Thread Name: Faversham Hop Festival
Subject: RE: Faversham Hop Festival
Well, the Saturday night session at the Crown and Anchor was pretty good.

Lot of singing, even if three non-believers were intent on pretending that it was a perfectly normal Saturday night and totally ignored the existence of a room full of singers.

The problem with Faversham hop festival is that it has never really decided what it wants to be from a folk perspective. It's organised by people who don't want a folk festival and who think that by putting on a broad spectrum of acts they can keep everyone happy

The local folk club puts on a concert on Friday night but take virtually no other part in the weekend. Hardly anyone from the club is in evidence at any of the singarounds.


The moral is - If you want it to happen then you have to make it happen yourself.
