On Thursday the acts include: Saidat, Julian Taylor, Megan Bonnell, Alash Ensemble, AHI and The Small Glories.
And on Friday you can hear: The Marrieds, Ken Yates, Leela Gilday, Wolf Saga, Terra Lightfoot and DJ NDN.
While the event is free, as with the usual festival, donations are appreciated and tax receipts available.
