Allen Valleys Folk Festival 2014




We're delighted to announce that Melrose Quartet will be playing at St Cuthbert's Church, Allendale on Sunday, May 13th to help us launch this year's festival programme. They are an accomplished all-round folk act with both tight a capella harmonies and energy-packed instrumentals. Their line-up includes leading English musicians Nancy Kerr (2015 BBC Folk Singer of the Year), James Fagan, Jess & Richard Arrowsmith with twin fiddles, guitar and bouzouki, melodeon and four strong voices. Read more about them here -

You can buy tickets (£12) from Allendale Post Office & Co-op, The Queens Hall, Hexham or online via 

Advanced Early Bird Weekend Passes (£50) for this year's festival are available now in Allendale and online via the same link. These are great value, saving nearly 30% on the full price. Your last chance to buy these will be at the programme launch on May 13th.
