Oakengates Folk ‘n’ Ale Day

Hat tip to Sally Stamford for pointing this out: mini Folk Music Festival at the Crown Inn, Market Street, Oakengates, TF2 6EA, on Saturday 20th September 2014.

I note that there is a weekly acoustic session at the Crown, and another at the Old Fighting Cocks across the road, both on a Wednesday. Sorry, it’s a bit far out from here to go and check them out.

May musical events: Unicorns, Trackies, and Grey Wolves

This isn’t really an events tracking page: I don’t want to offer anything like that until I have the time to keep it updated properly. However, I can’t ignore these and may well be at all three. I hope that doesn’t put you off.

There’s an excellent folk session on the first Friday of every month at the Unicorn, in Corve Street Ludlow. The next one is on the 2nd May, 2014.

On Saturday May 10th 2014, Folk Down The Track (a gathering of folkies who mostly seem to find their way over from Shrewsbury to Knucklas, though I sometimes wander over there myself) and Folk Up The Track (apparently based in Llanelli, though I can’t find a web site for it*) will be meeting at the Llanerch Inn, opposite  Llandrindod Wells Railway Station, for ‘a FREE fun day of acoustic music from mid- day’. Travel arrangements as detailed on the flyer I have:

Northbound train departs Llanelli at 09.34, arriving in Llandrindod at 11.35. Last train to Lla- nelli/Swansea departs at 19.35, arriving in Llanelli at 21.40.
Southbound train departs Shrewsbury at 09.00, arriv- ing in Llandrindod at 10.29. Last train back to Shrewsbury departs at 20.40, arriving at 22.08.
Special rates on accommodation are available for those who wish to stay overnight at the Llanerch Inn, call 01597 822234 for more information.

Here’s an event right in my backyard, as it were. The Parkway, just off Corve Street in Ludlow, frequently puts on blues/folk events with the likes of Will Killeen (a frequent guest when I used to run folk clubs in London), and on Sunday the 11th of May is putting on a special event with buskers jamming from midday on (yes, I may be there, though busking isn’t really my thing) and with the very excellent Grey Wolf (accomplished purveyors of Americana) playing a set in the evening.

Here are a couple of pages that offer a wider spread of information for events in this area and beyond:
