Lack of headline acts postpones Folk Festival

THISYEAR’S Frome Folk Festival has been postponed because of a lack of bands available to take up the headline spot.

The festival made a successful inaugural introduction to the Frome calendar of events last year.

Jan Ayres, Frome Folk Festival organiser said, “It is with a heavy heart that we announce the postponement of the 2013 Frome Folk Festival.

“With the disappointment of a few headliners, availability and the wish to uphold the quality of the festival and not to offer a programme that doesn’t suit the ticket price, we have taken the decision to postpone the event to ensure the long-term viability and quality of the weekend.

“Our volunteers and staff have been working tirelessly behind the scenes for the past year to make a go of the 2013 event, but it is now apparent that it is unfeasible.

“We are already planning interim events throughout 2013 in Frome to keep the folk flowing and hope to see you all in 2014.”
