Irish band Clannad and Scotland's The Proclaimers are among the headliners playing this year's Cambridge Folk Festival.

The festival, held at Cherry Hinton Hall between 26 and 29 July, also features singer-songwriters Joan Armatrading and Billy Bragg.

Other acts include BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards winner June Tabor.

There will also be one of the first performances by folk legend Nic Jones in more than 30 years.

His 1980 album Penguin Eggs is widely recognised as one of the finest folk albums of all time.

His career was cut short by a car accident in 1982.

Canadian singer Loreena McKennitt is also appearing at the festival, which this year marks its 48th birthday.

Highlights of the festival are broadcast on BBC Radio 2.
