As promised, we’re finally ready to reveal the remaining artists for IVFDF 2018. We’re sorry it’s taken so long, but once you’ve seen who we’ve got, we’re sure you’ll agree it’s been totally worth the wait.
IVFDF contras are fast becoming legendary, and in keeping with that, we have the amazing duo Buddy System coming over from America to play for us on Friday and Saturday night. Friday will be a late night techno contra with Lisa Heywood, with lights and glowsticks and some amazing electronics. On Saturday, Bob Morgan will be taking the stage with Noah and Julie for the evening contra.
For the balfolk fans coming along, we’ve got fabulous new trio Emily and the Simons playing for us on Saturday night. Expect smooth, slinky tunes, gorgeous harmonies, and brilliant compositions from these three for the perfect end to the evening.
Finally, we’ve got the wonderful Scottish Measure coming along to play for us on Saturday night for the Scottish Country Dance. We’re really looking forward to their music and know that the Scottish fans among you will love them too!
That’s just about our full lineup now, with these artists joining Steamchicken, the Melrose Quintet, Playford in the Pub, Sheffield CeilidhSoc, and all our callers. We’re working really hard on sorting out an exciting programme of workshops too – if you’re interested in running a workshop, don’t forget you can sign up to do that at this link. You’ve got until the 18th of December to do that, and we’ll make sure that we confirm with you before the early bird ticket deadline.
We’ll be back in a couple of weeks with details on ticket prices and how to get them. Until then, we hope you’re as excited as we are!
