Afro Celt Sound System

It's been a badly kept secret, but we've had to wait until the band were ready to announce the whole tour.

A pioneering and thrilling live band, Afro Celt Sound System return to live
action this summer for the first time in five years.
Twice Grammy-nominated
and multi-million album selling, the band play summer festivals throughout
Europe. Shrewsbury Folk Festival is very proud to be one of a select few
festivals in the UK presenting the Afro Celt Sound System in 2010.
A career-spanning survey double CD release of the bands best work
on Realworld will be announced soon.

"It's like a hurricane let loose... the spontaneity, the mix of ancient and
modern, the black and white, the fluidity and breathless glee" Q Magazine

Hatch Show Print

As many of you may know, we use Hatch Show Print to print fantastic posters that we make available at the festival - there's nowhere else in the world that makes posters like this and we have them shipped over from Nashville.

This year Alan & Sandra visited the print shop on their way home from Folk Alliance - and our posters are on display in the 'unique' print room.

Here are few images from the shop - including one of Alan helping you find the poster!

The image from the window shows our 2008 poster, it's obviously been in the window since then, and has been mangled by the Hatch Show Print Cat!

We'll be back to Hatch again this year for another poster - and will post details of it as and when we have them here.
