Rachael Dadd


Saturday 4 May – Bristol Folk House

Contemporary folk multi-instrumentalist Rachael Dadd now lives half her life in Japan, witnessing how other people create things, connecting with other cultures and landscapes.

‘Being a travelling musician is a furnace for making music. Watching the changing landscapes from city to wilderness and back to city, becoming connected to other people’s cultures, it all makes it easier to go against the grain of what you grew up with.’

“An album of unparalleled beauty and quality” Louder Than War

Known for her longtime collaborations with Kate Stables, Rozi Plain and This is The Kit. We’re delighted to welcome Rachael back to the Bristol Folk Festival Stage.
