especially as that grand Mr Suretees had AlREADY booked us for 09!
But he's recently given the nod that we can now announce the fact....

So, no doubt Kelk Brigade/Chorlton Les/Joe G/Shiela/etc etc can rest easy...
The Duncan McFarlane Band (electric) WILL doing their
folk-rock best on the Main Stage
AND also Stage Two at Shrewsbury 09

See you lot (and many more!) there - cheers - Duncan

Heya! I went to the festival this year and went to that fiddle workshop with Tanya Elizabeth. She siad she was going to email us that tune that she tried to teach us. Does anyone know what has happened to it,as id really love to learn for my A level performance at college. Even if someone just knows what it is called that would a big help as then I can at least look it up.
Thanks, I really enjoyed the festival and will probably be coming back next year!!!!

I suspect that this was a random event that might happen if you get lots and lots of people together. I think the more important point is that with so many people, booze and excitement more random accidents will happen. The most important measure must be the ability of the organisers to provide appropriate help

I have started a new thread on the subject of Dogs at Festivals.

it reads:-

I wonder if I could ask for your help? A child was bitten by a dog at SFF and needed seven stitches. If anyone has any views on dogs at festivals would you be so good as to post on here or the festival blog - over the coming weeks we are going to decided if we should ban them or not. Many thanks for your help.

Tickled Pink will satisfy those Shrewsbury fans(whose number is legion) who like their music LOUD. Perhaps a special marquee could be built for this kind of act somewhere on the far fringes of the site...perhaps in Bridgnorth?

I found the inclusion of the workshops in the main programme very usefull. (As well as having them listed in more detail in their own section).

Usually, I have to write (squash) notes of the workshops I want to go to in to festival programmes so I don't forget them. Your programme made it easy to include the workshops in my planning.

I hope you will consider leaving them in the main programme.

Shrewsbury had pretty nearly everything going for it, except the Young'Uns. I hope the organisers will consider them for next year(or any other festiva organiser who is listening in on this thread, likewise).
The Young'Uns were absolutely amazing when I saw them for the first time this year. They are entertaining, brilliant singers and their approach is odd and deep in a very very good way. And, as their name implies, they are young. Wjhat more could you want?

We (the Boat Band) had a tremendous time. A high spot was the Shropshire tune workshop we did, with over 50 people turning out at crack of dawn on the Sunday to learn local tunes. Who says the folk scene has ben totally taken over by singer-songwriters? You can't get much more traddy than sitting learning old fiddle tunes.
We had a good "big gig"(Marquee2), a stonker of a litle gig(playing acoustically with Rory McLeod and Chris Bartram at the Bird in Hand) , and a nice laid back afternoon gig in the Pavilion. Which I think is actually a very good size, as big as a lot of performers would care to play in without amplification. If it was much bigger some people would be demanding microphones, and the atmospere would go. It was certainly hot though!

Well done Al, Sandra & Neil for not only bringing us a superb weaks summer hols, but also arranging for one've the best w/ends weather, raining only at night when we were all tucked up in our beds, & scorchio-ish mostly during the 6 days we were there - Fabuloso!!

Just a few comments I would like to address. I have seen so much feedback (600 emails) and blog messages and hundreds of questionnaires that I can't remember where I saw some of the comments – so if these responses seem strange please ignore them.

The Boat Band performed in marquee 2 which has 1000 seats.

Folk artists are not being marginalised. We do have to find the best possible performance venues for them. I won't name them and I love many of the artists that have been mentioned (that is why we pick them) but many are best seen in intimate venues.

Recycling: I have been to the Pink Skip depot in Telford and watched the rubbish on conveyor belts being sorted. I have also seen the bales of metal, plastic, paper and massive bins of glass etc. etc. so I can personally vouch that rubbish is recycled.

We had one extra shower block this year which provided a 30% increase on last year's showers.

There are a million things that go on behind the scenes – some of them are completely out of our control. For instance, Friday evening started late in marquee 1 because some members of the Oysterband arrived 1 ½ hrs late for their sound check – they had been let down by a transport company they regularly use. They were as worried as we were but there was nothing any of us could do about it.

It has been said that the Pavilion is too small and too hot. Personally I wish it was twice the size – obviously I can't do anything about that but I am thinking perhaps the Sabrina Marquee could be larger and then we could swap some of the events around. The Pavilion has air conditioning. I did show people how to use it last year but they must have forgotten. I will remind them for 2009.

I noticed the first people queuing for marquee 1 at 6pm. There are lots of things that the festival organisers can sort out but we can't stop anyone forming a queue.

The programme timetable will be better next year. It looked worse this year because there were so many workshops and more events. On reflection the workshops should have been removed from the main body of the programme. Will work on this over the winter!

Many thanks for your feedback – it's much appreciated.

I thought it was a great all round festival...

Fantastic variety of workshops (I really enjoyed the singing and may pluck up the courage to join the guitar playing ones next year).
Great music (too many highlights to list, although I just didn't get the drum band).
Superb camping facilities (although I'll try and get there earlier next year and plan my exit a better).
Adeqaute toilets/showers (better than some, not as good as others - more porta-loos would have helped)
What a great selection of food and beer!!

