2019 Annual Chester Folk Festival – UK

Chester banner
Askew sistersThe 2019 Annual Chester Folk Festival will be held in the village of Kelsall, about 8 miles from Chester (UK) from May 24th to 27th. The event will include concerts, workshops, children’s events, dance displays, ceilidhs, sessions and a craft fair.

Performers include the Askew Sisters (Hazel and Emily – picture right) who have become known as two of the foremost performers and interpreters of English folk music. Their live performances brim with the depth and connection not only of two sisters, but also of two musicians who have been immersed in folk music all their lives. Alongside this, both women are also skilled multi-instrumentalists and players of dance music, using fiddles, melodeons, concertina and cello.

Concertina player, Steve Turner is known as a pioneer of highly sophisticated English concertina song accompaniments, stretching the boundaries of traditional forms, with one of the best voices in the business.

On the final festival day (May 27th), Andy Cutting will hold a Melodeon Workshop.
