Subject: Folk and Roots August Updates and Cambridge Festival Reports
Just a very quick note and suggestion that you may like to pay a visit to Folk and Roots this weekend, the site has been updated with hundreds of events for August and beyond and also a whole range of new reviews including Bob Cheevers, Eliza Carthy, Moonlighting, The Rapparees, Trowbrige Pump Festival and a lot more.....
Also barely a day goes by when we arent adding new links, festival details and this weekend we will be having a daily report from Cambridge Folk Festival so come pay a visit to to read reports...
Whilst we are here just to highlight a few of the tours taking place this autumn, firstly the Oysterband will be celebrating 30 years on the road with a special tour including guests Spiers and Boden and Edward II, really not to be missed - see for details, The Carolina Chocolate Drops are returning for a tour in mid November, see, Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick are back together again in September and Barron Brady may well be appearing in a folk club near you ('Two young performers who confidently uphold the richness of the British folk tradition with superbly crafted self-written songs and fine interpretations of English folk song, beautifully sung with great sincerity and with impeccable musical accompaniment. Their beguiling lyrics often draw upon the stories, legends and folklore of the South-West.)
Oh and finally if you are in the South East/London you could do far worse than checking out the Green Note Cafe, rapidly becoming Londons best (if it isnt already) acoustic and roots venue, excellent music and atmosphere every night, friendly staff, and an outstanding schedule lined up for the rest of the year, Martin Carthy, Jim Moray, Martin Simpson, Tim O'Brien, Stacey Earle, Tom Pacheco, Eilen Jewell and more see for details but leave tickets for folk and roots...
But enough just to suggest again that you might like to pay a visit to folk and roots over the weekend, otherwise its all a bit pointless updating the site....
Happy Folking
