Big thank you to Dame Pattie and yourself for calling for the Good Egg Band at the Family Ceilidh Splott Man. The band had a good time as well as the dancers.

Hi Cath, Not surprised you did not catch me not been so well lately so I spent a lot of time on energy conservation. I was well looked after by the Family Stocks though. I was going to head into Holmfirth from the campsite after I had a shower on Saturday afternoon only to be greeted by a cloud burst.

I have only one complaint, which is that Marie Blackburn and Lucy Stocks would not let me play my Banjo. They didn't complain when I was playing it on the campsite saving them a space for their tents did they!

Muppet was in fine voice on Saturday as was Harry who we have been encouraging to start singing for the last two years. The only trouble is that now there is no stopping him. In fact a lot of friends turned up on Saturday in the Elephant and were responsible for drinking all the Beer. I can only apologise to anyone I missed out when I was organizing the Musicians and Singers Round provided by Janet the landlady. The Bar Staff in the Elephant and Castle worked extremely hard all weekend I'm sure everyone would wish me to include them in my saying thank you and well done.

Did anyone see Ted perhaps he was in the Nook which was packed out all weekend so much so I did not even try to force my way in. It's seems to me Holmfirth Festival Of Folk has had yet another successful weekend. Great job and thank you to all the committee and organizers. See you all soon and back at Holmfirth in 2010.

How did you manage that Tyke?
Your last posting was submitted in duplicate.
Is this another example of techno wizardry or just a subliminal echo from the ether ?

Thats what you get when you Ctrl C copy from a programme with a spell check to Ctrl V paste onto the Mudcat. Then you can't quite see the double paste that you have done by acident. So sorry about that George

We Came We sang We Enjoyed.

Yes Taggart and Wright behaved themselves for once.

Our week-end went like this
Friday Night Angie sang at No.11 in the Open Mic. A nice little venue.
We then wandered around hoping to find somewhere else but they were all packed so we wandered back to camp and early bed. It was FREEZING!

Saturday
Anne arrived and they did an hour or two in the campsite going over about a dozen songs they used to sing all those years ago . A few lyrics gave them problems. Old age affecting their memory no doubt. Then into town. I carried both guitars.
They sang in Stamps in the afternoon then lunch upstairs and into town for a spot at the folk club in the White Hart and the open mic at No.11. A wander around town where we found it packed again. Trying to get in anywhere carrying two guitars was a problem so we went back to Stamps to drink all the beer!!!!
Oh yes the worst of it was they NEVER used their guitars anywhere that day. I must have walked miles carrying them!!!

Sunday
Missed the spoons workshop due to lunch or was it breakfast!! But they did go to Stamps AGAIN. We left early to grab a bite to eat before heading off and actualy managed to catch some of the dancing.

Thanks to everyone for putting up with them. Thanks to Dave of Fryish for giving them time at both No11 and the White Hart and to Steve and Ray at Stamps.
Special thanks to the lovely ladie we met in the Postcard on FRiday night when they saw we were frozen and soaked and they offered us a bed for the night when they heard we were under canvas !!

Thanks for a great friendly welcome some even remebered them from years back when they guested at Rhuddlan Festival and all those years ago when they opened at the Picturdrome.

If they behave can they come back next year??

We had a fab time. Singing, playing, drinking, catching up with old friends and making some lovely new ones.

Holmfirth is the best.

Yes Shaun spelt right and wrong in the programme!

Never saw Tyke/George all weeekend nor Soldier Boy

Dozy Rosy in the Stamps sang very nicely [Sun and the Moon]

Thanks to Jim Potter (with crutches) and Alma and Alan Wright, John Greaves and the every dependable Neville

Never saw String Theory, so didn't fall over this year (could still be a Wibberley Wobberly next year Tyke! tho')

Saw some new people ~ good 'un Gerry McNeice and some great photos from Ani McNeice, Michelle Holding lovely singer, the "Vibrantly Energetic" Flossie with her franglais who knows English better than most of us (I am not kidding either)

Jez Lowe and band, off on distant travels did an hour and a half on Sunday

Hamish Currie, very professional performance

Cockersdale were superb, catch em before they retire (25th year).

Didn't recognise Zoe Mulford until the end!

And sterling work from my old friend Lindsay Wilson and Barry Evans who did the pa

Nice to see some of the old uns such as Monologue John and Dorothy, and the genius who is Roy Blackman

Harry Wilson, I will buy you a tea at least! next time I see you, some brilliant filling breakfast from the Corner House, from early am

Did not recognise Muppett (two tees and two pees), full beard and tash very dark!!

Steve R and Jim McDonald who tried to get me drunk on Saturday pm

Finally Cath Ingham and Phil Jenkinson and all the Team and of course all who came and did their bit (most importantly)

One year I might get Holmfirth Anthem right!!

Ray

We might give you another go or we might get a substitute!
No but seriously thanks again to all.
Only the White Hart seemed unhappy so any feedback there could be useful - maybe best as a pm though.

Oh and apologies to Smurf. I would like to blame Phil who put the programme together or James who proof read it but I suppose I have to take the blame as I wrote it.
But if that's the only mistake of the weekend I'm well pleased!

If you encountered anyone nicking sounds by means of a digital recording device in the boozers and streets - in the best folk spirit - it was Yours Gluely. Manners suggested I ask first, the thought of stopping musicians in full flight meant I pressed record and answered questions later.

Ta!

Soldier Boy we picked up various bits of tent poles this morning which had appeared on the football field (they weren't there on Monday!) and wondered if they might be what you need to replace the one that was vandalised. They are in the back of my car if they are of any good.

If any of you are in Holmfirth tomorrow (Sunday 17th) you can help support NEXT YEARS festival by dropping in to the Farmers Market and buying yourself a bacon butty from the "Feed the (Festival of) Folk" stall. All profits raised go towards the Festival and last year raised well over £1000

We can be found in the downstairs section of the market on the 3rd Sunday of each month (and also sell mugs of tea & coffee)
