concert raises funds for Burnham-On-Sea's Folkfest
A special concert was held on Saturday night (August 20th)
to raise funds for Burnham-On-Sea's Folkfest.
award-winning Portishead Band performed a line-up of well-known
tunes in front of a packed audience at the town's Princess Theatre
and Arts Centre.
The audience was treated to an evening of entertainment from
28 experienced musicians from the Bristol and North Somerset area.
One of the Folkfest organisers, Dominic Wills, pictured right,
explained why fundraising is so important for the event, which
costs in excess of £15,000 to run every year.
This year's Folkfest is just a few weeks away and will be held
from September 1st-4th.
