Elephants For Shrewsbury.

Apr 1, 2023

Press releases bearing exciting tidings are arriving thick and fast from those mercurial souls at the Shrewsbury Folk Festival. The latest is below, it features some very tempting line up additions and gets a huge round of appluase and thumbs up from the SE News Department as amongst the names is that of Caledonian  roots fusioneers The Elephant Sessions whose thoughtful music is worth travelling miles to hear!  Hoorah for Shrewsbury say we. Have yourself a cool time in Shropshire.

“The clocks have gone forward, Spring has sprung and we’re heading into festival season. It can only mean one thing… it’s time for another festival line up announcement!

We can reveal that the brilliant The Dhol Foundation will be heading back to SFF but this time with their DJ Set – just the thing for a Friday night party, there’ll be the first ever visit from Scottish indie folk band Elephant Sessions and California based roots band Dustbowl Revival will be making their Shrewsbury debut too!

Joining them are Gigspanner Big Band, Show of Hands frontman and festival co-patron Steve Knightley with a solo set, Baskery, global folk collective MishraGood HabitsTrue FoxesThe HoneybeesRapsquillion and Howay The Lasses.

There’s plenty more to come but it’s shaping up to another super Shrewsbury!”
