Subject: Whittlebury Song & Ale, UK
From: BB
Date: 23 Jun 02 - 09:59 AM

There are a few places left for this year's Song & Ale in Northamptonshire. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but take a look at the entry on our web-site at www.umbermusic.co.uk/songandale.htm and if you think it might interest you, e-mail me at tomandbarbara@umbermusic.co.uk for further details - don't forget to send me you snailmail address!

If someone can also e-mail me to tell me how to do the blue clicky thing, I'd be very grateful!

Barbara

Noreen : it's on 27th - 29th September. If you can come I think you'd enjoy it. Just remember to bring your wellies and extra bedding as 1)camping is on the field next to the barn on a working farm and 2) it can get cold at the end of September

It's a well worth a visit! Geoff and I have been for the lst 2 years, and the singing is just superb! But Jude's right - you definitely need your wellies!! Ali

Was just about to post my application (which may have been too late anyway) this morning, when I realised ithat Whittlebury clashes with the Ewan MacColl celebratory weekend in Salford, with Peggy Seeger, Alison McMorland & Geordie McIntyre, Kevin & Ellen Mitchell, Sandra Kerr and heaps of others... I missed the first Salford do last year so I'm committed to this one.

Another year! Have a lovely time, all.

)What's that about wellies? We wear nothing else on out feet up here in t'North...)

I've never made it to Whittlebury, for various reasons, which now include middle-aged resistance to camping,as well as work and aged mother limiting opportunities to go away for whole weekends, but if dropping by to say hello is permissible please let me know (and PM or e-mail info about where Mr Wesley's farm is actually located!).

Kitty, you'd be more than welcome if you'd been in touch earlier, but it is, for legal reasons, a 'Members Only' event. (No, it's got nothing to do with PELs!) I'm already away from home at present, and using someone else's computer, but I'll e-mail you about it when I get home. I don't even have your e-mail address with me, I'm afraid. Sorry!

Julie, with a bit of luck, we won't need the wellies (I'm touching every bit of wood I can find!), as the weather forecast at present looks extraordinarily good! See you tomorrow.

Barbara

A dry Whittlebury!!!!!
Not traditional at all, but welcome.
I look forward to being able to say "There was once a dry Whittlebury. I know 'cos I was there."
See you tomorrow.

Couldn't cope with the 5 hour drive this year but will be thinking about you all.
I'm sure it will be great and a dry Whittlebury is an incredible event (people sitting around outside singing and chatting)
I bet there's someone still singing the loo song though


Queue for the Loo

Chorus
Queue, queue,queue for the loo
Queue, queue,queue for the loo
Queue, queue,queue for the loo
Early in the morning

Stand on one leg , then on two
Stand on one leg , then on two
Waiting in this b****y queue
Early in the morning

Last night had a Vindaloo
Followed by a pint or two
Now it's all trying to come through
Early in the morning

Have fun composing more verses .....I't might even take your mind of the length of the wait ..... :)

I've never been to the Whittlebury Song & Ale but local singer Dick Holdstock has been there several times and just raves about it. Wish I could go.

I am pleased to announce that this was a dry Whittlebury.
We drank the bar dry and had a cracking weekend.
Nice to see so many familiar faces. Even nicer to be able to sit on the grass and chat.

Radriano, if you think you might be able to get over here some time, and can make sure that it's at the end of September, send me your snail-mail address, and I'll put you on the mailing list. You'll stay on it for three years, but can then ask for it to remain on the list if you still haven't managed to make it.

This also applies to anyone else who thinks that it might suit them - no instruments, and a job to do for a couple of hours during the weekend - I think those are the only possible downsides - and many people think they're actually the opposite!

Please e-mail tomandbarbara@umbermusic.co.uk

PS: Like the song, Nutty, but where did you get the vindaloo? Missed you, by the way.

Barbara

My first Song 'n' Ale (and first Mudcat contribution !). Well I had a wonderful, wonderful weekend as a Whittlebury virgin. What an experience, and so many great songs ! I'll definitely be back next year. Unfortunately missed the famous auction - to collect fidgity children.

Sally M -and maybe I'll relearn the blackbird song - with actions!

Many thanks to all of you at Song and Ale for the lovely Birthday surprise you all gave me. To have you all join in and share with me in my own joy was the most wonderful experience. Love to you all and I look forward to being there with you again next year (though I bet it will rain!) Colyn.
