On Sunday we are committed to play at the Whitworth Rushcart for Wrigley Head so will have to miss Fylde for that day.

But I'd still like to thank Ron for posting this in good time - more than once now I've looked at "Who's Going To Blitherscrum This Year?" threads only to discover that Blitherscrum was in three days' time. Great if you're on the network, not so much use if the Mudcat is your network.

Really looking forward to it this year. Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer will be there, both on their own and with me as "Los Marbles". We'll be playing at the Boston, the North Euston, the Steamer and the Gasworkers' Club. B\est of all, our last concert on Sunday afternoon is at the main venue - Mariners' Hall -, appearing alongside Cloudstreet (and perhaps joining forces too) and the McCalmans... It doesn't get any better than this for me - four friends and three heroes together!

That'll be Ron, Rapunzel & myself as your genial hosts, though I dare say we'll let Ron take the helm as only Ron can in these situations.

The offical album won't be with us by then, alas, but last year punters enjoyed a Collectors Edition Live CD-R at a bargain price of £3 and I dare say something similiarly enthralling will be on hand this year, though we may have to up the price to £3.50 on account of unforeseen overheads!

With ref. to the 'Worst Singer in the World' competion, as the winner of the first two events I claim to have some knowledge of its history.
The standard of 'bad singing' has declined over the years, with the late Mary Smith's excruciating 'Rule Britannia' it reached it's zenith. Since then most winners have ranged from 'bad' to 'awfull' in fact some have been just about listernable too! Let's hope for some genuine bowel gripping, enteries this year.

One of the highlights is Sailor Ron Baxter's Heritage Walk, kicking of on the Friday at 3pm from The Mount. Whilst the details of each year's walk are a closely guarded secret, one hopes it will include opportunity for a performance of Lost by the memorial on the prom to all the Fleetwood trawlers lost with loss of life. Ron's masterful lyric manages to mention them all, and Ross's setting makes it a moving tribute that has gone out around the world - most notably perhaps in a stunning version by Fylde favourites Pint and Dale. Our version (Ross, Rapunzel & Myself) can be heard HERE and hopefully on the day...

Any chance of a lyric add, Ross??

Joe's mentioned his singarounds - there's lots of others too! The cream is the Sing Through Six at The Mount on Friday hosted by Camelia, and anyone around on the Thursday night should get themselves along to Sailor Ron's Sing in the Festival at The Steamer. For those of you who don't know, 'Sailor' Ron Baxter is the consummate host & singaround facilitator par excellence - and if we ask him nicely, he might just give us a rendering of Morecambe.

This year's round Fleetwood 'Heritage Walk' will take in the 'Goth's funnel', the Jubilee quay, both lighthouses, & the Euston Park. If it is raining 'cats & dods' [of course it never rains at Fylde] a talk on the history of the town will be given in the Mount Hotel.
Last year we had 62 on the walk, let's see if we can beat it this year. Assemble at the Mount Hotel at 15:00 on Friday, 3rd Sept.

A nice do indeed, although we had to split as Scolds Bridle were taking the stage owing to an early start for Rachel today. The Jacinta is Fleetwood's heritage trawler - the performance space is the massive fish-hold. As well as our wee set we did Lost with Ross (in a version which can be heard HERE) - one of Ron Baxter's finest lyics which accounts for every Fleetwood trawler lost with loss of life. Great atmosphere, great audience & a fine start to what promises to be another great festival.

Next up - Wednesday night at The Steamer with Fleetwood Folk Club...

Most regular Fylde festival goers will have memories of the unforgetable Theresa Tooley who sadly died from Motor Neuron Disease in January this year. A CD has been made entitled 'Theresa Tooley at Whittlebury Song & Ale'. This CD is produce by kind permission of Theresa's family, a compilation from the Whittleburt Song & Ale recordings made by Tom & Barbara Brown between 1991 and 2003. CD mastering and art work by Ken Hall of Sleights Whitby.

Maureen and I will be bringing some of the CDs to Fylde. We will be doing Singarounds in The Mount on Friday night Saturdaay morning, Saturday night and Sunday lunchtime in the New Victoria, other than that we will most likely be found lurking in the bar at the Marine Hall most nights till late.

Included in the CD are some of Therasa's best song like 'Captain Valiant', Teddy Bears Rave-up' and 'Joan the Leather Queen'.Eighteen tracks in all each one a gem. The CD is a steal at £8 and the whole of the proceeds got to The Motor Neuron Association

Great sings indeed, Sooz - tonight at The Steamer will be a good one one too - and don't forget The Survivors Sing tomorrow night.

Excellent weather so far although there was a few drops of rain on my window half an hour ago, even as I sit here doing a cassette (remember those?) of my old Bob Roberts albums for Jim. No finer way to start the day really.

