So how was it for you???

I'd just like to use this opportunity to thank everyone who took time to listen to Rapunzel & I; to those who made DEMDYKE! the roaring success it was; and to those hardy souls whose appreciation warmed my storytelling sets despite the worst the weather could throw at us! To everyone we met with waves and smiles, and to all the singers, hosts, and stewards, who make this such a wonderful place to be.

To those who said how moved they were by our new trio version of the wonderful R. Baxter / R. Campbell composition Lost (which we featured on a few opportunities over the festival, but the central performance was by the memorial to the lost trawlers and fishermen on the promenade during Ron's Heritage Walk on Friday) it's playing on the Fleetwood Folkclub Myspace Page.

See you next year, if not before.

Sedayne.

It was great for me too, although I missed some of the acts because of my stewarding hours. Despite the weather everyone seemed to have a smile on their face!!! Even the steward whose tent was damaged by the wind when putting it up. He went home, but, being a folkie, he was back on Satuday!!
Great Fest.

I spent most of the weekend leaning at an angle of 60 degrees to counter the wind (this became 45 degrees after a few pints), but the weather couldn't spoil another great Fylde weekend.

Many thanks to all involved.

We wussed out this year and stayed in a hotel!
Highlights were Elbow Jane, Dougie MacLean (Of course!) and the Broughton Brothers who we also had a few most enjoyable beverages with after their set at the Steamer! Methinks their Sunday lunchtime set was something of a challenge though!

We had a fantastic time again this year despite the "..windy old weather, stormy old weather ....". Thanks to all who always make it great - too many to name but you know who you are. I'd like to thank Stu for each year trying to teach me to play my guitar and also for trying to encourage me to move up to the next group (hee hee)!!! One day Stu eh? I'll keep trying - and practising - promise.

I loved Shep Woolley's sets and am sorry that I didn't get to the singarounds though most people would be grateful for that!!! I loved the DEMDYKE Performance at the Mount and can't wait until the CD is released. Les Barker and Dougie MacLean were my highlights although the Survivors Session on Monday night took a bit of beating too. Some smashing performances, notably the lady who sang Caledonia with the guitar accompanist och wow!

Thanks to all again see you next year we've bought the tickets!!!

Love and peace Mairsea and Naemairsea XOXOXOXOXOXOXXX

Och wow indeed; the guitarist was Bruce Hogg (page 24 of your souvenir programme!) & the singer was his wife, whose name escapes me, but I believe she's the daughter of Charlie, whose fine singing could be heard in the singarounds over the weekend.

We're back in The Steamer tonight for our regular Thursday night sing, although rumour has it that the lady with the hammer dulcimer has hung around to make it. I certainly hope so - especially as the weather here in Fleetwood right now is all blue skies & sunshine!
