Thread Name: Saltburn folk festival 2019
Subject: RE: Saltburn folk festival 2019
Ken did a fantastic job, as did those who supported him (including wife Mariane), the MCs, stewards etc. The festival was intended as a celebration of John Taylor's life and work in establishing and running he festival (and many other things folk, besides)and was certainly a worthy tribute to him.

We had a great festival from the Thursday 'pre-meet' hosted by the Cutty Wren in the Marine Hotel through to the final sing around on Sunday evening. Some great singers, singing and songs at both those and other events.

In between, some great concerts, meet the artist events etc. Hard to pick favourites, although Bill Adair, Beth Burrows, Marie Little (as ever!) come immediately to mind.

We understand that a new website will 'go live' in December with any details for Saltbnrun 2020 ff released then.
