In its 43rd year, Home County is London's longest running festival. "Home County has long since been a great supporter of local music here in London", states Darin Addison, Artistic Director for the festival.
Coming up in a month headlining acts include:
Friday, July 15: The Sadies (back from playing the festival's 40th Anniversary)
Saturday, July 16: Northern Pikes (first time at Home County)
Sunday, July 17: Còig (first time at Home County)
Local artist, Taylor Holden will kick off the Friday night line up and couldn't be more proud: "Hav[ing] a local act open the whole festival up feels like a big attest to how much the scene has built and how much Home County has been a part of that."
Bilingual female duo and best friends, Georgian Bay, has dreamed of the time they would perform at London's Home County Folk and Art Festival. Joëlle remarks at how meaningful their debut performance at Home County is to them: "The Home County festival has been one that's been on my bucket list. I love the sense of community and also it's one that I've been to time and again and so many artists that I look up to like Sarah Harmer, Great Lake Swimmers, Bruce Colburn, so many performers have come through here...Just to be able to say that you've joined the ranks of people who've been here is, for me, it feels a little indescribable, but just...humbling."
The music scene in London is flourishing and Home County is a big part of that.
