Weirldore all-dayer cancelled

From the desk of Ian Anderson, editor of fRoots Magazine
We are sad to report the cancellation of Weirdlore

Weirdlore was to have been a fabulous all-dayer of psych folk and beyond, taking place in Bristol on Sunday 10th June, with an imaginative bill of some of the most intriguing artists from the English folk underground. You can find full details of what might have been at weirdlore.com

Unfortunately the proverbial "circumstances beyond our control" - a common euphemism for the recession, the cuts, the Jubilee, the Olympics and all the other factors currently seriously blighting live music in the UK - meant that advance ticket sales nowhere near matched the apparent enthusiasm being shown for the event. As a result we have very regretfully taken the decision to cancel to avoid a large financial loss and a disappointing atmosphere. All ticket buyers have been notified and had their payments refunded.

The only silver lining is that the event had already inspired a compilation CD. Weirdlore: Notes From The Folk Underground - with 18 original and specially recorded tracks including many of the artists who had been due to perform on the day - will be released by the go-ahead Folk Police label on 11th June, distributed nationally by Proper Music.
