Jack’s Rake announced as Friday night headliner

We are pleased to confirm that Worrall Festival regulars Jack’s Rake will be back again this year headlining our Friday Folk concert on 1st July!

Jack’s Rake was formed after the four original members went climbing in the Lake District and stumbled upon a folk festival in the evening. They are now one of the leading folk bands in the Sheffield area with hints of the Pogues, Levellers, Chieftains & Bellowhead.

Sets consist of their own unique arrangements of traditional songs & tunes plus original compositions with one or two cover versions thrown in for good measure.

Friday night advance tickets are only £5.00 and can be purchased online here: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/362552
