laid back atmosphere…”
Purbeck Folk Festival is in its fifth year, with a great Lineup again; impressively the headliner on Sunday is BBC Folk Award winners Show of Hands.
Credit to the organisers and Festival director Paul Burke, who also runs the
Bournemouth Folk Club. Playing there next month with Westcountry Songwriters Circle on 29 September.
Nice touch this year as local residents (BH19 postcodes) can come and enjoy the festival for FREE on Friday 23 August.
That would be at the bottom of my garden then!
Other than the Purbeck Folk Festival, there are also a few other music events I like to perform at on The Isle of Purbeck, such as the Square and Compass, Bankes Arms Beer and Music Festival in Studland, The Ship Inn in Langton Matravers for my neighbours and The Black Swan in Swanage.
Purbeck Folk Festival covers the broader definition of folk music and you can hear the music from all around the world. There’s something for everyone! The festival gives the young finalists from Radio 2’s young folk awards a chance to play, internationally known artists and the best of Dorset’s local music scene.
