Fox performed at last year's event as the supporting act for The Black Feathers. Such was his welcome that he was asked the following day to headline this year's event.

He will be accompanied by his friend John Parker on double bass. John last performed at the event in 2018 as part of The Willows band.

Anna Renae is returning to the event, put on by music lovers Duncan and Vanessa Chappell, for the third time in a row.

She recently performed in Abingdon at the Loose Cannon Showcase, as well as at Oxford Folk Weekend, and at the Beardy Folk Festival in Shropshire.
