It seems there is no thread yet about this. REALLY looking forward to it, and so far the wevva forecast seems promising. On the vanwatch front, all seems well apart from the 12V side of the fridge on my vardo (unlike Deal last weekend where I was scurrying around at the last second for a new jockeywheel) - and I am about to attack that 12V system.

See you all there...

Bob Copper: A Gentleman of High Renown - A multimedia show


VIC & TINA SMITH celebrate 100 years since Bob's birth with stories, photos, recordings, videos of this iconic figure in English traditional song. Many of the items in the show will not have been heard/seen in public and they are taken from the various ways in which they worked with Bob for over 35 years.

This event takes place on Saturday 3rd October from 13.00 - 14.30 and the entrance fee is £5.00. It will be at a new venue for the festival; Tenterden Folk Festival now has a community hall at Beachy Path, Danemore, Tenterden TN30 6RS. The hall was formerly The St. John's Ambulance Hall and is still signposted as such.

We are so looking forward to performing at Tenterden as Morrigan and also getting to loads of the other stuff too. Our formal bit is done by the end of Sat so we can party on on the Sunday.

Chris Harrison from our band is doing a workshop on Sat afternoon featuring the poetry of his great grandfather Joseph Skipsey who was a pitman poet. We will mostly be singing acapella but will be adding instrumentals to our set in the Vine on Sat eve.

Should be a good one if the weather holds

Camping: It looks as if there will be some spare camping passes about -

Angelle Sweetapple who dances with Gongs and sometimes Allsorts will I think have a spare tent pass. She does not post here.

I am likely to have a spare tent pass as I thing all of my girlfriend's children and/or her friends are too alarmed by the thought of spiders, or being eaten by bears to go.

Tone Deaf Leopard's caravan pass is also going unused. This I assume is due to Trevor's recent sojourn in hospital.

Usually manage a day trip & wish I could pop along this year. But alas, I can't this year as we're hosting a house concert with Lynne Heraud & Pat Turner, it was the only weekend that worked for them.

Maybe one year soon we could have a MudGather at Tenterden? I'd be up for running it, perhaps someone 'in the know' could suggest it to the organisers?

Anyway, the programme & the weather looks good, have a Fab Time!!

Continuing family events that prevented much folking this year still prevail but I think I've managed to interest a chauffeur in sharing the delights of the festival so I hope to be dipping in on Saturday for a few singarounds or whatever. Then if my driver is happy maybe Sunday too.

Fantastic weekend at Tenterden. So good to catch up with friends and to sing and play. Some fantastic acts too - Scold's Bridle, Mick Ryan and Paul Downs, Roy Clinging, Dick Miles to name a few and then to finish off last night with a mass singaround at the Caxton with our favourite compere's Bob and Malcolm and the bonus of Festival Director Alan Castle being their too. Always sad that it has to end.

Thoroughly enjoyable. A bit of a shame that the pubs seemed so devoted to rugger-buggers and strange pretentiousness - and were charging nearly four squid for a pint.

New field good. Spent the whole of Sunday there drinking wine, singing and playing and singing with friends. Got home about 1 pm today.

Although the shower in my little caravan is not bad for a little old caravan, it might be a good time for me to have proper shower and early night tonight

More power to Alan's elbow!

One of the pubs on the outskirts of Tenterden had a ' no folk' sign on the board outside. It was tempting to do a mass invasion but everyone was having too good a time to bother.
The highlight of the weekend is always Andy's cake. Tea and cake after a good days dancing shared with the morris.
I got it wrong on the Saturday night in the Caxton session by leading a dance tune I thought everybody would know, as Bob likes join in songs/tunes and ended up doing a near solo. Never mind. I could have made much worse mistakes.

Surely that's the wrong attitude. Just because a town puts on a folk festival doesn't mean that local non-folkies should have nowhere to go for the duration.

There was an office on the High Street with a sandwich board outside on the flagstones which said 'PLEASE DO NOT DANCE ON THIS FORECOURT'- presumably anything else would have been OK?

G force - it was just odd. It was the pub nearest to where we were camping - but it was banning us ( even if we did not produce instruments and make a terrible din).
Whenever we have a session I always ask the landlord if it's OK. I can't imagine others don't do the same. I can totally understand if a pub wants to be a social meeting place for the locals. No offence taken if the landlord says No music.
I should imagine that the Caxton survives the winter on its takings from Folk week. It was crowded every lunch and evening, with folkies eating and drinking. I'm surprised any small pub gives up that source of income.
