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.

Isembard's Wheel
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
Cocklebread
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 appreciation.

Scuppered
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!
