Festival organisers say:
"We're thrilled that piping legends Ross Ainslie and Jarlath Henderson will be playing the festival on Sunday night this year, which will see the Celtic Spectacular move to Friday night. Expert sets caller and singer Jerry O'Reilly will be joining us from Ireland, and we'll be welcoming Fest Noz band Fortuna from Brittany on bombard, biniou and guitar.
Scottish party animals Tourbus Fortune will be bringing their own style of ‘covers ceilidh’ to the festival, with popular chart hits mixed with your more traditional ceilidh fare. We're delighted to welcome The Manx Folk Dance Society to the festival for the first time this year, as well as The Valley Choir from Wales.
Our opening night concert on Thursday will feature Jim Causley and Lukas Drinkwater with a musical tribute to the work of Cornish poet Charles Causely. On the Sunday afternoon there's a special concert of choral music in the Cornish and Welsh language featuring Keur Heb Hanow, the Perraners and the Valley Choir.
The beach ceili will also be back by popular demand outside the Watering Hole on the Sunday afternoon.
More artists and events to be announced soon, including our local line-up. The programme will be online by mid-May.
As many of you will be aware planning permission is being sought for the site of the Ponsmere Hotel. Lowender Peran will take place in the Ponsmere this year, from 15th to 19th October.
