Subject: Faldingworth Live has closed as at July
From: The Villan
Date: 31 Jul 07 - 09:31 AM

I am posting this thread to ensure that I let as many people know as possible, that Faldingworth Live has closed as at July 2007.

The reason has to do with personal issues regarding myself. Unfortunately people were unable or did not wish to take on my responsibilities and keep the club running.

Faldingworth Live and earlier Market Rasen Folk Club were very successful and the closure has nothing to do with decline.

I would like to thank all the many performers who have graced the club over the years, you all did me proud, and hopefully I made more friends than enemies :-)

I would also like to thank all the many people who just came to listen.

Having said that I would like to thank all the people who helped and supported me through thick and thin. You know who you are and should be proud of yourselves.

I consider you all my friends and hope to see you around at some club or other.

May I just mention that the record for number of people at the club on one night was 89 set by John Conolly and Bill Whaley & Dave Fletcher who did a joint concert.

The lowest number ever was about 34 which is still very good for such a rural area.

As such, if anybody is interested in taking over and running a very successful club at this last minute (the diary can still at this stage be resurrected) then please pm me or give instructions on how I can contact you. There would be many happy faces if that special person was around.

Good luck to everybody and remember "keep music live, in whatever form or shape that you can"

Les Worrall

Really sorry to hear about this Les.
When we did the club it was pouring down with rain and there were flood warnings everywhere, yet your folks still turned out to see us. We had a great time.
It is a real shame that no-one is prepared to run with it like you have.

Hi Les, I echo all of the above.

It was a treat for us (Hissyfit) to join you south of the Humber and you and 'the FL support crew' and audiences always made us so very welcome.

Take care of yourself and thanks for a job well done.

Hey Les,
I wrote this just before you changed the bloody name of the club!
Then I could'nt get there for ages and now it is shut.
LOL
YOu saved the world from another crap song.

Market Raisen Folk Club
(ok Faldingworth live you awkward name changing bloke)

Market Raisen folk club
Is were we have our fun
We go there every fortnight
When all our work is done
Friday night in Faldingworth
The place you must be seen
Yellow belly music
In Lincolnshire so green

There'll be
Geoff and Mo and Deirdre
Mike and Paul and Sue
Martin, John and Les and Jane
Both the Caters too.
They all get quite intoxified
Dance and sing and play
Raise the roof at Faldingworth
To chase the blues away
(Refrain)

They like to have a bevy
A beer, a drink, a brew
There's lager wine and real ale
Gin and Tonic too
Schnapps tequila vodka
They drink them on the belt
The police cant breathalyze them
'Cos the Breathalyzer melts

There'll be
Helen, Neil and Sharon
Marshall, Di and Anne
Me, of course, but I abstain
Jen swigs from a can
They all get quite intoxified
Dance and sing and play
Raise the roof at Faldingworth
To chase the blues away
(Refrain)

(La la la la la la la Feelin' Folky.)
Of course it is a folk club
So maybe I should say
Les, he books some marvelous bands
To come along and play
But if you ask the regulars
I know what they would say
We're wasting precious drinking time
So lets get on and play!


There'll be
Steven, Dave and Angela
Ian, Jack and Don
Lots of ageing hippies
Who are drinking from a bong.
They all get quite intoxified
Dance and sing and play
Raise the roof at Faldingworth
To chase the blues away
(Refrain)

Throw away your mandolins
Pianos and guitars
Harmonica and whistles
Bodrhan and old Sitars
Accordions and shaky eggs
Recorders lutes and harps
Then have a competition
Who can down the quickest quart!

So come on down your sorrows drown.
And don't forget your beard
The audience will love your songs
And help you drink your beer
Your finger not the only thing
You'll get stuck in your ear
At Market Raisen folk club
For music fun and beer At Market Raisen folk club
For music fun and b

Alas for Faldingworth, the Club,
Has closed its doors at last.
Accoustic music at its best.
Is something of the past.
But memories will linger on,
We'll carry them inside.
Of all the great performers,
Who came from far and wide.

Thanks again Les. Best wishes, Mike.
