Although there were plenty of good nights musically, audiences were dropping off and there were rumblings of dissent about  the quality of the venue, too hot in summer, too cold in winter. And, ominously, the landlady had bought a dog, a sure sign of trouble if history was any guide.

Folk On The Road continued to flourish with, amongst other outings, a St George's day show at Moulton Mill and another in the Ayscoughfee gardens as part of their Sunday concert series (the only one not to feature a brass band!)

The second Lincolnshire Harvest took place in October - the Michael McGoldrick band was generally judged an artistic success but the sell-out event was the double ceilidh with trusty locals Byard's Leap and the Old Parrot Band.
