Yoga at SFF 2011

We're pleased to announce that this year, we're introducing a session to help you kickstart your festival day - yoga!

British Wheel of Yoga teacher Faith Page will host an all-abilities session from 8.30am to 9.30am upstairs in the Pavilion on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

She's promising an invigorating and relaxing class that's suitable for everyone including beginners. Bring a mat if you've got one but don't worry if you haven't.

New Facebook Page

The festival's Facebook page was set up a couple of years ago, but the 'group' format is no longer being supported by Facebook and soon the page will be archived.

We've now started a new page on Facebook, and have started uploading some festival pics and videos - in the coming days we'll be uploading more, and this is the place (along with the blog and twitter) to pick up up-to-date festival info.

To join the new group, please click LIKE below!

We can upload lots of official festival pics and videos, but part of the fun of the old page was that we had lots of your pics up there - please feel free to upload your pics again!

Cecil Sharp Project - Child's Song / Barbara Allen

Child's Song / Barbara Allen
Sharp was struck by the cross-generational interest in singing in the Appalachians. His diaries frequently mention songs given to him by children and teenagers and their desire to perform for him and Maud on their visits.
Barbara Allen was one such, this version collected from Ellie Johnson of Hot Springs, North Carolina.
