The Shrewsbury Folk Festival has just signed the Duhks (pronounced Ducks) for 2008. This will be a unique opportunity for audiences in the UK to see one of the hottest bands on the North American folk circuit. The band comprises five young musicians from Winnipeg Manitoba, who will be wowing audiences in Australia in March with their brand of acoustic music, which includes soul, gospel, folk, Brazilian samba, old time country, Celtic, Zydeco and their brilliant interpretation of Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" (see the festival web site).

A simply nock out band - not to be missed.

If you run out of camping space will you spread it onto the other big field where the day parking is?? Or will that make the festival too unwieldy?

Its such a good site. Must try the porta-showers this year.

I camped with 3 friends who I knew, but they didnt know each other. We all got on very well and are aiming to camp and steward again this year. We signed the list.

Being on home ground I met so many people I knew. It was great.

Mr Happy - steward's forms are being sent out in about a weeks time. They are a few days late - I am waiting for the newsletter to arrive from the printers.

Greg - I would never have dared to call it the 'Old codger's tent' I will have to make sure there is a sprinkling of young people in there....

Codgers? People who Codge? Old Codgers, Young Codgers?

So, have we come across another lost English Folk Tradition? Should we scour the old peoples homes and workhouses of the land for people who know of this tradition? Could Greg do a workshop? I think we must act now before another of our great traditions is lost.

Now, wasn't I supposed to be doing something purposeful?

I remember when the Kipper Family split up, Sid used to explain the non-appearance of 'father' as "He's gone into an old folkies home".

There's probably a lot of old codgers in there these days. Perhaps you could bring them out for the day at Shrewsbury - but keep them well away from the Main Marquee, or at least get them to turn their hearing aids off. They won't like it you know.

I'd better be careful - I'm now officially on the slippery slope to old-codgerdom

Talking of 'old codgers' there is a Shopmobility based in the multi story carpark by the bus station in Smithfield Road, for any folkies that need to get around the town. Think you need a blue badge to book them.

When I get old and wear purple... I want an electric scooter and run all the shoppers over too!!
