Subject: Queensbury Music Festival 7/8 March 2009
From: Joe G

Hi everyone

We now have the main concerts and ticket prices confrmed for the Folk Day which is part of the first Queensbury Music Festival. Queensbury is a large friendly village which sits astride the A647 Bradford - Halifax road. The Folk Day will be Saturday 7th March and I think we have managed to pull together a great line up in a very short time.

The philosophy behind the line up was to showcase some of the finest established artists and emerging talent from across Yorkshire (with an essential element from Derbyshire) so the artists appearing include:

John Tams & Barry Coope, Coope Boyes & Simpson, Skyhook, Tom Bliss & Tom Napper, Crucible, Duncan McFarlane Electric Band, Hall Brothers, Roger Davies, Gerry McNiece Band, Pat Sherry & Stuart Douglas, Ylem, Michelle Plum & Nick B Hall

We also intend to have a number of workshops, sessions and singarounds and superb real ale all centred around the lovely Victoria Hall in the centre of the village.

We are investigating the possibility of indoor camping and parking for motorhomes but can't promise this at the moment. Anyway this line up is worth staying sober for!

See here for more details: http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=423390710

Hope to meet some of you there - a Mudcat attendance book will be available!

Just a refresh for this as the advert will be appearing in local folk magazines soon and we are hoping to have a strong demand for tickets for what are limited size venues (approx 175 seats in each of the concert rooms). So a chance for 'Catters to beat the crowds (he says hopefully!) by checking out the MySpace site for ticket details (apologies for the temporary rather garish design of the site if you do go there - someone has got a bit over enthusiastic with the graphics!). There will also be singarounds and sessions for those who prefer to make their own entertainment as well as workshops.

A timely bump as it is only just over 3 weeks to the festival - hope to see some friends from here in Queensbury

On the Friday night (6 March)before the Folk Day we have a free gig with the Hut People at Raggalds Acoustic nearby and Mat Walklate & the HouseDevils will be appearing on Sunday in Queensbury, along with lots of musicians from the village playing all different types of music.

Should be a great weekend

By coincidence just sorted your tickets out Bainbo (I'll leave them on the door or could post if you prefer) but see your email for a query about your Sunday requirements.

Also just had a long afternoon preparing for our final meeting tomorrow - I'm at the 'never again' stage now - especially after reading some unhelpful and ill informed comments in Tykes News - to which I will respond in the next edition!

Really looking forward to seeing new and old friends there - and of course to hearing as many as possiible of the superb artists we are featuring.

If anyone can help spread the word about the festival please do so as at the moment we have tickets left to sell.

Just a quick but huge thanks to everyone who came today (artists, audience & stewards). Hope you all enjoyed it - despite the small audience at some of the events which was very disappointing given the wealth of talent on display.

I've learned a huge amount from the experience and hopefully will be able to put my learning into practice sometime in the future.

Thanks Deidre - great to meet you and the levellers at last - glad you enjoyed it - although the Victoria Hall stage seemed to work well its such a shame that the local heroes stage did not have an audience size more worthy of the artists .

To a certain extent I was relying on an enthusiastic response from the local community to these concerts but sadly this did not materialise.

Still it was a great day and as I've said I learned a lot about festival organisation - and how to get by on little sleep!

Thanks for coming so far to support us - much appreciated!

We had a totally fantastic day. Great to meet you, Joe (thanks for all your efforts) and to finally meet Deidre as well - great craic and we'll be down to Gainsborough when we eventually get ourselves sorted out.

We thought the mix of artists was superb, the venue was perefct for a festival in March and it was all so realxed and friendly. As well as the performances we really liked the workshop with Messrs Napper and Bliss - and tell the people who did the catering that the food was excellent (as, indeed, was the beer).

We really hope that this becomes a permament fixture. If so, it'll have a permanent place in our diary.

Anyone who was in the Con Club on Saturday night - the two barmaids are my daughters. We all agreed there hadn't been enough local advertising, also as the Club almost never hosts gigs, it wouldn't have been an obvious venue, which might explain the disappointing turn out for a good gig.

Hi all

Thanks for the helpful and kind comments = really appreciated from a tired Joe G having just got back from the community music day. Looking back I think our main sin was over enthusiasm - relying on a large local audinece to swell the ranks of folkies - unfortunately these did not materialise so if we do it again I suspect we may scale down our activities until a more significant local reputation is established.

