Festivals

Fantastic music, beautiful rural location, stunning food and protected from the elements!
Lots of you will have enjoyed Blues at The Fold, brought to you for eight years by Jigsaw Festivals – we all had a ball from 2009 till 2016 by combining great music with the undercover/outdoor venue of The Fold at Bransford.

Now the team is back together to bring you a more eclectic musical day bringing a wider range of musical styles to the festival. If you have enjoyed Blues at The Fold over the years you are going to love ‘World in a Day’, for its music, its food and drink, its ambience and its relaxed vibe.

We have over 200 free parking spaces, plus we have camping (including caravans and campervans) for the Saturday night so you can make best use of the delicious food and drink on offer throughout the day.

KINGSLEY SALMON – 9.30PM

Former frontman of reggae band King Solomon, Kingsley embarks on his solo adventure armed to the teeth with exciting new material and backed by a powerhouse of a new band. Blending his passion for reggae with inspiration from blues, jazz and world music, Kingsley pushes the musical envelope while his voice is described as an ‘instantly addictive roots-reggae drawl’

TROYKA – 7.45PM

Balkan and Klezmer music with hints from the Middle East – a stormy mixture of traditional and original songs and rhythms from the Balkans. With soaring clarinet, rich violin, and rhythm-hopping guitar all held together by infectious double bass and percussion. Bristol’s very own kings of Klezmer.

STONE MOUNTAIN SINNERS – 6.00PM

Country Rock specialists Stone Mountain Sinners are described as “One minute summoning the ghost of Janis Joplin, the next channelling Paul Rodgers and the dusty Americana of Jason Isbell.”

FOLLY BROTHERS – 4.15PM

Going down a storm on the festival circuit, and having amassed BBC Introducing success, the trio delves into a gritty and rootsy mélange full of sweeping licks, pumping bass lines and melodious harmonies. They successfully blend a modern country twang with rollicking bluegrass which has stirred up the UK roots circuit.

Outside The Fold

MUMBO JUMBO – 2.45PM

Close-harmony, eclectic, semi-acoustic piano-led wonder, Mumbo-Jumbo produce an ‘English Eclectic Acoustic’ sound that is all their own at festivals, theatres and village halls across the country. Twice British Blues Awards nominees, Oliver, Phil & Chris play nine instruments and combine to produce strong harmonies, interweaving the songs with stories and a self-deprecating humour.

AWANTIKA – 2.00PM

Awantika sings Classical Indian Ragas, Semi-Classical and Bundeli folk songs of which she has collected some 2000 from around her home town of Khajuraho. She is an exceptional Kathak dancer and has regularly sung on all India radio and won the University Youth Festival of Indian Classical Vocal competition.
