GUEST,Dave Roberts, Salt Town Poets Middlewich 2005 thanks (10) RE: Middlewich 2005 thanks 20 Jun 05

Yes, it was an excellent festival.
I gather from previous threads on Mudcat that Josher is a personal friend of Andy Roscoe or has, at the very least, met him/listened to him over the last few years.
So please, Josher, pass on our thanks to Andy for his wonderful intro for the STPs and Les Barker on Sunday morning at the Boar's Head.
And, of course, for all his other sterling work over the weekend.
As far as the Salt Town Poets are concerned, it was all very enjoyable. We're grateful to everyone who came along to our Open Mike Night az the Boar's Head on Friday night, particularly Simon Cliff who is the second winner of the John Brunker Trophy.
We had another great afternoon/evening at the Golden Lion with friends old and new, including the one and only Monologue John, Alan Earl, Richard Faulkner, Mark Bailey and Guto Dafis. And special mention must go to the Miv Cameron Band, who were excellent.
We were also very privileged to meet a lady called Maureen Palin who wrote one of the best and most well-known poems about old-age and its problems and has never gained true recognition for it(more of this on Mudcat in due course).
I spent most of Saturday afternoon at the Cheshire Cheese with festival founder Richard Devaney, Graham Sivills of the Middlewich Paddies and former festival chairman Mike Hough listening to Rory Ellis and Calico Jack (among many others, all of them excellent).
The planning and running of a folk festival is not for the faint-hearted, as both Mike, Ian and myself know only too well, so congratulations to all concerned.
