GUEST,nickp (cookieless) Conwy Bluegrass Festival (10) RE: Conwy Bluegrass Festival 10 Jun 06


Hmm,

Well Mr I.M.Pecunious, it's not cheap but then again compared with various other festivals it's not too expensive either. There's a certain amount of 'damned if you do, damned if you don't' when it comes to that sort of things. I had been led to believe that it was originally planned as just a picking weekend but it has obviously grown.

But... if you were at a loose end in February (16th-18th) there is an American Old Time Music festival run by the Friends of American Old Time Music and Dance FOAOTMAD held in the wilds of Gainsborough, Lincolnshire featuring none other than the Orpheus Supertones (led by the legendary Walt Koken). Non- members price is still (for you) expensive at 35 (including camping - indoor or outdoor) but for members I can announce that it will be a only 25 for a weekend ticket.

OK it's an unashamed 'plug' taking advantage of a related thread but can blame our Chairman Ray for starting it...   

And good luck to John, Gill & co at Conwy and the team at Llandudno... it's a thankless task.

Nick
