Sheffield City Morris
once again, Sheffield
City Morris and their guest
performers are the heralds of summer,
bringing us their world famous and
entertaining mix of music, song and
dance, well suited to an al fresco
performance on a balmy summer evening.
Fingers crossed for decent weather, in
view of last year's problem!

Feet First As long as the
weather is good we can welcome the return
again of the outstanding Feet First
Appalachian clog dancers, based in Chesterfield.
In recent years they have given us admirable al
fresco performances, along with some
excellent musical sessions on the train.

Treebeard Once again we have the
group which was our regular favourites for some
time. In agreement with their on-line
description I can say that they perform “a
clever blend of originals & cover material,
made all the more enjoyable by the friendly and
fun loving attitude on stage”.

Yorkshire Tea Bags Skiffle Band Last time we were very
grateful that they had recovered from an awkward
situation they had suffered previously and had
been able to restore themselves to being ready
for selection, so we can be grateful again. I
can say without doubt that you will be really
appreciative and very responsive when the band
encourages your participation.

A second appearance for a folk band based in
Sheffield, comprising an eclectic cast of
wayfarers and bohemians collected in the years
since the band was begun in 2013 by Alexander
Isembard. They have partaken on festival stages,
released an EP called Autumn in Eden, and
aim to take their act even further afield.
28 November 2017
They make a further appearance on the Folk Train,
again for a charity purpose. As before, the money
which would normally go to the band, will be
presented to the charity collectors, previously
having been well summed.
They comprise a group of musicians, from
Sheffield Hallam University, who specialise in
charity appearances to greatly deserved

These Folk Train old timers have taken on the
Festive Season Folk Train on a number of previous
occasions and have always been of great value.
Once again they wil perform material from a wide
range of sources, traditional folk, 60's pop,
contemporary folk, Country and Scottish Dance.
Don't forget, they're probably the best Coal Aston
based band in the World!
