Folk & Blues Returns to Wolverton!

The sixth annual Wolverton Folk & Blues Fair will take place in the stunning grounds of Wolverton Manor, Shorwell, Isle of Wight, on Saturday 14th May 2016. 11.30am to 8.00pm.

After a sell-out successful launch in 2011, the festival has been gaining momentum with fantastic bands/artists each year, along with locally produced food, children’s activities, tea tent and not forgetting the Real Ale tent!

Headlining the event is none other than award-winning American bluesman Eugene ‘Hideaway’ Bridges. Born in New Orleans, seven times USA Blues Music Award nominee Eugene Bridges is a towering presence; a big man with a huge voice and great guitar skills.

As well as the Main Stage, the popular ‘Beer Tent Acoustic Stage’ will make a welcome return this year providing a full and varied programme, featuring some of the best folk and blues musicians the Isle of Wight has to offer.
