The Kingstone School of Creativity in Barnsley provided the backdrop for this the third annual Barnsley Acoustic Roots Festival, which took place over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. With the school's background in the performing arts, the stage in the main hall provided an ideal setting for the main concerts featuring a diverse range of artists; from solo acts such as Fran Smith who opened proceedings on Friday night through to the full-blown might of the newly invigorated Edward II who finished off the festival on Sunday night, with various duos, trios, full bands and a curious skiffle combo somewhere in between. . . . .
