2013 saw the start of a twinning between Warwick Folk Festival and Cork Folk Festival in Ireland. Both town based festivals started over 35 years ago, and the twinning celebrates both events and sharing artists, ideas and experiences.
We’ve since welcomed parties of delegates to the festival each year, who’ve entertained the audiences and ourselves with some great music and tales, and we’ve taken artists over to Cork to take part in their town Festival.
You can once again catch the Cork group performing at Sessions, Concerts and a Set Dancing event during their visit to Warwick.
This year Cork Folk Festival will be bringing musicians and singers for their annual visit to Warwick Folk Festival, recreating the famous Cork Singers Club.
