Fleetwood Folk Club Presents....

The Wyre Light Orchestra
in a special performance of...
Beware the Fylde Coast Sands
on
Thursday the 11th of December 2008
in
The Steamer Hotel, Fleetwood, Lancashire.

Admission £3 - all proceeds going to the RNLI

This is the third outing of this show, featuring the collective talents of Ross Campbell, Mikes France and Fairclough, Rachel McCarron, Tony Mason, Alan Middleton and Sean Breadin with libretto, art work and direction by Ron Baxter. First performed in the summer aboard The Jacinta, it also featured as a memorable part of The Fylde Folk Festival incorporating Miss McCarron's Standed - Lament of the Riverdance.

Hopefully we'll have a song up on the myspace page before the day's out, but it's not letting me do it just now. However, those who are interested may download this as a FREE MP3 (via YouSendIt) by clicking the link below:

Beware the Fylde Coast Sands

This is the opening song, performed by Ross Campbell (singing & anglo concertina) with Sean Breadin (Black Sea Fiddle) and the Gentlemen of the Chorus.

I think that just about covers it for now.

Flootweed.

I sing on this too - since when was I a gentleman of the chorus?

Anyway - do come along on the 11th - it's a great show which just keeps getting better. It also includes a slide-show featuring many Ron Baxter originals. Not to be missed!

The whole coastline from Southport up to Morecambe Bay is treacherous.Kevin Littlewood ( from Southport) wrote a great song about the Chinese cockel picking tragedy. Here is an audio clip of the song from the Bothy Folk Song Club Myspace website.

Alan Bell also has a very poignant song about the cockle pickers.

Correction to the above post - this performance is in aid of the Friends of Fleetwood Museum - a group of local people who support the museum in various ways. It is currently being run by volunteers under a Trust which took on the organisation after Lancashire County Council withdrew professional staff and threatened to close the museum in a cost-cutting exercise.

The museum was successfully run under this arrangement through 2008 and looks set to continue, with plans afoot for increased access to the Harriet, and other developments being considered.

Where did I get the idea it was in aid of the RNLI? Yes, of course, Ross is right - all proceeds to The Friends of Fleetwood Museum.

Otherwise, The Opening Song from the show is now up on the Fleetwood Folk Club Myspace Page so do stop by for a listen.

"..to the Harriet.." . The Harriet is the last example of the Fleetwood built 'smack' or sailing trawler. She is in a shed at the back of the museum waiting for money to arrive to restore her. There was an article in 'The Gazette' about 'Beware the Fylde Coast's Sands, on either Mon. or Tues.

Just found this The Fleetwood Motor Trawler Site - which makes for fascinating browsing. There's some info on the Marsh Hulks Here.

Just got round to listening to the opening song - thank you for the download. Lovely stuff - look forward to hearing more. I'm gutted I can't come over on the 11th - I have a ticket for the Watersons that night in Bury. Hope you continue to post info here about future performances. Manchester's not that far way, you know!

This thread title needs the spelling corrected to Fylde. Otherwise it won't show up in any future searches for Fylde related threads.

Beware the Fylde Coast's Sands

I hear they've refloated the dredger Abigail H - a fond & familiar sight around Fleetwood these past few months, she sank in Heysham harbour on November the 2nd, but appears to be doing well!

Abigail H at Fleetwood, October 2008

We don't have a song for her in the show yet though, unless Ron can write one in the next few hours. Email it to me, Ron & Rachel can put a tune to it when she gets in... Now there's a challenge!

I'll tell you the tale of the Abigail H
In Heysham harbour she did wait--
To sail out on the flood
Loaded up with silt & mud.
CH.
Yo, ho, ho, sad was the fate,
Of the dredger the Abigail H.
IB Your wish is my command!

Full of mud was her hold
But then alas, so I am told
Before the crew's very eyes
Abigail H she did capsize!

The Captain asleep in his bunk
Never knew his ship had sunk.
'Til on his matress he did float
Out of the porthole & his socks got soaked.

"Avast ye lubbers" They heard a shout
"Hands to the pumps lads & pump her out
As the Mary Ellen Carter she was saved
The Abigail H too she was raised

Great night; great performance; shame about Rachel's voice, but everyone was on top form. Afterwards we had the treat of hearing two of Fleetwood's finest traditional singers - Dick Gillingham and Dave Pearce...
