Guernsey Pete Any London (UK) Folk Festival's? (23) RE: Any London (UK) Folk Festival's? 28 Feb 11

The Fitzrovia Festival was one of the local community festivals that used to flourish under the benign and generous gaze of the Camden Borough when it was Labour-run.
Dingles Folk Club certainly had a hand in it; I remember playing off the back of a 3-ton lorry for the Saturday afternoon ceilidh/barn-dance.
Ah, happy days !
Later that same evening our band-leader fell asleep, still playing her accordion, in the middle of another barn-dance. The electric-mandolin-player woke her up by changing key !
Keith Summers is the only London-based festival remaining, and apparently it will be its last year, as it was set up from a legacy left by Keith, and it is running out.
Return To Camden Town, as was previously mentioned, is very much Irish, and has also shrunk a lot from its original inception.
