I stand corrected, with apologies to Chris, Works offshore, but does live in Felixstowe, so I did get that bit right, and the bit about him being an excellent singer and guitarist.

And he's well worth coming to see at The Bury St Edmunds Oxjam Folk Day, as are all the other super artists involved. It's only two days away now, so if you are in the area, come along, only £10.00 for the day, with every penny raised going for the work of Oxfam.

Last minute change to the line up, owing to illness, Cottonhouse will not now be appearing, but we are delighted to say that the lovely Marina Florance has at very short notice, filled the gap.

Should be a great day, if you are in the Bury St Edmunds area, come and see us.

Just £10.00 to get in, with every penny raised going to Oxfam

Is all of the money going in the right direction? The managers of the Oxfam shops are paid a salary, and the shops pay a very small amount in business rates. How much in the pound actually gets to where it's supposed to be going?

Speedwell..thanks for the comments. It was a lovely day and was a pleasure as always to sing with Alie.

I won't steal John's thunder but I hear the day was very successful -certainly in terms of everyone's enjoyment but also in amount of money raised.

A great effort from everyone involved and a real nice day out !

OK Folks, here's the news you've all been waiting for, the final total donated to OXFAM from the Bury St Edmunds Oxjam Folk Day was a staggering £1823.51
I feel very humbled by the generousity of all those lovely people who performed, helped with setting up and clearing up, worked on the day feeding the artists, serving beer, teas and coffees, doing the sound etc etc. And of course everyone that attended and enjoyed the day. BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!

I've just heard there's another Oxjam Festival at Bury St Edmunds next October, and Jody Kruskal is coming to play and run a workshop on 13th and 14th.

My informant (on behalf of Jody in NY) was hoping to get some publicity in Mardles magazine, but is just too late (I might be able to squash in a line or two in the event listings)

If it happens again next year, do let me know earlier in June (editor@suffolkfolk.co.uk) and I could give it some more publicity.
I can't find a web site or any information for this year's Oxjam though - it's a well kept secret!
