Other acts on the bill at the event, which will run from Friday, August 25, through to Bank Holiday Monday, August 28, include The Blockheads, Foy Vance and BBC Radio Two award nominees Megson and Jim Causley.

The family festival will take place once more at the Thame Showground and as well as the multitude of live music acts, other activities will include workshops, a youth programme, ceilidh and dance sessions, a folk club, street theatre, storytelling and spoken word, film screenings, a real ale bar, street food and market stalls.

Visitors to the festival can camp in tents and motor homes and stay for the whole four days. But there is also the opportunity to just pop in for the day to enjoy the atmosphere and activities on offer. The festival has always prided itself on being suitable for the whole family and many bring several generations with them.

Towersey Festival director Joe Heap said: “We have another great mix of artists this year including BBC Radio Two favourite KT Tunstall, as well as Towersey stalwarts such as Jon Boden, Eliza Carthy and Show of Hands who have visited the festival many times over the years.

“We’re very excited by our full line-up.

“Off the back of a successful 2016 we have already sold out of both our Tier One and Tier Two tickets, so we know our audience is really looking forward to Towersey 2017 as much as we are.”
