Tykes´ News Summer IssueSliding into Summer from a topsy-turvy Spring, weather wise, we find ourselves showered with festivals, many of which are noted in this issue’s FiloFolk, especially the Yorkshire ones. There is bound to be one near you.
Also in FF are the clubs open through the Summer and those closed through the Summer, don’t get caught out. Some clubs cruise along with Singers Nights which often turn out to be very special, sprinkled with folky holidaymakers searching out the local scene.
Now hop over to the Current Issue page for all the info on the Summer mag.
