This years Shrewsbury Folk Festival takes place from Friday 26th August until 29th August (Bank Holiday Weekend) at the West Midlands Show Ground, and this year there looks to be a brilliant line-up. I’m a big fan of the Imagined Village, Show of Hands, Bellowhead and Blackbeards Tea Party, who are all appearing during the weekend
