Leigh Folk Festival 2013

Leigh Folk Festival 2013 took place between 27th June and 30th June 2013, with lots of fine music and also an evening of storytelling with a witchcraft theme. Our first Leigh Folk Festival was in 2012 with the highlight being the evening session with You are Wolf, and Martin Carthy at St Clements Church.

This year the evening session at the church had folk royalty, with Shirley Collins & The Copper Family providing a memorable look at folk history. The Leigh Folk Festival website describes them as ‘defining elements of the English folk scene’ but we prefer ‘folk royalty’!
