So far, the extended glam-folk group only know 2 songs well. The rest will have to be TDL I'm afraid. John, you really must come down to Fox and Hounds. It was a great night with Ian and Steve last night. We played Gallows Pole with Steve Shorey on lead. AMAZING!!!

Quick update from Pam Blaskett.

"I've just been advised that due to new licensing laws we are unable to use amplification outside the Kings Head area. In view of this we will be swapping the Pier Front and Kings Head details on our original plan."

It's no biggie as the Pier is just over the road from the Kings Head.

Have fun everyone

And don't forget - the Friday Folk Club Deal will be open for business as usual - kick-off at 8:15 pm and it's a Singaround - so bring your voices and instruments and get some practice in for the weekend. Doesn't have to be songs of the sea, but if you that's what you want to perform, so much the better! Find us at the Royal Marine Club opposite Deal Bandstand, which is really at Walmer on the Dover road out of Deal.

What a lovely day it was on Saturday. Unfortunately there was no Lepe of Leopards as the boys preferred the beach to the Bohemian, but enjoyed themselves no less. TDL enjoyed playing. especially the requests.Loads of singers there too. Hope some of you can make our Orpington gig on Friday 28th September.

But Jim was right - lots of people were failing to recall that it was a MARITIME festival, and were overlooking to perform sea-songs.

Those who did seemed to lack discrimination from time to time, and if I hear "South Australia" again I think I will be sick. It's getting to ba as bad as "The Wild Rover".

Well weren't we fortunate with the weather... strolling along to the meery strains drifting out of the pubs- all the sessions seemed to be worth listening to... Ken, Sue, Bernie and I say a big Thank You to all who attended our concert in the town hall- there was a wonderful atmosphere because despite the mayors glaring down at us, everyone was prepared to sing! I gather from Martin that the 'Maritime' refers to the location, not specifically to the content required, though I think most of us hunted out our saltiest numbers and gave them an airing... Enjoyed the Gundulf Shirt Session, and my optician says I'll be OK any day now... next year, the Rochester Fishnet Dance?
Cheers

Have to agree with Richard, but did we expect The Barden's singaround to be Maritime? Too right about South Australia. The question "Has anyone done it yet?" could have been asked. There is always one shanty that's done to death at a festival. There was a lot of maritime sounds coming from the pier area. Were going to do "New York Girls"but we kept getting requests. No complaints about getting them.... shows we're getting noticed.

We had a great time at Deal this weekend - thoroughly enjoyed it! I can honestly say that, barring the 'Kent' concert, pretty well everything we heard, and sang, concerned the sea in way or another, but then I confess that the only informal session we were able to get to was a very small one on Friday evening.

But a lovely weekend - thanks to Martin for organising it, and thanks to all the performers that we heard as well.

i thought it was a great weekend! gorgeous weather!

The highlight for me was the singing in the Walmer lifeboat station on sunday morning, such an amazing venue, and well worth going along to, to get a second round of songs, from tom and barbara, chris, and the deal hoodeners (who will never be the same now they've lost Daniel to the Army Music Corps!)

I loved dancing on the saturday, having successfully ruined the upton upon severn stick dance...offcumduns did a set alongside wantsum and Frog Island, and to say we were out done is an under statement! But at least we added to the comedy/entertainment value of the weekend!

You are all right about South Australia....although if i'd heard drunken sailor once more i'd have jumped off of the pier, clogs and all!

Look forward to seeing you all again next year, when i plan to devise a cunning plan to keep my dad awake during the concert on the saturday night! He is the only man i know who can completely fall asleep, but still drum in time....now that is a skill!

take care everyone

Could it be that South Australia is so popular because everyone likes to sing about leaving Nancy Blair behind...? Enjoyed hearing several local sea songs- Ramblin Stu, Jean and Sue all sang self-penned maritime songs over the weekend, lifeboats and lives of fishermen. Proves that there's a tradition alive south of the Thames...

Hi,

Not sure if this is a private party, but I just wanted to say thanks John, for the singaround on Saturday. I wasn't able to get rid of the kids for long enough to get in the mood for singing, but I hope to do better at Tenterden.

Maybe I don't get out enough, but I found it no hardship to hear South Australia twice in one afternoon.

btw the kids rescued my knackered sandals from the rubbish bin by the (very good) chip shop, and cobbled'em up with a seagull feather!

I'm still getting over Mark Lawson turning up at the survivors stand at dead horse's ale having just been let out of hospital, to then drink real ale from a 4 pint jug....what a legend. :0)

A leg-end indeed.
Which end of said leg is sometimes a matter for debate ;-)
Dead Horse Morris had a button made for their anniversary ale which had a piccy of him on it and bearing the words STILL ALIVE.
There was considerable consternation when it was reported that he had a heart attack and was at deaths door.
The old bugger survived, and now regails folk with tales of how it wasnt a common heart attack, but something much more glamourous and in keeping with his stature.
He is, however, a rather more subdued dude nowadays.
I have promised to accompany him at Sheppey Sea Fest thingamybob.
(where he will no doubt repeat ad nauseum the folk tale of how Bluetown got its name, etc.)

I also had one of them posh heart attacks, last novemeber and being only 24, we swapped stories of our near death experiences!
But i do now have a lovely badge with Mark on it that says "21 years and still not dead"....i think that rather refers to the morris side and not mark, but all things considered it seemed rather appropriate! ((or should that be inappropriate!)
either way, he's still singing and drinking and telling stories and being mark, and telling me really good stories about my dad many many years ago, when they both started Gundulf Mens side....Anyone who can remember my dad before he looked like father christmas, has got to be pretty wise!

my dad was still dancing until the beard took hold and made him less aerodynamic than an elephant on stilts....

We also have some photo's of the oppers (I was about 2ft tall) at a Dead Horse Ale, in in think '91....will get the old fella to dig em out!

and you're right about the waist measurement, it's like you get 50% extra free with both of them now!
