Sarah Darling revealed as part of new Cambridge Folk Festival 2019 announcement
26 April 2019 news
Country music star Sarah Darling will be returning to the UK in August for the Cambridge Folk Festival, who has been announced for the festival along with 11 others.
Darling has a very healthy relationship with the UK and has frequently stated that she sees it as her second home, generating a huge fanbase over here in the process.
This was emphasised at the recent C2C 2019 festival, where Darling performed several gigs that were at full capacity before embarking on a UK tour with Liv Austen as support – including a sell out at Bush Hall.
In addition to Sarah Darling, Kerri Watt – another star of C2C and who supported Keith Urban at his O2 Kentish Town Forum show – has been announced, while the likes of Lucy Ward, Katie Doherty & the Navigators and Jack Broadbent will be performing.
Also, Daoiri Farrell will be bringing his All-Star Celtic Session band, which includes the likes of Michael McGoldrick, Donal Lunny, Niamh Dunne, Seán Óg Graham, Donald Shaw and Robbie Walsh.
The new announcements join Lucinda Williams, Nick Mulvey and Fisherman’s Friends on the bill and tickets are available here.
