Subject: Who's for Wareham this year?
From: Morticia
Date: 23 Jul 07 - 01:29 PM

We many of us know about the deep gloom that possesses our souls on a Sunday night with the realisation that Monday is just a few hours away and therefore we must bid farewell to the careless rapture of the weekend and say hello again to our desk, boss and in-tray. For me, this is magnified 100 times in September where, except for the occasional blip on the radar screen, the long, hot (or miserable and rainy) summer of festivals draws to a close. Winter holds nothing but cold, dark music-less days and the world is a dimmer and sadder place.

I have a suggested cure and it involves a couple of fields in Dorset, an indefinite number of like-minded loonies, several marquees and a pig. Yes, honestly guys, a pig. It won't banish winter but, if you are anything like me, it will put a smile on your face for a couple of weeks as you recall the glorious harmonies, the lunacy of the medieval banquet and the energy, enthusiasm and friendliness of the participants.

Wareham Wail in Verwood, Dorset takes place this year from 31st August to 2nd September. It is held down a dirt track, in a couple of fields surprisingly well furnished with the necessaries ( loos and showers) as well as a kitchen turning out breakfasts, dinners and a fantastic, freshly made cream tea on Saturday afternoon for those of us who are sick of our camping stoves by then... which is pretty much everyone, right?

The unaccompanied singing takes place in any one of the three marquees that take your fancy or, if you like, you can drift between the three, you faithless hussy, you! We have the Shanty or any other big, boisterous songs you care to sing tent. There is the Folk Club tent, which tends toward the quieter, more reflective singers and songs, beautifully managed by experienced organisers and witness to some of the loveliest songs and sounds I have heard anywhere. Somewhere in the middle there's a singaround, usually managed by a twig or similar, being passed around so everyone gets a turn. All three marquees have a bar and all have real, and usually very good, ale, rum and shrub and other essential ingredients to a good sing.

Sometime on or around Saturday morning there is a medieval costume workshop, all materials supplied for a small donation to charity, in preparation for the marginally managed chaos that is the Banquet.

About midnight on Saturday we all solemnly file into the biggest marquee, now softly lit and hung with banners and bejewelled with long banqueting tables set for the fabulous 4 course meal that is to come. The top table has its benevolent King, Queen and Courtiers,freshly chosen that day for their charm, talent and ability to shout very loudly when necessary. The other tables hold the rabble, peasants and proles set on shenanigans and, generally, getting outside of as much wine as possible (bring your own bottle(s)).

How to describe the songs sung by the assembled company, to accompany the rich fare, or the majesty of the occasion when the pig's head is brought before the company, apple ensconced between it's molars and a rather surprised expression on it's face? Or perhaps I could try and describe the appallingly undignified and increasingly desperate attempts to kidnap said pig's head, the sheer effrontery of the supposedly good and gentle burghers of our temporary village and the ribald songs and jokes that are an inevitable part of this process?

Perhaps not though; perhaps you should come along and check it out for yourself? It's the best cure for the end of the summertime/end of the festivals blues that I know.

Morty - I think it might be time for Alan or Idris to update the leaflet. Derek and I will be there - he'll be running sessions in one of the marquees, as the last of the regular Poole Bay Shantymen/ Free Toast attendees. For the last several years, all the programmed sessions have been organised, and any type of unaccompanied song is acceptable in any of the sessions. The raucous jump-in shanties and noisy/ boisterous songs session is the late Friday night one!

But you're right that it's a very therapeutic weekend, with lots of great singing and huge fun - highly recommended!

Kitty

PS - there are other festivals later in September, in Swanage and Tisbury.

I am referring to showers promised this year by Alan, GRex, but rain is always a possibility :)

Hils, wonderful to see you there, as it is anywhere!

Cats, looking forward to seeing you and Jon... and the cream!

Kitty, the leaflet has been updated to Grandad's specs, you'll have to take it up with him if you don't agree with it. And although I know there are other festivals and later, this is the very last Main one for us and, of course, has a very special place for us, as it does for you and Derek.

