Rachel - I know wwe weren't planning on going this year but.... Oysterband.... ?
What happened to Fish???
Going to be some frantic tabbing between the Festival and The Fringe over those three days I can tell ye! 😀
Had Fish pulled out?
No Pierce Brothers, I could cry!!
Brilliant, brilliant line up.
Rubbish line up.
Won't be going this year ... first time in 20 years, but last year's lineup wasn't that great and this one is worse. Last year was saved by Dougie McLean ... but not even the Oyster band will be enough to get us there
All the best for the August bash !!!
Rebecca Helen Drennan look Kate Rusby
To all the moaners, can't please everyone all the time. Loved last year, not sure I can make it this year, enjoy folks xx
I am really unsure what people want from this festival ! Huge bands - no thanks , skilled artisans yes please , a range of music yes . Just could do without Fish tbh
Great to see The Travelling Band back
Christopher you coming? 🕺
Looks like a great assortment of artists, can't wait to see The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican. Great to see people we've not heard of before. If we hadn't gone last year we wouldn't have gone to see Cats in Space later in the year. So enjoy the craic and atmosphere, I know we will 😁
love Kate Rusby and Digance and of course Fairport
Could I just say that this is a fantastic line up in my opinion. You just can't please some people!
