Clannad, Joan Armatrading, The Proclaimers and more for Cambridge Folk Festival

June Tabor & Oysterband, Loreena McKennitt, Billy Bragg and Nic Jones confirmed

Cambridge Folk Festival have revealed the first artists confirmed for 2012’s eclectic bill.
Performances will include a rare Festival appearance by the original line-up of Irish folk royalty and multi-million album sellers Clannad, leading singer-songwriter Joan Armatrading, who has enjoyed success in pop, folk, blues, reggae and jazz genres; ever-popular Scottish icons The Proclaimers, guaranteed to bring any event to its feet; a rare Festival appearance by June Tabor & Oysterband, following their acclaimed 2011 collaboration ‘Ragged Kingdom’ and recent multiple BBC Radio 2 Folk Award wins.

Canadian singer and composer Loreena McKennitt will be playing an intoxicating blend of Celtic and Middle Eastern sounds; renowned singer-songwriter and activist Billy Bragg will be celebrating Woody Guthrie’s 100th Birthday, which falls in mid July.

The festival also brings the first full public performance in 30 years by English folk legend Nic Jones, whose career was cut short by a car accident in 1982. ‘Penguin Eggs’ by Nic Jones is widely recognised as one of the finest folk albums of all time.
Tickets: Full Festival £120; Thursday £19; Friday £41; Saturday £52; Sunday £52. Camping: (Full Festival tickets only, per 2-3 berth tent) Cherry Hinton £52, Coldhams Common £36 (second site).
