August is festival month andas our fields and venues remain empty to the strains of music and merriment, our screens are filled with delicious moments of festival goodness. We know it is not the same but it seems that this is the only way of celebrating the summery things we love and miss until we can all gather together again in 2021.
Until now, that is.
Virtually FolkEast is our very own online offering that will be coming to a screen near you on Saturday 22nd August.
