Bill asked for a continuation to the increasingly long UK catters Please Read thread.

I blame the megalomaniacal actions of Les and Ickle Dorritt for causing things to get out of hand...

Lilith..

There's tons of stuff on in Glasgow Folk-wise.

This evening (Wednesday) there's a regular singing session on in the Cafe underneath St Andrew In the Square (just off Saltmarket, down from the Cross), Thursday is the Star Club, which meets at the Riverside on Clyde St)

A good general source is www.gigguide.co.uk look under the Folk/World Headings.

If you have access to transport, there's a good singing/intrumental session on at Kincaid House Hotel in Milton of Campsie nearish to Glasgow on a Sunday evening.

www.campsiefolk.fws1.com

I won't creep this thread any more...

Cheers SD

Ickle Dorrit, Yorkshire ain't that big, but finding a straight line between two points is kind of hard!

EJ, I'm sure I've asked you b4, but which sessions do you hang out in in Cambridge? I go to the Unicorn in Cherry Hinton, the Little Rose in Haslingfield and the New Crown in Girton, plus occasional visits to the Bees in the Wall in Whittlesford. Somehow never got round to the Portland Arms though.

Lilith, I'm also in Glasgow, and I'm keen on learning Canadian folk tunes (actually I'm typing this from Edmonton, after a whirlwind tour of the East coast, trying to learn Nova Scotian tunes). Anyway, I'll be back in Sept if you want to swap tunes...

How do you think I managed Mudguard? I have the directional talents of a dead stoat, and that's when I CAN read the sign posts. Stick 'em in a foreign language and I'm completely stuffed!!! Thank heaven for dual language signposts, and a rough smattering of Welsh pronunciation!

Bonzo - another one!!! I know that tropical part well, having been brought up there..... half my family are buried in Abbotsbury & Portesham, the other half still live there!

Ah, such visions of loveliness as never was.... the view from the top of Abbotsbury Hill (possible to see all the way over to the Lizard if weather conditions are right...) and the delights of the Elm at Langton Herring.

Maybe we should have Dorset gathering.... please?

LTS - desperately homesick for some Tanglefoot or Royal Oak....

LTS, you obviously don't realize that it's they up at Ducktown (Southwell) who have webbed feet - not forgetting the holes in their chairs to let their tails down through. I haven't seen any tails myself but it's what the old folks reckon and they should know.

What about the C word? (coney, old word for R*****, rhymes with Honey and was dropped due to connotations). See, for example, 'Pills to Purge Melancholy'
