Summary

BBC Radio 3 takes up residence at Hull Truck Theatre for a three-day festival celebrating the city’s rich folk heritage and our international links.

Reflecting on the city’s rich folk and roots heritage, the festival features a series of live concerts from one of the most recognisable faces in modern British folk music, Eliza Carthy alongside international artists Warsaw Village Band and Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars.

Formed in a refugee camp during the country’s civil strife, Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars have inspired audiences across the world with songs of joy, faith and hope. To start the concert, there will be a special guest performance from Scunthorpe-born folk legend Martin Simpson.

The band is a potent example of the redeeming power of music and the ability of the human spirit to persevere through unimaginable hardship and emerge with optimism intact. From their humble beginnings in West African refugee camps Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars have performed on some of the world’s most prestigious stages and matured into one of Africa’s top touring and recording bands.

There will also be a chance to be part of the Radio 3 family as some of the station’s best known programmes come to the city.
