After drying out on Friday, I had a great time! Saw what I wanted to, did a little bit of singing, worked a fair bit too!
Sunday was a nice enough day, however the rain waited until we were taking the marquee down to fall so we didn't have anything to hide under! Typical!

I'm surprised no one's mentioned anything about us running out of beer!






I'll shut up now!

Logging on in the local library, trouble with computer at home. Great festival had a super time and thanks to all friends for help with the Alphabet and Sunday Sing. Thanks for all the hard work of Alio and Geoff and all the committee your efforts were not in vain they were tremendous and everyone found something to enjoy at Saddleworth. As Alio said she wanted a singers festival and that is what we all got
Thanks and lots of love
Theresa

Did you mean to say anything Guest?

Thanks for all the lovely messages folks - I've added them all to the evaluations. And I'm doing my "thank you" cards this weekend!

Ditto also everything that's said above. The tenth (my ninth - so i can celebrate agin next year!) was really fab. Was a bit tentative this year as me mate Jim, who normally came along sadly died in an accident recently but the atmosphere and friendliness of the festival helped tremendously. Sat'day night in the Civic was amazing; after each guest spot you kinda thought, 'wow, follow that' but each act was truly brill climaxing with the fab Waterson / Carthy even without the great Norma (hope you're feeling lots better). The survivors night as Linda said, was tremendous; what an end standing up and joining hands 'as we went rolling home'.

I think the only criticism i heard was that the early acts on Sat eve didn't have long enough which to me shows the quality on show, such that people didn't want to let em go. Great tribute to the organisers!

Well done and thanks very much Ali for a smashing time (sure we'll see you around next year) and all the committee for the hard slog througout the year.

Saddleworth 2007 - fabulous music, fabulous people = fabulous festiva!!

It was my first time camping at Saddleworth (I normaly come just for the day, but there were too many good acts on to miss any). The running track was a godsend but the least said about the toilets the better. Weather not withstanding we had a great time.
With such a great line up I rarely left the main concert hall, except to go to a couple of "meet the artist" & a couple of workshops. (My friends Chris & Siobhan Nelson doing "Appalation Clogging & "Home Recording" respectivly). Everybody on Sat was really good & it was terrific to see The New Scorpion Band on Sun. Unfortunately the program didn't allow me to get to see Hissyfit this year.
Looking forward to next year.
Cheers
Les

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

Hi

Great festival!!!

Just thought we'd better mention, in response to the previous posting, that the first few acts on Saturday night didn't overrun... what happened was that some acts later in the concert were cut short for some reason, even though everything had been running ahead of time (according to the artists' schedule, anyway) until then! We were the first act on, and the set we played was exactly the length it was supposed to be. We were amazed, and very disappointed, when Bill Whaley and and Dave Fletcher didn't get their allotted time... weren't they brilliant, though!

..and we agree, the audience were great!

Chris & Siobhan Nelson

My apologies Siobhan I wasn't blaming you (the Artists) it was just that Bill and Dave seemed to be the only ones cut short and they were brilliant. I thought the whole evening was great, with the possible exception of "im in the suit." I must add by the way, that the audience singing was aided greatly by me keeping my gob shut!

Well done one all!
Once again we were impressed by the standard of Artists, Organisers and Punters.
Nice to see the Yorkists magnanimous in defeat despite all!
Is it worth mentioning the drought we had on sunday morning?
See you all next time!

Thanks for the nice comments Ray! An enjoyable time was had, I suppose Lancashire have to win sometimes, at least we showed them how to be gentlemen in defeat. A very good contest, and an enjoyable festival. Thanks to Malcolm & Janet Hodgson for tea in their caravan! and thanks to the organisers for organising.
And Ray if you need another contestant for next year you know where I am!

Thanks again folks - I've been in Wales for a cpuple of days with my grandchildren so I'm really chilled now! (I mean destressed of course - not cold!!)

We're not sure what went wrong with the concert on Saturday - I know Dave (the MC) was really trying to do a good job.

Anyway, it didn't seem to detract from everyone's enjoyment - a lot of people are saying that it's the best lineup they'd ever seen - not bad for a small-ish festival!! I was so emotional watching the artists and hearing the audience sing. Wonderful! As was the singing in the Survivors Session in Greenfield.

Cheers Ali. I'll send a reminder nearer the time - large may be ok - i'll have to cut down on the 'points' :-).

Oh and i have a slight criticism about the festival cd - you're not on it! Why it's an outrage!!

You're gonna have to put out a single for the 11th to make up for it. Maybe a live recording duet with Geoff with a backing chorus of the 'survivors night' crowd - now that would be something to 'roll home' to eh?
