I emailed Jim McDonald a few days ago and everything is going ahead

I mentioned publicity and its on its way!

Based on Burton Street, nearer Hillsbrough tho' me and Judy Knight will be at the usual town pubs Friday and Saturday

Facilities are I believe very good for indoor camping etc

let you know when I do!!

I too await detailed information from Jim. It would be particularly useful for me, as I run the website. I don't think he entirely understands the importance of a web presence. Neither, it seems, does Burton Street, though their physical facilities are very good. They have webspace, but still haven't put anything there; which is why the link to it isn't terribly useful at the moment.

There will be a ceilidh with Cadellin and John Brown on the Saturday evening, 7-10.30. I've also heard rumours of a contra dance on the Friday evening and some French/Euro dance on Saturday afternoon, but I'm not involved with those so can't confirm for definite.

Burton Street has quite a few halls so I imagine the indoor camping will be in one or two of these.

Much of this is news to me. I can confirm, though, that indoor camping will be at Burton Street. I'm told that it will cost £10 per person per night, including 'full English breakfast at the onsite café'.

Anyone struggling with locations should look at the venues page, which has links to streetmaps. Note that online maps, and likely most satnav systems, have not been updated since the opening of the final part of the inner ringroad.

Also added are basic details of the ceilidhs, which I got from a source other than the festival organisers. Still to come are ticket prices and times for some events, plus details of workshops and dance displays.

Help!! The website now says that the Michael Marra concert is in the afternoon (that's under programme). At the same time it still says that it is at night (under concerts). Are there two? Will there be anybody there at the right time? Does anybody know the answer? Michael Marra's site actually says 8 AM which I somehow doubt!
We are beginning to think it's all too hard!

Going to Derby Folk Festival this weekend which must be easier.

Tickets for dance events are £6 (£5 concessions). No charge for children under 12 accompanied by ticket holding adults.

The supertram timetable is here.

I would normally have written "easy to use" but at the moment the server is down.

Elderly staggerers to bring their bus passes. Tram stop is five minutes walk.

Rest of the staggerers ask condcutor for best deal. Basically more than two journeys are best covered in a day rider. Supposedly non-transferable......

For those not entirely familiar with the South Yorkshire dialect - concessionary bus passes for those over 65 used to be valid only from 9.30 a.m. (now 60 and 9.00 am.)

However there is nothing like getting into the centre of Sheffield a little early if one can and thus those of us wishing to do so would try and squeeze this as hard as we could - trying to get on a bus at the dot of 9.29 with the cry of "Am I too early to use my concessionary bus pass" which became shortened in the local dialect to:

"Am I too early" And thus;

"Am a twirley".

I do hope this is now clear.

Sorry for the thread drift.

AND I should add - MC Fat is not a South Yorkshire man as Mr. Padgett and I are. This becomes obvious in the phrase "blacklead thee whippet" when a local would spell "thee"" as "thi" and would be unlikely to be able to spell whippet.

Walk, taxi, tram seems to be from Sheffield station towards Hillsbrough that is up past City Hall, West Street, University of Sheffield, Langsett to Bamforth Street which I think is closest to Burton Steet

No doubt Mr Eyre a dee dar will be able to advise number of tram and if I have it nearly right

Trams aren't numbered in Sheffield they are coloured routes. Take the blue tram route from Sheffield Station Tram stop. These trams go through the town centre to MIDDLEWOOD. If you think you are going to use the tram later in the day to go one of the sessions buy a Day Rider at £3.50 otherwise ask for single to Bamforth Street. You must press the request to stop as the tram leaves the previous stop (Langsett Rd/Primrose View) otherwise the tram will go sailing past the stop.

Slightly more detailed instructions from myself which may prove more useful!

The tram stop is on the East side of the station which is basically orientated North/South. West side is the main exit/entrance. The tram stop is signposted.

MC Fat is entirely correct when he says the tram you want is a BLUE route - he is not correct when he says it will be signed Middlewood - it will be "Malin Bridge". There is also a PURPLE route tram through the Midland Station it is OK to catch this as well. This will be signed "Cathedral".

If on a Malin Bridge tram that will take you to Bamforth St. as MC Fat says.

Should you get on a PURPLE route tram will go into the town centre, you need to get off there, cross the road and catch any tram - destination Malin Bridge (Blue) or Middlewood (Yellow) - both go via Bamforth St.

