But the InAnyEvent website is now updated and includes Acoustak although they are unable to confirm as Ian the banjo player is away.

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Ah yes the singing kind is quite hard to get hold of! I am trying to persuade Dr Bob to attend, he is the master of the plasterscene and plays rather well too and flycatching master of the guitar solo is practising from his book as we speak and may well be with us.

and another late addition to the Anglesey Fest, Tony Smith and John his singing partner formerly Kick the Cat who used to be based in London, a fantastic addition to our list of performers. This due have a comic edge to their serious folk music and are a real delight.

Just a reminder, booked bands will play in the lounge bar and on-going sessions and singarouds will be either outside or in the dining room pending weather.

It's getting closer!!

Really looking forward to it. I believe there are still a few rooms left but still plenty of camping.

I am afraid that you will need your 'sat lav' as facilities same as last year, outside loo for night time emergencies and the lavatorial faculties in the hotel available all weekend. Jo keeps the doors open through the night if you wish to walk a little further for a warm loo seat without spiders!

Really looking forward to it. It was quite something last year to open my caravan door and watch the dolphins swimming by ( In the sea, not the camp site.). Then we all went to the hotel and ended up sitting outside on a balmy evening murdering folk songs as we had all had a little too much falling over juice. A real Plastered Scene.(Sorry).
If you haven't been before then this is about as laid back as music weekends get. Pre Madonnas need not apply.

My caravan was in the camp site which was on the land and the dolphins were in the sea which is conveniently very near the land, well next door really. The Hotel is also on dry land.

I'm very excited to find out that close by they'll be dolphins swimming with the Madonna & child (Welsh? I was thinking she was Greek) at a near by beach. Do they also sing?
I'm asking about the Dolphins, I'm sure that the Madonna & kid do some harmoonies together at night.

Translated into English this means. Small town just over the bridge with very little to offer apart from a ridiculously long name, a dysfunctional station and a large tourist shop full of fat American tourists.
Nice Place though. Turn Left just over the Britannia brigde.

Request from one of my young ones. Are we allowed to have a beach bonfire and sit around it massacring folk music? And perhaps throwing on the odd melodeon to keep the flames going. I know there is a harbour master and a life boat and stuff, don't want to upset the natives. (if you aint been before you can visit the life boat. It gets very lonely. And you can buy an RNLI pencil or something.)
As for Dave Roberts being of welsh extraction,NEVER, he was born in a pub in Wheelock and has lived in various pubs in Middlewich ever since !!!!

You can talk Bass Harmony! You come from a place so flat we have to give you an oxygen mask before you can walk to tesco!

I am under instruction that no folk music will be massacred at the Bull Bay Festival.

Burning of melodeons at your own risk.

No melodeons were harmed in the making of this thread.

It's true. I was born in the building next door to the Nag's Head in Wheelock (pronounced 'Willock')which is now an insurance company or something. In 1952 it was Sandbach Nursing Home and mothers-to-be went there to give birth.
It's also true that I have lived in various pubs in Middlewich ever since, but I have had a leek in each one, so I still qualify.

Fantastic, no campervans will need to be parked in layby's as there aren't any conveniently close - so drive right up to the hotel and up the little drive at the back and you will find more happy campers there!

No you don't need to book in advance! This is as much advance notice as we need!

Don't forget Bull Bay Hotel is a very highly recommended fish restaraunt! They also have great bar meals and very good chips!

Update, Acoustak may be with us Sunday and Tony and John from London based band Kick the Cat are definately joining us Friday and Saturday.

Sadly Picnic Area Andy and Wayne are unable to be with us.

I think there was also a festival at one of the bays we went to visit where the RNLI did a demo rescue and there was a bit of a street fair, but I was cross as the demo then turned into a water fight in the harbour and all the kids (and grown ups) on their boats were having lots of fun with water filled balloons then popping them, I couldn't help thinking about all the bits of non biodegradable balloon in the water! Didn't seem too eco-friendly to me!!

It's just occured to me that since we'll be in Wales, & Mr Roberts is Welsh, then my new Grappelli song should be done in Welsh a la Les Barker.

Unfortunately, I have no grasp of Cymraeg but can compromise by at least pronouncing all the double 'L' words in the Welsh way.

