Long languid days of folky feelgood vibes build up to spirited crowd-fuelled high times as the sun sets behind the leafy stage at Moseley Folk Festival. The music has home-spun charms and happy, hooky enchantments ranging from mellow to madly foot-stomping. Folkers can refresh themselves with local ale and Pimms, while experiencing the typical sights of flower garlands, crafts, banjos, beards, ukeleles, picnic rugs and hand-powered fairground rides plus summer hay throwing and hoe-downs. The annual Moseley Folk Festival always provides the ideal climax to festival season in the city, with its picturesque setting and quirky folk, roots and world music line-ups. Yet another pitch perfect, funky patchwork mix of musical joy is promised this year with the likes of Teenage Fanclub, The Levellers, This Is The Kit and King Creosote set to fuel the magical late-summer festivities.
