Folk Weekend and May Morning approach

Oxford Folk Weekend starts today. We’re out and about in the City Centre tomorrow. We’ll definitely be at the Botanic Gardens at 10am and the Ashmolean Steps at midday, but may pop up elsewhere.

Meanwhile, Oxford City Council have announced a change in crowd management for this year’s May Morning. This was covered on the BBC and ITV local news; both used their library footage of last year and we appeared in both. ITV shot footage in the Botanic Gardens last year, and apparently they had a lot of us, but I don’t have any video. But we do have a video of the BBC report:

Havoc on the radio

Somehow we seem to be managing quite a media blitz at the moment. Fresh from our Oxford Mail appearance, also picked up by its sister publication the Oxford Times, Mick and Jim found themselves talking to Alex Lester on afternoon BBC Radio Oxford slot, and even playing a quick tune as well. The action starts 14 minutes in.

We even spent couple of minutes teaching him a little dancing.
