An absolutely brilliant Festival again this year, even the weather was a repeat of last year.
Everyone I spoke to had already booked for next year before they left. The amazing thing is that we know what we are going to get as next year’s lineup is practically finalised.
And just look at that “early bird” price!

Did anyone here see Dean Friedman? We saw him last year and we were blown away. He was amazing! I wondered how he would go down at a folk festival.

He was on during one of our Stewarding stints, so we didn't see him. No-one was raving about him at the bar*, later, though.

*Rhubarb cider ran out every night, to be replenished by the next morning. Most refreshing.

I saw him in Crawley a few weeks ago. I suspect that his delivery may be a little low key for a festival audience, especially if they are unfamiliar with his music (other than the hits). I enjoyed the show but I am a big fan especially of his first two albums and even to me he does seem to undersell some of the songs in live performance.

I’m not keen on his music but I really enjoy his performances (does that make sense?)
It was obvious that those at the front were really enjoying the set, but further up the field the response was polite rather than enthusiastic.

I was down the front and enjoyed his set, as did the people around me.

Quite impressed that he can still hit those high notes.

I'm sure he's happy to settle for that!

What a great festival. Lovely site and lovely people . One of the organisers even drove the motorhome owner next to us to town to get some gas. Classy.
Gerry Colvin was awesome as usual. Superb sets from Reg Meuross, Hunter Muskett, Little Johnny England. Pretty tasty from Trad Aar, FOF , Steeleye, Burgess Nicol and Kemp. However devastated to miss Edwina after my little do. Many thanks to the superb medical team , although I did make it easier by collapsing outside their tent! All back to normal now. I think its going to be one of those incidents where everyone will claim to have been there at the time.  Grin
One (very) small criticism is that it doesn't really need 2 warm up/welcome days.

Onward to Cropredy.

Excellent festival again this year and like many people we have taken the early bird option.  I liked the new tent "The Fringe" but I really wish there were more workshops (guitar based but ensemble as well) and wonder if they might look to the Purbeck FF for this (it's what got me started playing with others).
