Great old clip, and Loudon Wainwright III - saw him a bit later there about 3 years ago

Thank you! This was my first Cam FF

Fascinating film! Interesting that the average age looks to be in the 20s - bit different now with most drawing their pension, probably the same people!

We're you there in 1974 Rusty Wright?

Loving the canvas tents and lack of chairs


If they think it was packed then, what would they make of it now! ๐Ÿ˜€

Sarah Lyster show this to dad

If you go on YouTube youโ€™ll see the full 53 minute version! Amazing stuff๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

Diane Hudspith

Look at the lack of chairs! ๐Ÿ˜€

This was my first Cambridge Folk Festival, always a wonderful atmosphere then. It got too big a while ago, and I've not been for about 12 years now.

Scary how young we all looked then!


Arlo Guthrie! Loudon Wainwright! I was a fan then. And still a fan now. Still going to Cambridge. Yeah. โ˜บ๏ธ

The age range was so much lower then ..performers and festival goers. Hardly looks like anyone over 25 or 30 ! Lots more hair then

I think that was my 2nd year of going. Been to most since though not for a few years now. Next year ...

That's great. Love the Planxty footage ( short and very sweet) and the Arlo interview especially

Recognise anyone Andrew Kendon Claire Kendon Lizz Kendon

Craig Hatfield Donaldo Donaldo Dave Bealt Gill Bealt Samantha Megan Patrick O'Flaherty this is amusing (Arlo Guthrie interviewed towards end Craig)

Good move. Be great if he bring us the likes of Laura Marling and Ben Howard.

Cathal might have to add Cambridge to next years summer!

Seems like a good solid choice to me. He clearly has an expansive taste in music and Iโ€™ll be very interested to see and hear his choices๐Ÿ‘

So excited with this choice! Nick is amazing ๐Ÿ˜

Heard it from the man himself this evening at the Corn Exchange! Brilliant concert, looking forward to his choice of artists

Yes, he was on good form tonight at the Corn Exchange. Last saw him at the folk festival

Great two-set gig tonight! Looking forward to hearing his choices for the Festival.

That might just have persuaded me to come again next year!

Nick who?
