Bermondsey Folk festival 2018

I had an amazing time organising the Bermondsey Folk festival again. Firstly I would like to say that it would have been impossible without being in partnership with Bermondsey’s best fishmonger, Russell Dryden.  You can read a bit about him here.

More big thank yous have to go to Pedro and to the pubs and local businesses who got involved- in particular Rob from Shortwave Cafe.

The festival is associated with our monthly Bermondsey Folk singaround. If you would like to be part of it, details are here.

Although rain was promised, it stayed fine all day. The main stage in the Blue Market was packed out for Circulus, Lisa Knapp and Martin Carthy.

Ady Johnson, David Jaycock, RussmanRussman and Cunning Folk as well as The Embers Band (pictured) played at Shortwave…


We also had the pleasure of Arfur Doo and the Toe Rags, Bermondsey Voices Choir who sang about magpies, traditional Irish and English dancing and a guided walk of Bermondsey with comedian Arthur Smith!

Can’t wait for 2019- watch this space!
