Was anybody there?

Works for me fine. You being censored perhaps :-) ??

That male dancer at the start of the galleries sequence looks like Sam lee. Don't recognise any of the women. Not with their clothes off anyway. Shows I am getting old!

Perhaps I've set my filter to maiden aunt, aged nuns and smelling salts. It deprived me of a decent prickle eye bush joke anyhow.

Sadly I don't think Polly Mae will be appearing with them in Sheffield. I was at the QE Hall and it was a brilliant night. Hugely entertaining and very funny. Sam Lee doing Down In Cupid's Garden (with appropriately amended lyrics) was one of the night's highlights, a very clever skit on sexuality. At one point Jon Boden abandoned mics and came to the front of the stage to sing an unaccompanied version of Peter Bellamy's Australia, which was also remarkable. A terrific feel-good if somewhat bawdy night that surely confirms Bellowhead as Britain's best live band (though fans of Demon Barbers are, of course, entitled to disagree).

To be technical, that's not a stripper, it's a FAN dancer. Shades of Sally Rand!

Just returned home from a Bellowhead gig. No strippers but JB did throw his waistcoat off provocatively at one point. Some of the audience were looking a trifle hot as well. Great night though. Just what the doctor ordered.

Phil,

I think John throws his jacket off at the same point (in Flash Company)on each show! To a collective sigh (I think it is a sigh) from the female members of the audience......

This invariably includes my wife........Of course he is a much better fiddle player than me.......guitar player....concertina player....singer......

Not that I am jealous.

Life is a Cabaret, my friend.

(A bit like pre-war Germany, isn't it?)

Is this really where English trad music is going?

Anyone who saw some of the artists I saw in the sixties (and later) will know that it has already been there.

Johnny Handle used to strip. (A piano)

And a number of well-known folk stars took off their clothes at the drop of a hat so to speak.

I asked one lady "How many husbands have you had?" "Just two of my own" was the reply.

Ron Geesin also used to 'undress' the piano.
Whatever happened to him, he was great?

Jon could do a fine job on Tomorrow Belongs To Me. Judi Dench played Sally Bowles in the stage show, so perhaps Bellowhead should see if she is free to join them on tour this Summer?

Phil Beer said "Just returned home from a Bellowhead gig. No stripper."

According to the review of the Saturday gig on Froots, "Jon Boden remarked dryly after the burlesque stripper wiggled off in her G-string, "you don't get that kind of thing at a Show Of Hands gig." "

Do you think that was a challenge? ;-)

He is still around and completing his "Encyclopedia of Spanners". I sometimes see him and Frances when they come to Scotland.

Bruce Lacey and his "partner" both stripped at Cropredy around 1982 (something to do with mystic auras, getting in touch with the earth, ley lines etc). Said partner was VERY attractive!

The Folk Process later inflated this little display to "Hordes of naked hippies run amok at Folk Festival". I wish.

I have to tell you Sheffield City Morris - who practice in the building where "The Full Monty" was filmed - have indeed performed the dance from the aforementioned film.

It was at a Seven Champs weekend and when they threw their hats away there covering up their most intimate details were a set of morris bell pads.

Strippers? Been done mate.

To be announced to the press tomorrow. You heard it first on Mudcat.
