Subject: Keele Folk Festival Booklet
From: Dave Hunt
Date: 02 Dec 10 - 11:30 AM

The Keele folk festivals were held in 1965 & 66 at Keele University.
There was a booklet produced with lots of pictures - I can't remember if it was made for sale or was part of the programme for the second festival. There were many wonderful traditional singers present and there are some great pictures of them in the booklet. I was at both of the festivals and appear in the background in several of the pics. I'm trying to get hold of the booklet - or any other memorabilia of those festivals - which metamorphosed into the National Folk Festival - of blessed memory and sadly missed!
It was a revelation to a young singer like me, and I met people there with whom I'm still friends - and I'm sure there must be other Mudcatters who were there too.

I wasn't there in 1965 ... too young! But I have the booklet, which was published by Eric Winter's Sing magazine, and contained photos by Brian Shuel. Not so sure where the booklet is at the moment, but when I dig it out, I'll let you have a look Dave. i have a copy of the programme as well.

Many thanks Derek and Mike(?-Sam?)
I'd really like a copy for my folk memorabilia files. 'Files' is a bit posh! - I've actually got boxes of stuff going back to the v. early 60s, and I did say that when I retired I was going to sort and file it all - Ha! - I gave up my full time job 15 years ago and still not got round to sorting it all - but one day.....one day.........

There was another one in 1972/3. I was a student there and remember Nic Jones being on the bill

One in 75, I think. I saw Bernard Wrigley, Bill Caddick, Martyn Wyndham Reed amongst others - I was 26. It was the year probably the month I started floor spotting. Early summer.

I was a teacher in Brum. But from my first floorspot, i had the performing bug.

The Keele Festival, with its emphasis on traditional, as well as revival singers, moved around to Loughborough, back to Keele, back to Loughborough for many years and then, as the National, to Sutton Bonington. A different festival took place in Keele in the early/mid 70s, with Nic Jones and others - i was there, I remember!

In 1972 it was at Loughborough - I was there.
Had breakfast with the Spinners, Packie Byrne, Stan Hugill, Rosemary Hardman, Na Fili, Charlie Bate................
I forget who else.
Alex McEwen was there, a little under the weather.
And Isla StClair, aged about 18, I think.
I had a lovely time. I was 26 at the time.

Still no sign of a spare Keele booklet then??

They were all great festivals -particularly as the emphasis was on 'traditional' performers and I really miss the National for that reason - although High Bradfield has some good stuff these days. I'm sure some of the singing w'ends that various opeople organis must also have that sort of 'traditional' slant- an recommendations?

For want of a better home when we are "in the sky, Lord, by and by...", the Alumni Office at Keele University may offer a safe repository of archives or memorabilia or historical material - especially if it is from the students' perspective - if you fear your loft will be cleared out without knowledge of what your archives contain, please bear us in mind! There is definitely room for a new article on folk at keele.

Sidmouth has a traditional strand of programming, with John Howson as our advisor. We also have a venue specifically dedicated to the performances, talks, workshops etc from the traditional end of the spectrum.

Whitby FolkWeek, of course, is brilliant for the traditional programme and guests.

Dave

I was checking for some Keele festival info and found this old (well not so old thread. I also found the link to Brian Shuel's photos of the festival at

http://www.gettyimages.co.uk/Search/Search.aspx?contractUrl=2&assetType=image&family=Editorial&p=keele+folk+festival

I'm sure you must have seen these as well but in case not.

Not sure I'd recognise you from those days in the photos.