If you happen to hear me performing it, then it won't mean I'm attempting to clear my throat prior to imminent expectoration!!

BeddGelert is just down the road from Anglesey and it's there you can visit Gelert's grave ( honest )

Llewellyn and Gelert

Now Llewellyns doggie Gelert
Wouldn't hunt, or so they tell it
but he stayed at home that mornin'
by the fireside, tired and yawnin'
Was you ever see, was you ever see,
Was you ever see such a funny thing before

When the Wolfie he came callin'
and the baby started bawlin'
Gelert he sprang into action
leaving Wolfie needing traction
Was you ever see, etc

Prince Llewellyn he went wild
'cos he couldn't find his child
so he stuck his sword in doggie
'cos he felt rather grogy
Was you ever see, etc

But then he heard some cryin'
just as Gelert he was dyin'
and he found his baby lyin'
safe and sound amongst the ironin'
Was you ever see, etc

So now Gelert he is buried
By Llewellyn who is worried
what he's going to tell King John
about the queer things going on
Was you ever see, etc

apologies to Mr H

Piece of usless information for you, Pete Chopping( one time bass player with Skinners Rats)owned, and lived on, "The Pride Of Anglesea" which was the RNLI lifeboat at Bull Bay, built in 1904. It was a sailing lifeboat and later converted into a rather lovely live on boat.Legend has it that when he bought it, in Lowestoft, he then sailed down the East coast to the River Medway with an AA road map!

Good to see an East Anglian link (from Lost in the Mist) as we are travelling from Norwich.... how many are travelling further I wonder?

I am a quarter Welsh tho & will call in on family in N. Wales on the way over.Billybob's email very interesting as I, Val am from The Medway Towns (on the River Mudway) & Ral is from Lowestoft!

Pertaining to facilities! Water - I tried to send this earlier but Mudcat was off for a bit!

THere is an outdoor water tap at the back of the hotel so not in the camping field but a short walk about 50 yards. If you need any help moving water - let us know. On that point there isn't a point for getting rid of waste, but there is an outside loo, close to the back of the hotel, but facilities inside are available all weekend and through the night! As Mr Happy says, nothing is more than a 5 minute walk. The track is a little bumpy and you'll need a torch for night time, but that's camping! The views in the morning are well worth it!

Is there anyone attending that's headed back to the Manchester area after the festival that I can accompany & spilt travel expenses with? I can leave the festival after it's over or continue camping till Monday morn. I have a train ticket for Monday late afternoon but thought riding with someone might be more enjoyable for all around.
I'll be headed up that way to make my flight home on Wednesday morning.
In the meantime if anyone any has suggestions on "folk" musical events, clubs, venues, sessions or sings in the Manchester area that's going on this coming Monday &/or Tuesday, day or evening I'd be very thankful for your input as well as any places to bed & board (cheap) for those couple days.

I'll be able to check back here tonight & tomorrow morning, I don't think I'll be near a computer after that but will have my ears & eyes open & on at the festival

Thanks, see you tomorrow

It wasn't half bad wasn't it, but of course being that I have a hotline to him what provides the weather... all part of the service!

We have a date for next year, please put it in your diaries.

30th 31st July 1st August!

See you all then! (if not before!)

Thanks to Lizzie & all who had a hand in the festival & thanks to those that extended a welcoming hand. I had a great time espically meeting Mr Happy & Terrier. Jon do not do "Llewellyn and Gelert" as a duet with Mr Happy, you heard what he did with "Old MacDonold", he will turn your wonderfull ballad into a howl, no offense Mr Happy but you do have a way with a song. Tom It was a real pleasue & joy to meet & hear you, sorry to have put you under the spot light so many times but it was worth it Ha,ha.

Barry

Finally back in Norwich (via Keswick & York....must get satnav!) & can only reinforce what has already been said about what a great weekend it was in all respects, weather, food, drink but above all the friendly & talented company. Fantastic music from people of all ages has made me determined to master an instrument by next year (yes, I know it takes decades) & to bring musical family members too. (Will also gen up on Sid Kipper to bring a bit of Norfolk culture!)Thanks to everyone involved & see you next year.
