They will be joined by Schrödinger’s Strings, Rhythm Travellers, The Norfolk Broads, The Rum Dogs, Diverse Roots, The Shackleton Trio, LongShoreDrift and The Punk Folkers.
West Norfolk councillor Elizabeth Nockolds, cabinet member for culture, heritage and health, said: “We have a really varied line-up for this year with something for everyone.
“We are encouraging people to bring a picnic and settle down to enjoy a real feast of music from talented local musicians and singers. The perfect way to while away an afternoon.”
