Ely Folk Weekend 2005 Is Here!

Ely Onliners of the past few years may have seen my dodgy reviews [2000/02/03/04] of previous Folk Weekends. This year will be no different. From today (Friday 8th) to Sunday 10th of July, myself and the Ed will be found down at the site on Downham Road taking in the music, atmosphere and, hopefully, the sun. And, as I’ve mentioned in previous reviews, they’re gradually drawing me in to their world of beards, hats and colourful trousers. I’ve even been down to the Folk Club at the Maltings twice now. It’s good stuff.

So, if you’re new to Ely (and Ely Online) read some of the old reviews, check out the Ely Folk Weekend website and give it a try. During the weekend we have Boo Hewerdine, Last Night’s Fun, Steve Tilston and many others to look forward to. Open your ears and let the uilleann pipes in. Mine’s a pint of Dragon Slayer – see you there.

Last year’s review can be found here.
