We enjoyed The Strawbs, Lindisfarne, Ralph Mactell and Julie Felix at the Great British Folk Festival in Skegness as well as an array of young talent too. I love the links your book makes too as often we see artists who have played ‘ backing up’ many of those old favourites.

I'd like to hear from you...
