Balfolk May Weekend

Filed under: Photos, Travel — Tags: , , , , — qwandor @ 2:37 pm

I went to Krakow last weekend for the first edition of the Balfolk May Weekend, a lovely little festival that some friends of mine organised. There was lots of good music, good friends, good dances and good hugs. I like small festivals, I find them more friendly, and there’s less of a problem of not having enough time to dance with everyone. This one had around 80 people at the bals, and fewer at the workshops.

I stayed on a couple of days afterwards to spend time with some friends and hike a little nearby. And it turned out that there was a blues dance event on the Monday night, with a great live band, so I ended up going along to that too, as did a bunch of other people who were still in town from the festival, as well as some of the local balfolkies. It also happened to be in the same venue as the festival, so it was almost like a continuation of the weekend, though without all the decorations.

As usual, I took some photos, so check them out for more details.
