Plenty of room for Campers, Vans and Caravans in the Car Park or limited space for tents (though we are not responsible for any hypothermia!)….You can do any of these things for free!

Indoor Camping will be provided at the Village Hall in Kirkby Fleetham (150 yards from The Black Horse) with kitchen and heating but no showers for £5 per night…all proceeds will go back into the cost of running the Village Hall and not the Folk Club.

Kim,

It's scarier than that....note Bill Lloyd is on the bill as well, we could have triple banjo "Cotton Mill Girls" again!.......I am sure we will sell out with people who just want to hear that!

Oh yes....now what was I saying about a ticket?. Can I really survive another triple banjo offering?.

Maybe stuffing my head into Kimsky's three sleeping bags would muffle the sound enough (always assuming that they aren't occupied, of course!).

Hi, Paul:

I know the festival is rising like a Phoenix from the pub closure...

...and I'm sure the wider Mudcat public would be keen to hear the current plans. e.g. still got Mary Humphries & Anahata, Duncan McFarlane (& Anne Brivonese?), Marie Little and Brother Crow, plus Big Sings and even a workshop or two...

It's gonna be great!!!

Hamish,

You're getting all previous on me here! Website will be updated in the next day or two.....as Hamish says, with the pub shutting we are going for a more intimate, exclusive (he,he,he) experience in the village hall. Limited to 65 tickets because of space considerations... tickets will be £15 for the weekend (or email me to reserve if you can't wait!)and you'll be able to buy them within the next week from the KFFC website.

Draft line-up looks something like:

Friday 21/11/08:
6.00- 8.30        Welcome Sing
8.30- 9.00        Tony Levy
9.15-10.00        Brother Crow
10.15 – 11.15        Marie Little

11.30-3.30        The Big Sing
3.45-4.15        Jim Potter
4.30-5.30        Mary Humphries & Anahata
5.30-8.00        The Big Sing
        
8.15-8.45        Ian McKone
9.15-10.00        Wendy Arrowsmith & Blind Summat!

12.30-1.00        Hamish Currie
1.15-1.45        TBC
2.00-2.45        Bill Lloyd
3.00- ……..        Sing until you drop!

Limited Space (you will HAVE to let me know if you need space) for camper vans and limited B & B available with club regulars (£20 ppn) plenty of other local B & Bs available.

But as I say, Hamish has beaten me to this.....still some details to be sorted (e.g.detailed food availability). So watch this space.

Great stuff... one quibblette... not "Guitar Looping Workshop" but "Looping Workshop"... voice, percussion, any instruments you like. It'll be highly participatory and whatever you play, we'll have a go at looping and overdubbing in real time: be your own folk orchestra!!! ~8^)

Hamish.....as I said, you got all previous! Some details still to be worked out....like what do you want to loop with! Excellent news though, looped banjo anyone?

Greythound.....when talking to Poacher on Mudcat would you mind using his Mudcat name.....Banjidog of course! (I can't believe I'm having a conversation on-line for my dog!!!!!) He asks what the duo should be called?

Deirdre.....as requested above, you are number 1 (on the list)!

Can't really explain in polite company.

Should we start a thread away eh?
How about calling them Longdogs and Poachers - sounds like words from a song to me.

But seriously there are some brill acts on. Get your tickets before they are sold out...

Pete,

Yep, you've a Caravan spot booked. Only 2 left as things stand.

50% of the tickets have now gone (that's in less than a week and the event is over 3 months away!).

There is a rumour that a new tenant has been found for the pub (or you can buy it for £750k).....obviously if this proves true we'll look at using the car park for additional vans and see about using the pub for at least some sessions.

Sausages were great last time. Can't afford to buy the pub this week - might just save up enough for a couple of pints, though, as our holiday in Northumberland was cancelled due to a flooded campsite (yes, we were going up there after Pickering) - dontcha just love the British summers?

Leveller.....difference is that this time the producers of said sausages are also providibg the full catering for the weekend (3 meals a day for those who want them), which means that we don't have to! A percentage of what they take will also go back into KFFC coffers, which means more events in the future.

Hamish, you should be in marketing.... maybe The Leveller can get you a job?

Bingo.....even though I now you a pure bred racing Greyhound (retired), I'm afraid these sausages are just too good for you!

Bingo, following Ruth's comment about longdogs and poachers sounding like a song, Jools and I have written one with that title. Just working out the mandolin and octave mandola accompaniment but hope to perform it at BBB, if not sooner, and also do a mandolin and guitar version of Whipstaff and the Worktop Demon (just bear in mind that the worktop demon is a cat!). Suzy the Whipstaff will send you a sausage.

