THE NEW Wimborne Minster Folk Festival has announced its line-up for this summer’s event.

Artists confirmed include the Albion Band and BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards nominees Blair Dunlop, the Carrivick Sisters and Katriona Gilmore and Jamie Roberts.

It is the first year for the revamped festival, which has been organised by a new committee of volunteers after the event was cancelled in August last year. Organisers have promised three days of folk, family and fun, with the much-loved mix of dance displays, family activities, workshops and stalls returning to the historic minster town’s streets on June 7, 8 and 9.
