1999 Scrapbook
Swanage Folk Festival

This was OBJ's third appearance at Swanage Folk Festival, which for us marks the end of the dancing season.

The highlight of Swanage Folk Festival was probably the dancing on the train at Swanage Railway, or the midnight paddling. We're looking for photographic evidence.

Shadows lengthen as we dance Sheepskins on the sea front. Probably the most popular, and the most parent-worrying dance we did that day.

What is Colin supporting?

Why is Jim J offering Nikki the melodian?

Did Nikki spill all that water?

Who knows? Who cares?
