Silsden picking festival

Posted by john leary on Wednesday, July 13, 2011

It's the Silsden (Dalesbank Farm is BD20 9JH) picking fest this weekend, 15th 16th & 17th July. 

I believe Fri is picking in the bar, barn and camp site.

Sat is picking in the bar, barn and camp site + evening concert. 

Sun is picking in the bar, barn and camp site + a slow pick in the evening. 

As for the weather? Well the weather men keep changing their minds! I'm going and just hoping for the best.

Any other B.H.O members going??

Tried to go last Year Jim, and couldnt find it. So i will be giving it a miss until the organisers decide to put some Signs up. But have a good Time Mate.

Well alfiedog, I'm back now and it was a good weekend despite the weather. But it didn't dampen the enthusiasm.
I certainly think it's a picking weekend worth considering for next year and thereafter.
I was there last year and there seemed to be more people there this time with a lot of picking going on in the bar, barn an camp site.
A sat nav got us there for the last two years without a problem.

Hey John, glad you had a good time despite the customary terrible weather that always seems to take place for this weekend! I'll let you off not coming to see Sarah Jarosz in Sheffield last night...

I didnt have a Sat Nav last Year John, Bloody Hell, i spent at least an Hour looking for it before calling it a Day, and heading Home. Sounded like a good do Mate, glad you enjoyed it.
