Here's the list from Dirty Linen. I have rearranged their list and sorted it by country, state or province, city, and name of festival. To keep this list from becoming quickly obsolete, I have omitted dates, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, exact locations/venues, and specific performers. Those can be obtained from the Dirty Linen site (which is arranged by date) or from the web sites linked-to below. England, Scotland, and Wales are listed separately.

Contributions from several other people have been incorporated into this list. Thanks to Lin in Kansas, Brian Hoskin, Skipper Jack, and Trapper. Also, the list has become too big to fit in one message, so festivals in the USA are given in the next message. --JoeClone, 27-Jul-01.
