Subject: 2008 Scottish Mudgather
From: John MacKenzie
Date: 20 May 08 - 07:28 PM

Right folkies, due to popular demand, I have asked a local hotel to pencil in the weekend 23rd/24th/25th/26th of October.
Hopefully we can do it all again only better this time.
The hotel has 23 beds, and if we fill them then there are local B&B's.
Malcolm the governor has quoted a special discount rate of £30 per person per night, for B&B
The hotel is called The Achness Hotel, and it is in Rosehall.
It is just a little bit further the the last venue, and not so close to the station [Lairg], however I can arrange to get people transported to the hotel from the station.
All those interested, please let me know, as it is only pencilled in at the moment. We need to see what the response is, before we finalise the details.

Giok

Sadly we won't be able to make it this year as the babies will be too small and I won't have had time to get their passports for them to fly! Next year will be a definite possibility....fingers crossed my dad doesn't get ill again!!

Yes, Mary- foolish, silly, thoughtless. You can find it in the Oxford English Dictionary (my favorite) as well as You-tube. Here's just one of the links Mr. Google offers, with a bit of the probable origin of the word discussed:

http://www.word-detective.com/2007/06/08/glaikit/


I expect that glaikit could apply to me more often than Megan or Giok will admit, kind folk that they are. It's a condition I strive to avoid, however and not one I would particularly associate with the Scots of my acquaintance.

well Mary , if I can save for a trip to US and Canada
then you can as well to Scotland/UK or Iceland


it even cost me more to go to US and UK than for you from US to UK
and I am only two hours 20 min flight time away :>))) from Glasgow .

then I have to travel six hours in a train so its just fun see all the
landscape and meet up with all that strange heartful people up there.

So come on " try to be Scottish ................... at the scottish BBQ

hehe

MMario has promised us another one of his lovely shawls as a donation, and I'm sure the odd bottle or two might appear.

Right, there are 9 people actually booked in, and another 9 or 10 people staying locally who will attend.
There are still 5 twin rooms, and 2 single rooms available.
Tomorrow I will send out invitations to about 20 Scottish based musicians, so it's a first come first serve situation now.
The nearest station is Lairg, and I will collect anyone who needs collecting.
The hotel has the best selection of bottled beers in the locality, including most of the Wychwood varieties, Marston's, and Spitfire. Someone mentioned cider, and if they want a specific bottled cider, I can ask Malcolm to get it in.
Not so long now.

If you're driving through or near Glasgow on your way north,, tune your radios in to 1530kHz (at the top of the medium wave) and have a listen to us - Celtic Music Radio. By that time, we'll have been at the Celtic Connections press launch, and will have news on the various acts that will be playing at CC2009.

If you want any publicity for the event, drop us a line (studio@celticmusicradio.net) and we'll add it to our "what's on" diary.

Not me - I tend to spend my time behind the scenes...dealing with the engineering side of things. If you hear me on air, it usually means that something is broken... :-)

The "top-of-the-hour" ident, and several others, were done by Iain Anderson, a well-known broadcaster on BBC Scotland, and a good friend of Celtic Music Radio. The other jingles and idents were produced by some of the presenters.

At the moment (just after midnight here in Scotland) we're on autoplay - you can see the last 30 tracks played by clicking the "playlists" button on our website. At 1am on weeknights, we replay our "feature programmes" from that night, which go out live on the 7pm-10pm slot. Tonight it's Gordon Hotchkiss, who focuses on Scottish and Irish folk. It's actualy a repeat of one of his shows from earlier this year - he wasn't able to do a live broadcast tonight, as he's in Canada at the Celtic Colours festival.

Tomorrow's features (or is it later today?) are Mark Sheridan's Music & Arts magazine show (4pm-6pm), Gerry Rossi's "Connections" show from 7-8 - a wide variety of music with celtic and jazz influences. At 8pm we have a new presenter - the Bill Adair blues show - and at 9pm it's Upraid, the gaelic show, produced by John Joe MacNeil and the team in Vatersay.
Gerry, Bill and JohnJoe's shows will of course be replayed at 1am uk time tomorrow.

Well the first night went superbly. I am home feeling slightly the worse for wear, for a shower and lunch. After that I go back to the fray.
We were about 15 last night. 2 are stuck on Orkney because the ferries have been cancelled due to gales. They may yet make it. We also expect more tonight, including ANOTHER button box player ;)
DRINK!!!!

Drumshanty and I had a great time too, so thanks to John and all the hotel staff for making it happen so smoothly, and to all the fellow Catters for the music and craic. Sorry we left without saying our goodbyes to those staying outwith the hotel, but with the clocks changing and the foul weather, we thought it best to get on the roads after breakfast: and I knew that if we stayed for the next afternoon session we just wouldn't want to leave!
Apart from the meteorology, it was a beautiful run with all hte autumn colours, and we spent an hour-and-a ahlf in Pitlochry at the "Perthshire Amber" festival's afternoon open stage.
Photos to follow, especially the Cassley Falls - You were right Penny, much better than the much more visited Shin Falls!

Fantastic. The people, the hotel (the FOOD!!!),the music, the place... The only downside was missing those who couldn't join us.

I shall have to post up some of the photos.

Thank you John, for organising that (and for putting me up on the Thursday). I'm definitely up for next year!

Now home and knackered. I'm going to follow Megan's example soon... *G*

Sorry we missed you all after dinner, we thought we would have a cat nap but just fell asleep, think we totally relaxed and it took the better of us, we slept right through till next morning. We also left early so that we could have a relaxing run home. We did look out for you all to say bye but no one was about.
