Cambridge Folk Festival…a delight of a reviewing weekend

leave a comment »

Well, I’m back from what can only be described as a weekend of reviewing the best festival I’ve ever had the pleasure of being invited to – the 2010 Co-operative Cambridge Folk Festival.

This being my maiden voyage to the award-winning and highly respected Cambridge institution; I had an idea in mind of what I might expect to greet me there, but I can honestly say that all my expectations were exceeded over the course of the 3.5 day extravaganza.

I am just in the process of writing up my full review, complete with some great photographs, for www.efestivals.co.uk and I will post the link up here too.  In the meantime though, I leave you with a selection of my favourite artists from the weekend: Seth Lakeman, Johnny Flynn and the Sussex Wit, Cocos Lovers, Stornoway, Sharon Shannon and Imelda May and Salsa Celtica. It really was difficult to choose from all the exciting performances I managed to see; they each brought something different to the table, but all captured the true essence of folk; spirit-rousing, foot-tapping, heart-thumping performances that left the crowd shouting for more and left the atmosphere buzzing.

Enjoy and please visit back here for the link to the full review…
