Our old friends Down Trodden String Band gave us a great evening, as always. No representatives from Well Heeled Appalachian Dancers this time but that gave us more opportunity to concentrate on the remarkable musicianship and harmonious voices.

The Keltones made their first appearence and put on a great show. Drummer Dave lives at Grindleford and travelling home one evening, he found himself on the Folk Train. Realising what a great night out it was he offered the services of The Keltones - and aren't we glad he did!

Once again, Bernard Cromarty demonstrated his ability to captivate the Folk Train audience single handed. He grabbed the attention of our sometimes boisterous audience right from the start.

With the Folk and Blue Grass Music Soc, who brought along The Mother Folkers, we had two bands for the price of one - three if you include solo singer Sam - and a huge audience.

More Mobile Music for Malcolm. The group of excellent Sheffield folk performers, put together by our good friend Dave Young, donated all the proceeds to the same charities - mainly MacMillan Nurses - that benefited from our Mobile Music for Malcolm event last October

I've lost count of how often Sheffield City Morris Men have appeared on the Folk Train - every June for some years - but it's an indulgence on my part, being a member of the group!

BellaRoots first appeared on the Folk Train as m_c_cajun in July 1999 and have always put on a great show, this one being no exception.

Not a balmy summer evening and, although it kept fine, al fresco proved a little too chilly as the evening wore on and The New Orleans Strollers retreated to the pub. Nevertheless, a fantastic evening was had by all.

With the start of the University term we had a packed  house! Crazy Crow were also up in numbers with my old pal Mike Lydiat added on guitar and Wyn as guest bodhran player.

Despite not being able to turn out as big a line-up as usual, Wholesome Fish put on a great show. We even had a short interlude al fresco, for those who couldn't get near the band inside the pub.

I wasn't there for Jack's Rake second appearance on the Folk Train but judging by their first, it must have been a great evening.

I made a Newsletter appeal for pictures but the response was disappointing. Thanks to Trevor Seiles for these.

Our good friends Scuppered  did us proud again.

We had a bit of an adventure on the return journey. The train came to a screeching halt just after  Totley tunnel. The signal ahead had changed from green to red as we approached - not a thing that's supposed to happen.
