From Our Business Reporter:
Folk business circles were intrigued last night by the merger of R. Fielding Enterprises, Stubbs Unlimited, and Laskin Manufacturers, as announced at a shareholders meeting at the Free Times Cafe in Toronto. The initial offering was well received, with the three musical partners consolidating their holdings. Mudcat shareholders at the meeting included the beauteous Duckboots, the equally beauteous Banjo Bonnie, the imposing Tony Burns (in Mudcat regalia), and your Business Reporter. As usual, the meeting was packed out, and a second show was added at the last minute to accommodate new shareholders. Stock rose during the evening, culminating for this Reporter in a mutual fund float of "Blind Willie McTell".
Current speculation suggests that this new company is going to go head to head with another regional triplet folk group in a regional arena; either in a mutual takeover bid, or more likely in the 1st Millenium Tag-Team Folk Wrestling Competition or Battle of the Triple HydraHeaded Toronto Folk Groups For World Supremacy. A member of the other band was seen at the event, prompting murmers of the expected challenge. FWF Event impending!
