The Albert Dock's Folk Festival on the Dock began in 2016, presented by the BBC's Janice Long. The event welcomed over 100 folk, roots and sea shanty acts making almost 450 performers. With last year's inaugural event being so successful, the FREE event is back over August Bank Holiday weekend to celebrate Liverpool's rich musical heritage.
