Imelda May returns to Cambridge for Beyond the Festival
PUBLISHED: 09:00 04 December 2016
Evolving from her trademark rockabilly style to a lyrical and soul -oriented sound, critically acclaimed Irish singer Imelda May returns to Cambridge following the release of her latest album Call Me, produced by the legendary T Bone Burnett.
Her performance is part of Beyond the Festival - a series of performances at the Corn Exchange under the banner of Cambridge Folk Festival.
Starting life in 1965, the festival has gone on to become one of the most prestigious folk events in the world and enjoys sell-out success year after year.
Now, it is offering loyal supporters three different types of membership as part of The 1965 Club Membership Scheme, each providing various benefits such as priority booking and discounts, with the donations raised going to support the festival’s unique work with new and emerging musicians.
Artist development has always been central to the values of Cambridge Folk Festival, as seen by dedicated emerging talent stages The Den, The Hub and the Club Tent showcases, which have hosted artists including Jake Bugg, Newton Faulkner, Seth Lakeman and The Staves early in their careers. The 1965 Club will help to nurture the next generation of headliners.
