BBC Radio 3 takes up residence at Hull Truck Theatre for a three-day festival celebrating the city's rich folk heritage and our international links. 

Uproot will feature a series of live concerts from one of the most recognisable faces in modern British folk music, Eliza Carthy, joined by some very special invited guests, alongside international artists Warsaw Village Band and Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars, representing Hull's links with its twin towns in Sierra Leone and Poland.
