Sessions - make your own. Most of the pubs and bars along the small cobbled riverside area which all the Morris sides are confined to for the whole three days are amenable, and the organised festival sessions get very full and tend to the lowest-common-denominator.

I hope you enjoy your experience of being with a Morris side at Upton considerably more than I did - suffice to say I won't ever be going again ...

Newport Folk Club Mobile Unit will be there, best part of thirty of us this year, running the folk club on Sunday. Always a good session in the Muggery and the one of the pubs on the riverbank and a good singaround in the White Lion as well as loads of other places.

Canadia must be the incorrect spelland Mr. H. ;-)

Don't be put off Guest JohnB. The Morris folk I know have a great time and go back year after year.

There was a good tune session in the pub where Waterside meets Dunn Lane when I was last there a couple of years ago, but if you get a session going in a pub people will drop in.

'festival sessions get very full and tend to the lowest-common-denominator'

Agreed & following -ve experiences of this kind in previous years there, didn't wish to go there again - however had to bow to majority decision for friends' personal reasons.

However will attempt to seek out other venues to play, if not play with chums on campsite

Now living in Tewkesbury , so it would be hard ,if not positively churlish ,not to go this year !I may well be banging my drum (literally) for Happenstance Border Morris ,but will be seeking out "sessions" as well for instrumental pleasure. We might (fingers crossed) even have a narrowboat by then !

Well I find the Swan foyer a decent session.
The Muggery is always a mixed affair.
The Anchor is for those trying to get away from the crush.
I would expect spontaneous happenings in the Lion &/or downstairs in the White Star.
The problem with Folk is that it is and should be eclectic.
If you have special preferrences then you have to run your own session. This is no different from other festivals I go to. And hear similar negative comments about this and that session. All conflicting musically.

And anyway the real problem is that the young folkies are either thin on the ground &/or way too talented which makes it difficult to be a proper old fogie these days.

Maggie and I are booked to run the evening sessions in the Muggery, and we welcome a mixed session; songs, tunes, spoken word, anything goes. So we hope to welcome friends old and new for our very first Upton.

We are helping to run the song session with Johnny Morris and John Hare on Saturday Night at the White Lion, and as usual the Songwriting forum with Andrew Mckay and Carole Etherington on the Sunday. We always have a lovely time at Upton and are looking forward to it again

Hi JOHN B
I'm certainly looking forward to dancing with you again, JohnB. We - Exmoor Border Morris - had a great time dancing with OrangePeel for a while at Chepstow (Two Rivers Festival)a few years ago. And I remember how much I enjoyed your singing. P'raps EBM & OP could join together for a few dances. As you (hopefully) know, most of the time you pick your own spot and who to dance with.

AND HI EVERYONE
If you fancy dancing or playing for some Border Morris, Wild Thyme will be morrissing Under the Bridge, probably starting round about 5.30pm, for an hour or so, on Sat and Sunday Everyone is welcome to come and join in. Sticks and jackets provided.

AND SINGERS, MUSICIANS and WALKERS -
On the Monday there's a 'Musical Meander'. The walk is led by Ann & Mike from Foxs Morris and I'm organising the 'musical' side. I get given a list of possible topics (which this year range from the somewhat limited topic of 'greenhouses'(!), to ruined castles and 'almost anything about the countryside or heritage' - so there's plenty of scope for you to find something if you want to input a song. Portable instruments could come in useful too - but, be warned, the walk is about 4 miles, so don't bring the big accordion!!
We're setting off at 11.30am on Monday from the field outside the Sports Pavilion, opposite the Church.

P.S. Like Mrs Scarecrow (above) I always have a great time.

We'll be up for the walk on Monday. We usually miss out due to other commitments.

FRIDAY NIGHT
If you feel like a dance, the Dame & I, and the wonderful musician, Martin Hughes, will be hosting the scratch ceilidh in the Rugby Club on Friday night.
We'll be leading some old favourites, and road testing some new dances. You can treat this was an open mike for callers, and have a go yourself.

Had a bit of drama here this morning ; the passenger vessel from Upton tried to make a passage up the Avon to Tewkesbury Mill last night ,but ran aground on a mudbank . I watched this morning from our house,as she spent half an hour slowly going astern back to the Severn ! Let us hope there is /was no damage to affect the Upton FF river trips , which I am looking forward to !

We weren't able to get pitches at our usual campsite, so pastures new at Eastnor Castle near Ledbury.

Anyone know it/ camped there?

There's one thing I found about this site, they don't have any toilets, so I'll have to make sure I go before leaving home!
