If they are missing but not replaced that's not good but if it means there is something different to see instead then that to me is a positive step.

I've been going since 2003 and it has been good every year. Don't forget that there are new people coming on, and people generally moving about. On the storytelling side there is Tim Ralphs, a young and very up-and-coming talent; like me he has been active in Whitby's story-a-rounds in the Ship Inn. There is also Annamation (hope I've spelt that correctly), a trio of young lady storytellers. I saw them at Taffy's festival in the Lake District and they were excellent. I don't know all of the new people in the song and music sections but if they are of the same standard as these young storytellers then we can expect an excellent festival.

It's only my third year so most of it's still fairly new to me, and I can't wait.

I met Northerner the other week at Stanley Robertson's ballad workshop (hello Diane!) and she mentioned the hiring fair. I was aware of it, but there's nothing on the website about it - does anyone know anything? I've not emailed themselves yet but thought some on here might have some experience/knowledge...

Re the Hiring Fair if you want to put yourself up for it you have to book yourself a slot in advance - and as its very popular, its generally booked well in advance(around January, I think I was told a few years ago). I think you should be able to find details on the festival website.

Hello Drumshanty!

There is a general enquiries number on the website. It sounds like the best place to start for enquiries re the hiring fair. However, I have also heard that places get booked very quickly. Failing getting onto that there are any number of good singarounds where it is helpful to go and get experience and hope that maybe you get noticed. A lot can depend on your age. There are quite a number of competitions open to performers at various festivals round the country, particularly for those who are under 25. However, for those of us who are longer in the tooth some competitions are open to all ages, such as the competition for traditional singers at Saltburn Folk Festival. Competitive performing is a really good way to move forward. I had a go at Saltburn a few years ago. Although I didn't win (I was soooo nervous that I forgot the words to one of my songs!) it was really good experience for me as it forced me to try and work my skills up to a good standard and performing in a different environment is good experience. After the competition I found that people had started to take notice of me and although it didn't lead to paid work it did lead to people inviting me to lots of singarounds and generally getting more experience.

Hope I see you again, maybe at Whitby. I'm working on my Scottish material. This week I've sung "Fit can a young lassie", "My son David", and "Bonnie Glenshee" at local clubs, plus told a story.

Cheers!
Diane Taylor

Hello Diane how are you? you seem really keen, well done

yes Saltburn ff Fred Jordan Competition for Traditional Style Unaccompanied Singers has a trophy and £150 again won by Mick McGarry last year who is a judge this year

Enter for a decent sing and don't worry whether you win or lose, entry forms from me as usual although I understand we will be in a different venue with some changes to programme

Entry rules as last year ~ Must have a weekend ticket or stewarding with written permission of John Taylor

Yorkshire Garland doing workshop and I believe a Yorkshire song concert somewhere at Whitby ff

I have no doubt that the annual sing in the Station [Tap and Spile] will be heaving and the walls bulging and resonating as usual!

Hello Ray

I'm doing fine thank you. Had an operation on my left eye earlier this year, so been in the wars slightly but recovering. Had my stitches out earlier this month and my surgeon has allowed me to sing again now. It was so frustrating not being allowed to sing...

I'm looking forward to Whitby. I know most of the storytellers and am looking forward to working with them. It's great seeing old friends again.

I've been booked as a storyteller for Whitby and have plenty of wonderful stories ready for the week and still have time to add a few more to my repertoire. Am in the process of working on a few songs so can add a song or two to my programme where the venue is appropriate, such as the Family Club maybe. Depends on which venues the organisers place me in. I was at the Globe Folk Club in Guisborough last night. They loved my story - it went down a storm. A lovely singaround evening, very mellow.

I'll be doing a spot of storytelling in Saltburn for the festival, in the library, for the youngsters. I look forward to that. Probably means I won't get to the singing competition but hopefully will see you at the festival anyway. Also in Whitby! I'll be at the folk festival in Nature's World, Middlesbrough as well, giving a workshop on storytelling. Hoping someone turns up for it!!

Cheers!
Diane

Good for you Drumshanty! It takes a while to get the paying gigs. Make sure you get to plenty of singarounds and get to know lots plenty of people. Offering to do free gigs can be helpful too. There's some storytelling I had originally offered to do for free for the experience - I've now heard I will be paid for it.

I'm sure if you post on here nearer the time some of the Mudcat posters will point you in the right direction to the singarounds in Whitby, fringe ones as well as official, if you haven't already found your way round them. When I found out about all of these singarounds in 2006 I was like a mad thing. In the morning I would go to the Ship Inn and later I would go to some of the singarounds. Hope to see you in Whitby!

Cheers!

Dear "Les from Hull",
                      We were with Graham O`Callaghan this week in Padstow and I regret to report he says he will not be available for Whitby since he and Angie, by the end of this month, should be in their new address in France. He said Whitby had been informed earlier that this would be the case. I`m sure you will agree it`s a great shame and his prescence will be missed.

Not long now, the programme is on the website - but not the important bit about how far you have to run in the 10mins between each workshop!
Why is everything we want most all clashing at 11.30?

I can sympathise on that ... I'm giving a talk on one of the days at 11.30 ... which clashes with another one that I'd dearly love to go to, since it's allied to the subject matter of mine !! Aaaarrrrggghhh....

Just been reading the programme. It looks as though the Hiring Fair may have been changed to a couple of Open Stage sessions on Sunday and Monday from 3-6.

It says to tell the steward if you want a go but I'd be tempted to see if I could put my name down in advance at the office if I were you.
