Moseley Folk Festival, 2014

I managed a couple of days at the Moseley Folk festival (couldn’t make the Friday night – which had Johnny Marr headlining). I’m not going to do much of a write-up for this – you can read Daron Billings’ report (and see Wayne’s photos) on the GigJunkies report .

It’s a couple of years since I’ve been to the festival, and it’s turning into a more eclectic event, with some really innovative music at the edge of (and probably beyond) the traditional (hah) definitions of “Folk”.

Arc Iris and Stealing Sheep (in particular) are creating some really original music, while Lau, The Felice Brothers and Lisa Knapp are all innovating from inside the conventions of the tradition.

It’s maybe worth an aside that there was a lot of slide guitar (and – more unusually – steel guitar) around at the festival. From Chickenbone John …
