Well, Nickp, as The Queen Elizabeth's High School (or, more correctly, 'Grammar School' as it was designated 'back then') is my old Alma Mater, and as I haven't set foot in there for at least forty years, I may well have to buy a ticket and turn up.

This annual Old Time Festival, for those who don't know, is an excellent, well-run event, and a perfect opportunity to hear (and take part in, if that's your wont) some great music. Be there or be a dope! :-)

I met Paul Brown at the Clifftop Festival in West Virginia in August. He won the banjo competition and came second in the fiddle out of a VERY strong field. He's met and played with many of the great old time musicians like Tommy Jarrell etc, and these days he's one of them!

Well, Banjo Ray, the unperforated stage does sound much superior. I know you guys will have a great time, I wish we'd be there with you.

If you're coming over this summer don't forget to get in touch and visit if you can. Also we'll be at Elk Creek, Fiddler's Grove, and Galax. I'm not sure yet about Mount Airy and Clifftop.

cheers

Looks like the Carrivick Sisters are turning out as festival goers, and Kieran Towers will be running a beginner fiddle workshop, so we're going to have at least one jam with some great young British players of Old Time music.

Can't wait...

Well it seems like it. Charlotte's now a very good clawhammer banjo player in addition to all the other instruments. I think she's also taken up fiddle, though Laura's still the main fiddler, mandolin etc.
Some nice Youtube's of them playing good Old Time.

No, Wendy won't make it as she has her head down trying to get her new album finished.

I think she finds all those banjos a bit scary as well!

I've managed to get this weekend free, so I quite fancy going to this. The only thing is, it's a bit late to try to book via snail-mail. Is there a way of booking on-line or can I pay at the door? I would be looking for a non-member weekend ticket with indoor camping.

You're not allowed in before 5.30pm. People will get in at all times after that, to eat, chat, play a few tunes etc. Concert starts at 7.30, I believe. I reckon I'll be there as soon after 5.30 as I can get!