Dunc AND Anne (and I hear Gerry McNeice is the 3rd member of this duo)!!!! Marie Little, Mary Humphreys and Ananhata, Mrs Banjiman AND her band (That's Blind Summat! looks like I might finally get a gig at our own club if I'm good!), Brother Crow, Bill Lloyd, Ian McKone, Jim Potter, Tony Levy.....and some guy called Hamish as long as he stops the negative publicity!!!!! Lots of opportunities for informal singing and playing too.

(By the way I expect to re-book all of those (who need the gig) I've had to cancel during next year or so's programme).

Just a reminder that the tickets are going quickly (more than 50% gone) .... and we've got 2 club nights between now and November.

.....these things are sent to try us!

After losing our original venue as detailed above it now transpires that the replacement venue (Kirkby Fleetham Village Hall) is double booked for the Friday night. After much frantic ringing round and visiting local pubs (not all bad news then!) we have found a replacement venue FOR THE FRIDAY NIGHT ONLY. This is Leeming Village Hall which is about 4 miles from Kirkby Fleetham.

For those staying in Burneston & Leeming Bar, it is actually closer.... and it shouldn't make any difference to the "locals" for those bringing vans to Kirkby Fleetham we are thinking of hiring a minibus to ferry people there and back (so that imbibing can still take place!). This would probably involve a small (£1-£2 cost). It would be helpful if people could let me know if they think this is a good idea.

Finalising bar arrangements for Leeming, though there is a (open!) pub about 100yds from Leeming VH.

All other arrangements remain as they were and the rest of the weekend will take place in Kirby Fleetham Village Hall.

Any questions, please drop me a line or give me a call on the usual contacts which can be found
here .

Should still be a great weekend.... and I've ordered sunshine this time around!

Less than 2 weeks to go!

For those staying in Kirkby Fleetham there will be transport to Leemimg Village Hall on Friday evening. This will be provided by some of our "locals" who will give up a night's drinking to ensure our visitors have a good a time as possible.

There will be no charge for this..... but I'm sure those doing the driving would really appreciate being bought a pint or 2.....on Saturday night obviously!

Lifts will leave at 6pm and 7pm from outside the closed Black Horse pub in KF.

Cheers

Paul

If you want to read the review get yourself a cup of tea and make sure you have a good few minutes to spare!..........

I think everyone enjoyed themselves, certainly no complaints and lots of positive feedback!

We really didn't know how this one would go. With losing the club venue, the village pub, I was worried that the move to the village hall would be especially problematic for our weekend bashes...... especially when we discovered that the hall was double booked for Friday night. We almost cancelled but decided with a bit of ingenuity and some good will all round we could get away with it. and duly moved Friday nights festivities to the nearest available workable venue....Leeming Village Hall. A couple of our stalwart regulars (Lee & Glyn, who double as the best soundman in N. Yorks and the M.C.'s M.C respectively) "volunteered" to taxi those vanning in KF to Leeming and gave up a night's drinking in the process.

Great night, Friday..... singaround was passionate, funny, moving with some real quality singing and playing. Tony Levy's set was it's usual eccentric self with some well folked (I think that is how you spell it!) rock covers and zany self penned songs including the minor classic "It's hard being Jewish at Christmas". Mad but fun. Brother Crow were there usual classy selves, Andy's great songs, very well played by the 2 of them. Much appreciated by the very knowledgeable audience. Marie Little is such a great live performer, she takes an eclectic set of songs and really makes them her own. To me she really embodies "Folk Club Folk"....she's one of us up there on stage doing the songs like we all wish we could do them. Excellent. We then moved seats, bar stock, people back to KF, went home and had a couple of whiskies with the house guests and hit the sack.

Saturday dawned with only light snow showers (given that the Winter Warmer in Feb had temperatures down to -6, we have decided that KFFC actually stands for Keeping Folk Flippin' Cold), we started early getting our second venue of the weekend set up for the hoped for hordes.

The singaround got going at about 11.30 and grew and grew.... what a joyful sound with every corner of the folk world (and beyond) covered. The harmonious (if not pretty!! hee, hee, hee) 2 Black Sheep & A Stallion popped in for a couple of hours to do their share and we all had a good time with ale flowing....the smell of (over) cooking pork just added to the ambience! Jim Potter provided us with a fine set of traditional songs and tunes and gave everyone a breather....at 82 he was the "senior" act of the weekend. What can I say about Mary Humphreys and Anahata? Stunning musicianship, great songs very well sung and an infectious stage presence. Even a banjo......... First time of seen them, won't be the last!

