Subject: WHAT'S ON IN YORKSHIRE/LANCASHIRE ?
From: Soldier boy
Date: 28 Jun 09 - 09:41 PM

I live near the border between Yorkshire and Lancashire [ in the Colne Valley on the west side of Huddersfield ] therefore I can flit easily between the two counties quite easily.

I love the folk scene and there always seems to be a lot going off on the folk scene in this neck of the woods and thought we should take pride in this and promote it to a wider audience - here!

So what's going on near you ? - certainly no 'Wars of the Roses' as we all seem to get on very well nowadays. Thank goodness.

So now we are all friends and good neighbours let's share our knowledge and get together to enjoy all the festivals/folk clubs/acoustic and singing sessions/workshops/morris dancing events etc etc near you.

Let's fly the flag for this wonderful region of England and take real and justified pride in what we have to offer.

Over to you!

Kirkby Fleetham Folk Club, North Yorks Saturday 4th July.

To celebrate (!) American Independence day on 4th July we're having a bit of a party.

3 quality acts that walk the line between British Folk and Americana:

Doghouse Roses: Glasgow-based duo, folk/country/blues with a Celtic twist and one of my favourite bands! (Doghouse Roses MySpace)

The Troubadours: OK, they've crossed the line, intense acoustic country rock sound coupled with some intelligent lyrics.

Cliff Healey: Well known to those in the North Yorks/ Teesside / Cleveland area for his classic renditions of British & American songs.

Barbeque and singaround from 4pm with the acts from 7pm.

LICENSED BAR!

All this for £5!

Kirby Fleetham Village Hall & Green. Northallerton, North Yorks, DL7 0SH

There is a weekly folky night at the Thompson Arms in Flaxton
Good way to spend a Wednesday evening if you are that way out.
Thursday is a good night to go to Loftus and join in at the Station Hotel.
The also run a hiring fair on some Sundays but you would have to check that on MY Space.
Is that the sort of thing you meant?

Hi Banjiman
Is the Black Swan Folk Club close by to Scarborough? Ken Schatz & I will be arriving for the Seafest on the 22nd & would be tickled to taken in an evening at a folk club. I'd love to catch Wendy Arrowsmith after hearing her name being tossed about with such pleasure.

Thanks

Barry

Hi Barry,

The Black Swan is in York,which is about 30 miles/ less than an hour from Scarborough. Your mates 2 BS & an S are threatening to be there as well!

It would be really cool to catch up with if you can make it. This is a band gig (Blind Summat!, so you will get more than just Wendy (which may or may not be a good thing!!!). Are you sorted with somewhere to stay on the Thursday Barry?

Soldier Boy, Otley is 17th-20th September. We'll be there!

You should get yourself over to Cropton, it's going to be great fun!

Thanks for trhat info Banjiman.
Cropton. I searched mudcat & googled it & came up with "zip". What is is it, where is it & when is it?

2 Black Sheep & A Stallion have us cared (thanks for the prompting of an offer) for up until the Seafest & then the Seafest has us till it's over. So if they're threatening to go we'll hopefully be in their pockets.
It would be great for us to meet up with you & any Mudcatters while we're in the area or any where for that matter.

Thanks for the heads up.

Barry

Thanks Banjiman, I just found the thread you started on Cropton, don't know why it didn't come up my 1st time around. The date doesn't fit, we'll be back home waiting to read reports on the festival a few days before it gets started. Thanks again though for having our musical health in mind.

Why not try the venue I book artists for - Raggalds Acoustic.

Great music & relaxed atmosphere, great restaurant - close to Halifax & Bradford & not too far from anywhere else - and the music is free!

Raggalds Acoustic

Every Friday night apart from last 2 weeks of August - I need a rest!

Cheers

Don't forget good people that it's Saddleworth Folk Festival this weekend, 17 - 19 july '09.

Based in Uppermill,Saddleworth,Lancashire, this is one special festival. Very strong in the concert line-up and very strong in the presence of 'the fringe' with lots of very well attended singarounds and musician sessions in the local pubs and clubs all weekend.

I've been going to this festival for more years than I care to remember and I can't wait! Hope to see you there.
