The following for folk music is growing and its starting to become fashionable again. Weve got quite an impressive line-up for our first event and are currently in talks with other bands and musicians for our next one.

Apologies for featuring a 'football' club who are rapidly sinking back toward non-league status.  We hope it didn't upset anyone of a delicate disposition.
