Line up and set times for Saturday
We’re very excited to announce that the James Taplin Band will be headlining the festival this year.
Having made a name for himself in South Yorkshire’s bars and clubs as one of the regions most beloved singer-songwriters, James Taplin, ‘The Voice’ of bluesy-roots and acoustic rock & soul, is paving the way for a promising future ahead. James will be joined by his band which includes the equally talented Michael Holmes on Harmonica. These guys are not to be missed!
Opening this years festival are Dogwood Rose – a Sheffield based Americana trio featuring Judy Clifford on vocals, Mike Richards on guitar / vocals and Kiri Smith on fiddle. Judy and Michael have been playing and singing together for several years on the Sheffield folk circuit and beyond – Judy’s voice is frequently compared to Joan Baez: powerful, soulful singing. Kiri joined them, adding fiddle accompaniment and a 3rd voice for the strong harmonies, a varied set and a lot of fun!
Dogwood Rose last played Worrall Festival in 2015 and we’re looking forward to welcoming them back!
It’s official! This year’s posters and flyers have gone to print. Keep your eyes peeled for them popping up around Sheffield.
And watch this space as we’ll be revealing our full festival line up soon!
