Norfolk's biggest folk and acoustic roots music event continues its 10 anniversary with an international programme. Folk on the Pier runs at the end of the pier at Cromer until Sunday.

It kicks off today, Friday, at 2pm with Breton-UK outfit the Churchfitters, plus a rare performance of Jewish gipsy songs and music from Israeli singer Mor Karbasi and leading folk singer Bob Fox. The evening (7.30pm) session features guitarist Julie Ellison, slide-guitar groovers the Spikedrivers, and the UK's top rhythm'n'blues trio the Hamsters.

Saturday afternoon set is taken by the inimitable Sid Kipper, followed by folk legend Ashley Hutchings presenting music from Lark Rise, originally created for the National Theatre productions in the 1980s. Then in the evening (7pm) it's The Songs of Nick Drake with Keith James and Rick Foot, Tanglefoot (Canada) and Shooglenifty (Scotland).

The final day sees Mawkin:Causley, Truckstop Honeymoon (US) and Whapweasel in the afternoon session, with a storming last-night bill starting at 7pm and featuring acclaimed duo Show of Hands, Little Johnny England and the Cromer Smugglers.
