Hail, Friend and well met!  It's sunny with clouds today, not that the wind has died down much, but it feels so much fresher since we had that bit of rain.  SUCH a welcome relief, i had to stop myself from going out and dancing in the rain, like i used to do as a little girl!  Not so cute when you are over 70! Have to say i really couldn't give a monkey's but i don't lay myself open to chills. *grins*
i'm sure the Cambridge Folk Festival organisers are ambivalent about the weather for the weekend but given that the Festival will go ahead whatever the weather, it probably won't worry them too much.  There is bound to be the usual crowd-crush on Saturday & Sunday. The Festival actually starts on Thursday afternoon but normally there isn't much of a crowd, though there is music on Stage 2 in the evening.  Nor will Friday be that busy, though more than Thursday.  You really see a step-up on Saturday, with both stages in full swing from midday-ish.
i wasn't sure if i was going for the full weekend, given the rather disappointing line-up over the last couple of years. Let me say i wasn't the only one who felt that way, judging from the comments on their Facebook page.  Anyway, i weighed up leaving out Thursday & Friday and getting day tickets for the weekend, but i wouldn't have save that much and luckily there is a more interesting line-up this year.  They have started this Guest Co-ordinator? who has been able to invite more international guests and this year, Rhiannon Giddens.  Just had a quick look at the Friday line-up and it looks as though both stages could be open given the amount of people. That gets better.
more later... bacon butty calling me...

The weather is so much more bareable isn’t it. Such a relief at night!

Yes, thank heavens! It's bearable during the day, just, but that nighttime sultry residue heat is horrid. And the damp edge to the pillows!
