Hebden Bridge will have a new music festival in 2015.

After the demise of The Blues Festival and Folk Roots weekend a small group of musicians and others have decided it is time for a festival to celebrate the great range of music in the Calder Valley.

Hebden Bridge based Red Hippo, recognisable to many because of Daz Jones’ sousaphone, have already agreed to perform. Also coming will be Plumhall, featuring Michelle Plum, formerly of Chumbawamba, and Nick B Hall. The Hill Millies will be organising the folk dance element of the festival.
