National folk festival 2015
Hmm I searched for national folk festival 2015 .. but it’s not here.
I actually went to it .. and yes it wasn’t there either.
I camped there .. and there was more folk music outside the heavily-policed gates than inside of it.
Their logo was “5 days in a perfect world” ..well perv-ect for goons and renta-cops I suppose.
The session venue was OK I suppose, but not much better than sessions at your local.
The performers were excellent up on their stages.
But I pause to ask .. folk? I was once a rock’n’roll guy - this looks like pop to me.
Folk has to count for something. In search of folk I sat with the Transylvanian guys in the camp .. those guys never stop playing .. that’s folk.
Folk? maybe pop ..
Festival? Nah - “commercial pop-concert” .
I left early and won’t be going back.
I don’t think there are any “folk” there. And I, for one, prefer real people. Folk not punters.
