The John Ward Band

Four members of the John Ward Band play guitar, double bass and sing into mics on the First Light sunlight stage


12:15-13:00 Sunlight Stage
Saturday 18 June

John Ward is a well-known folk singer-songwriter who has lived in Lowestoft all his life and takes his inspiration from the town, past and present.  John has established himself as a prolific and formidable songwriter on the folk, roots and acoustic music scene and over the years he has released 8 critically-acclaimed CDs.  John tours extensively across the UK and beyond and we are delighted to be welcoming him and  his band back to the Sunlight stage, where their performance at First Light in 2019, was for many, a highlight of the festival.

Joined by Jim O’Toole (violin and vocals), Ian Sainsbury (keyboard and vocals) Lynne Ward (accordian and vocals) and with John’s stylish vocals and skilful guitar playing, this is sure to be a dynamic performance!
