Just winding down from a hard night of pre festival activities with a bottle of Westons Bottle Fermented Cider and Zoox MySpace. 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?!

I just want to retire so I can spend all my time finding and supporting new music! A few years left yet though!

Thanks for the review, Paul and pleased it was all a great success.

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?

There's not much folky on on Sunday but you would be most welcome of course - Mat Walklate is the only folk act planned that day at 2pm.

I will do some research on Zoox!

Joe,

Glad Friday night went well for yourselves and Brother Crow and that your party on Saturday had decent Ale!

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.

and yes, you should book Zoox for something, they're really special.

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.

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

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: 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 here from KFFC Website via PayPal. Or contact me at KFFC email kffc@live.co.uk

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.

Feel free to strut your stuff!

Sorry we can't make it, Paul - we have a friends birthday do here in Bradford - have a great weekend - Edwina Hayes was superb at Raggalds last night so her afternoon spot on Saturday will be one not to miss. She drew our biggest crowd yet and everyone seemed to really enjoy her sets and Gerry Cooper's admirable support (& PA).

We'll get there sometime - looking forward to seeing you & One Stone in March

Joe
