    It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our friend and longtime Folkfest Treasurer Harry Boyce. Harry’s organisational skills and attention to detail, his humour and his hard work, were vitally important in the building of our festival. We will miss him sorely. He was one of the very best. All our love and best wishes to Caroline and the family.

    Inc.A to headline the Princess Stage on Folkfest Saturday, 30th August 2014

    February 19th, 2014

    Inc.A headline Folkfest Saturday Princess Stage 2014
    Inc.A is a unique seven-piece band consisting of a feisty brass section, scorching strings and a vibrant rhythm section with occasional guest appearances from MCs and vocalists.

    They mash up elements of jazz, Eastern European folk, Arabic and film music and set them to drum and bass, breakbeat and hip-hop rhythms. They play everything live without any laptops, samples or loops.

    Their shows are a complete sensory experience, combining costumes and dance moves which involve and transfix the crowd: getting the audience moving is a big part of the Inc.A manifesto.
