Eynsham's first Folk Weekend 2014

Various members of the side had a hand in organizing the first Eynsham Folk Weekend which went very well with lots of participation from aficionados from near and far.  The occasional shower didn't dampen spirits. A few friends have sent us photos of the event...

First Andrew Splawski has shared these...
