On Sat and Sun 10-11 April, there'll be a folk shindig taking place on the Lis, a boat moored on the Thames near Kew bridge.

It'll be a mixture of a house gig, a boat party and a folk night, as the boat is a decommissioned Polish icebreaker that has been converted into an eco-friendly four-bedroom houseboat. All sets will be entirely acoustic.

Mix of up'n'coming young folkies and singer-songwriter type stuff. Probably most of interest to Mudcatters will be Sam Lee (he of the Magpie's Nest), Olivia Chaney and Emily Barker. I'm also playing too by the way - I'll try to make my set nautical/boat-related. Maybe throw in some Thames songs...

It's all in aid of cancer research and they are only asking three pounds donation. (though I'm sure they'd be happy if you felt like giving more...)

Here's the facebook page:

Sounds an excellent way to spend the weekend. Pity it's so far from the backwoods of Lincolnshire!

I don't actually know the answer to that one myself just yet!
I'll post up again when I know more. I need to get the timetable off them too, apart from anything - I've no idea how long each set is supposed to be.

On the facebook page, they asked for proposals for workshops (presumably on the Sunday) too. Of a crafts/music bent, I presume.

Looking forward to seeing a full set from Sam Lee. I've only ever heard him sing the once - just 1 quick song a year or two ago at Magpie's Nest.

well I'm not organising it, but why don't you send them a facebook message? I'm sure they'd be interested.

They've just updated their facebook page, with details of who's playing on which day.

Annoyingly See Lee and Olivia are playing on the Sunday, and I'm on the Saturday. Was looking forward to seeing them play. I might ask very nicely for a transfer. What with there being floorspots on the Sunday, that would be the discerning folkie's day of choice. Though Emily Barker and her red clay halo band are always worth a listen.

Just thought I'd bring this back to general attention. Anyone in London this weekend, especially if the weather's as good as it's looking it might be, could do a lot worse than come along sat or sun afternoon.

The nearest stops are:

GUNNERSBURY (District Line) - 15 min walk
SOUTH EALING (Piccadilly Line) - 65 bus towards kingston, get off at Watermans arts centre stop
KEW BRIDGE (mainline station) - 5 min walk (4 per hour saturday only 1 per hour sunday)

Trains are handy for me - they go from Vauxhall to Kew Bridge.

All proceeds for a very good cause.

Sounds great - I used to live 100 yards from Kew Bridge but, unfortunately, am now a long way away.
