Subject: A new Thread for all you younger folkies
From: Kate
Date: 14 Mar 03 - 02:14 PM

Hi folks,
Here's a new thread for all you young folkies. I feel that we need a forum to chat, and there's many of us that know and love Mudcat. It seems a shame to move away. Why not carry on the last thread? - Well it went a bit sour and although there may have been good meaning in the comments (which I'm sure have been registered and understood) it seems like a good idea to move on and start on a better note. I for one would really appreciate a chance to hear from fellow young ones.

So future festivals... I'm definitely going to make Sidmouth festival (only for the weekend though as work can't let me off for longer). I know that there are alot of young people there, some of who know each other some of who turn up afresh - but it's a fantastic and freindly festival with something for everyone. Sad as I am, I've been going since I was 5, with only a few years missed. I'm also hoping to make Towersey and Otley, maybe even Cambridge. I'm on the look out as well for other festivals. Any ideas?

Kate

Hi Kate!

I'm 19. If you go to Festival At The Edge or Warwick, I am likely to be found behind the badge stall (or swimming at Warwick!)

Hi Shonagh,

have a look at the TMSA website for a list of Scottish festivals:

http://www.tmsa.info/calendar.htm

...Tinto Festival in the borders is a nice friendly small festival, and Newcastleton (also borders) is a similar, session based job. Anyone who hasn't been to Orkney Folk Festival (end of May) hasn't lived ;-)

love weepiper (25 but unlikely to be doing much in the way of festivals this year - expecting a baby in August!)

Whilst unashamedly plugging Holmfirth Festival can I mention that we pride ourselves on being "young person" friendly - Kate Rusby , Last Night's Fun, The Pack all started here. This year the concerts on Friday (Flook) and Sunday (Vin Garbutt) will have young school based bands as the opening acts, and on the Vin Garbutt bill there is also Kerfuffle. They are one of the most exciting bands around and are destined for big things. (They are doing their GCSE's) We also have Harriet Barlett who whilst a seasoned performer and a competition winner at Celtic COnnections is still very young and Ruth Notman another very young performer.

And for the more "pop" oriented - Chumbawamba on the Sunday night!!

Give us a try, you will not be disappointed.

If you are around South Wales or specifically on the beautiful Gower near Swansea on the weekend of the 13th-15th June 2003.You will hear the strains of folk music coming from a venue in South Gower.
The Gower Folk Festival is staged at The idyllic Gower Heritage Centre, Parkmill. A beautiful compact site with everything laid on - food ale and music from the likes of Barachois; Karen Tweed & Andy Cutting; James Fagan, Nancy & Sandra Kerr; Martin Curtis; Vasan (the international characters don't seem to work here?) from Sweden. Jenny Crook & Henry Sears; Archipelago; Pach Pi and Stefan Hannigan and a host of top local acts. There's workshops and entertainment for young and old.

IT'S THE BIG LITTLE FESTIVAL!

Oh well Kate-tell us old farts to bugger off why don't you!!!!But there's also Cleckheaton on the first weekend of July. A good little festival with quite a few sing arounds etc, plus some really good acts. Tickets are cheap. Will give you details next time you come to an old gits session!

Holmfirth definately brill, Saddleworth-just over the hill is also good.

With that-old git will shut up and leave young 'uns to have fun

See you soon

Eric

I play in an Irish band between the ages of 18 & 19. We're actually doing quite well, locally anyways...

I'm not sure what festivals I'm going to make this year, Lancaster definately, probably Liverpool although I'm not entirely certain. I hope to make Warwick again, Saddleworth and definately Fylde. Maybe a few more, depends on how things go.
