Just wanted to let everyone know ... Derby band [b]The Ram Company[/b] are staging the world premiere of our new show: [i][b]"Waltzers and Wonders: The Wakes Is In Town"[/b][/i] at the Derby Folk Festival this year. It's on Saturday 25th October 2008 at the Derby Assembly Rooms.

The new CD is out very soon, too, featuring a suite of songs I wrote back in the 1980s, when I was with Muckram Wakes, together with a couple of songs by John Tams (including "Pulling-down song").

The lyrics will be available on the band's website: http://www.ramcompany.co.uk so you can all sing along.

Well done, Mitch. Mustn't forget to mention John Tams' song "Lily Gilders" either, first featured on the BBC Radio Ballad about fairground workers: "Swings and Roundabouts".

The Ram Company's version has added a chorus, which isn't there in the original. Tam seems to like it, which is a good thing.

We expect he'll be there at the Derby Folk Festival, as he's the patron. I hope he likes the rest of the show!

For those of you who know the Florence Nightingale Memorial Hall, you may well ask how you get 9 musicians (which includes a drum kit) onto the stage of the stage there. Well, we spent last Saturday rehearsing on the stage, and a very good time we had.

Hope to see some of you there on the 4th.

Cheers

Sylvia

Some pictures bigger than a postage stamp would have been a handy addition to your website.

Good suggestions, Jack - I'll send it on to our webmaster.

What we should have done is to include our Myspace site as well, more pictures of us and music. Just scroll down a bit for the pictures.
