Local press comment following the Town Meeting of 14 June.

Festival will live on - but how?

The report includes that a feeling from the town meeting was the importance of sending out a message to the world that the festival is secure.

The view of local 'folkies' is that there is a serious risk that 2004 will be the last successful year. There is no time or room for complacency. New sources of funding may need to be found. This is discussed in subsequent pages.
