Folk and Roots Down on the Farm

They’re planning a day of folk’n’roots at Farmer Parr’s Animal World on April 25. The event has been organised by the New Fylde Folk ‘n’ Roots Festival committee who promise a barnful of fun and a host of great acts at the ‘Live Barn’ at Farmer Parr’s Animal World.

The music can be enjoyed from 2pm through until midnight, with artists who are travelling from far and wide – including West Side Dukes, Drop The Floor, Mather Robinson Band, Richard Grainger, Rod Finlayson and Mike Highley (Aka Bowfell) and The Sail Pattern. There will also be local talent, with performances from Cartoon Food, Joanna Byrne and Mike Rolland from The Blue Pig Orchestra and Jo Hafford will be coming home to the Fylde Coast to launch her new CD, ‘Better Late Than Never’ at the event.

The farm is booked as a late night venue for The New Fylde Folk’n’Roots Festival on September 4 to 6 and this one-day event offers the chance for folk and roots fans to check the place out ahead of that weekend – so why not stay over and take advantage of the campsite and farm facilities.

Further details/update:

  • The Queens, Poulton Road in Fleetwood, is the venue for Saturday’s concerts. This is the original home of Fleetwood Folk Club when it first started and a new festival venue
  • Camping is still available and based at Farmer Parrs Animal World
  • An additional scheduled Irish Session 1pm-4.30pm on Sunday at The Bug, Lord Street(formerly Prince Arthur) in Fleetwood. This is a new festival venue re-introducing the Irish Sessions.

Tickets are £6, including booking fee, and can be purchased from Eventbrite.
