#LoveFolkFest 2019

Our fifth annual Love Folk Festival returns to Southport for a weekend long celebration featuring new, upcoming and traditional folk music. Join us at The Atkinson for the little festival with the big heart and spend the most romantic weekend of the year dancing, singing, drinking, eating and generally loving folk!


Sound of the Sirens

Exeter-based duo Abbe Martin and Hannah Wood dovetail beautifully on their debut album For All Our Sins which was released in 2017 to wide praise including from R2 Magazine who called it a “stunning debut collection”.

Their live shows combine a natural facility for connecting with their audiences and unforgettable performances with warmth, humour and, above all, real conviction. They have played a number of shows & festivals over the last few years garnering fans in the UK and Europe as well as supporting Rick Astley and Kiefer Sutherland on their UK tours.

2018 will see them play a number of shows and giving fans a taste of new material as they plan towards releasing a new album in 2019.
