Shrewsbury Folk Festival is one of my favourite festivals on the UK folk circuit as it is consistently excellent. It is one of the most well-organised events I have came across in the past couple of years and this does not only apply to the music and sound quality, but also to how it is run. The volunteer stewards take pride in doing a great job and tend to return year after year. The festival veterans pass on their knowledge to new volunteers who are welcomed and seamlessly integrated. The minute I walked through the gates on Thursday afternoon I saw a few friendly faces who I had also seen the year before and the year before that. Another bonus is its location walking distance to the town of Shrewsbury, which is well worth exploring and has plenty of history, architecture, charity shops and pubs to keep you busy for an afternoon or two.
