Folkstock 2013

Myself and Kris are playing Folkstock Acoustic Festival on 21st Sept at Aldenham Country Park, Elstree, Herts WD6 3BA.

Helen Meissner, the organiser sent me this stuff for your perusal including a NEWSLETTER and they have a Soundcloud Festival Selection on the go too.

WHY ?Folkstock Acoustic Festival was borne out of a desire to showcase as many strands of acoustic, folk and roots music in one joyous event on the autumn equinox, which is September 21st 2013. We aim to promote artists to the public and the music industry and offer a credible showcase for recently signed or emerging folk, roots and acoustic acts as well as a vehicle for entertaining the community via live music and associated activities to aid creativity and self expression.  You are assured of catchy and beguiling songs, harmonies to melt into and stunning lyrics. All performed to virtuoso level with inspiring dedication.

Folkstock will be an affordable, family friendly festival with a fete feel, incorporating two main stages and two tented stages, a Village Green area, an amplified busking zone, song writing and ukulele workshops and sessions in the bar. It will have internationally respected performers alongside emerging local acts as well as old fashioned fete stalls, ceilidhs, morris dancing, arts and crafts in a friendly supportive environment.

There are areas dedicated to specialist interests such as local breweries and real ale, foodie treats, a vintage tea room and pop up street vendors who cook to order, champions of organic and sustainable living as well as activities for children of all ages ! All the profits will be divided between Cancer Research UK and the Folkstock Arts Foundation (which has Dave Swarbrick as it’s Patron).

Come and join in the fun !
