One of the best gigs I have ever been to, in terms of anticipation, sheer vituosity and stage performance. I was gutted to not get an encore. more please Imagined Village!!!

well worth the wait in the damp for

Only seen the video footage, sure gets the adrenaline going!!!!!

Stupendous performance. This is the future of folk! Imagined Village has reimagined English roots for a new generation.

Anyone know what the encore would have been?

Fantastic show, but all too brief.I was sorry not to here Sheila Chandra sing more.

Stunning - the BBC coverage is brilliant, if a bit scant - they should film all the festival every year - if there is the budget for all the mediocre drama, sport and comedy across 4 channels, surely covering such a truly English event (in an Imagined Village, 2008 inclusive style type of Englishness)is what public service broadcasting is all about.
