Subject: RE: 'Catters at Gainsborough Folk Festival?
I agree about all the hard work that goes on by the stalwarts of the Gainsborough Folk Club - I think Friday night at the Old Hall went really well - nice to see so many in attendance swapping between listening to some class acts and dancing their little legs off. Called at EJB's Sat. that was ace - especially rousing was the Nelson's Blood song - really raised the roof. The White Hart was also visited and things were going along nicely. Particularly liked the funny poem about McDonald's - brilliant and the response to our request for the Elephant Man song. Concert was great Sat. night (some even managed to have forty winks whilst there)!
Haven't partaken of much more folk today, other than a quick half in EJB's at lunch time where there was a little gathering still going strong. Lovely fiddler, able to accompany any singer with ease - think they were from Sheffield way most of them. Thanks alot enjoyed that. I'm sure I won't be alone in saying that everything was much appreciated and all the hard work by the organisers certainly paid off. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. You'll probably be still going strong trying to sort the stragglers out. Cheers.
