Thread Name: Sidmouth Folk Festival 2014
Subject: RE: Sidmouth Folk Festival 2014
The Festival is slowly changing as the next generation rolls around, and a good thing to, everything needs to be reinvented from time to time. However, some changes are not for the better;

a) Too many mini pa's with X Factor wanabes behind them.
b) The dancing on the promenade has more or less disappeared.
c) Pop music in many Pubs
d) Less fringe musicians, for example The Bedford now only seems to have a session in one bar, a few years ago it was min of two sometimes three.

I'm uneasy.
