It sounds wonderful. I never (so far as I am aware) met Malcolm but his knowledge and scholarship were legendary. As Les said, an amazing man and a fitting celebration. Supporting worthwhile causes, too. I hope I can make it.

As long as I can get a passout for the day (it's a Sunday), I'll be there (and on Les's coach if there is one). There is altogether too much of this terminal flu going around, and Malcolm's early check-out touched me about as deeply as you can be touched by losing someone you've never met, spoken to or exchanged emails with - which is to say, pretty damn deeply. Malcolm was a dude of the first water; attention should be paid to such a man, and music made.

I'm sure there are a lot of Mudcatters who would like to share in this event.
Has anyone contacted Max or any of our technophobes to see if live streaming is possible via Mudcat/Facebook/YouTube. There must be something that can be done.

As Malcolm was wont to say: "More power to your elbow(s)!"

And if the technoPHILEs can turn this into a global event, that would be great.

It's just over a mile, so if you can walk that far: yes, if you can't: no.

About 20 mins, according to multimap
Station is on Sheaf Street, museum is S3 8RY (link not working)

Sadly, buses only help for a short way
some options

I know the times are out but it will give you some idea.

Easiest way on the feet is the tram from the station to Shalesmoor stop.
It's a five/ten minute walk from there.

Trams are every twenty minutes from the station. Around lunchtime on a Sunday they are at 53, 13, 33 minutes past the hour. Cost is £1.40. You can use an over-60 pass if you have one. A Dayrider (£3.00) does not save unless you need another journey on the day.

You need a maximum of five minutes to the tram from any aarival platform.

Don't know how I missed the earlier news of Malcolm's sad passing, but like many other Mudcatters, I have benefited from his encyclopaedic knowledge of folk music. I would love to come down for the event, but probalay will not be able to, owing to visitors coming that weekend.

Can I tell you that the organisers have arranged for the event to be recorded and filmed and that a CD and a DVD will be available at cost plus a small donation as soon as possible after the event. Money will be going to the charities which are already being supported.

I don't see how I can get to this - train from Edinburgh is five hours one way and nine hours the other, bus is nine hours both ways. 18 hours on the road with a titanium spring in my heart, forget it.

Bugger.

Is Sheffield that hard to get to from the south?

Brilliant do. Many Thanks to Ron and Jenny and Dave for organising this great event. Malcolm would have been proud. Oh, and thanks to Robin for leading the band. Ron ses we got 155 musicians.

Sorry I couldn't be there, but was thinking of you all, and of Malcolm, today.
I decided that a 200 miles round trip was too far for an afternoon- I don't have the energy any more to do so after working all week and yesterday, unfortunately.

Will this be an annual event??
