The ninth Edgworth Folk Festival went down a storm at the weekend.

The event was held at The Barlow from Friday to Sunday when visitors could hear acts performing at various times.

Festival goers were able to attend afternoon concerts on Saturday and Sunday, with evening performances held after 7.30pm on Friday and Saturday.

The event, run in connection with the Bromley Cross Folk Club, hosted a variety of acts such as Close Quarters, Bandersnatch, and Anthony John Clarke.

One of the performers, The Matilda Trio, were brought together after the birth of baby Matilda four years ago.

They are an a cappella group who specialise in folk and world music, and consist of Eleanor Hill, Kate Rothwell, and Moira Hill. Matilda’s mother, godmother, and grandmother respectively.

Workshops for dance, song, and dialect were available on Saturday morning, with song, tune and ukelele sessions taking place on Sunday morning.

The folk club encourages the attendance of young people, and weekend tickets for the festival were free for under-13s, and half price for students aged 13-21 to reflect that.

All adults, including senior citizens, paid a flat rate.

All proceeds from the festival go towards the upkeep of The Barlow, a key part of Edgworth for over 100 years.

The centre is currently in desperate need of repairs to the roof to keep the building running.

Acts for the festival are placed on a list at the recommendation of committee members for the club and regulars who attend singers' and guest nights.

After that, the committee will vote on the list and contact the most popular artists or groups to perform.

The club’s next event will be a performance by Edinburgh band, Wayward Jane. The band plays a mix of country, old time banjo, and blue grass grooves with fiddle, double bass, and wooden flute.

MALpractice, an American-inspired folk band known for their singalong opportunities, will be supporting the group for their performance next Friday, October 18.
