Subject: KFFC Winter Warmer Weekend 20th-22nd Feb
From: Banjiman
Date: 10 Dec 08 - 06:18 AM

After the success of the 2007 Winter Warmer & The Big Birthday Bash we have great please in bringing you the 3rd KFFC weekender…….. Winter Warmer Weekend 2. This event will run from Friday 20th February to Sunday 22nd February 2009.

Tickets: Friday £9, Saturday £12, Sunday £5………or full weekend for £20. That's 9.5 hours of quality acts and 11 hours of singaround (+ singing comp) for £20!!!!!

Tickets available from KFFC Website   via PayPal from December 15th. Or contact me at KFFC email .

Food, camper van space (free) and real ale bar all available as usual.

Some truly wonderful acts

The draft line up is:

Friday 20th Feb.

6.00pm to 8.30pm: Big Welcome Sing. Feel free to strut your stuff!

8.45pm - Sarah McQuaid
"Sarah's voice is both as warm as a turf fire and as rich as matured cognac while her guitar playing throughout should be a lesson to anyone unconvinced of the instrument's role in traditional music.." Geoff Wallis & Sue Wilson - The Rough Guide To Irish Music

10.00pm - Zoox
"Be prepared for a fabulous array of instruments from contrabassoon to congas.
Exciting arrangements, great musicianship and infectious energy typify the performances of Zoox in a show which is guaranteed to entertain and enchant."


Saturday 21st Feb.

11.00 a.m.-3.00p.m.: The Big Sing

3.00pm- TBC! Good traditional singing!

4.00pm - Edwina Hayes
- 'A wonderful young woman, so gifted and full of song, with a voice as sweet as the angels' Nanci Griffith

5.30pm - More singing!

7.45pm – Barbara Helen
"Barbara is possibly one of the finest solo singer / songwriters we have had the pleasure of seeing perform in a long time. Barbara quite literally puts her heart and soul into her performance - beautiful, inspiring and enchanting."

9.00pm – One Stone (Rebekah Findlay & Wendy Arrowsmith)
"What's all the fuss about? I will tell, both REBEKAH & WENDY, gave outstanding, stunning performances live to the world, two hours of beautiful music and singing from a professional and very talented duo." Terry Ferdinand, Bishop FM Folk show.

10.15pm – Sara Grey & Kieron Means
"Once you have heard Sara Grey you will never forget her. She has a certain quality of voice that compels you to give her your undivided attention. Her voice is both powerful and sweet with a distinctive and lovely tremolo. It is a voice well suited to native American ballads and ballads of Ireland and Scotland."

Sunday 22nd Feb

11.00 a.m. – The Big Sunday Sing

1.15 p.m. – Rudeigin
"Great playing and singing from this Scottish five piece"

2.15 p.m. – Two Black Sheep & A Stallion

4.00pm – Sing until it is finished!!

Look forward to seeing you here in February.

Paul & The Gang.

Thanks Pete,

....and a merry Christmas to you and yours too.

You can now purchase tickets from me (send a cheque to the address on the website) or via PayPal......buy now buttons will be on the website today/ tomorrow.

This is to the world in general not the Kelk Brigade

I have a slight dilemma in that quite a few people who said they were coming to the BBB and asked for tickets to be saved backed out at the last minute or didn't turn up.......I had given out messages asking people not to travel if they didn't have tickets. This meant our numbers were down.

Would it be unreasonable to ask people to buy their tickets in advance? I'd rather not save tickets without the money having being paid up front......... but don't want to be unreasonable or put anyone off!

Let me know what you think.

Thanks

Paul

Not quite sure at the moment, Paul. Following on the death of Jools' dad, I've just been handed the lovely Christmas present of a redundancy notice. Hey, it never rains etc.

We'll have to see how things stand in the new year but it certainly looks like another great line up - and we really do need to get out and have a bit of a sing soon.

Good luck with this, Paul. It looks like a good 'un.

It doesn't seem unreasonable for folks to pay for tickets if they say they want them. Then, if they really can't make it closer to the time you haven't lost out financially. If, however, you manage to sell the unexpectedly spare capacity to any waiting list, you can refund the money*. That seems much more fair than reserving tickets on a no-risk-to-the-punter basis.

*And it doesn't seem unreasonable to subtract any expenses incurred, like bank/Paypal charges and/or postage.

Oh, and happy Christmas to you and and the happy KffCers!!!

Convert? I think "Committed" as in "She should be....." is more like it!.

