Aaagh!! I've just seen all your messages, so I'll try to reply to all of them! Very sorry to have dropped off on the radar - it's been a hectic year. My wonderful dad died at the age of 93, then i went off to the Orkney folk festival, and I've just spent 2 wonderful weeks in France with my equally wonderful 4 grandchildren. All excuses I know, but there you are!

Anyone wanting a full programme of events, just email me on, and I'll send you one gladly. or anything else you need to know, come to that!

There is a ceilidh - it's on Saturday evening as usual in the Methodist Hall. No bar there - for obvious reasons - so just take your own refreshments in, inc alcohol. Hamish, we're ready for anything in Saddleworth!!!

It's going to be fine and sunny - I've booked the weather!

Soldier Boy, thanks for all the lovely comments - what do you drink?!!

I'll be MCing 2 of the main concerts this time in the Civic - Saturday night and Sunday afternoon - plus doing 3 live radio broadcasts with lots of the artists, inc our own Hissyfit and Ray Padgett, plus 2 other smaller MC events! So I'm going to be pretty busy, but not too busy to have a glass of Jamieson's with you all!!

See you all then - unless you're at Cleckheaton in which case I'll see you this weekend - I'm MCing the main concert in the Town Hall on Saturday night. It'll be lovely to introduce Eric Bogle and John Munro!
