not folk music fan but persuaded to go by some friends. the event is very well organised and the site is good. Gretchen Peters was very good and Rciahard Thompson was good.
No issues with food or drink on site and it is an easy walk into Shrewsbury

The whole event has excellent quality and variety of music and is very well organised and accessible. This made the weekend enjoyable and comfortable. We bought tickets for the 3 days and camped and will keep going back.

Felt the overall musical standard/calibre of bands fell well short of last two years though still enjoyed this friendly and well organised festival. Would have liked to have listened to more contemporary folk and Americana. From a personal point of view Gretchen Peters and her fabulous backing band stood head and shoulders above all other acts.

The good news is that this year they've reorganised the campsite, so spaces are much easier to find. Added to this, the line-up was an absolute dream, with something for everyone. Folk is a broad church and not easily defined: it can include unaccompanied traditional songs to raucous electric jazz. This festival had all that, and everything in between.
Outstanding performances in a glittering playlist included veteran band Show of Hands, even more veteran electric folk innovators Steeleye Span, Irish traditionalist Daori Farrell, jock-rockers Skerryvore, wonderful Gretchen Peters and young, incredibly talented musicians Na Leani. A moving and heartfelt set was delivered by The Passerine, a band of women refugees and migrants led by established duo O'Hooley and Tidow, and Scots band Shooglenifty combined with Indian drummers and singers Dhun Dhora - magical!
Lots more to enjoy, including the indefinable Shrewsbury vibe, which makes everybody relaxed, friendly and happy. Any negatives? Well, I wondered what Steve Harley was doing at a folk festival - the church isn't that broad, surely? - and the Tuneworks sessions have vastly outgrown the beer tent, leaving no room for thirsty punters at times. But that's all. Apart from the fact that the festival should last a week and be available on the NHS as a sure cure for depression.
