Subject: Ozcatters @ 2011 National Folk Festival
From: Sandra in Sydney
Date: 28 Mar 11 - 06:31 AM

well, it's on again in a few short weeks! Starting with Folk Schools on Mon 18th - ending Tues 26th, the National Folk Festival

who will be there, & more importantly where will we meet for the obligatory Ozcatter photo opportunity?

If you need a Ozcatter badge, Bob Bolton will probably be able to make them again - PM your address to me & I'll post it as we've had trouble in the past getting badges to catters at the National.

The usual suspects will be at Hrothgar's hymn session on Sunday, the best singing session in the whole festival Ozcatters @ Hymn session, 2010 We will also be raising a glass of Dr Jamison's best in memory of Rowan who died late last year chorus line @ Hymn session - Rowan in green shirt As you can see it's not a churchy event.

Some of us will also be at the Folklore conference at the National Library on Thursday - 2010 Folklore session

Last year Ross Campbell visited from the UK - this year George Papavgeris is on the program, but who else will be there?

I will be there too - also Maria from the chorus-line hymn-singing photo linked above, which escapade she instigated. Maria (also a founding Shiny Bum Singer) has not yet worked out how to be a Mudcatter, but is obviously a fellow-traveller.

For those unsure about attending this truly best singing event at the National - fear not, for I bring tidings of joy to all who would by the fourth day of the festival sing in good company a well-constructed song about anything. There are even rumoured to be a few Christians who turn up to keep an eye on the atheists.

I didnt know about the cancer issue and I totally understand the donation of his skeleton to Science. It was just so typical! I added a line or two on that thread but it really doesn't express how saddened I was and still am on hearing this news.

Fortunately ... the cioccolata tradizionale stall did not make a reappearance - not even the next year! (They must have grown tired of retrieving National Folk Festival mugs still completely lined with firm, cold, chocolate!)

I did try to get through one ... but my chocolate tolerance was exceeded well before halfway down the mug.

If you are looking at something else to do while in Canberra, I found out last night that the National Gallery's exhibition of the Ballet Russes costumes has been extended until early May....so I will be able to see it.....yay! Many years ago someone at the Gallery had the foresight to buy the costumes when they came up for sale and now the collection is unique. I know it's not folk music, but it is kulcha, yes?

National Library is also having a lecture/concert with Andy Irvine on Wed night - From the Page to the Stage, Breathing New Life Into Dead Songs.

the perennial question - where do we meet for the obligatory pic of massed Mudcatters?

the Sydney push are mainly singers so we tend to get to the late-night singing sessions & will of course be at the Hymn session on Sunday to raise a song & a glass of Dr Jamison's best in Rowan's memory. It's the best singing session in the festival & the harmonies rising from all those shanty & session singers is fantastic! Religious beliefs not necessary.

For the visiting UK catters - the late night singing sessions usually continue in the Session Bar stairwell - best acoustics in the whole festival, wonderful harmonies from the packed mass of singers.

we can also meet at Catter gigs - George, Cloudstreet, Canberra Chris (Shiny Bums), Bodgie (Warren Fahey), Chris Maltby (Roaring Forties)

Paul & Liz- are you performing?

We are heading off tomorrow morning so won't be able to read this thread again, as we won't have internet access.....we haven't yet joined the 21st century and bought a laptop, let alone a smart phone or whatever they are.

So......see youse all at the National!

Cheers
JennieG

I took my laptop there 2 years ago because it was said there would be WiFi available. When I looked for where it was supposed to be, it turned out that it couldn't be set up after all. There used to be a space where you could use computers there and get on the internet for half an hour, but they seem to have done away with that too. Oh well, have fun folks, and we'll see you next year!

Finally got back into wi-fi land. No Sandra, we're just punters. We'll be around during Sunday to view the proceedings. Hope to bump into a few mates then. All the best to all Ozcatters, official and honorary. Hope our paths cross.

Had a great day today, saw James & Nancy and bumped into Jonny and Vicki at lunchtime. We're going to try for a blackboard spot at Bellissimo tomorrow - if we can get up early enough. Lovely festival wouldn't have missed it for quids!
Cheers
Paul
