Day four of the 2018 Folk Festival was set to be another scorcher with both the gloriously sunny weather, and the music line-up. Irish Mythen kicked off on Stage One, her musical perfomance punctuated by some absorbing story-telling and craic which had also entertained the crowd during her performance on Stage Two on Saturday.

This was my first time at Cambridge Folk Festival but I hope it won’t be my last.

I would say Gordie MacKeeman, of Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm Boys, is a virtoso fiddle player, except I need a more exhilarating word than that. He doesn’t just play at lightning speed, he plays with the fiddle under his arm while he is doing a thundering step dance. He plays standing on top of a double bass, while the double bass is being played by someone else.

Thursday nights, the first night of Cambridge Folk Festival used to be just the night you stomped round the ground, set up your tent, got your wristband and saw a couple of low-key acts with a beer.
