Chippenham Folk Festival 26-27th May
This year we broke the custom of getting soaked at Chippenham, and the weather was beautiful. The festival was marvelous and we all had a great time.
We were re-joined by Adam and Rachel, together with babe Ruth, who was born just after last year's festival. Gill joined the band and her daughter Esther served as official photographer to the side.
Performers this weekend were Adam, Anne, Chris, Colin, Dave K, Gill, Ian F, Ian O, Jennie, Jill, Jim J, Jim M, Liz, Lynne, Mike S, Rachel, Roger, Ruth and Vera.

festival this weekend (we doubt he did anything to honour
us - and perhaps we ought to be grateful).
