The Travelling Folk


The Travelling Folk (TTF) is a travelling folk club for West Kent and East Sussex. We don't meet regularly in one venue but gather in pre-selected pubs around the area on the first and third Thursdays of each month to enjoy ourselves and to bring folk music to those who may not have had the opportunity of experiencing a live folk session before. |

Sussex Song & Ale 5-7 July 2013 at Upper Dicker


This year's Song & Ale held from 5th to 7th July was blessed with glorious wall-to-wall sunshine, helping to make it surely one of the best yet.

The quality of the event was reflected by record numbers attending, which entailed the evening sessions running beyond midnight. The quality and variety of the songs heard was very pleasing with very few duplications amongst the 300 or so renditions.

This was the first year without joint organisers, Ian and Mary Barr, who have emigrated to Waihi in New Zealand. However, Liz Randall, the main organiser, coped wonderfully well with assistance from TTF members and other regulars.

Binns was, again, our stalwart running the bar and doing a smashing job, a very needed left-hand man.

Elizabeth Rimmington, as usual led the Saturday morning ramble for a handful of early risers!
