We are once again heading off to Purbeck Valley Folk Festival which is on a new site this year. The line-up is staggeringly brilliant, from the well established and familiar names such as headliners Richard Thompson and Hot Rize to the new and up and coming. Purbeck have a great reputation for championing new artists so it’s great to see artists like Gareth and Annie and Tom McQ, who played open mic stages last year, on the bill this year. Catherine and Paul who run the festival are both musicians and in bands, in fact you’ll see Catherine in several over the course of the festival. They do a great job every year, but I have a feeling this year is going to be very special.
For anyone who hasn’t been before, it’s a great family festival with plenty for the young and young at heart to do. It’s pretty magical.
Anyway, we can’t wait, so here is just a small taster of what’s on offer.
