Just coming down to earth at last.
A truly memorable weekend, plus extensions before and after! The atmosphere was wonderful, a little bit of M....n still remains.
Thanks to all who came and supported what looks like a permanent fixture on the Folk Map.
Loads of photos still to sort but two nights of Morris and a Local fun day to help with, before we get a chance!!

We have red kites, Valmai--but you'd know those, I dare say. Also peregrines.

Nah. Wasn't a kite. Smaller than the buzzard. We wondered if it might be a peregrine.

Fantastic weekend. Lots of lovely music, met old friends, made new ones and it only rained at night.

Many thanks to the organisers.

An absolute blast from start to finish. Heard lots of good music, played some of it, met plenty of old friends and made some new ones, drank lots of jolly good beer.

Blissfully good weather and a charming setting. I saw a buzzard and another bird of prey I couldn't identify over the trees round the camp site one afternoon.

Someone whose tastebuds I trust, and who like me was weaned on Harveys, recommends Goddards beer. This is important purely because I need a decent pint as a prop in a song, you understand.

What's the weather forecast, anyone?

Right - we've just got our timetable. We'll do the first group of tunes on Saturday and the second on Sunday.

I look forward to trying the local beers, having fond memories of a barrel of Burts which squirted hops over the ceiling and the Squire during a Chingford Morris Ale in the summer of 1976. As I remember, he was forced to stand with his finger in the spile-hole for a considerable length of time, an indignified position for a teetotaller. Alas, Burts is no more, but I'm sure we can find some good alternatives. What do the locals recommend?

Now printing the music for our concertina part-playing sessions. We're definitely doing arrangements of

The Speaking Figure (William Winter MS)
Southrepps Hornpipe (Albert Hewitt, Suffolk)
and Foul Weather Call (Sussex).

In case we need more we're also bringing Galopede, Lord Nelson's Waltz (Jackson) and Galloway Girth (Sussex).

Because I'm a great believer in being prepared, we'll also bring spare copies of half a dozen or so arrangements we did for Whitby last year.

Tootle pip,

Valmai

Campsite opens Thursday afternoon 5 p.m.
Remember that Haven Street is a working steam railway. The FolkStation site is across the tracks so there is no vehicle access while the trains are running.
Make sure you arrive before 10 a.m. or after 5p.m. if you need to get your car etc. on to the campsite.
There is a large car park and pedestrian access all day of course.
There must be a blues song about singing on the wrong side of the tracks?

Keith and I were on the Isle of Wight last weekend (Hi Andy and Jillie and everyone else) and we had a great time. Lovely people, lovely music. You will be royally taken care of and you will enjoy yourselves.
