Reviews of the festival are welcome and can be emailed to the committee member of your choice on the contacts page.

We would also welcome material or copy that would aid us in compiling a more detailed history of the festival especially events prior 2002. It is known that there are many folkies and performers that attended those earlier  years that are still involved in the industry.
