Red Duster (Ron Baxter and Ross Campbell) will be presenting "Farewell to the Clan Line - Songs and Stories of the British Merchant Fleet" at 1.30pm on Saturday 23rd, with some new material for those who may have seen the show before. See the PermaThread: Merchant Navy Songs for all the songs and much more.

On Sunday we'll be doing "Adventurers, Buccaneers and Corsairs - an ABC of Piracy" at 2.30pm. As an ex-Merchant Navy man, Ron's take on piracy is not the usual rosy-tinted view.

Looking forward to the weekend. It's a great venue, lots to see (and hear!)

Well, if ever there was a resounding success this was it. Weather made perfect! Julia and Derek asked for honest feedback and I couldnt think of a thing I would change. To have a sell out on a Saturday night concert was an extraordinary feat and it was truly a pleasure and privelege to be part of it! So enjoyed meeting up with the usual suspects, ex-Shellbackers all of whom are singing brilliantly. Great performances from Dave Kidman whose was singing better than ever and delighted to hear Paul Sirman after many years as good as ever. Delighted also to see Hughie Jones and Bob Conroy on top form. Well done to everyone involved not just the artists who gave of their time but all the supporters who came and paid to get in and to eat drink and be accomodated. they deserve a special thanks.

Congratulations to Derek and Julia, and everyone else involved, for organising such a successful weekend. The Boat Museum was an ideal setting, with boats and ships of all sizes passing by, and everyone seemed very friendly and welcoming. It was a great occasion for meeting friends and listening to some very fine singers. Whoever was responsible for the weather arrangements deserves a medal as well.

I enjoyed listening to Red Duster's show on piracy, and it was lovely to hear so many charming Dutch songs as well, but the highlight for me has to be the Saturday night concert.

The setting couldn't have been better. Set right on top of the Ellesmere canal and about 200 yards from the Manchester Ship Canal and crammed full of canal boats.
It was an amazing experience to walk across the locks as the canal boats passed beneath you.

The new festival was extremely well attended mainly due to the hard work of the organizers and the goodwill of folkies and maritime groups who freely gave their their time to get this new venture off the ground. Also thanks should go to the Museum staff for being so accommodating.

I had a great time meeting friends, making new ones and singing my heart out.
Hopefully this will be repeated next year - I'll certainly be back.

Seconded and thirded, as they say!
What an utterly splendid weekend. It was one of the best organised maritime festivals I've ever attended; the atmosphere was great, the performers all excellent, the museum staff tremendously helpful and accommodating, the Boat Museum Society folks really supportive, the attendees (folkies and punters alike) attentive and supportive - and the weather just right too! I really can't praise the organising team highly enough for their skilled management, constant attention to everyone's needs and their unstinting willingness to listen - and ability to respond effectively - to the unavoidable little crises and the steady stream of comments and suggestions that were being received throughout the weekend.
From a personal standpoint, I enjoyed the singing opportunities immensely, and have been seriously chuffed at the warm feedback received from so many quarters (and cheers Linda, you and Hazel were fab too!).
Like Snuffy above, I feel privileged to have been able to take part, and I too hope to look forward to hearing some good news soon about the festival's future prospects.
Massive well done to all concerned.

We went on the Saturday and had a good day - great to see so many old friends and the setting was more than a setting - it was very interesting in its own right.

Just a few bits of, hopefully, positive feedback for taking into consideration for next year (which hopefully there will be). I know that often there are different viewpoints on these things, but I chuck these in for consideration:

If using Porters Row and the Bigmore vessel again, try and arrange for some additional seats to be provided? There was only half a doz or so at Porters Row and, apart from not being enough, it makes the 'venue' look as if there's not really much there to be attracted to. Remember that the museum is full of people who have no idea of who the performers are and so won't know whether they are worth seeing or not. Also, that the age range of visitors will likely include quite a few people who'd welcome a sit.

Would it be poss to expand the programme a bit, so it gives more info than just names of performers and times / venues? As above, lots of the people at the museum would not know who the performers were, so the prog needs to give a bit more detail to draw them in and appeal to those who may never have heard of a shanty or a forebitter (or a concertina, for that matter!) Also, watch out for tying in the 'names' you use for the venues, with those on the museum's site map. We struggled a bit at first, trying to find where things were cos the description didn't match the locations in the map.

I know that, on the Saturday night concert, a singaround was begun in the adjacent bar. Whilst this didn't impact on the concert to any great degree, it did make the whole top floor a bit of a no-go area, in terms of finding somewhere for a drink and a chat. Not sure what the options might be on that one.

All in all we had a cracking day - although one of my party, who is a diabetic vegetarian struggled a bit to find something he could eat.

Hope that some funding can be agreed for next year - these things do need a proper budget if they are to grow and meet whatever targets success is measured by. The museum is a cracking base but will have a range of boxes it needs to tick, I imagine.

Some interesting comments, Blowz. I was there for a few hours on Saturday and enjoyed it immensely. Thought the compact yet varied site worked very well - serendipity kicked in at irregular intervals... The weather certainly helped, of course. Sat in on the bar singaround around lunchtime and enjoyed the quite light touch approach adopted by the shanty groups who opened and then managed the "watches" involved. I gather the singaround didn't really happen on the opening day but it picked up momentum nicely on the Saturday. I wasn't around for the concert, which I gather went well.

Must say I particularly enjoyed the singing on the Bigmore. While a few more chairs would have been welcome, it would perhaps be a pity to make it too tidy!

Regards

p.s. only "negative" comment I heard was that an off-site session in a nearby pub involved too much of a cultural dichotomy!

Hi All,
First of all a big thanks to everyone who participated, artists, our volunteers, the museum and their volunteers, boat museum society and all the members of the public 'folkie' or 'boatie' or the simply curious.............. without you all the weekend would not have happened (oops forgot to thank the sun for making a welcome appearance)
We have over a hundred feedback forms to go through and are already starting to see some themes which echo the constructive criticism here as well as a lot of positives. For Derek, Ian, Chris, Denise and myself the weekend passed in a blur of activity, from the number of smiles, hugs and beery kisses we all received the planning and hard work paid off. Really glad folks had a good time.
After the next commitee meeting we will be getting photos etc up on the web site so keep looking.
Just a reminder, Artists and volunteers please fill in your Shanty UK membership forms.
Shanty UK is an open society for anyone who wants to join. In the next month we will be getting membership forms and info on how to join up on the web site.
Thanks again
Doxy
PS funny point from the weekend, TC to me telling me the venue Bigmere had sprung a leak and was sinking. To have a ship go down on our maiden voyage might have inspired a few song writers!
