Bristol Folk Festival
Bristol Folk Festival is the beating heart of a thriving Folk Scene in the city & wider South West. The Festival was revived in 2019 by an all-new team. Creative Director Dr Anna Rutherford is responsible for the programme, working collaboratively with the folk & roots scene in the city.
Dr Rutherford founded Bristol Pride & has led multiple cultural organisations, venues, festivals & events across the region. She brings an unstoppable creative energy & passion for folk in all its forms.
Bristol Folk Festival is driven by love for the music & wonderful festival volunteers.
