Joining them in the latest announcement are the likes of Billy Bragg, Songhoy Blues, The Jayhawks, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Phosphorescent and C Duncan.

Acts also joining this year’s line-up also include Oysterband, Dancing Years, Dan Whitehouse, Jacqui McShee’s Pentagle, Luke Concannon (Nizlopi) and Sam Lee.

This year’s Moseley Folk Festival takes place in Moseley Park, Birmingham on September 2nd-4th and tickets are on sale now, starting at £42 for the day and £95 for the weekend.
