Catrin Finch & Seckou Keita are among the artists named to perform at this year’s Musicport world music festival – October 17-19.
Voted Indoor Festival of the Year at last year’s Fatea Awards, Musicport has gradually established itself as one of the UK’s most eclectic world music events. With Bassekou Kouyaté & Ngoni ba confirmed to perform at the festival’s launch event on March 14, the Yorkshire seaside town looks set to once again showcase an array of global musical talent alongside a generous portion of fish & chips.
This year Musicport will welcome the much-lauded musical pairing of Catrin Finch & Seckou Keita to the Whitby Spa Pavillion with Tunisian oud and qanun masters Amine and Hamza. British folk duo O’Hooley & Tidow are also set to appear.
Other notable acts include Robyn Hitchcock, the Lucy Ward and Bulgarian folk singers the Perunika Trio.
