The Cambridge Folk Festival, Cambridge - 27th July 2007

Nosher's a bit vague about stuff, and so by the time it came to actually get a ticket, most of them had sold out leaving only a Friday night session. Which was fair enough, as having never been before it was good to try a small "taster" of the event before committing to the whole four-day thrash. The Folk Fest does have a good, hippy-ish vibe, but with three stages there's not always tons of music going on. However, being "folky" means that the bars do have a good range of real ale (rather than the usual shite festival Carling), and so it's almost like a music/beer-fest rolled-in-to-one combo. Cool. Just before turning up at the fest, Nosher had also met up with old college chum Liz, and her husband Paul, having not really seen Liz for twenty years (apart from 30 seconds in Safeway, New Milton about seven years back).
