Subject: RE: 10th Saddleworth
Saddleworth Civic Hall Saturday night The real Stars, were the audience their singing was abso-bloody-lutely brilliant, spine tingling even. A couple of gripes The MC (who shall remain nameless) was pathetic he let the first two/three acts run over so we we ended up with just FOUR songs from Bill Whaley and and Dave Fletcher! Mind you they were four wonderful songs. He did however have the bottle to tell the Wilsons they were loosing a song! OK pathetic, but brave. These small niggles however never spoiled what is without doubt one of the friendliest Folk Festivals around. Well done Saddleworth AND we won the war of the roses.....Let my joy be unconfined
