I'm tired of hearing about just one festival on this forum, so I thought
I thought I'd start a new thread about ALL the different folk festivals in the UK...from Abbotsbury to Moonbeams and all fun places inbetween..

Which ones are folks planning on going to this year?

I don't go to folk festivals - or any other festivals, for that matter - because I'm not a huge fan of them, on the whole. Alan and I popped up to run a pub session at Warwick last year - great fun, but a long way to go for a 3-hour session.

Having said that, I shall be attending all 4 days of the Bradfield Traditional Music Weekend, which is a miniature in festival terms, and enjoying playing music, singing, drinking beer and eating pies at the Royal in Dungworth. All in glorious countryside in the Peaks.

And I shall take advantage of its proximity to Sheffield to pop down into that city and buy a musical saw from one of the few makers left. Even if I never get to play it properly, I can always saw a few bodhrans in half at future sessions... :-)

Absolutely no idea this year : a time of personal change and upheaval. Probably Oxford, even though it's been cancelled per se ( there are lots of "fringe" and ex-officio events planned).
                   Maybe, just maybe, anything in France, especially in the Ariege region, or anywhere else within 100 miles or so of Toulouse ; hard to be certain just yet !!
                  Maybe Sidmouth, if someone from above ,who loves camping, can be persuaded to attend ! --All things are possible !

Delighted to help.

7th, 8th, 9th and 10th July 2011 and Ortigueira is the biggest festival in Western Europe (as far as I know). Three stages, Oysterband, Shooglenifty, Anxo Lorenzo and Cristian Pato are the big attractions for me.
The local tourist board and government subsidise it - so there are no charges! Details are on the website - there are some contradictions on the dates on the English bit ( e.g some pages have not had 2010 altered).

Whilst not a folk festival as such, Lymm Folk Club run a series of extra events during Lymm Village Festival, which this year starts on Thursday June 23rd and runs for ten days.

I'll be putting the events list up around Easter time, but a useful download for the club generally is an RTF list that is updated weekly.

Over the weekend of 25th/26th June we're running an Open Mic session, songwriting competition (5th year running) and concerts with Geoff Higginbottom, The Time Bandits and Pete Coe (who is also a judge for the competition).

Other guests over the festival period include Stanley Accrington, the club residents in concert, Peter and Barbara Snape and a surprise concert yet to be announced.

Unlike a 'conventional' folk festival, we won't be having events running concurrently, workshops or 'meet the artiste' sessions. For this reason we only sell tickets 'per concert' (there is no 'Season Ticket') - but tickets are cheaper if booked in advance, which applies to any guest night over the whole year.

Ticket booking forms can be downloaded from our website - if the form you need isn't yet available, you can either check back nearer the time, or contact me by telephone, snail mail, email or PM me here.

Please Note: the email addresses on the site are wrong! To cut down on spam, the '@' is replaced by '_AT_', which needs to be changed before you try to send your message.

Some years ago Lizzie, you said you might put me on your dance card.

A deafening silence since then......

Hope you are well.

We might have had the dance already of course, maybe you didn't own up to who you were.

Sorry pressed the wrong button there. Have no fear Lizzie - if I ever saw you in real life I would run a mile. Cowardice I know but there you are.

Lizzie as far as I am concerned you are as barmy as a box of frogs. I simply wondered if you were prepared to answer the question you asked everyone else to answer. Clearly not.

Some time ago, last year you flounced off Mudcat promising never to return. And not for the first time. Many people breathed a sigh of relief. Those who knew your track record knew you would be back.

Now take a look at the threads you have posted since then. Now count the ones I have contributed to.

You know for a cyberstalker and a pervert who is supposedly following you around - I don't really do a lot of it.

Like I said...........box of frogs.

Swinton!

Possibly Shipley.

Both well away from the coast so as to avoid screeching, foul-mouthed birds. I may risk Fylde again - I think the seagulls there are friedlier than those down south...

:D

Don't forget St Neots Folk Festival on the weekend of June 10th- 11th-12th.
Anahata ( treewind) and I will be there with a presentation of Cambridge Folk Songs and a concert spot. The festival website seems to have a broken link. Try googling St Neots folk club.

A response from Lizzie that only contains 8 words....
That's a first, surely?

Whoops - Sorry Shepley and sorry for all those looking for a festival in Shipley! All these W Yorks towns look alike to me...

The festival is actually in Shepley, which is a bit more rural than Shipley to say the least. Although it doesn't house Salt's Mill...

:D

I mentioned Fylde too. It's the only festival we're actually doing for the first time. Looking forward to it.

I get these Northern names muddled too David - specially Shipley, Skipton, (Both mean Boat Town as it happens) Shepley (Sheep Clearing) etc..

I think Shakespeare's Mr Omlette had a problem too...

"Tebay or Nottingley, Theakston Wetwang.
Wetherby Nottingham in the Minedrum
To Suffield the Sligsby and Harrogate of Out Rawcliffe Forton                        
Otley Talke Armley against a Seacroft Trull
Anlaby Upperthong Endon..."

Glad you were thinking of Shepley - brilliant lineup IMHO and I understand there may also be an added attraction in the form of a bookseller with previously cherished books about folk music for sale.
