Folk me...it's Moseley Folk!
Moseley Folk Festival 2013 from Old Dead Eye on Vimeo.
Woah! Where did the summer go eh? How the hell can it be Moseley Folk Festival already? I know I bang on about this every year but I swear someone's stealing days here and there. One minute you're stuffing your face with Easter eggs, the next you're hanging stockings on your bedpost and necking a pint of 'egg nog.' Just me? Oh...right. Anyway once again the line up plays fast and loose with the folk definition at times and it's all the better for it with Friday night being headlined by none other than Johnny Marr (following a set from Mr Sonic Youth himself Thurston Moore). Saturday sees arguably one of the greatest folk musicians in the world, Richard Thompson, take to the stage. And Sunday things clatter gloriously to an end with The Waterboys. The last few tickets usually sell out today so if you want to go snap 'em up today. As is traditional here are a few highlights to whet your whistles...and any other part of your anatomy for that matter.
