Subject: Pignews: 2012 Folk Ale


Booking is now open for the 2012 Folk Ale.

The full programme will be published shortly, but as well as all the usual sessions, singarounds etc., the highlights are:

Thursday 7th June, Markbeech Village Hall
Ceilidh with Round House Folk

Friday 8th June, Marquee
Concert with PHIL BEER, supported by local duo GREG MCDONALD & GEMMA GAYNER and our own LYNDSEY RULE

Saturday 9th June, Marquee
"Fruitful Harvest": official launch of the new album by THE TY WATLING BAND

"Friends of the Folk Ale": all day concert rounded off in fine style by SALLY IRONMONGER and local folk-rockers, FATE THE JUGGLER

Sunday 10th June:
The traditional Sunday afternoon comedy spot is taken by the man who started the tradition - the inimitable DOUG HUDSON

And bringing things to a rousing finale, we have HOT RATS.

We hope you will be able to join us.

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to Keith and Lyndsey who have put this fantastic line-up together and are working hard behind the scenes, and also to all those who have offered their help in running the festival. Without this support, it just wouldn't be happening this year.

Sue Rule
