Looking forward to seeing you and Sally...

and a special event for this year that Richard has mentioned a ballad workshop with Gordeanna and Anne.....on Sunday. Places are limited and it is not covered by the weekend ticket. I have been a couple of their ballad workshops and it is not to be missed.

We will of course have all the usual sessions in the pubs and the now legendary Sunday afternoon concert compared by Norman Stewart.

As for the midgies or indeed midges playing bohrans; well its traditional ****BG****

Have we got a late night Sunday session planned for this year, Diva?

It was absent for two or three years but it was nice to have it back last year.

I do wish I could come - frankly Sheila Stewart is much more of an attraction than the Lord Mayor (who actually is not all bad - a real ale freak for example) but needs must.

Dave....Sheila Stewart was wonderful. Can the Lord Mayor sing?

A busy but tiring weekend. Thanks to all the guests and to all who worked so hard to make it happen.
