    Do you have any photos of the inaugural NYFTE group? I distinctly remember the Wantage rehearsals and Broadstairs performances. Who knows where the time goes?

    You guys are amazing! We were lucky enough to watch your performance last weekend at the Green Park station in Bath and were really impressed. Keep up performing!

    Just wanted to say thank you to everyone involved for the wonderful set at Chippenham folk festival on Sunday 3rd June 2012, the excitement, enthusiasm, and energy transferred from everyone on stage to us in the audience. You had my 90 year old mum in her wheel chair, tapping her feet, waving her hands, and singing along as if she was on stage with you. Congratulations to you all.
