Folk Festival going is a 12 months of the year experience. English Dance & Song magazine has published its annual listing of Folk Festivals in 2015 in the Winter 2014 issue. It is also available on the EFDSS website.
Editor of English Dance & Song magazine, and compiler of the annual list, Derek Schofield said, “The Festival experience is how many people now enjoy their folk music and dance. There’s a tremendous variety in the size and style of festivals – some take place in cities and towns while others are based in villages or green-field sites. Some have well-known headline performers, while others are much more grassroots and participative. Festivals can feature a broad range of artists and musical and dance styles, while others specialise in a particular music or dance style. They take place 12 months of the years.”
