Thanks Vectis - I googled and found a ph number for Clare Penny - she is passing info on to whoever is running it - sounds perfect actually!!!
Hi Herga Kitty - It was 25 yrs since I lived in UK, but I did come back in 2009 & 2010 I think it was, and probably came to Herga then! (can't remember ....CRAFT :))
I have applied to steward at Chippenham!

Still looking for a camper van though, if anyone knows of one; or can recommend a dealer - budget is 10000 pounds; bed above the cab, and bed at the back; toilet/shower - everything else is a bonus but not essential!

I would highly commend

Pennymoor Song and Ale - First weekend in June. Friday 5 to Sunday 7 June 2020. Google for it and the contact details.

A wonderful weekend of local and outside singers held in Devon a few instruments but mainly unaccompanied, lusty, singing by a really friendly crowd. Camping available. One of the festivals I really miss now I am living down under.

This funding distortion is serious. No problem about musicians making a living out of the music, but funders who have a set amount for 'folk and traditional music often take the easy & safe route.

I recall a few years ago when my local authority had a set amount for traditional music, but had no background or knowledge of this kind of music & gave 100pc to a locally thriving country music festival!    yeeha.
Easy and safe but not very helpful to the grassroots!

Hull Folk & Maritime.
Free festival apart from a couple of concerts. Last year due to lack of funding we had a grass roots festival based on local singers/musicians with lots of singarounds and sessions, concerts on boats. The way funding is currently going it's looking like same again. If we get any substantial funding it will go on a few big names for paid concerts but the basic grass roots will always be there.

I have the Falmouth International Shanty Festival on my list - definitely going to that -
looked at DORSET TRADITIONAL SONG WEEKEND        5/6/20        7/6/20 - but only 35 tickets so decided too small
for the weekend 26th to 28th:
choice of St Albans Festival or Hull Folk and Maritime Festival or West Sommerset Folk - which has the most singing is the question ???
Gap on 19th to 21st June????
Someone mentioned: Fifesing - that is in May - we are tossing up between Fifesing & Shepley Spring Festival - same weekend!
May is sorted, apart from that question: Upton Festival, then Holmfirth Festival then Fifesing
or Shepley Spring Festival, then Chippenham festival then an extra one at Doncaster Folk Festival!
July is: Cleackheaton, Warwick Festival
August - Whitby & Shrewsbury - still a work in progress
September is one only, Bromyard, as leaving the country then!
Might be shattered if we do them all :(
Yes Brian Peters, it is me!!
Thanks everyone for your input :)

I think they still have diddling competitions at some of the TMSA festivals.

Worth saying too, that both Fifesing and Cullerlie, though happening in Scotland (and not in June!), don't confine themselves to Scots songs: there are usually guests from Scotland, England and Ireland (N and S), and sometimes from N America, as well as loads of enthusiastic singers among the general attenders. And they both have facilities for camping, whether tents or motorhomes/caravans.

Cornwall or Keith for that weekend of June 12th-14th? What a choice - and a distance between them!
You may need the wellies at Cullerlie!

Shanty festivals are very popular & great for participation, but not comparable to some of the generally solo singing at many festivals' - they tend to be very different animals...

Pax then, Steve: I was also trying to be helpful, and of course I had had read the word JUNE! But not knowing when Shez's 4 months starts and ends, it still seemed worthwhile to highlight other festivals within that period. (And the first 2 I mentioned really do specialise almost exclusively in unaccompanied singing.)
Agree with Johnny J that Keith is a nice festival, and IS in June!

And Guest Tim, when is that Falmouth Festival?

There's Keith Festival on 12 June - 14 June.

Most of the singing there is of the unaccompanied variety(and there's lots) although there is also a musical(These days, dominated by SDBs unfortunately) side as well.

It's friendly and welcoming though.

The website seems to have gone as it used to be linked to the TMSA site which has now ben revamped.

JUNE is a four-letter word, but Shez said he/she was coming for four months (unspecified which months and has not replied to request to be more specific)), so not unreasonable to mention other good festivals any time between March and September - 4 months before and after, but including JUNE! I kept my list to those that I know do have a large proportion of UNACCOMPANIED singing!! (Which was also requested).

The three Scottish ones where you will find the most unaccompanied singing are as follows:

Fifesing Traditional Singing Festival - May 15th-17th 2020 - based in Freuchie and Falkland (in Fife, of course!)
Fifesing Traditional Singing Festival

Cullerlie Traditional Singing Weekend: July 24th-26th 2020 - at Cullerlie Farm park - a few miles west of Aberdeen. Apart from teh singing there is a chance to learn rural crafts!
No other details of this year's event yet, but worth bookmarking the website:
Cullerlie Traditional Singing Weekend

Then there's Falkland Traditional Music Festival (also in Falkland, Fife, which took a break last year, but is up and running again this year: it has gone back from June to August to the same weekend that used to be the one for the long-running Auchtermuchty Festival, 7th-9th August:
Falkland Traditional Music Festival

And if you like a bit of Scottish history, no better place to be than in Falkland: see the Palace, including Real tennis court where Maty Queen of Scots might have played!

Jim C- you're dead right about the terminology, but I'll have one more go- it's good to agree with you about SOMETHING anyway!!
Ignorance of anything outside England (or part of it?) has been well demonstrated for many years & especially today
When we did B&B in West Cork, we had English visitors who brought their own stamps for their postcards. And quite annoyed to be told they'd need to buy Irish ones!- how long has Ireland been independent?

Originator of the thread hasn't clarified what he/she really wants and Aussies are probably better probably better informed, but hopefully someone can give more specific advice to make the best of the trip...

By the French - the English tend not to foul their mouths with foreign-speak
The Irish Sea is also referred to as the Celtic Sea, of course

It doesn't matter, of course - I rased the question because I felt that visitors should be forewarned of the prevailing 'Little England-ism' on the rise at present

Yes Modette you are quite correct- I was using shorthand- wrong maybe but what's the alternative?
NORTHERN IRELAND is anathema to republicans - maybe the SIX COUNTIES might be OK?
   I am well aware of the three counties in question- I lived for several years near Dowra in Cavan & played music in the Melrose pub there a few times.
   I'd certainly support your recommendation of the Inishowen weekend in Ballyliffin in March for unaccompanied singing, having been a guest singer/musician there a few years ago.

The original question has been ignored. Unaccompanied singing is probably present at many of the above, but some are much better but as an infrequent festivalgoer I'll leave it to others to advise on that.

Also, Ireland is not in the UK (except for Ulster) & the question was about the UK not Ireland.

Am sure the originator of the thread is aware of the differing meanings of Britain, GB, UK, England etc & if not, I'd advise him/her to brush up on the sensibilities here!
I agree, Jim C, the BRITISH ISLES is not an acceptable term as they aren't all British.
Mind you, if that's so, surely the IRISH SEA should also be an unacceptable name?