More singing up until 7pm, then a very high quality song writing contest with some great songs very well performed. The song contest was "outsourced" to Richard Grainger's Klondyke Folk Arts organisation as I'm keen to keep my friends (and family!!!). It formed the last heat of the KFA song contest that has been running at Richard's Festivals all year. Some great songs and performances, the winner was Rebekah Findlay (which pleased the "home" crowd) with her great song "Duty Bound". Who was that dodgy backing singer though......oh the Mrs. The final was held on Sunday, more of that later.

Ian McKone's set was pure quality, how can one so young have had time to learn to play a guitar like that? Proper blokes singing voice as well. ....will someone else give him some gigs? He really is one of the hottest young acts in the North of England. Or maybe it is him that needs to pull his finger out and ask for more gigs!!!! Blind Summat! were next up, I better let someone else comment on them.....it's hard to tell how it went from the stage. The Duncan McFarlane "Trio" were storming.... I thought "Robin Hood's Bay" was going to lift the roof off the Village Hall. Thoroughly enjoyed there set as always. He's on the main stage at Shrewsbury this year (as he has told me SEVERAL times....... thoroughly deserved though. Glad we had them here again while we can still afford them!

Sunday was mellow(and rather snowy!). Another singaround to remember from the unearthly hour of 10.00am (whose idea was that then!). Then Derek Wardby did a short set (I love the fragility of his voice and he has written some great, catchy songs), Bonny At Morn (ages 16 & 18) gave us the younger generations take on the folk world (lovely harmonies). Hamish Currie has a fair dollop of class in a laid back kind of a way....and that looping stuff aint half clever. I booked Bill Lloyd again out of sheer self indulgence.... he sings & plays just my sort of thing.... great American songs and some really interesting material collected from Irish travellers. And that Banjo playing..... he simply makes the thing sing.

The final of The KFA song contest followed. Just 3 finalists, but what quality! Brother Crow, Wendy Arrowsmith (bias, me, when?) and Becks who had one the heat on Saturday. Brother Crow were slick, Wendy sang her unaccompanied bitter lullaby beautifully (bias, me, when?) and Becks has such an emotive voice. Becks won against the more experienced opposition (I've gone into football commentator mode), .. and thoroughly deserved as well (she's part of Blind Summat! as well... and had Wendy doing harmonies for her....I don't know more local bias, which is why we wouldn't have done the song competition ourselves). You can hear the winning song at www.myspace.com/rebekahfindlaymusic

More informal singing followed and that was it!

Too many people to thank...... Glyn for his MCing and remembering all the things I forget (which is lots). Joolz for remembering all the things that Glyn & I forget (which is lots). Lee for doing sound all day Saturday & Sunday. Brother Crow for doing the sound on Friday. Wendy for organising the bar and playing Bet Lynch on Friday & Sunday. Rob for his great organic pork and providing food all weekend. Hamish, Tony, Zeke for MCing duties........but most of all you lot for coming and making it a truly memorable weekend. It definitely works in the village hall........in fact in some ways it's better than the pub as with only one space it builds the sense of community. I had a fantastic time. Thanks.


See you in Februay (20th-22nd) for the Winter Warmer?

Paul

We had a brilliant time on Saturday afternoon with an audience who sang along to every song. It was fantastic! Thanks to all who were there and to everyone who sang!
Thanks also to Paul and Wendy for inviting us and making sure we had a warm welcome and were well looked-after. It is just what a folk festival should be.
Hope to see you again!

Well done Paul and all who organised it - and tell your son it was nice to meet him as well. He'll have worked out the trick by now.

Nice acoustics in the hall and providing you get enough people to it it's nice than battling the noise of a pub - especially as the beer was excellent as well.

And I met a hero of mine which was nice.

Out of interest do you know who was the lady with the light coloured hair who sang songs in front of me at the singaround on Saturday pm? (Just behind where Hamish was)

Nick,

Wendy thinks it was Barbara Helen who was sat in front of you.... I can't remember!

Thanks for your kind comments.....and I'm pleased that you think of me as your hero.... oh, that's not what you meant!

Peter says he hasn't worked out the trick yet..... but cut him some slack, he is the son of a banjo player.

See you soon I hope.

Got home safely...thanks all for a brill weekend. The music was great and it was wonderful to make so many new friends...thanks for a warm welcome. Have to admit that a highlight for me was The Duncan McFarlane Acoustic Trio...who are amazing, but it was all soooooo good. Well done Paul, Wendy, Glyn, Joolz, Lee, and everyone for all your hard work. And congrats to Rebekah for winning the competition with such an amazing song. Good luck with the Winter Warmer and the folk clubs up there. We'll try to come up again sometime.

What an eclectic bunch of people at KffC over the weekend, judging by the photos. What a grand time was had by all.
