Middlewich FAB Festival will have a real international flavour to its 2016 line-up with artists hailing from the USA, Cuba, Sweden, Canada, India, Africa and countless other destinations from across the globe.

The USA’s The Roamin’ Jasmine and Billy Lee and The Swamp Critters will bring creole flair with their Cuban-inspired blues while Cuba’s Salsa! with Cafe Con Leche will give a taste of Caribbean tradition.

FAB Fringe will feature Shoutin’ Red from Sweden, whose sound is inspired by old American music, along with Canada’s Sultans of String and Ireland’s Coda.
