Belatedly:

The Shrewsbury Folk Festival (Fri 23rd to Mon 26th Aug 2013) is being streamed live over the internet.

Who's playing:

Live Stream:

If last year is anything to go by they'll continue to repeat some of the performances for a few days after the event, so you might get a chance to catch some already missed.

Returned last night - loads of good stuff but too much Americana and not enough folk music from other countries and no weird

Still a great event

Only one of the main stages was streamed. There was more variety on the other stages - and in the singarounds and sessions!

For me it was the Americana, that made it one of the best yet. Tim O'Brien, California Chocolate Drops, Barnstar all played stunning sets. This festival would not need to be so big if it concentrated on so called Folk Music. I say "so called" because it is mostly self written tripe.

i agree - barnstar in particular played 2 great sets. a technically brilliant bunch of musicians but also really good with the audience. on the other hand -what is the matter with the be good tanyas? three great cds but live they are sullen, disconnected and with little communication on stage. very disappointing. it did get better when they were joined on stage by zac bassplayer from barnstar who could teach them a lot about performing. it felt like they were being kicked from behind and were almost surprised into showing the ability they have.

I enjoyed the Be Good Tanyas music but agree they had zero charisma or stagecraft

Festivals can have who they like but

So called?

What 'self written tripe' was that then?

For me, it was one of the best Shrewsbury FFs I've been to since it started.

Nic Jones was superb with his son's accompaniment using his father's guitar style, & their other accompanist Belinda O'Hooley on piano and accordion who sounded very much like Jo Brand & delivered similar dry comic lines [but without any crudity!]

I'd gone along early so as to get a seat as I'd anticipated that the concert would be bursting at the seams & I was most surprised that this wasn't the case & there were many empty spaces.

However, I got see the preceding act which was Lady Maisery & they were excellent both in their unusual harmonies & in their musicianship.

The Tuneworks sessions were great & I learned a lot as it's the 1st time I've attended all the workshops & I thoroughly enjoyed them.

The sloe [sp!!] sessions were really helpful as I use a variety of instruments: guitar, harmonicas, melodeon & whistles.

The final normal speed sesh was excellent though hard work but great - it was like playing with an enormous folk orchestra!

Many thanks to all the facilitators.

I've just been introduced to de shrewsbury folk festival, and I feel its something I would love to be part of . Am from Africa - in Eastern Uganda frm Mba Masaba land. Where boys are circumsized to become men. I am now with the oldest band as a lead lead dancer and backup singer, I also design most of the dance costumes for both contempary dances, tradition, and modern dance.

Am hoping to visit my sister soon, but would really love to be part of this festival even as a helper if u let me. My names are Jasintah Wamboka. Email me at JasinwamboJasin@yahoo.com.

Thx, and keep it up, its Educational!
