The East Pointers & Hattie Hatstar Join the Line Up

In the past couple of weeks we’ve announced a couple more names via our social channels. Weโ€™ll be welcoming The East Pointers from Prince Edward Island, Canada. Here they are at Shrewsbury Folk Festival earlier this year.

We’re delighted to say that Hattie Hatstar will be back at the Wickham Festival in 2018, performing both a Big Top concert set & a Late Night set.

    I’m allowed to be biased in this case! My ex-bandmate John Mccusker with his superb trio partners. I go to see them on every tour they do, and I never tire of their musicality.
