We just returned from a new sea music festival, in Ballydehob, near Skibbereen in West Cork. It's the Fastnet Maritime and Folk Fest, and it ran from Friday night through Sunday night (June 15-17, 2012). This being the first (hopefully not the last), it was smallish by Mystic standards, but it was a delightful weekend.

Among the listed performers were Baggyrinkle, Trim Rig and a Doxy, Andrew McKay/Carole Etherton, Andy Kenna, Verna Connolly, Devil's Wate, Capstan Full Strength, Henk Voss, Free Spirit, and After the Storm. On the landlubber side (as one of the sing-alongs was bi lled) were Matt Cranitch and Jackie Daly (who played together and separately), Rattlesnake County, Molly O'Mahony, and Norman Collins. There were Irish trad sessions, Scottish country dancing, and traditional French dancing (led by Marie Laure Hasse).

Most of the action was in five pubs right in the town center, with some in the community center and the Methodist Church. Weather permitting (and it did, to the surprise of many), there were concerts on an outdoor stage down by the bay.

Ballydehob is a beautiful small town and the locals were very welcoming. It is just a few kilometers' drive to great views of Fastnet and its historic lighthouse, and just a few kilometres more to Mizenhead, Ireland's most southerly point with its great views and small maritime museum (and café).

The festival kicked off about 9 on Friday night with two singarounds, a trad session, and two individual concerts. Saturday morning saw five workshops – Jackie Daly, fiddle; Matt Cranitch, button accordion; Andy Kenna, John Masefield poems set to music; Tomas Wiegandt, percussion; and Norman Collins, understanding harmony and chords. The outdoor concert started about 2, and the sing-alongs and concerts started in earnest about 3 and lasted till well after midnight. Aside from the workshops, Sunday was much like Saturday. We left about 6 to get back to Dublin.

We keep saying 'singalong', but they were actually set up as miniconcerts. One of them had a series of 30-minute sets from maybe a half-dozen performers. The one we mainly attended (and preferred) was run by Verna Connolly and Dick Miles at Levi's Pub. They had the performers do three songs, and then took three floor singers from the audience, then another performer and more floor singers. All the sings that we went to at Levi's were rousing affairs, and we both sang at all of them.

The festival was, we understand, conceived, instigated, and organized almost singlehandedly by Dick Miles, who also raised the funds, performed, ran singalongs, headed up the songwriting competition, booked taxis for performers, and was called out of the competition when a toilet got blocked. He did an amazing job and should be congratulated.

Ireland has few sea music festivals, and unfortunately Fastnet fell on the same weekend as the third annual Rosses Point sea shanty festival, near Sligo Town. We went to that last year, and would have gone back this year but for the conflict. We made the right choice this year but would have liked to go to both. We hope that both festivals will thrive in future, but hopefully on separate weekends.

Gina and Bill Dunlap

Some people are already there, and they may want to see him. Getting Jackie Daly to teach a fiddle workshop is a bit of an odd choice though.

Jackie Dly gave an accordion workshop, Matt Cranitch gave a fiddle workshop, it must have been a typo.
"I and Liz Elizabeth Randall have just returned from another splendid Fastnet Festival in Ballydehob. The music was as always good with Martin Carthy & Tom Lewis plus the usual regulars who all contribute to making it a success. Dick Richard Josef Miles is to be congratulated that all his hard work has paid off again and we look forward to next year. The remainder of our time was spent sightseeing, including a visit to the beautiful Dingle peninsular." quote

no, its less horrible than dealing with the shit on this forum from anonymous guests, and much easier than all the organising that goes in to getting a festival running well, I admire people like JohnTaylor and alan castle who have been doing it for much longer than me.

We're just back from the 7th Fastnet Festival in the lovely village of Ballydehob. It was (as have been the 6 previous festivals) a fantastic weekend of song, music and friendship. An amazing amount of organisation was done by Dick to make it happen.

The remarks made by some on this post remind me why I stopped coming onto the Mudcat Forum on a regular basis.

What festival (Triumphant, or otherwise) have I mentioned Cj? But to be polite I'll enquire in turn how your's is coming on?

Believe it or not some of us aren't the unabashed self-publicists that Dick Miles/Good Soldier Schweik/The Sandman is. I've suggested in the past that he be given his own Perma-Thread to do his advertising - at times it just gets downright tiresome.

Oops Guest Observer.

While you are so busy criticising and commenting about other folks, you've made a huge blunder in the eyes of the grammar police.

An apostrophe faux pas! Well I never - Mr 'Perfect' Observer falls flat on his face.

And where GUEST GP have I ever stated, or maintained, that I am 'Perfect'? But if all you have to comment on with regard to my posts to this thread, or any other, is "an apostrophe faux pas" then it sort of implies that you agree with the content and that I have very little to worry about.

I note that the above is your first foray posting to the 'cat, so if indeed you are a 'Grammar Pedant' I'll point you in the direction of the contributions below the line - You'll have a field day.

Guest the Observer
it is necessary to use publicity to promote festivals, that is why the festival has been successful for seven years and why it was better attended this year than any previous year. you remind me of the hurler in the ditch, presumably you have nothing to publicise.
personally i found your spats with jim carroll tiresome, now be a good hurler and get back in the ditch