Banjiman, Maggie came to GFC last evening. We swopped banjo jokes all evening. :-)

See you soon,

John,

That is really good news.... ticket sales are not going well compared with the other weekends we've put on.

We need all the support we can get or Club funds will be totally wiped out! I'm hoping (in a strange way) that it is the recession and not the line-up / event?

Becks,

It would be better if I can have the money and give you the tickets up-front. It means I sleep better..... and I had my fingers burned last time round as people who said they were coming din't and I'd told others it was sold out....... so they didn't come. As you know we ended up with empty seats!

Thanks

Thank you Guru, it would be great to see you one day!

Joe, glad Friday with Edwina went well for you, I'm sure she will be excellent at KFFC as well. We look forward to seeing you in March.

Stallion, good news that your fan club is coming over from Scarboro'

BBP, I hope it was the round end and not the sharp end of Oombanjo that you bumped!

Tickets are still trickling out.... we are limping towards the break-even figure (which is a good result given current economic situation). If a few more could be persuaded it would really help the future of the club.

Just a refresheer on what's happening:

Food, camper van space (free) and real ale bar all available as usual. Handy local B & Bs (details at KFFC website) and indoor camping for £5 per night. B & B in local homes available (now v.limited) for £20 per night.

6.00pm to 8.30pm: Big Welcome Sing.

Feel free to strut your stuff!

8.45pm - Sarah McQuaid
"Sarah's voice is both as warm as a turf fire and as rich as matured cognac while her guitar playing throughout should be a lesson to anyone unconvinced of the instrument's role in traditional music.." Geoff Wallis & Sue Wilson - The Rough Guide To Irish Music

10.00pm - Zoox
"Be prepared for a fabulous array of instruments from contrabassoon to congas.Exciting arrangements, great musicianship and infectious energy typify the performances of Zoox in a show which is guaranteed to entertain and enchant."

9.00pm – Sara Grey & Kieron Means
"Once you have heard Sara Grey you will never forget her. She has a certain quality of voice that compels you to give her your undivided attention. Her voice is both powerful and sweet with a distinctive and lovely tremolo. It is a voice well suited to native American ballads and ballads of Ireland and Scotland."

10.15pm – One Stone (Rebekah Findlay & Wendy Arrowsmith)
"What's all the fuss about? I will tell, both REBEKAH & WENDY, gave outstanding, stunning performances live to the world, two hours of beautiful music and singing from a professional and very talented duo." Terry Ferdinand, Bishop FM Folk show.

My review (for what it is worth!)

2 weeks ago I'd only sold 25 tickets and was extremely worried that the recession was biting or I'd booked the wrong acts.... or done something else wrong.

I really should have some faith in the pull of quality music and our friendly club..... people came from all over the place; Brighton, Suffolk and all over the north.

The singarounds were of real quality with a number of potential future guests discovered.....I'd pull out the fabulous Old Time banjo playing of John Yeaman and David Dry as highlights (but then I would wouldn't I!), I'm assured the guitar playing & singers from others was excellent as well..... what would I know.

Friday night's stage entertainment started with the silky smooth Sara McQuaid, beatiful singing and she really is the master (mistress?) of laid back DADGAD gutiar playing. The audience warmed to her charming chat as well.

Then came Zoox.....why aren't these girls absolutely massive? They set the place alight with their virtuoso playing of traditional and other tunes on their eclectic collection of instruments. The contra bassoon is an unlikely folk instrument but adds real depth to the bassline of the Zoox sound....expertly done! Some good singalong songs as well......the crowd absolutely loved them, clapping, stomping and singing along and baying for more at the end of the set. They are such lovely people too and appeared to have a great time themselves, an organisers dream in fact! We'll be having them back then!

Saturday started in a laid back way with some more excellent floor singing and playing with a good crowd steadily building..... first up were the token blokes for the day (Friday and Saturday acts were all ladies...apart from Sara Grey's son Keiron) .... 2 Old Bouys with a fine unaccompanied set of shanties and other sea songs, presented with enough testosterone to make up for the ladies to follow. Hearty stuff!

Edwina Hayes arrived in the nick of time following some slight confusion over slot times (sorry Edwina!). Her mixture of traditional English & American traditional songs and her own Americana tinged creations found a willing audience. She really does have a lovely voice. I'm not surprised Nancy Griffiths has picked up her co-written (with Clive Gregson) song "Pour Me A Drink" it really is a classic of the genre.

More floor singing/ playing escapades followed ....and much drinking! Then Saturday evening arrived......... Barbara Helen is a local(ish) singer songwriter and a lovely guitarist. She presented some of the songs from her recently released debut album "An Unfamiliar Place" and won a lot of new friends. She has a gentle, warm style that wraps you in cotton wool while she ponders on love and life. Highly recommended!