Look forward to seeing you, Yas...and possibly your young man(?).

Phot, I would hope to see my little girl ( yes, all right, I know she is actually taller than I am, that is not the point) if not both of you.

I've just reset my cookie (again). I might have a word with Grandad sometime about his specs and what he hasn't seen with them..... but then it's just like the leaflet saying what time Sunday breakfast is, innit?

PS and I hope Crouch Vale provide the beer again this year!

Morti seems to have twisted my arm on my visiting thread, so you'll most likely have a Token Yank.

If it rains, it'll be Wash and Wareham, I guess.

Does anyone know if Alan is setting up the campsite in Sidmouth already, or if there is a chance I might catch him at home? I'm thinking of a wander up to his house (I'm not talking to him on the phone, it gets expensive). Ee's never around when you want him...

Liz, the weekend ticket is for the weekend & camping & inclues the banquet. The meal ticket will cover food over the weekend. So, it depends on whether you want to fend for yourself or eat communally.

Just sent for our tickets, hurrah *grin*

I made the jam a while ago, and whilst it's perfectly good jam, it's unlabelled and thus unidentifiable. It may be strawberry, it may be raspberry... it may be a conglomorate of red fruits - there is no way to tell.

Thus, it's just 'red jam' as opposed to the inferior orange jam - that is, it's orange in colour and may be apricot flavoured - that is in the same cupboard and also unlabelled.

It's free jam, d'ya wannit or not?!

No jamming, Cllr, unless with cream but, rather, the preserving of folk music instead. Kind of like a folkie jam, but only chunkier. Any jelly rolls and getting ladies in their jammies into jams is relegated to either after hours or after yours. The grounds can be considered a Folk Preserve like some grounds are considered Game Preserves. Game Preserves are like Game Jelly or Game Jam, only chunkier AND gamier....


Right?

(The River Jordan of song and Biblical fame is actually not that far from the Wey, in Dorset. Crossing the Jordan is really easy, it's a small leap or a large step. Bathing in it to cure leprosy isn't recommended as it flows through several pastures - unless cow pee has a hithertofore unknown curative property. Mount Ararat is only 20 miles away from it, and nearer the Wareham Wail, it being on Verwood Common).

They say one of the greatest honors for a doctor is to have a disease named after him. Looks like Severn a/k/a Doc Savage, Man Of Bronze and Brainze has achieved that lofty status. Of corpse, I haven't found a proper way to cure it yet, not even Hickory Smoke, so I'd best start a charitable organization. But I'm kinda new at this Doctor biz, so I want to know if this hits epidemic proportions and climbs the charts for a while before it flatlines, can I collect royalties?

If not, it's no big thing, because if us Yanks really wanted royalties, we'd still be a colony. Hell, we don't even want our President! We DO want back our form of government, but I
digress.....

"Severnitis" probably best looked at in the same manner the Blues Singers tend to talk about "The Boogie Disease":

"The Doctor says I might get better, but I won't get well!"......


....but I doubt it will be all THAT contagious, because Wareham supposedly only deals in Unaccompanied Maladies reportedly only cureable by Folk Medicine, though a lot of them HAVE individually tended to linger on for hundreds of years. So, as they say in the folk songs:

"What can't cured, love
Has to be endured, love...."

I have a suggested cure and it involves a couple of fields in Dorset, an indefinite number of like-minded loonies, several marquees and a pig. Yes, honestly guys, a pig.

Between the above and the fun to be had in kidnapping it's head, presumably after it's been separated from the rest of it, there is not much mention of the pig.

So loonies, tell me;
Is it alive when it arrives at the wail with the killing all part of the festivities?
Should it be billed as a "dead pig"?
It all sounds very traditional and a wonderful feature for the weekend.
Think I'll give it all a miss.

Pig roasts are fairly traditional in England - the mediaeval banquet menu does cater for vegetarians, though I can understand that they might not want to attend an event which involves singing the Boar's Head Carol as the pig's head is borne on a salver to the top table.