Full timetable including a map are here.

Jim McDonald has done remarkable work to get this up and running in a short space of time

Burton Street is an interesting venue with some good potential

Perhaps you should have shelled out for the Burton Street concert instead of just expecting to be entertained for nothing. Sessions are free, 'fringe' events and there's no guarantee they'll be well-attended. They are what you make of them.

Sorry about that. I have just got home from a packed concert in the Burton St. Project where I listened to a great spot by Skyhook and a wonderful hour or so by Jez Lowe.

Sorry your session didn't go ahead. Any thoughts how you get sessions to go ahead- other than announcing a session will exist?

Of course you could just organise a festival yourself that consists of sessions with no artists booked and everyone sat around listening to each other. Not all that difficult after all.

If a session happens and people are having a great time for no contribution to the festival whatsoever - good luck to them. If that doesn't happen due to people going to the booked artists - tough.

I have now to eat humble pie in that when Dave from Rotherham sang Prospect Providence Perseverance (Keith Marsden song) I said that the gaffer went and "kicked t'machine" and not what the book ~ Picking Sooty Blackberries ~ says "kicked the sheep"

I have therefore advised the RSPCA accordingly of this West Yorkshire tradition

The festival was really good, especially the Sunday concert (probably where all the session customers were). Well done the Burton Street team, who made the whole thing work.
I had one disappointment on Sunday, though. Went to the survivors session at the Hillsborough, where it appears that you have to be a good mate of the session leader to get a song or a tune - I got one song whilst others were given 5 or 6.
I suppose I could have elbowed my way in in one of the quiet spells, but I don't like to breach session etiquette.
If someone sets themselves up as a session leader then he or she should be looking at ways of welcoming people, especially newcomers (I don't live in Sheffield).
Like I said, a disappointment, and I wouldn't be in a hurry to repeat that experience.
I'll be back next year for the festival, though.

So you were the person who shouted abuse at me as you left. I have and always run sessions as fairly as I can but just for evryone information the session started shortly after 8.30. There were already a lot of people wanting to sing and play (yes some were 'mates'. As I recall it I sang 3 songs so where 5 or 6 comes I'm blowed if i know (I went out of the session for 10 minutes to talk to a reporter qho was doing an article). Shoz you arrived at the session around 10, I did notice you and gave you a turn and I did notice that you were joining in with instruments in other songs/tunes. We did not have an extension this year so we had to wrap up at 11.20 (although agian you fail to mention you struck up a tune on your melodeon after the official finish). To summarise I believe I did things fairly (as I always do). You got a turn (although you arrived for the later part of the evening. I believe I was welcoming yo new comers. If you were unhappy the perhaps the way forward is not be rude on the way out I certainly wasnm't rude to you. Oh and by the way I've been running sessions for over 25 years what about you !

Jim I've PM you about something else, but would support any organiser who gives a fair balance to singers who have sat in the room since the start of the session compared to people who have only come in half way through.
I've even been to sessions where because the latecomers were 'known' they were given the rest of the session - needless to say I walked out of that one and it certainly wasn't ran by Jim.
Good luck to Sheffield 2009

I've replied to Jim's points on the other thread but just to reply to the above -
- I arrived quite a while before ten, and I certainly wouldn't expect preferential treatment if I was known or otherwise. And several of those present did get more time than I did after my arrival.
- Jim, you are probably right that there are better ways to get a result than being rude, but to be honest by the time we left I wasn't bothered about a result - I was well p*****d off, as I bet you would have been in similar circumstances.
- I ran my first session over thirty years ago. That doesn't necessarily qualify me to run a session, but I do try to include everyone, and to be fair. And I'll stand by my earlier point that I don't believe the session was run fairly.
- As for melodeon, I also attempt to do a fair job on guitar, voice, harmonica, mandolin, etc, but I didn't get much chance to share that with you - and it is about sharing.

Give it a rest Shoz. You could have sent a letter/e-mail whatever to the organisers complaining, but instead you come on here to publically have a go at somebody, who has given up their time to help the fringe element. . Poor show in my opinion.
I always say that if you are not happy, complain personally to the manager(s) don't make it public on Forums. It doesn't make you look good.
What is your real name Shoz, so that other Mc's know who they are dealing with in the future.

I would consider Shoz being near to flaming, which isn't allowed on 99% of forums.
