Rob and I will be there. Going home each night because we live close enough fortunately, but we have season tickets. Really looking forward to seeing Les Barker tonight, John Kirkpatrick's lunchtime special tomorrow and Eliza Carthy tomorrow night. Also planning to get to as many sessions as we can. Hope the weather holds up!

Refresh. Anyone else? Surely with those performers there'd be some takers? Maybe they're down there already.

.. same thing I say every year..

Yes me and the mrs would love to go
but neither of us can drive
and public transport provision in North Somerset
is completely inadequate.

At least Burnham on Sea free folk festival in late Autumn
is near a main train and bus route
and we have free overnight accommodation at a relative's house.
Shame it can't afford to book 'big names'like Priddy.

Considering the Growing success of recent December Butlins 'folk' weekenders up north,
it would sure be an interesting prospect for Priddy organizers
or some other enterprising promoter
to consider trialling a spring/summer Folk Weekend
at the Pontins camp at Sand Bay ?????

Well I thought Priddy was blummin excellent! There was a wide range of really good acts - lots I'd heard of, some I'd heard of but seen seen and some I'd never come across but found they're absolutely brilliant. Phillip Henry would be in the latter group: beat-boxing blues harp - wow!

What Priddy's organisers do really well, apart from programming excellent artists, is allowing a fantastic village atmosphere to develop.

Cheers,
Jane

Jane, I totally agree with you about Phillip Henry. Rob and I actually bumped into him and Hannah on the Saturday afternoon and had a little session with them without knowing who they were. When we caught their concert later that night, we were blown away! Excellent performers.

I also agree about the village atmosphere. That's how I like festivals to be.

There was one act on the Saturday night that we were expecting great things from but we were rather disappointed. I'd better not say any more.
