Moseley Folk Festival 2013

Moseley Folk Festival is a little festival in the heart of Birmingham, and a couple of weeks ago, as a new Brummie resident, I went along to check it out.

The festival is in its eighth year and, as the organisers say it is an eclectic mix of “traditional, contemporary and experimental folk and acoustic music”. It is set in Moseley Park, and is only a hop, skip and a jump from where I live. It’s pretty small affair as far as festivals go with about 2000 people attending.

Now, I’m not really sure what makes folk folk, and I wasn’t even that sure that I liked folk music before I went, but off I went with an open mind, a picnic rug, some tasty treats, some suncream and a few friends and we had a great time.

Oh, and I’m not too sure how to use my new camera, so excuse the over exposed pictures. As soon as I get a chance i’ll read the manual and figure out what i’m doing wrong.
