Sat Apr 27 2pm-7pm   Isis Farmhouse Session Oxford  Eurosession with dancing. Folk weekend Oxford isn’t happening this year, but a mini-festival of sessions and morris dancing is being organised by Jack Evans, and he’s calling it the Oxford Folk Fringe. Instead of the Folk Weekend’s separate French and Scandi sessions there will be a combined Eurosession in the marquee at the Isis Farmhouse. The marquee has a heated seating area and an unheated dance floor, so there will be plenty of space for dancing. www.facebook.com/events/364106890855449/ 🔗Isis Farmhouse, Oxford OX4 4EL
