Warwick Folk Festival 2022 in Warwick Castle Park

I was delighted to visit the Warwick Folk Festival in July 2022 both as a singer with the Folk Festival Choir, and as an author, searching for special musicians, singers and dancers, and that one perfect photo to include in my forthcoming book ‘A-Z of Warwick’.

The Folk Festival Choir conducted by Bruce Knight were onstage at 2pm. The audience enjoyed our set of folk songs from around the world, especially ‘All Around My Hat’ from England, ‘Mandela Says Freedom Now’ from Africa, and ‘Roll the Woodpile Down’ from the Mississippi River.

We loved a wonderful folk duo who came onstage after the choir. Bryony Griffith is a fiddler and singer, and her husband and partner Will Hampson is a melodeon player and dancer. Bryony Griffith and Will Hampson are both gifted interpreters of English folk music, and were special guests on the Jester Stage. I plan to feature them in my book.

Here are a few pictures to give a flavour of the festival.
