    Rhiannon Giddens Named Cambridge Folk Festival Guest Curator
    Cambridge Folk Festival

    Rhiannon Giddens has been announced as the guest curator for the 2018 Cambridge Folk Festival. Next year's festival which will be its 54th year, will take place August 2–5, 2018.

    "I am honoured to be the next guest curator for Cambridge Folk Festival following on from the amazing Jon Boden who has done a wonderful job this year," says Giddens. "Having played the Festival before I know how special Cambridge is and I am really excited to be contributing to the line-up next year as well as performing."

    "In the same year as the Festival's historic twinning with America’s legendary Newport Festival," says Cambridge Live Managing Director Steve Bagnall, "we are truly delighted that such an exciting talent as Rhiannon has accepted the role of guest curator for 2018."

    Rhiannon Giddens is currently touring North America with music from her new album, Freedom Highway. She follows a set at the Newport Folk Festival yesterday with shows in the Northeast in the week ahead, including a return to Newport to perform at the Newport Jazz Festival next weekend. Giddens heads to the UK and Ireland to tour in November. For details and tickets, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
