Congratulations and well done to the Bull's Head.

But don't forget that other Folk Extravaganza, The International Day of Dance in Longford Park, Stretford on Sunday 4 May.

And, more to the point, the Barn Dance on Saturday 8 March with Madcap at St Matthew's Hall, Stretford to raise money and awarness about the big day, Oh, and only £5.

I saw Taggart and Wright at The Open Door a few weeks ago. They should be booked again. Talking to them afterwards they are thinking of turning up at the Extavaganza for a song or two. Heres hoping.

It's in our diary also.

Went into the website out of curiousity and thought it was excellent. I particularly enjoyed reading about 'The History' as I was one of the regulars in the early days at the Crime View, and went on wonderful weekends to Haweswater with the gang (in my youth of course!!)

I'll pass your message on, John...one day you might be over on a visit, perhaps?

Floor spots as well, Steve - - in between booked artists and performing in the very same room...it's all very cosy.

Ali...glad you liked the site - - Bernard Cromarty, our webmaster, will be delighted. I didn't know you used to be an OD regular! Years ago when Pat ran the Cross Keys the group I was in, Tim Bobbin, did the residency there when she was on maternity leave.

Look forward to seeing you all...

PS. - - Big Bad Bob...let Pauline know what you thought of Taggart and Wright..she likes a bit of feedback. Missed 'em myself - - I was on a 'sicky' but I believe they were very good!

Glad you like the website, Ali - if you've any information or memories about the Crime View days, especially photos or posters (I have a scanner), I'd be very grateful - that includes the now legendary boat trips. You can e-mail me via the clickies littering the site!

Lord... it's only six weeks away! Maybe we should start one of those irritating count-down thingies... purraps not...!! ;^)

Thread jumping hey, so that's what I do, sounds good fun. I was doing a bit of that but I was also moving Harry's thread up to the top. Sometimes us Brits get a bit lost on Mudcat.

Ok, while I'm here I might as well mention:
Chorlton Folk Club
Thursday Nights
South West Manchester Cricket Club
Ellesmere Road
Off Wilbraham Road
Chorlton
Free admission I think and very tasty hand pumped Hydes bitter.

The Barn Dance, supporting Friends of Longford Park International Day of Dance Sunday 4 May in the Park, was a great night. Music by the fantastic Madcap, calling by Ray, who is truly brilliant.

Thanks Harry

I'm aiming to be there around noon to start shifting furniture, changing lightbulbs and so on, though we hope to get underway with the first singaround at about 1:30pm - earlier if enough turn up! We expect to finish around 11:30pm each day, so there's value for money - a pound an hour on a weekend ticket!

The way the singarounds work is each person gets one song, and can either stay seated where they are, stand up, or go to the 'front'.
We write floor singers' names on a list as they arrive, which becomes the running order for the singaround. It's much fairer that way.

When it's time for a guest to do their first set, the singaround stops, to continue where we left off after a short break when the set is over. After the guest's second set we have a longer break to allow guests to sort out their gear... then we carry on singing until the next guest is ready to start.

If you intend to sing, make sure either myself or Pauline has you listed! I will be running the singarounds, as Pauline has enough to do selling raffle tickets and looking after the guests! John will have enough to do keeping Pauline's beer coming!