I particularly enjoyed the open mike finals - I wanted the guy who broke his guitar string to win, but it was very close. Well done to Acorn4 for saving the day! I enjoyed your set as well - very funny, I'll forever be reminded of your song every time I look at a gateaux.

Roll on 2009!

I had a great time camping in my tin tent in a lager round a gazebo with three friends... the four of us took turns to cook the evening meal. But we still visited the great food stalls.

The Morris sides dancing in Shrewsbury were great fun to steward and I met lots of people from Shrewsbury that I know. The dancers collected lots of money for the Festival coffers. Thanks to the tall lad from the Stoney Steppers and the chap with the top hat. You were the stars.

The concertina workshop was ace, very useful help on chords and ways round getting the fingers knotted up.

The site does need a major overhaul of the toilets, they have been there for years and years. The site could also do with a washing up area, as it was a battle at times to get a sink. (I have a caravan and we boiled kettles and did the washing up outside.)

The highlight of my weekend was RIchard Thompson. I hadnt seen him in a live concert before and thought he was ace.

I thought the toilets were fine, better than some festivals where all you get is plastic ones, and also a lot cheaper for the festival than having to pay for plastic ones!

Did you have to pay to get the flush handles fixed though?!

I heard on the Sunday morning that some kind souls had ripped three of the shower units off the walls thus putting them out of action.

Might be worth charging for showers and then any money left after fixing them could go to Charity, that's what they did at Cropredy one year I think.

Back from my trip with Mr. S to Europe (boring work stuff for him and lovely shopping for me)

Actually I thought the toilets were OK (in Shrewsbury not Europe). And I don't get the fuss over showers. Baby wipes work wonders!

Sandra, I hope the two artists you are approaching are Duncan McFarlane and Gerry McNeice. I'll buy my tickets now

Gerry, if you're reading this sorry we didn't get to your gig last week. We had to leave earlier than expected. I feel I ought to come and introduce myself as I've been harping on about you.

I hate to say this but 2 mins is actually a long time when you are rather eager to use the facilities especially if there is a queue because of the number of broken loos, But I have to say that the facilities are so much better than when the festival was at the quarry that I feel a bit churlish making this point

Blimey! It takes a maximum of two minutes to walk from the beer tent to the toilets. There are more toilets on the showground than probably many other festivals in the UK. Having said that some of them are not well signed and it is something we will get better at. The toilets are probably pre war but most work fine. The West Mid Show has 25,000 visitors over the course of two days and the toilets seem to cope pretty well for them.

Someone said (can't remember who) that there were no more showers than last year and that we had promised to provide more. There was one extra block of showers which provided an increase of 30% for exactly the same number of people as last year.

Thanks for the suggestions for artists for next year. We are definitely approaching two of them.

We were quite taken with the music played between acts in Marquee 2, so Tim went and asked the sound man who it was playing and he said "Its one of mine". At least we know now why the sound was so good in Marquee 2 - well done Alistair.

Must apologise to a sound engineer in Marquee 2 who begged me to fetch him a sweeping brush around 10am ish on Sunday,.

I was on the Tidy Team [the litter picker/ bagman with the baby buggy!].

He said he needed it as the show would start in 5 mins,.

I explained that in my condition - age, weight, unfit, creakiness - it'd take much longer than that to get to the Stewards office & back within this deadline, & as he'd already rung them for a brush, assumed it must be en route.

The chap moaned ' oh I might've expected that!' & moped off - however, I was shortly gratified to see a couple of young off duty stewards strolling leisurely hand in hand, staring in each others eyes, with a brush slung over the girl's shoulder towards the marquee!!

I hope the gentleman's needs were addressed!

As anyone who has ever organised any big event knows, the most important feature is the Lavs! Nothing else works if they don't!
Shrewsbury was a marvellous festival EXCEPT for the fact that there were too few toilets, (none near the main bar or seated area of Stage 1), the ladies' loos simply DID NOT FLUSH often enough for the number of folks using them (bear in mind chaps don't need to flush every time), more and more cisterns were falling apart on an hourly basis and one lot were flooded. They were easily the worst of any folk festival I have been to and that is lots ( 6 this year so far).
Seems a shame to spoil the ship etc.......
Get the toilets right and then we can focus on the music and dance!!!
P.S. No complaints about the cleaning teams who worked their socks off.

I visit the National Showground at Stoneleigh, and I can tell you that the toilets at Shrewsbury are well up to showground standard. As people have said they were clean and had paper, what more do you need? One of the traps in the block near the dairy even provided a free shower when you flushed it.

The Shrewsbury Folk Festival is one of the best in the country, I don't doubt that for a minute. Great line up - lots of more or less traditional music, lots of innovation, workshops and sessions. Camping on site - great food, involvement of 15- 25 age group.

However I may be alone in feeling the toilet and washing facilities are grim. Most responses on this thread point out that they are better than most festivals!

I couldn't bring myself to photograph the Gents etc. but was amused by some of the facilities offered to the Agricultural workers who clearly use the site during the rest of the year. I really feel they deserve something better.
