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
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.
