It must be in the Premier League of Folk Festivals for its astonishing range of folk music together with workshops and opportunities to participate, all in a range of interesting venues. The ‘feel-good’ factor abounded and was due to your welcoming presence as well as months of meticulous planning which ensures there is continuous entertainment on offer.” ~ ElizabethFishguard Folk Festival
