EDALE FOLK FESTIVAL
The Edale Folk Festival takes place this year on 10-12 May. One of the principal performers is North Derbyshire's folk star Bella Hardy, famous for her appearance at the BBC Proms - the Folk Prom - a couple of years ago. Bella made an appearance in The Guardian's Saturday Travel section recently, in a piece entitled "A musical adventure in the Peak District" in which she spoke about the Edale Folk Festival - and the Folk train!
See the Guardian report.
The Festival promises a jam-packed programme of live music, workshops for up and coming musicians and plenty of opportunity to join in at the sessions and open mics. at various local venues.
