Lancaster's up the other end of the country - but there's a lively folk scene round that part of the world.

She's not far from Fleetwood, where there's a great festival, and the Fylde (the area round Blackpool) where there's a lot happening it looks. Anyway, here's a site that links to things like that

And here is a link to a lot of stuff about folk music happenings. And here is the Folk Roots fest rival list

Make sure she has a Mudcat T-shirt for festivals. She should have a good time anyway.

And, in the light of here hobbies, tell her to ask about Les Barker's poem Cosmo the Fairly Accurate knife-thrower - or maybe someone on the Mudcat could post a copy.
