Join Alex Whiteley as he speaks to Jo Cunningham about Shrewsbury Folk Festival 2021.
The last time AL and Jo spoke was in 2019 which seems like a lifetime ago!
We don’t need to go into detail about what the pandemic did to festivals last year, it was awful. Shrewsbury is in what seems to be a unique position, this local and extremely popular event has had the greenlight whereas so many other events across the country did not.
But what has the pandemic done to the planning process when it comes to building a huge festival like Shrewsbury Folk Festival? Jo assures AL that there has been plenty of work done to make sure people can be as safe as they want to be.
Jo talks us though some of the music acts that are attending the festival. The line-up looks exciting despite the inability to bring in acts internationally.
