Who's appearing at Cornwall Folk Festival at Wadebridge this year?
I am thinking of going down over the bank holiday weekend.

Weather forecast good, though today Friday overcast 40 miles away. Always good sessions with the Bridge on Wool usually generous about closing times.

Looking at the website programme - it would appear that this year there are not going to be official Festval gigs taking place in the pubs - or have I got that wrong?

If it is the case - this will be welcome as I have have found it difficult at past Festivals to find pubs where informal sessions can take place, without feeling that you are treading on people's toes.

Shambles - my guess is that there will be person(s) at the usual places to get the sessions started, but I agree that occasionally they become more like informal concerts and you can feel left out. Happens at any Festival, I suppose. The better session 'hosts' are much in demand to stop that happening and make sure everyone who wants to gets a fair crack. The website doesn't show details but the programme will.

I gave up trying to find any pub to play (except possibly The Ship) and did not attend last year.

The problem at Wadebridge seems to be that the idea that these official 'informal concerts' in pubs are a good thing. Now I tend to think that this is the worst of all worlds. Because the audience includes anyone who happened to be in the pub at the time - it is hardly ideal for performance. And because it IS a performance - it is not ideal for informal music making and participation either.

I don't think that 'hosts' are really necessary to enable sessions either. All that is really required is a venue (or venues) where informal gatherings can take place - without interuption - for the duration of the festival.

Point taken - we'll see what happens. I'm only there for one day this year, but I know others who will be there for the whole w/e and perhaps get some feedback. This years (new) organisers are generally experienced and will take suggestions for next time well, I think.
