The Cambridge Folk Festival has always defined folk in the widest terms and this year was no mistake, with a delicious spread of folk from the UK, Ireland and further afield, plus blues, world music, country and rockabilly.
Away from the stages, there were t’ai chi lessons, music workshops, impromptu campsite sessions, “progressive clog dancing” and plenty of face painting and story telling for the little ones.

of wee and crippling his opposition with secret Kung Fu moves.
