Thread Name: A New Folk Festival at Moira.
Subject: RE: A New Folk Festival at Moira.
Moira Furnace Folk Festival - Fantastic it was!!!!! The venue, the weather, the artists, the sound, the vibe, and the beer - the whole weekend. Revisiting the pub I had my firt pint in, priceless. They even remembered my mum & dad! Looks like we started something (Anne,Terry,Josie & myself) that Friday night in the Railway Inn. Saturday & Sunday evenings there were a real blast! Lynne check out there function room upstairs, it has great acoustics. One moan. I don't do mornings well so the 11.40 slot on Saturday was a bit of a shock - the website said nothing started before noon. Hopefully I was OK once I got past that witching hour. Don't be fooled by Josie's photos - I wasn't that bad - there may not have been anyone in the chairs but there were a fair few around the banking. Small is beautiful. Please keep it that way. Also it doesn't need "big name headliners" as the talents on display proved, just a few more bodies around the various activities/performances to show their appreciation which I am sure will happen next year. It was a privilege to be in on the inaugral event.

Cheers for MFFF
