COSTA DEL FOLK FESTIVAL

How would you fancy a folk festival with great acts, guaranteed sunshine, (well virtually) and a comfy bed to sleep in?

Well that’s what attracted me to the Costa del Sol Folk Festival in sunny Spain from March 14 to 19, 2014. And that’s why I’m looking forward to compering the five day event.

I’m also looking forwards to seeing loads of today’s top folk acts, including Show of Hands, Demon Barbers, Mighty Doonans, Steamchicken and Blackbeard’s Tea Party.

The festival will be held in and around the 4* Hotel Alay in Benalmadena on the Costa Del Sol and latest additions to the bill include the Tom McConville Band, Sean Taylor, Niamh Parsons and Graham Dunne, Fake Thackray, Flossie Malavialle, Hut People, Miranda Sykes and Rex Preston, Dave Burland and Rory Motion.
