It's that time again. John Barden will be hasting the singarounds on Friday evening, Saturday evening and Sunday, with Ruff'n'Reddy Saturday afternoon and Monday. Dal has upped his ale order to over 40 kegs and has slabbed the are of the garden, covered by the marquee.See you there

Or after a few pints may be slowing the sinagrounds.

And when the beer is all gone on Monday, don't forget to come and see RC4 at the Crown on Monday afternoon between Simon's performances...

Note to self - book taxis. I wonder how many people I will accommodate this year.

It's great to meet new friends each year. The accusation has been made by some, that it is always the same hosts. I know that I speak for John Barden, to say that the veriety of music, produced by visitors to the festival, is amazing. We look forward to seeing and hearing you again.

While having taken the opportunity to plug my band above, I should say that the sessions in the GI are what I basically go to Sweeps for and many friends come from miles to participate in, youngsters (well, 30 or under some splendid musicians who ought to be FORCED to play)and those less young. Be there or be condemned to pub-rock in other places. My house will be a hostel for the weekend and probably a 15-seat minibus chartered, so get to the GI and make it an EVENT!

Yeh, I think Dave Blosse may have been the first one on Friday evening. He had two in fairly quick succession! Mind you, that cider does taste nice. (I only had a sip though. Honest!)

He did, however, turn up at our gig on Saturday (early afternoon) looking quite well. You can't beat experience!

I enjoyed Friday evening at the GI. I was otherwise engaged yesterday (Saturday), but I hope to add my dulcet tones to the proceedings today, even if only for a short while. (I'd better get down there before the beer runs out!)

Yes Richard. Proposed a vote of thanks to Karen and Dal, on Suday, all agreed. They do this despite being screwed by Enterprise Inns, meaning that the price they pay for their ale, does not allow them to make a decent profit, despite their hard work.

Coopers used to be the "head" pub back when I was 20 - great. I have not been in for YEARS but it's good it's back and I hope PJ's sessions there went well, but I'd rather sing than plunk (and I can't squeeze or scrape) - hence the whole weekend in the GI apart from when we were booked (at the Crown on the Monday, and the Crown were quite helpful and nice to us)

Linda and I got over to Rochester yesterday and had no sooner parked the car and started walking back towards the High Street than I spotted Pierre Le Chapeau waving through the window of a cafe, so said hello to him and Rachel full of the idea of getting up to the Good Intent for the session there....but it never happened :-( . Despite living in Kent for 22+ years this was the first time we'd ever been to Rochester so we by the time we'd had a gaw around the High Street, cathedral, castle etc we realised that if we ran we might JUST get up here for the last couple of songs.

Sorry to have missed it as I haven't been able to get to the Seven Stars sessions for ages now and had hoped to renew some acquaintances. Oh well, I'll just have to get up to Foot's Cray soon instead. Glad it went well.