The big attractions of the Wareham (relocated to Verwood) Wail are the high standard of unaccompanied singing and the lovely rural Dorset setting.

I'm not sure when I'm getting there as I have an errand to do during the day... I may not even make it til Saturday morning so Micca, if you want your tent for Friday, you'd better pick it up by Thursday night!

Looking forward to seeing you again Phot - but can you please get that hound to have a bath soon - in the Barn at Towersey, he was attracting flies! Good job my tankard has a lid...

Being a virgin is Ok Jillie.

Hi-o, piggy on a spit
Alan bears the boar's head in
Hi-o, piggy on a spit
Which one has the bigger grin?
Hi-o, piggy on a spit

Piggy on a spit in a field in Verwood
Oh, what a wonderful thing to eat
David's slaving at the fire pit
Standing there turning a piggy on a spit
Hi-o, piggy on a spit
Hey-o, piggy on a spit
Hi-o, piggy on a spit
Hey-o, piggy on a spit


Kitty sings like a nightingale,
And even louder when she's full of ale.
We like looking at Derek's knees
He must drink pints of antifreeze

Kathy and John are like their cats
They bring up the cream, let's leave it at that.
Peter Collins has a great big voice
When he sings, we listen - we have no choice

We're all gathered at the Wareham Wail
Bloody good singing and lots of ale
The kitchen staff have done us proud
Let's sing our song and sing it loud.

A Yank's thanks to all who helped make the Wareham Wail a wonderful and thoroughly enjoyable experience for a wandering visitor and first-time attendee.

To Morti, who suggested that I attend and paved the way for it after only have known me in Mudcat print, something I hope you didn't have any cause to regret beyond my returning Jack to your camp.

To Hils, Richard and Liz The Squeak, who transported me to and from the event and provided food and lodging at their homes as well.

Also, of course, to those who transported me to various places of delight in song and story.

To all those who offered cures both refreshingly liquid and genuinely medicinal for a bad throat, hopefully enabling anything I performed to be "rendered" in the manner befitting a good folk song, and NOT in that befitting a carcass for a banquet.

To all translators, instigators, advisors, cooks, costumers and organizers who helped out a bewildered foreigner.

To the Middell Barre Table for adopting me and bringing me into the dinner plans, songs and plots.

And to all the Mudcat names who now have faces to go with them, as well as new friends and contacts some of whom, hopefully, I will be sharing songs and correspondance well into the future.

I hope I was able to give back something somewhere near the quality and of the spirit what I recieved.

I hope to be able to return someday, should they still decide to let any Yanks in in the future .

I've sent the link to this thread to Alan White (who's not a Catter), so hopefully he will see the confirmation of how much the virgins and hardened wailers enjoyed the weekend, and why we agree with him that it's worthwhile doing it again next year!

Psychomorris - I think you're a hardened wailer who lost your virginity by actually singing rather than listening this year, aren't you? Anyway, I'm glad that you're gaining confidence and now losing your virginity all over the place.

Kaz - I'm glad that you and the other virgins who hadn't been to the festival before had such a good time. We enjoyed your singing too!

GRex - am I right in thinking that you sing about Dutchmen's trousers (among other topics)?

Hello Peeps

Well it might have taken Andy 18 years to find the Wail but it was well worth the wait, such a relaxing weekend. I was worried on Saturday about the time flying by, it was only 1.15pm!! That gave me plenty of time for a snooze to enable me to stay up to the wee small hours.

The banquet was such good fun, it was so good to see everyone in costume, the table service was outstanding, task force worked very very hard, did they have to sing for their supper??

Thanks to the kitchen crew. excellent service, always with a smile, yummy food, yummier scones (or scones) and cream.......... (sorry I was dribbling there for a minute).

A big thank you to the girls for taking me under their wing, I laughed alot it was most therapeutic.

It was lovely to reunite with so many friends.

Thanks to Allan, Nikkie and their team, I do understand just how tired you must be, but book us in for next year please.

The Noble Pig Roasting

It was early one morning, as I was a walking,
I overheard a noble pig roasting,
Between 2 gentlemen and a bloke in Wellingtons
It was early just as the bar was opening.