It's been a ball so far, as usual - Demdyke was another roaring success, packing out The Mount & selling out all of the CD-Rs, before Rachel & I raced across town for The Big Sing. Strange to say that I've never heard the Wilsons before - that's a sweet noise for sure! Also yesterday was Poems, Pints & Potboilers at 10.30am in The Steamer - which was more of a coffee morning with various rolls of wrecks & rescues and poaching tales. Thanks to everyone who supported this & hopefully see you all next year!

We've got In the Tradition this morning & some storytelling this afternoon (weather permitting) and the Steamer Sing tonight, where I've a mind to field M'Ginty's Meal an Ale if I've got any voice left at all.

Thoroughly enjoyable once again - even the Red Arrows put in an appearance.

Were the numbers down on last year? I normally judge the attendance by the length of time taken to get served at the various bars, and this year it was quick (not a complaint BTW, merely an observation).

Distinct lack of youth in the audience - at least at the events I attended. Pity.

Numbers must have been down, the final concert had loads of empty seats all the way to the end, I have not been since 2006 but all the ones I went to before that you had to queue for ages to be guaranteed a seat in the final concert. A shame. I think the line up was not as exciting as the line ups used to be. Still had a great time though.

First comment after planning through the programme was that it looked a little thin, because of a general lack of wishing to be in two/three places at once, but decided that this was just individual taste, rather than any lack of top talent. As the partial list above shows (where's George?). We didn't spend half so much time as usual scurrying from venue to venue trying to fit everyone in, but perhaps that meant we actually heard somewhat more music if at fewer venues!

I even sat through the final concert, whereas in some previous years I've given it a miss because lack of interest in guests, heat or excessive noise levels - no complaint this time. I'd agree that it wasn't as packed as usual, which at least kept the temperature down.

I thought it was excellent again this year and enhanced by decent weather for a change!
In particular I saw more of the "Fringe" in the Steamer etc (probably because I was booked to take part)and also enjoyed the late night cabaret on friday/saturday nights. The latter provides a great opportunity to see a sample of many of the Festival guests in one venue who would otherwise be missed.
Anyway, thanks go to Alan and Christine Bell and ALL the dedicated folk who make this a great FOLK festival each year.
Looking forward to next year already!

Pleased to say the festival was a success: numbers weren't down - we feared that the economic climate would give us problems but not so. Final concert attendance is often reduced by early leavers. School starting in September affects this to a degree. We feel this caused some reduction in 'youth' this year. However, the New Generation Concert was as strong as ever compered by the gorgeous and talented Niamh Boadle.

And the Urban Folk Quartet...What a performance.

Is it over? Could well be - Charley's visit extended the occasion by a couple of extra days with the good weather continuing - although it doesn't look so good for the Blackpool fireworks tonight. We had a good one anyway & thanks to everyone who supported us and for making DEMDYKE! even more of a success than last year. For those who wanted a disk please contact me at sean@sedayne.co.uk - hopefully there'll be something downloadable at Folk Police soon too. Otherwise, happy to say Demdyke's Mother Carey's Chicks features on the forthcoming exconfd volume of John Bareycorn Reborn - the wonderfully titled We Bring You a King With a Head of Gold - along with Rapunzel & Sedayne's Robin Sick & Weary and Sedayne:Sundog's Names of the Hare.

So - great festival, great music, great people, great weather - only one sour point but we won't go into that; rest assured the folk scene is too small (& life too short) for such grudge bearing & unprevoked hostility. Excellent thriving singarounds hosted by Ron, the lovely Norma and Lynn, Spitting on a Roast and special mention must be made of the redoubtable Joe Boe who stepped into Penny Black's shoes with customary panache (get well soon, John - our thoughts are with you). Thanks to Derek Gifford for making The Big Sing & In the Tradition the memorable sets they were; to Niamh Boadle for truly exquisite musicianship; to Jim Diamond for moving me to tears with his reconstruction of High Barbaree; to Sally for keeping me enthralled for hours in the Marine Hall bar; to all at The Steamer and The Mount for great food & hearty welcomes; to Simon for the sound; to Dave Jones for being the cosummate MC; and to Alan Bell, Rusty, Stu and everyone on the commitee, without whom...

See you next year? Let's hope so!

Yes indeed - HUGH DIAMOND - Where did I get Jim from? Apologies! A diamond geezer indeed.

A long time friend of Fylde, and a performer with his own take on a song.

We were pleased to have him join in our Mount Musicians' session.

Jim Diamond (Hi Ho Silver Lining - the theme tune from "Boon" with Michael Elphick) is related to Hugh. Can't speak to Jim's qualities in that respect, but Hugh Diamond is a rare treasure of the folk world, and it was great to see him on form. In the days long ago when my house was accessible to visitors, he was one of (I think) about seven guests under my roof for the festival week-end. I wish I had the space again!

Hmmmm - an autumn project maybe? Otherwise, The Mount Pavilion is open tomorrow, along with other Fleetwood landmarks - Farmer Parr's included - if you fancy it...

Just a final word on Fylde '10. I am assured tht Alan Bell has booked the same weather for Fylde 2011.
