Fylde 2010 will take place on 3rd, 4th & 5th September 2010

The 37th Festival continued the Fylde tradition of presenting established and up and coming artists with a nod to the ever increasing wealth of young talent gracing the scene. The weather restricted the amount of Dance Displays taking place while the workshops proved as popular as ever. Sadly Tony Benn was unavailable, due to illness, but Steve Knightley joined Roy Bailey and proved to be a great replacement.
The Festival included Eric Bogle and John Munro’s last ever appearance in the North West, the duo are now going to spend more time with their families in Australia, we wish them all the best and thank them for some great memories. Another Band saying goodbye was The Anna Massie Band who will all be working on other projects in the future.

The performers that I managed to see this year included: Alan Bell Band, Ben & Joe Broughton, Chris Newman & Máire Ní Chathasaigh, David Ferrard, Doc Harvey & The Philistans, Dougie MacLean, Elbow Jane, Eric Bogle & John Munro, Ethan Thomas, Jeff Warner, London Philharmonic Skiffle Orchestra, Maz O’Connor, Roy Bailey & Steve Knightley, Scolds Bridle, Steve Tilston, The Anna Massie Band, Trí, The Worst Singer in the World winner and some of the Dance displays
