2020 Festival Postponed
It is with a heavy heart that we have made the decision to postpone the Albany International Folk ‘n’ Shanty Festival 2020.
This is obviously not a decision we have made lightly, but in view of the worldwide situation we feel it is incumbent on every individual to take whatever action is necessary to try to reduce the risks of this very serious threat.
We are taking this action now so that all the wonderful people who were planning to come, the bands, the fans, the infrastructure and food suppliers, have the best opportunity to re-plan what they will do over Easter weekend.
To the very generous sponsors and supporters, thank you for your confidence in helping towards what we are sure would have been a wonderful event, and we will be in touch individually in the next few days to tidy up loose ends.
If you have accommodation lined up with us either as a provider or guest, again we will be in touch within the next few days.
As we are going to be extremely busy and unless you need an urgent answer to a query please wait a few days before emailing us.
We hope that later in 2020 there is an Albany International Folk ‘n’ Shanty Festival and we can all meet up then.
Once again a huge thank you to everyone.
Gary Greenwald, Artistic Director, Albany International Folk ‘n’ Shanty Festival
