Ah yes melodeon workshops. I guess that you aren't a fan. :)

Now that you mention it we haven't arranged one yet. What a good idea. I think I will have to set up a few.

The time for the festival draws nigh.

Any more suggestions would be good.

Sue: As Kitty said! Basically, the festival organisers kindly program in a time & a place for MudCatters to Gather. We say hello, introduce ourselves to each other, bring and eat chocolate and have a Singaround. We hug too!

As I recall, the 'small room' is exactly what it says on the tin, it is 'small'! When we Gathered in February it seemed to work quite well with people cramming chairs in & making space for others to join in. But it was also quite fluid, with Catters wandering in when there was space and wandering off to other events when they felt like it. As long as empty seats are 'fair game' and people don't bring the kitchen sink with them it ought to work!

So, who's coming???

If anyone would like to shake a leg with Wild Thyme border morris in the garden of the Hop Pole on Sunday- do come along, it's great fun. No qualifications required! 2 til 3pm [and 4.40pm-> if we're not drying out from earlier :) ]

(And if anyone would like to play for Wild Thyme- as above- PLEASE do- otherwise it's just me :/ Very few qualifications required!)

Sorry I'll miss the Mudgather, Hils and all.

Well, that was our first Alcester Festival, and we enjoyed it. Some great voices in the Newport Folk Club session and Derek and Kitty's session, and we particularly enjoyed Notts Alliance. I've wanted to see them for ages and it was worth the wait. Thanks for all the effort that was put in by the organising team....

Is it that hard to spot Mumblin' Len ? O.K. He's not an active mudcatter, but he is the other half of Tone Deaf Leopard.
We can't believe how many of our original songs we played. It's a wonderful festival for singing, and concerts. Amazing what can be acheived in one weekend . Kitty and Derek's sessions were great. Breakfast with Alhambra was an experience . What a beautiful building is the Town Hall ? Trevor worked it out that it must be the Town Hall because it looked like a Rathause. We'll be back.
