundle of established artists and rising stars from the folk-rock and acoustic music scenes. And with the Fringe Festival taking over many venues in the town there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

This year’s line-up is peppered with award winners – among the headliners are BAFTA Nominated TV Entertainer Of The Year and The British Academy Gold Award of Composers recipient Richard Digance, and Wizz Jones who recently picked up a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

The ever evolving Demon Barbers XL who also won a BBC Radio Award for Best Live Act will present their new show Rise Up and festival Patron Ashley Hutchings MBE who has been the recipient of numerous awards  will present ‘Dylancentric’ – his tribute to Bob Dylan.

And closing the festival on the Sunday evening is ‘the band without whom’ there would not be a Folk on The Pier – Fairport Convention. Little did they know when they invented British folk-rock that it would become the inspiration for what has become a very popular music festival.
