The full line-up for Musicport Festival 20th – 22nd October 2017 is now beginning to emerge. Often referred to as the UK’s biggest indoor festival of “world music” the event covers a much broader and more eclectic range of music than that term implies and the organiser Jim McLaughlin believes that the term “local, national, international” describes it much better.
With over 50 acts on 6 stages within the one building (Whitby Pavilion) it is as intimate and friendly an event as one could imagine and has a reputation developed over 18 years for the high quality of its programming, acts and production.
This year’s line-up includes:
Afro Celt Sound System | Benjamin Zephaniah & The Revolutionary Minds | Trio Da Kali (Mali) | Tcha Limberger’s Kalotaszeg Trio (Hungary) | Kefaya | Maia Barou (Japan/France) | Maarja Nuut (Estonia) | Joanne Harris & Storytime Band | Amaraterra | Andy Kershaw | Maya Youssef Trio (Syria) | Rafiki Jazz | Jamie Smith’s Mabon (Wales) | Omar Puente’s Cuban Sextet | Fistful of Spookies | Himmerland (Denmark) | Bollywood Jazz Project | Pete Williams & His Band | Ian Prowse | Rory McLeod & The Familiar Strangers | Kathakali Theatre Company | O’Hooley & Tidow | Hardeep Singh Kohli | Bob’s Blundabus | Grace Petrie | Bar Steward Sons Of Val Doonican | Hattie Hatstar | Leasungspell
