I have praised it before, but one effect of Spotify’s Discover Weekly algorithm is to confirm one’s impeccable taste #JustSaying

We thought about going to the Great British Folk Festival in Skegness again as St Agnes Fountain headlined. Instead, we booked a series of local concerts:

Show of Hands supported by Kirsty Merryn, Canterbury
Cara Dillon, Canterbury
Eliza Carthy and The Wayward Band, Ashford https://www.elizawayward.com/
St Agnes Fountain, Canterbury Cathedral Lodge
Albion Christmas Band, Canterbury

We have booked the Folk in the Barn 15th Anniversary celebration concert on 7 April 2018 with Show of Hands Duo.

A lovely end to the year of 2017.
