Saltburn Folk Festival

This weekend saw the 11th Festival of Folk Music, Dance and Song come to the Cleveland town of Saltburn by the Sea. The event, which sees folk musicians and fans of the music from all over the country descend on the Victorian seaside town has always been well supported by people and businesses from the local community and this year was no exception.

The weekend gives the opportunity for artists to perform in many of the pubs and venues in the town and with a full programme of entertainment throughout the weekend everyone attending had plenty to keep them busy.

I took some pictures during an impromptu musicians session in one of the local pubs.

The festival returns to Saltburn in August next year and will once again pull in fans of this music scene from all over the country.
