The fourth annual Day of Lincolnshire Folk Music, Dance and Song takes place in and around the George Hotel, in Leadenham on Sunday 4th August.

This follows last year’s successful event which was attended by an estimated 1,000 people.

Now firmly fixed in the Lincolnshire folk calendar, the event attracts folk followers both from the county and beyond.

This year’s event, starting at 11am and continuing until 10pm, is set to be bigger thanever.

It will showcases the best in top local talent across two concert stages.

A number of great Lincolnshire folk artists will be performing throughout the day, including Bill Whaley and Dave Fletcher, Steppin’ Stones,Winter Wilson, Liam Robinson, John Pape, and many more.

And they will all be joined by a very special guest act, the internationally known fiddle player and singer, Tom McConville.

Up to 60 artists will be performing over 37 hours of music over the Sunday spectacular.

And as well as all the live music, there will be singarounds, tune sessions and workshops with a variety of themes, which are open to everyone to enjoy.

Accommodation is available at The George’s B&B and camper vans are welcome to stay in Village Hall car park, but contact the venue to let them know.

Admission is completely free and the event would not be possible without the generous support of the performers, JS Arts of Grantham, NKDC, The George Hotel and the Heritage Trust of Lincolnshire.
