Without a doubt, The Charles Wells Cambridge Folk Festival is now the most cosmopolitan festival still running in the UK. This year's was the 33rd, a number you don't reach without seriously good organisation. One of the most pleasing things about Cambridge is the audience. Young and old mix quite happily. Family man and crustie are both there looking to enjoy themselves. Musically there is a cacophony of styles, folk, roots rock, Cajun, bluegrass, blues, comedy to name but a few. The Cambridge Folk Festival constantly looks for ways of improving it's self. This year facilities for the disabled, in the guise of easy access viewing areas, were improved. On the family side a crèche and play area were added to complement the permanent paddling pool that adjoins the site. Though the weather dictated that Cambridge's famous moving stage stayed inside the whole festival, 33 showed that Cambridge continues to move from strength to strength. As per normal, we had a crew on site to bring you the highlights. Click and enjoy.
