Subject: Aylesford Village Festival 2008
From: Kev The Clogs
Date: 31 Mar 08 - 11:53 AM

Well folks, it's that time of year again!!

Calling ALL Session Singers and Musicians!!!

The Aylesford Village Festival 2008 is about to rear it's ugly head again!!! Aylesford near Maidstone in Kent. Saturday 28th June this year.

There will be Morris Dancers, Belly Dancers, Irish Dancers, a Fair Ground, Teddies in The Church, Driving School Cars, Sing-a-round sessions, beer festivals, displays and a concert in the evening with Megson and Hot Rats. How does that sound then!!???

This will be the third year of this event - it started with Bishop Gundulfs Morris and St Peter's School colliding on a Saturday afternoon - the rest is history as they say.

We have about six Morris sides at the moment, but more importantly for the singers and players, Pete and Gina who run the Chequers Pub in Aylesford, will be setting aside an area of their pub ALL DAY AND EVENING for sessions to happen!!!!! Fantastic views of the river and the bridge over the river, if you feel the urge to tear yourselves away form the fantastic singing and playing which will hopefully be lead by members of Travelling Folk and The Folk Mob (Essex Girl has spoken to reps from each group and passed on my invite, but if you can't remember - I'M ASKING YOU KNOW!!!!!!).

So, put it in your diaries now please.

Keep up to date with the web site from next week at www.aylesfordvillagefestival.co.uk

Can we try and keep this thread going right up to the event? Have a good season folks, hear from you all as and when.

Regards

Kev the clogs :-)

All contributions welcome!! Thanks Bard, yes, I will be wanting you there please!! Hoffmeister, yes, the BBQ fire eater wil be making an appearance. Shirtmurderer, I'm SURE you can come up with something fitting for Teddies in the Belfry!!

Just been let down for the evening concert by Megson (nice duo from up North - have supported Show of Hands - our committees fault, not theirs! So, back to the drawing board with that one. Need some WELL known talent for the sat night concert - suggestions please (especially if you have a contact - PM me please).

Onward and upward!!!

I should make it clear to the forum that suggestions do not have to be PM's they can be posted in the open. Depending on budget my immediate suggestions are: -

Wasps in the Woodshed (support slot)
Ian Bruce
Nuada
John Kirkpatrick and friends
Bluehorses
Iron Horse (are they still together)?
Peatbog Faeries
Davey Rumsey (support, preferably without his electric band)
Sussed (they have now changed their name to something else: as support - very contemporary)

Hmm, not a lot of English in there, I must give it more thought. I suppose Young Coppers are out of the question?

Don - you are ALLWAYS welcome at anything that I am involved in!! Remember The Little Gem several years ago - it was You on that day with Growler and Mr Grumpy aka Mr Bridge aka Hoffmeister, that kindly accompanied me with The Band Played Waltzing Matilda - the first time that I had ever been accompanied!! That REALLY encouraged me to sing! (so it's you people will blame now for my warblings!!! Only kidding - thanks).

I am PARANOID about this whole event, Folk wise!!! I want it to succeed, and so I am SET on getting a "well known" act or two for the evening, BUT, if we can sort it out with "our people", then even better!!!

Start Easter break on Monday, so will be emailing any of the suggestions that people are kindly making to ask for availability and prices.

I didn't "do" Mudcat when we started this event three years ago, but I can see that The Cat could be the "make or break" for this event!! ALL FOLKIES in ANY shape, form, genre etc are welcome on that day/evening. If this takes off (as was the original plan, to cross it with Sweeps and the Black Horse) then it COULD become a Long Weekend event!!!).

Off for some dinner now, but will check back later.

Kev :-)

As per Don, you TOO are allways welcome. That was a great day in The Little Gem. It was a bad time for me as I was spliiting with my Girlfriend AND my Gran was dying and that Saturday with you three guys was JUST what I needed and you kept me together!!!

Right! - Dinner!!!

Will let you know the details a little nearer the time - but it will amount to either being part of the all day/all evening session in The Chequers or it could be in one of the other pubs if they'll have us OR you might be part of the evening concert (not sorted THAT one out yet!!)

Spread the word please :-)

Just another update.

Have just spoken with Pete and Gina who run The Chequers in Aylesford. They are planning on doing a Medeaval Night on the Saturday night. I checked with him and he is FINE with US LOT staying all day and all night 'till closing time!!! He loved it last year, and I told him that I can pack the place for him this year - so don't let me down!!!!!!

The concert will be taking place at the same time in the community centre. SOME of the organising committee think that the concert is the b all and end all - well it ain't! I KNOW that some people will want to go to the concert and some won't - that's why I need the Chequers sessions to be filled.

So, twelve hours - that divides nicely into four hour chunks - Could we have a representative of Travelling Folk, The Folk Mob and The Bard and Don (as a pair) running four hours each? Up to you guys which ones you do.

This is a family site, by the way - can we NOT have bad language such as LAGER please!!!!

I'll keep you posted.

Kev

Want you there as yourselves or Ruff & Reddy - doesn't matter if you are just in a session or are the "headline act".

I have a feeling that there may be some politics re the concert from my end, so I'm just chugging away sorting things out quietly!

I've had a major strop - things have been done - Aylesford is STILL on!

We are getting a hell of a lot of sponsorship for this event! I'm working on a sponsor/promoter for the evening concert - watch this space!!

If any of you local to Rochester, are at a loss as to what to do on Saturday, Bishop Gundulfs Morris will be performing at The Man Of Kent (in Rochester) from 1pm. Singing and playing afterwards.

Bye for now
