Song of the day:
"Escape From Death Valley"
Folk On The Lawn 2013 finally gets underway at 8pm tonight with Gaudy Orde, Platform 1 and - in a last-minute change to the schedule - Seren "The Heron" Thomas. We hope to see you there!
Unfortunately Jim Godfrey & Ralph Burden have had to pull out. But we're pleased to say we have the wonderful Stephen Light stepping in on Saturday to take their place!
Please also note that Newport Folk Club will no longer be hosting a sing-a-round at The Anchor as originally planned on the Friday and Saturday evenings, though they will still be taking over the Bar Stage at FOTL at various points over the weekend!
In other news, there will be a mini ale/cider festival during FOTL 2013, with a dedicated drinks tent selling 5 ales and 5 ciders... please drink responsibly!
What to expect at Folk on the Lawn
See here for the line-up for this year's festival.
As well as the "official" music line-up, on the Saturday night you're encouraged to bring yourselves (and your voices and instruments) along to the Rose & Crown, just down the road from the festival site, which will be hosting an open stage.
And as if all that isn't enough, there will also be plenty of other attractions to keep both young and old entertained. We have stalls from Harper's Bizarre (crochet festival ponchos, quality second hand and boho hippy things); Puppetfolk (puppet-making workshop); and Spray Art Tattoos (safe, temporary tattoos for adults and children). There will also be face painting for the children (and young-at-heart adults!)
