GUEST,Old Traddie Final Four Fools Festival 24 - 26 June (10) Final Four Fools Festival 24 - 26 June 14 Apr 11


I for one am really sad to hear this is the final Four Fools Folk Festival. I have been to every one (and this is the 23rd). What great love Angie and Ken must have for the tradition, they even took their festival with them when they moved. The weekend is truly a celebration of traditional music and song with the emphasis on friendliness and sharing. There are no big PAd concerts, just wonderful ballad sessions, singarounds, meet the artistes and those unique events where you really feel the guests are sharing songs with you.

This year's lineup is wonderful. There's Roy Harris, Pete Coe, Bill Whaley and Dave Fletcher, Peta Webb and Ken Hall, Kevin and Ellen Mitchell, Barrie and Ingrid Temple, Ken Wilson, Sid Calderbank, Malcolm Gibbons, Mark Dowding, His Worship and the Pig, John Morris. And there will be others around I have no doubt. A true singers festival. I'm really looking forward to yet another unique weekend from the little festival with the big heart. Rightly voted by festivalgoers and artistes alike as the best singers festival around. See you there. And good luck and many thanks to Angie and Ken for all their hard work, they deserve to escape to sunny Saltburn.    Please, please please may there be another Four Fools Fest. somewhere, some time.