Then the main event....Sara Grey and Keiron Means (on early so they could catch their plane to the states at 8am on Sunday morning from Edinburgh). A fantastic array of American songs ranging from some great guitar powered blues by Keiron to wonderful old times classics from Sara and her banjo. Masterful playing and singing from both of them and some great singing along from the packed audience. Very knowledgeable intros and great audience rapport as well. Pretty much perfect!.....I wish I could play banjo with Sara's subtle touch.........

So, "One Stone" (that's Wendy Arrowsmith & Rebekah Findlay) found themselves "promoted" to the last act of the evening.... with the tough job of following rather than preceding Sara & Kieron. They told me beforehand that they were nervous, but you wouldn't have known it. They also pointed out that it was actually their first gig as an official duo (though they have worked together a lot as part of Blind Summat! and backing each other at their solo gigs). I usually try to avoid commenting on Wendy's work in public (as I am married to her I could quite rightly be accused of bias)..... but several of the audience independently approached me and said that their set was the highlight of the weekend. I'm going to break my own rule....... excellent interpretations of traditional songs, some lovely self penned material from both of them ..... and Beck's stunning cover of Richard Thompson's classic "Beeswing" .... I've never heard it done better. Good playing on guitar, fiddle and accordion (only 3 instruments tonight, they're slippng!) and beautiful vocal harmonies...... make your own mind up.......
One Stone My Space . Bias, me???? Probably!

Sunday started mellow in the singaround Pete Gostelloe (spelling?) providing some beatiful slide blues....just perfect for a Sunday morning. Things warmed up when Rugeigin (Rugeigin Myspace ) hit the stage....great tunes and singalongs.... superb twin fiddling, good singing and a nice bouncing baseline. Thoroughly enjoyable and well aprreciated by the Sunday lunchtime survivors. Catch them somewhere near Stonehouse in Scotland or somewhere near you soon. They actually picked up 2 gigs while practising on Sunday ,morning in the hotel where they stayed ..... pretty good going I reckon!

2 Black Sheep & A Stallion were the last official act of the weekend.....this was their hatrick, having made it to all the KFFC weekend bashes to date. Fine, robust 3 part harmonies with a big emphasis on audience participation. Stirring stuff!

We then had our first traditional singing competition..... keenly contested by 8 excellent performers offering a great selection of songs with a performance slot at KFFC as the prize. As I say some great performances with an honourable mention to Peter Taylor but also a clear winner......agreed by all the judges (having looked at their scoring sheets)..... a fine "Sean Nos" song in Gaelic "Amhrain Mhainse" from Andy Broderick . Audience loved it.....you could have heard a pin drop when he finished.

A bit more singing and that was it ...... only down side was the cask beer had run out by tea time on Saturday (I had to order the beer 2 weeks ago, at that stage I had only sold 25 tickets!) I'll have more faith and do better next time though.

Thanks to all who contribute to the weekend (Jen 'n' Wen for running the cafe, Glyn & Zeke for mcing, Lee for the superb sound and all the volunteer bar staff and Joolz for forcing people to buy the all important raffle tickets)....and our wonderful audience and acts.

We made enough money over the weekend to put the club in a very healthy state for the rest of the year and beyond.... we can continue our mission to bring the finest folk and acoustic music to the wilds of North Yorkshire.......fab!

If you weren't here, you missed a treat.

Paul

Glad it was such a success Paul - a few names to look out for there - Zoox sound particularly interesting and of course looking forward to seeing One Stone at Raggalds Acoustic on 20 March. At least the party I went to had real ale so that was some compensation for missing the weekend.

I'm hoping we have a similar late turn out for Queensbury on 7/8 March as our own ticket sales have been remarkably slow given the superb line up and bargain prices.

We'll try and make Queensbury on the Sunday...... we have a booking on the Saturday so won't make that (and we're out on Friday night, so I can't promise). I'll see what else we can help with re publicity for it as well.

We also had Sarah McQuaid (at Twick last night) and would like to echo your comments and give her an unreserved thumbs-up. She would grace many a folk club (and probably will once the word gets round). A captivating performance, great songs, playing and singing. She was also totally professional, charming and low maintainance. What more could you ask for?

You are right, Paul, they sound very special indeed - hope they come up this way soon again - will try to catch them at the Topic on 5 March but there will probably be some last minute crisis to attend to!

Isn't the internet great sometimes?!
