Jon Boden announced for Cambridge Folk Festival

Confirmed as Guest Curator for the event

Folk star Jon Boden will take the role of Guest Curator of Cambridge Folk Festival 2017. Jon will programme up to five artists appearing across the festival’s four stages and festival weekend.  Jon will personally introduce each of his selected artists live onstage and will be on-site all weekend presenting additional unique happenings and the odd surprise event in his Guest Curator role.

In addition, Jon Boden & The Remnant Kings will perform their first live show in several years with a one-off preview performance on the festival’s main stage of material from the brand-new Jon Boden album to be released in autumn 2017, giving festival goers the first chance to hear the new material before it is released. The performance will also dip into material from Bellowhead, the A Folk Song A Day project and more.

“Like many folk artists Cambridge Folk Festival has meant a huge amount to me over the years so I am incredibly excited to be asked to be guest curator. Cambridge has always excelled at bringing together the many varied and disparate aspects of the folk scene and beyond so I am looking forward immensely to being a part of that process in 2017. I have played at Cambridge many, many times but it's rare that I have been able to stay for more than the day of my gig so I am particularly thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of the event for the full weekend and to immerse myself in the rich culture of Cambridge Folk Festival. I can't wait to get stuck in!”
