Barry Arts Festival welcome Cardboard Fox to the West End

Bluegrass band Cardboard Fox are the latest guests at the 2018 Barry Arts Festival, playing at the Barry West End Club on St Nicholas Road on Sunday 7th October (7pm doors).

The four-piece Bath based group include the Carrivick Sisters, Charlotte and Laura, who have previously wowed audiences in Barry playing guitar and fiddle respectively, alongside Joe Tozer on mandolin and James Breese on double bass.

Their first album won the 2015 Spiral Earth Award for Best Debut Album and a year later they were spotlighted in the International Bluegrass Music Association’s 2016 World of Bluegrass event.

The band come to Barry after a tour of Germany in the Spring and playing at folk festivals across the Summer.

Barry Arts Festival organiser, Mike Duggan, said:

“We are all looking forward to Cardboard Fox performing their lively bluegrass set here in Barry.

“The Carrivick Sisters have previously come here as a duo so having them play with a band will be a real treat for anybody who enjoys live folk music.

“We would like to thank Barry Town Council for their support for this year’s Festival.”

Tickets, which are £10, are available online at, in person at the West End Club and at Vinyl Frontier on Holton Road, Barry, or via Mike Duggan on 07561143114
