Folk on the Dock returns for August Bank Holiday

Folk on the Dock returns to the Liverpool waterfront this Bank Holiday weekend.

The free, three-day music festival will feature more than 200 performers from across the UK and beyond, playing on stages and boats around the Albert Dock area.

Janice Long will also return to introduce the talent on the Dock Stage, including multi-award winning Moulettes, from Brighton, who recently performed at Glastonbury, former Coral guitarist Lee Southall, Henry Priestman, and Anglo/Americana trio Wildwood Kin, and rising stars from LIPA that the radio presenter has chosen to showcase as part of Janice Long Presents….

Liverpool Sea Shanty Festival takes place across four stages – the Baltic Fleet, Maritime Museum, France-Hayhurst tug and Shanty Stage itself – and welcomes shanty singers from Belgium, Norway and the Netherlands – the all-female Gouda Viswjvenkoor, along with performers from closer to home.

Meanwhile the Stan Ambrose Stage, named after the late Radio Merseyside presenter, will feature the best of acoustic and emerging talent, and there will also be performances on the Merseyrail Sound Stage.

Festival organiser Marina Blore said: “From international celebrated names and seasoned festival acts, to up-and-coming, local musicians, we’ve got the very best of folk, roots and acoustic performing live here at Albert Dock over the August Bank Holiday.

“It really is an incredible line-up.”

Folk on the Dock is at the Albert Dock from August 26-28. More details of who is performing where and when on the website HERE
