    Manchester's Improving Daily closing party

    19:30

    With rock-steady rhythms, blazing horns, fabulous harmonies and fiery melodeon melodies, Edward II were a regular feature of world and roots festivals across the world throughout the 90s. 

    Born out of the Rock Against Racism movement it was originally conceived by a loose punk collective to celebrate the similarities between the England’s diverse communities, particularly English folk and Caribbean roots and reggae. Signed to Cooking Vinyl the band released a number of critically acclaimed albums before splitting up in 1999. 

    In 2016 the band returned and released the critically acclaimed ‘Manchester’s Improving Daily’ CD (4* Guardian, 4* Mojo Magazine), and have been performing at festivals across the UK including Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival, Shrewsbury Folk Festival, Towersey and Boomtown.

    Costa del Folk

    TBC

    Costa del Folk Festival - Portugal at the  Hotel Grande Real Santa Eulalia 5* Resort And Spa in Albufeira.

    A new one for us and one we are very excited about!  We are told there will be music, singing, dancing and laughter aplenty from morning until the wee small hours at venues situated throughout the complex. What makes this the ultimate feel-good festival is that it literally has everything you’d want from a traditional folk festival but without any of the drawbacks!

    There’s an outdoor stage for afternoon concerts AND an indoor venue for evening concerts, a comfortable Hotel bar and break out rooms for tutorials / sing arounds, late night folk club, plenty space for impromptu sessions as well as ceilidhs every day you really don’t want to miss out on Costa del Folk PORTUGAL!!

    For more information please visit www.costadelfolk.co.uk or join the Costa del Folk facebook group

    Many thanks
