From: Banjiman
Date: 22 Jun 09 - 06:11 AM

A new festival (and absolutely nothing to do with the ill fated Pickering Folk Festival!) except being near by.

Acts confirmed so far include: Wendy Arrowsmith - The Arrowsmiths & Joolz Cavell - Roscoe La Belle - Brother Crow - Graham Brotton - Emma Forman - Richard Grainger & The Darklands Band - Shirley Higton - Landermason - Kim Ralls - Stormcrow - Ethan Thomas- Penni Maclaren Walker

I would expect there will be plenty of informal singarounds and sessions as well.

Just £20 + £5 camping for the weekend!

Details here: Cropton Folk & Roots 2009

Apparently camping is in the Orchard, which sounds extremely pleasant!

Anyone fancy it?

Folk festivals in breweries seem like a growing (and very welcome) trend. We're also going to the Moonbeams Wold Top Festival in July at the Wold Top Brewery near Wold Newton in (you guessed it) the Yorkshire Wolds.

They also have a more "rocky" music festival in that pub in November (lots of bikers) - we went there for my birthday last year so it must be around Nov. 26th. Maybe it was me and Ossonflags doing a spot on the stage there last year that inspired this folky version!

:-)

It is the home of the Cropton Brewery and they also do good food and have nice accommodation.

Hi Guys, the folk festival is actually AT the brewery...and the beer is great...

...I'm on sorting a quick website out for Richard Grainger (who is organising the festival), and for the moment, we are using the old Roots North website for the hosting.

You can find it at:

http://www.rootsnorth.co.uk

Not much there at the moment, but keep checking back...

Hope this helps,
Graeme,
Brother Crow.

Good stuff Soldier Boy. It will be good to meet you. Just look out for The Levellers flag and luxury caravan and I'm sure we won't be far away (our daughters will insist!).

I think it has the makings of a good little festival.



"Whose putting pressure on the sheep?" I've been told that gentle persuasion is a better approach! Sorry you won't make it Barry (but will the sheep be relieved?).

Muppett,

I've no idea, it was the only one I could find. I'm merely a minor performer at the festival, not an organiser and I definitely deny any responsibility for rural bus services in Yorkshire!

There is text on there that suggests that there is a service for the rest of the week. I think there's a phone number as well, why not give them a ring?

Hopefully see you there.

No, keep this one going Paul.

It seems that word about this festival is spreading like wild-fire.
It was on the lips of many of my folkie friends at Saddleworth FF recently and also at Durham last weekend and it sounds like many at Hardraw were suggesting it to friends.

So like a rolling stone gathering moss, word is getting out and it's picking up momentum. So don't dally people.

Get on the "Cropton Folk and Roots Festival 2009" web site and book yer tickets.

Only £26 for the whole weekend,including concerts,camping and booking fee.
Now that's what I call really good value for money!

Just to remind ya. It's on 7-9 August 2009 (only 1 week and 3 days away). It is set in the beautiful grounds and pub of The Cropton Brewery (smashing range of real ales and food),a few miles west of Pickering,North Yorkshire.

There is a very good line up of artists (check website for full details)and the large rambling brewery pub will be pulsating with excellent singarounds and musician playarounds.

This is a new Festival and from what I know about the number and sheer quality of people who have said they are going to it, it's going to be a little cracker which I am really looking forward to.

Just one question from people in the know. Is the pub hosting this festival called 'The Cropton Brewery' or does it have another name?
I called at the pub a few years ago on me way back from Whitby Moor & Cost Festival and thought it was called ''The Cropton Arms' or something. So can someone please clarify so we all know what to look out for. Many thanks.

Get yer tickets booked and I'll see ya there folkie friends.

If there are going to be singarounds or whatever taking place in the pub itself, I hope they'll relax their rule about not letting children in anywhere except the conservatory because Hols wants to sing a song with us.

Yup. And we've just added air-conditioning, thanks to a sharp stone wall at Hardraw. Hope it holds together until the end of the festival season.

Thanks theleveller and Banjiman for letting me know the pub is called "The New Inn"".

Now just two more questions for you so that all coming to this festival are in the know :

Is The New Inn pub in the same grounds as the Cropton Brewery and therefore an integral part of the festival? Sorry if I sound a bit dim on this point but it's not clear from the website or previous postings here.

And if The New Inn is an intregal part of the festival, will it welcome and be the host for, singarounds and musician playarounds all over the weekend?

I hope you can answer in the affirmative because on my last and only visit to this fine hostelry it looked to be a large rambling pub with plenty of space to accomodate all kinds of sessions.
At least that is how I recall it ,but memory is getting somewhat addled these days!

Also, it was obviously a popular eating venue, so could the dining experience interfere with or prevent good sessions getting going in the venue? Sorry. That's three questions!!
Many thanks.

Chris

Hi SB.

The Brewery & The New Inn are pretty much all one according to their website .

I don't know what the set up is for sessions only the promise that there will be some.

There is a contact email on the website (link somewhere above). Why not drop the Grainger's (Richard and Jeanette) who are organising the fest and then post on here to let us all know! I would have to do the same thing thing to find out.

See you there.
