anyone fancy a sing on saturday afternoon, grub in the Blue Ball is good and reasonably priced, excellent real ale and a nice relaxed long session 11.30 to 3.30pm. I am looking forward to kicking off the evening concert which has Roy Bailey headlining with old timey band King Courgette sandwich between us

Now I have woken up a bit I can tell you that the festival was a huge success, it has been a bit a bit of a slog for Dave, Rowena, Nick and Co. but this years festival was superb. My regret is that I was so busy I didn't get to see any of the dancing which from all accounts was a roaring success.in fact it is a problem with a small compact festival that everything is going on at the same time. And, this year, a "fringe" appeared with singing and playing going on whilst the main concert was in progress, great stuff. There was very nearly a full house, with all seats taken for the concert although there was enough room to fit others in should it have been necessary, we enjoyed doing it, stumbled a couple of times on the words, and I had a few weak notes at the beginning of one song due to an unexpected froggie, in hindsight I should have stopped cleared my throat and start again but the boys joined me on the second line so i manfully took a gulp and swallowed the little beggar, all was well after that. King Courgette offered an interesting contrast of old timey stuff and Roy Bailey was superb, what a consummate performer, he handed out a lesson on how to catch an audience and reel them in it was brilliant. I think I have only seen this level of skill once before and that was Tom Paxton, what they both gave the audience was an intimacy as if they were sitting in your front room performing to you alone and yet by the amount of audience participation you knew you were not. I had met Roy Bailey, I worked out, nearly twenty years ago and when we were going through the introductions during the sound check he said, "I know you, we have met before" That is bloody impressive, I can't remember what I had for breakfast! I will post a set list or Charley to peruse when I can remember it!

Back to the session in the Blue Ball, it really was that good, I echo Rays sentiment and thanks to all, especially Ray who had a fair distance to travel by some margin to be with us, the craic was amazing I don't think I have laughed so much for a long time especially johns story about the old lady and her little stick, you had to be there!

Still recovering from the afternoon singaround. Excellent! Support everything that has been said above. Thanks everyone. The morning dance sessions were good too. Must keep this festival going.

Anyone local is welcome at our Wednesday evenings at Flaxton, just outside York. The Thompsons Arms through the village and over the level crossing.

Bill

Just clocked another thread about passing on the songs and thought it relevant to comment on this thread. During the sing around in the Blue Ball pub regulars were coming in late into the session and although being unfamiliar with the genre were saying if they had known it was going to be this good they would have been in from the start. The ingredients were time , 5 hours for a session and some really good singers with really good songs and the craic, it was particularly the craic, because there was plenty of time to get the songs in there was time for anecdotes, stories and banter which was hilarious at times, it is true that most of us had met before so the social barriers were not present but never the less I think it was the time element made it an easy comfortable session. The other thing worth commenting was that singing in the bar of the pub that the concert was in was led by one person with his own song book and the regulars of the packed bar asking him to lead songs in the songbook which they enthusiastically joined in with, they were not "dyed in the wool" folkies, and went on til 2am by all accounts. Both occasions presented a variety of songs, some old some new in a fun and all embracing way with no shushing and preciousness just racuss old fashioned fun. Traditional Folk music needs to leave it's crusty huffy holier than thou image and find the fun in it again, I am not saying there should not be a place for scholarship but the regulars singing in the bar didn't give a flying f**k where the song came from, how hackneyed folkies think they are, they wanted a night out and a bloody good sing and that is what they got, that is what will bring them back next year not a group of people sitting in silence dutifully listening to each other, you never know they might even get to a concert or two where your allowed to be quiet

Yea why not!

Singing is entertaining, interesting, funny, songs serious songs, disaster and life and then also joining in with anything vaguely familiar over the last 70 years or so!
