Said Mulvey: “As a Cambridge boy born and bred I’m honoured to be the guest curator of next year’s Folk Festival and I’m excited to bring a flavour of the music I love into the mix.”

Mulvey follows 2018’s curator Rhiannon Giddens who performed three times herself and took part in debates and Q&As.