Ch
There was Hampshire, Berkshire, Old Spot he was there O
Tamworth he never cooked behind him
There was Saddleback, Large Black, Oxford Black and Sandy
These were the pigs we ate at Wareham.

Now the first pig being young and his trials just beginning
He made straight way for the Beer Tent
The pig he did run in and we followed after him
Thinking to drink his beer for ever.

Now the next pig being old and his days nearly over
He made straight way for the cream teas
The jam he first put on and after that the cream
Cholesterol destroyed his life forever.

Alan drove across the plain, with a pig came back again
His cooks and his singers never fail him
For ever and a day, Old Alan he would say
Sing on me brave boys all together.

Well we thought that it was a superb weekend with Singarounds that were well run and democratic. What a change from those where "only my mates get a sing and we get lots"
NO high viz jackets or walkie talkie toting control freaks. It was just simply lovely.
The only problems arose from a misunderstanding with my Leige who did not understand a sincere compliment I did not call him Vassal but complimented him on his vast member.
For this I was unfairly flagellated and what was far worse was deprived of any CRACKLING. This will be remembered

Yas - this is a thread about the Wareham Wail, which was brilliant, and which Col would have loved if he'd been there (and if it hadn't always clashed with Fylde).

We heard about Col in the Sunday lunchtime singaround - the announcement was made by Richard of Taskforce just before it was Jim McAdams' turn to sing, and poor Jim had to follow it. He sang "Where ravens feed", very movingly.

Please don't beat us up for celebrating the Wareham Wail on the WW thread - it deserves to be celebrated, and we aren't in any way hiding our grief about Colin, which we are expressing on the threads about Colin.

We have seen him working at various festivals, doing any number of different jobs. Colin and people like him help to create the environment that generates the warmth, friendship and fun that you get at the Wail and other festivals. Without them it would not happen, and without the enjoyment their efforts would be wasted. Please do not regard our frivolity as disrespectful, but as a celebration.

Scooby - why are you not jumping into other threads to tell us all how to grieve and mourn our friend? No mention on the Fylde Festival thread... no mention on the Towersey thread, where he'd also been in the past... nothing in the Secret Santa threads either. Surely we can't be thinking of doing the Secret Santa without Col, who was an integral part of it on more than one occasion...?! Why not in the Shrewsbury festival thread?

Please, back off and keep the grief to the Obit and funeral threads. There were people at Wareham who haven't the foggiest idea who Col was. If you're ashamed of us, then fine, but keep it to yourself and admonish us individually in PMs and when we meet face to face. Wareham was a bloody great weekend until Sunday afternoon and lots of people want to remember it like that, before the hammer fell.

And a response like that would likely make it the last for several people. How dare you!

I would wish that more people made the effort to live their lives to the full, rather than just exist as some people do. Colin Kemp. God Bless him.

Yas

Please!

When the announcement was made the session came to a complete halt and Jim MacAdam was completely dumstruct for a minute or two. We restarted the session with Jim leading the song. I believe that Colin (who was a mate of mine)would not have wanted a session ended because of him.

Those of us that knew Colin have expressed or sense of loss in the other threads and those of us that can are going ton the funeral.

What is being said in this thread is that The Wail was a great success despite the loss of our friend and yours.

Dave

Yas, please try to listen to and understand what people are trying to tell you, and not attack people in the way that you are without thinking over your response in a rational way. I am asking you this in public as a friend. You are not normally nasty to people and I believe you owe Liz an apology. I am certain that most other Catters reading your response would agree with me.

I hope that the misunderstandings re the passing of Colin are now over. I did not know Colin but after reading the messages on this thread, I wish that I had.

Now back to the Wail. At one of the sings, I heard an extra verse to Keith Marsden's Funeral Song, a favorite of song mine. The verse was, to my mind, extremely funny. Please, can anyone supply the words?

That would be Snuffy. PM him and I'm sure he'll pass the extra verse along.

Scooby, apology accepted, thank you. It's been a hard week for lots of people.
