Folk Music From the North West- Over the past twenty years I have been to many Folk Music events, based mainly in the North West of England. At a lot of these I've been accompanied by my battered old Pentax camera and as a result have amassed a number of photos that have never seen the light of day. The Galleries included are a selection of these photos. Roger Liptrot
