The Return of Tranklements. Tranklements was one of the first groups I booked for the Folk Train and after much badgering Tony Canning resurrected the group. Unfortunately, I was ill so couldn't be there!

Treebeard

With less emphasis on funny hats this time the musicianship shone through and I felt that Treebeard were better than ever. I'm sure that no-one went away disappointed.

The Little Bigfoot Band always gives good value. An entertaining mix of gimmick-free musicianship and song.

Silverwheel is an outstanding new line-up, fronted by Sue Cain - a vocal discovery who stands comparison to Sandy Denny or Maddy Prior.

CeilidhSoc lived up to their billing - a group of excellent young  musicians who kept us enthralled by pure and simple talent.

Wow! What an evening! A packed train and fine weather. The New Orleans Strollers brought their new singer and several guest performers to add to the occasion.

Another well attended outing with new band Skyhook. It's really rewarding for me when high quality, serious folk music receives such acclaim from a Folk Train audience but it was absolutely deserved.

Bernard Cromarty once again demonstrated his instrumental and dynamic range, from his raucous
parody of Allouette to a softly rendered reconstruction of Wild Mountain Thyme.

First time on the Folk Train for Scuppered, who provided us with an evening worthy of the festive season. i.e. exactly as billed! (Funny though - they seemed somewhat familiar!)
