The Melton Mowbray Christmas Folk Trail is completly free and takes place in pubs and restaurants in the town centre of Melton Mowbray.
It is organised by the Melton Folk Club and features a huge roster of acts from all over the country. We love it!!
The following is from the Melton Folk website and sums up the vibe of the fest and their splendid attitude to music and creative performance:
"We encourage a wide variety of styles within our club, almost to the point of "All Music is Folk Music". From Medieval and Renaissance lute music and song, through folk song and dance of later centuries, to the more recent folk revival and singer/songwriter genre. We also encourage the reading and writing of poetry as an adjunct to the music. We embrace the various traditions of music of the British Isles and the Blues and Country music of the USA, along with less well known styles of the rest of the world"

14 Legged Beast that Aught to Know Better.
What started out with a song lamenting the closing of our favourite pub somehow grew into a lively heap of true and untrue stories about life, love, drink and the inappropriate use of dairy squirty cream. Our style is mix of Irish folk and English indie, played with reckless enthusiasm and good humor.
As a great man once said ‘There’s nothing to be gained by a wet thing called a tear.'
Not all our songs are happy but there’s no harm seeking light in the darkness.
Here’s a few songs from the set
There’s more drunken nonsense on our Bandcamp page.
I’ll point two fingers to the sky,
you can kiss my arse goodbye
Stowford Press. When you absolutely, positively got to get completely pissed, accept no substitutes.
Concerns the adventures of the 27 legged beast in the capital of Éire
Guinness with a Jameson chaser, repeat.
The best pub ever,
where even Death would not set foot.
Peeg recommends Thatchers Gold or a skin full of Thatchers Katy if you really fancy a Wunderbar NDE!
The battle of the pay cheque,
as It was in 1981
15 pints of Hofmeister followed by a scrap in the Jack o’ Lent (for that full 80’s retro feeling)
