Jon has become the standout folk performer of his generation, but one whose repertoire extends far beyond the boundaries of the genre.
He brought the curtain down on the very first Lyme Folk Weekend six years ago in spectacular style alongside fellow Bellowhead member John Spiers, and returns this summer as a critically acclaimed solo artist.
Support comes from the wonderful Askew Sisters, who delighted Marine Theatre audiences at the festival fundraiser in March, Lyme Folk Revisited.
Emily and Hazel rework and reinterpret songs and balladry, creating breathtaking arrangements, which allow words that are hundreds of years old to resonate profoundly with contemporary audiences. Alongside this, both women are also skilled multi-instrumentalists and expert players of dance music, using fiddles, melodeons, concertina and cello in their innate drive to bring old dance music to life.