Duncan is right re the advertising - due to circumastances beyond my control it was both late and lacking in detail - also of course we did not have a festival season to build our advertising on and some unhelpful comments may not have helped.

Thanks again - I'm glad everyone enjoyed it - I just feel sorry for the chap who drove from Sheffield today to see Duncan!

Joe,

Don't be put off.... I'm sure you are onto a winner. Key thing is to learn lessons and modify where required. Maybe we can compare notes when we are with you on the 20th?

Sounds like it was artistically succesful though.... sorry we didn't make it but by the time we'd done Whitby on Friday and Ingleton on Saturday the kids were a bit folked off and we were a tad tired!

Joe had good reports from the Crucible mob they said event was great. Don't worry about lack of attendances at your Local Hero's sometimes things just don't work. Just learn from what you've done and tweek it. Perhaps the Local Hero's might have been better on Sunday or even Friday either way you've had a success and that's brill for a first event.

Thanks again everyone for the further supportive comments. I've just emailed the Director in charge of Council leisure facilities to highlight the huge support we had from the Victoria Hall staff who were just brilliant.

Thanks Dave for pulling together the Stags Head session - I only got a chance to pop in quickly over Sat teatime but it certainly looks to be one of the highlights of the weekend and I know the landlord was delighted.

Really looking forward to seeing the pictures Gerry and huge thanks to Ani for taking them. I'll put the best ones up on the MySpace site and post here when I have done so

For me now its a question of seeing how the finances all pan out before we have our review meeting next week then I can sit and watch the 60 hors of TV programmes I've missed over the last 5 months!

Just adding our thanks Joe. Tom and I both had a great time, and were particularly impressed by the organisation, which was right up there with the very best. T

Thanks Tom - much appreciated. I always knew my being a control freak would come in useful one day!

I just wish I could seen more of everyones performances during the day. Luckily I did manage to catch Gerry's 'Braw Sailing' (beautiful) and Tom's God Speed (well what can I say?) in the afternoon - I was relaxed enough by the time Crucible were on to catch most of their set (fantastic - book them now) and John & Barry's (alternately sublime and hilarious as always)

On Sunday I caught up with the Old Spot Beers - probably a few too many - while we had some brilliant perfomances from local school children and more great local bands.

Hi again all

I am considering borrowing some of the kind comments here to include in a report about the festival to the Council, along with comments I have received through email and the evaluation sheets. Please let me know if you would prefer your comment not to be included in this report. I believe it will help in attracting funding for next year's event if I can evidence positive feedback

Cheers
Joe G

Gerry - Thank you very much for sharing such a great set of photos. The expression on Coope Boyes & Simpson's trio photo is priceless - what WAS Barry saying to the audience?

Wonderful day at Victoria Hall.

When I praised the music, food, beer on my evaluation sheet I forgot to highlight as well the face painting, the excellent sound quality & the cheerful and friendly stewarding - many thanks.

In a totally excellent lineup, of course the sublime Mr Tams and his partner Mr Coope stand out - but only just! We specially loved Crucible and Gerry McNeice & Co but were blown away in the graveyard slot by Pat Sharry and his pal with their delightful opening set.

Many, many thanks.

Thanks very much - I feel all warm and squidgy now - I'll pass on your kind comments to the stewards and others you mention who may not visit here.

I intended the day to be a reflection of the very best music from the north of England at the moment and, judging by the comments here, it seems that I may have suceeded.

I must admit the 'never again' feelings I had in the stressful weeks before the event are starting to fade.................

The worst moment was the Monday before the festival when I thought I didn't have an event licence that I found we needed - fortunately, after distractedly nearly running several people over on the way back from the meeting with the fire service, I found that the brewery had got the temporary event notice which we needed for the music as well as the bar!

Scary 30 minutes!

Can I just point out Joe it is the regulated entertainment that needs a licence. The fact that there might/might not be a bar is irrelevant.

Hi! from Captain Farrell. On the saturday afternoon I sang some songs upstairs at the Victoria hall easy room to sing in.I think there were some comments about lack of local poeple attending. Folkies find thing out for themselves but Jo public need signs on every lamp post as they are driving through the village.Even after ten years plus at Saddleworth Fest I still hear poeple saying I didn`t know it was on.
So I suppose one answer you can`t have to much publicity. Rgds. Captain Farrell

Hi - thanks for the comments and for coming to sing!

As an ex traffic engineer though I couldn't really approve of using illegal signs to advertise the festival lol!

The publicity does need some work though and I am sure we will have this sorted if we go for it again with more time to prepare
