Thread Name: 50th and last Sidmouth festival?
Subject: RE: 50th and last Sidmouth festival?
Steve Heap and co, have done a massive job in making folk events and organisations into well respected and economically viable products.
His given us the AFO (which is a fantastic resource for us festival organisers) and through Sidmouth was born Shooting Roots which does wonders for the evolution of the folk indsutry.
I think it'll be a damn shame if Sidmouth was lost, its the only festival where non folkies know about it,it beats the hell out of Cambridge and is a folk festival for all people.How about some Government intervention or why dont the audiences just buy some rain jackets!?
