The timetable should be on the web site soon - there's some cracking stuff going on. It will still be draught and might not show the times up exactly but it will give a pretty decent idea of who is where and when. The proper programme should be out by April 24th ish I think.

I'm just slow and methodical Cath last year I was running my other caravan which had a gas heater. So I was out and about in the snow but this year van has not moved since Whitby F F. So it needs a goods service. I shall be off to a secret loacation the weekend before Holmfirth F F and then after Holmfirth Beverly Beck Heratage Festival. I was a bit misleading but as far as i concerned the Summer Festivals start with HOLMFIRTH!

The timetable should be on the web site as soon as Alan has time to put it on.
Important though that it isn't taken as gospel - it's been sent to artists and no one has told me that I'm expecting them to be in three places at once. It may change slightly but not a great deal. The definitive version will be in the programme which should be out for sale (only £1 - how can they do it?) a couple of weeks before the event.
The weather's practising now so let's keep fingers crossed.

Check with Ossonflags!!

We at Yorkshire Garland have all sorts of things in the pipeline like Sympsiums and Workshops, whatever they are!!

Anyway watch out for the Yorkshire songs things at Holmfirth ff and Andrew Rogers who is a character and a fine singer!

The Beverly Beck Shanty Festival is now part of the Heratage Festival
and it's in Beverly East Yorkshire. Steve Gardham of the Yorkshire Garland was threatening to bring his Yacht up the Beverly Beck for the Heratage Festival this year.Cleethorps F F sadly has already been asigned to History. Hence the Moor and Coast Festival rematerializing next year on the Old Cleethorps FF Weekend.

I'm pleased you had yet anouther brilliant weekend in Barnsly well done Ray. We are all looking forward to your Wibberly Wobberly Workshop at Holmfirth FF again. Here is a Link to Holmfirth FF and one for the Yorkshire Garland Web Site

Also following a request last year for information about workshops you will now find that - scroll down the list of artists and you will find it at the bottom. Not the most obvious place but it's there!

It has to be said that the Landlady has witnessed some raucous nights in the Bar of the Elephant and Castle. Her regular customers seem to have enjoyed the lively fun that has been the focus of those evenings. Yes they were noisy so it not a session for the faint hearted.

However three or four Guitars, Mandolins, the odd Banjo player Melodeon and a fiddle player doing some well known Chorus Songs with everyone joining in has been enough to raise above the chatter for some great nights.

As I think about last year I wonder if the two scantily clad ladies who they told me ran a Sex Shop in Barnsley will be paying a return visit. They told me last year that they were told how great The Holmfirth Festival of Folk weekend was from Ray Padgett and had decided to give it a try.

Phew the correct (at least 99%) is now on the web site and the workshop programme is on the same page.
Tickets for concerts in the Old Bridge and Ceilidh are being produced as I write so get your orders in. The Ceilidh is £7 (£4 conc) and the main concerts at the Old Bridge are £5 + conc (I can't just remember how much but it's not a lot) and there will be tickets for the Jake Thackray Experience and the Guitar Wizardry events on Saturday afternoon at a bargain price of £2.

Speculative rumours of my demise on a bonfire are grossly exaggerated!
I'm alive and kicking and only just emerging from my winter chrysalis to face the world and dazzle you with my charm and wit at the Holmfirth Festival of Folk ( I wish!)
As I have said in my PM to Tyke I am very moved about your concern for my health and continuing existance but worry not fair friends I WILL BE at HFofF and will be on the sreets in my full colours as 'Soldier Boy'.
This is THE FESTIVAL to be at this year (just check out the programme on one of Tykes blue clickety thingamygigs on this thread)-and also remember that this festival has one of the most vibrant 'fringe' scenes of any festival where the tight cluster of pubs and hotels in this village host many briliant sessions for both singers and musicians alike, all over the weekend.
If you have'nt been before dear folkies come and join us for a weekend to remember. You'll love it.
Chris.

I forgot to mention that the 'campsite' for tents/caravans/campervans etc is but a short stroll from the heart of the village of Holmfirth and that this weekend also hosts one of the biggest gatherings of morris sides in the UK so there is sure to be lots of colour,entertainment and spectacle throughout the weekend.

Also if you are a real ale fan you will be spoilt rotten - especially in THE NOOK (pronounced Nuck) and The Old Bridge Hotel. Enjoy

Just finalised logistical arrangements of getting the infamous Taggart and Wright to Holmfirth for the weekend. Talk about clocking up mileage and a large carbon footprint.
Angie will be driven down from Blairgowrie by the roadie while Anne will be chauffered in by Dixie from Chester. They hope to meet somewhere in a session or singaround or open mic on Friday where they will sing together for the first time in about three years . God help us. They may even practice a few times at the campsite before venturing out but then again they dont like their performance ruined by practice or talent for that matter.
Have pity on me as I carry all their stuff around for them. Just watch for the T-shirts or listen for the screams.
I have just put the campsite booking form in the post with the cheque so they will be there!

Angie was at the great GLENFARG FOLK FEAST last weekend taking in the sun while the roadie tried vainly yet again to win the World Puff-a-Box Championships. Despite being a World Champion Powerlifter (twice)
only came about 10th. Jim Malcolm won.

Hoping to catch Gerry McNeice & Jez Lowe on Sunday as well as several other artists new to me. If anyone who is going hasn't seen Gerry before go and see him solo or with the band - he's a great singer, songwriter and guitarist.

That must be worth at least a tenner :)
