Cambridge Folk Festival on 2-5 August 2018

A new venture for this years Cambridge Folk Festival- the English Traditional Folk Song sessions (organised by Tim Mellor)- saw us combining each day with other members of Blackfen Folk Club (and on the Sunday, with Sound Tradition from the Bury Folk Collective) to sing English folk songs and encouraging the lost art (at least in the southern half of the country) of group singing. We had to learn some new songs with good choruses, and the open-air sessions in the Flower Gardens attracted decent audiences who enjoyed joining in. It would be brilliant if this became an integral feature of the festival in coming years.
