Subject: RE: 'Beverley Folk Festival' Fringe
Home, dry, tired, nearly hoarse and delighted with the way the weekend produced more of those wonderful 'unrehearsed choir' moments in Hodgsons.
Congratulations to Willa for 'The Wilberforce Collection' events that resulted from her very great effort. It was a delight to hear James Berriman singing live.... (I heard him 3 times) what an outstanding voice. Sorry not to get to the Monks Mick/Roger. I was unable to get a leave pass!
Great job well done by Maggie and Les, Derek, John and Carol keeping Hodgsons front room in order....all weekend. An 'I'll only stay about 10 minutes' remark was forgotten as someone left nearly five hours later wondering 'where the time went'.
Wildboy let some gatecrashers in to 'Area2 tent where the singing continued. Zoe and Dave were brill as were Derek, oombanjo, Roy and Carol and I didn't want the evening to end.
The new rope string band had me in stitches, see them if you can.
Could have had a better layout in the tented village, a fab coffee stall was so far out I nearly missed it.
Great job on the campsite by oombanjo. He never gets enough credit for what he oversees.
Epic over now. If I've forgotten anyone I'm sorry but I'm somewhat tired. I know! Special thanks to Linda Kelly for services to 'Pistachio' time management! It's a hell of a task. xxx
