A longstanding favourite Folk Train performers and
they always satisfy us with their quality and
style. As usual, we can expect from them
some highly entertaining Folk-Americana - string
band music from the Appalachian Mountains with
some fine harmony singing
Strings and Reeds Another
return for Clare, Brian and Phil who play
Scottish, Irish and English music for dancing -
if there's room in the aisle! - on button
accordion, piano accordion and fiddle,
interspersed with some fine vocals..
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.

(Date decided to be 29th) 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.
