I've been watching tv coverage of this years Cambridge(UK) Folk Festival.
I don't know if it's just my age, but I wasn't impressed with most of what was shown.
And who was that dreadful blonde with the Iron Maiden t-shirt?
Give me a break!

Unfortunately, Cambridge was never really a Folk Festival, despite its name & pioneer status. I got fed up with going on about it in my Folk Review monthly column way back in the 70s.

So, no change there, then?

I thought the coverage quite good. The cameras did not continually flick about like some in shows and they did show a selection of main acts.

I thought the information poor- who would be on when.

It would still not encourage me to go. Too much middle of the road stuff and all that standing. We went to Shetland and Shrewsbury this year for the first time and thought them both excellent. Broadstairs had poor PA at times and was over priced for what it was.

Denise has been ill so much this year that we've only been to local festivals. Personally I think. TV is the only way I'd watch cambridge - whoever they booked. Its the best way. Sat in your front room - not in field full of crushed beer cans., a civilised crap whenever you feel like, no queueing up for the lav, and the foods better at home.
