Greetings Canal Catters,
You might be interested to hear that folky events are gradually building up at The Yorkshire Waterways Museum, Goole, where, at weekends, trips round the docks on the Wheldale, Tom Pudding tug can be had. We occasionally have song and music sessions with people like Ray Padgett, Jim Potter, Roy Atkinson can be heard performing. Also Gez Overington's CD of Tom Pudding songs can be obtained. If you have a boat there are are 2 adjacent marinas and lots of historic craft around. Canal access can be obtained via the Sheffield area or from Leeds/Liverpool on the Aire and Calder, via the Trent--Ouse or even Trent--Keadby Canal if you don't want to risk the Ouse. For larger craft, coast--Humber--Ouse--Ocean Lock will get you there.
There are no sessions booked in at the moment as all our regular performers are out all this month doing Yorkshire Garland workshops at all the Yorkshire festivals, but we'll almost certainly get some going in June.
