Hi Brid, unfortunately I didn't make it last night either, but I have just been speaking on the phone to Bassic, he tells me that it was very quiet, and numbers were way down on last week.
I know people are busy, and many people work shifts etc and have other commitments, but it would be nice to see lots of people there.

I will repeat my request to anyone that has been, PLEASE give your feedback, ie what did you think of it, venue, format, etc.
Please also give your ideas, whilst I have booked the room, [that's the easy bit!], I have no experience of organising anything like this, so I NEED advice!

To anyone that has not been yet, please support it if you can, it is FREE entry, and we have full use of a recently refurbished concert room.

jOhn

At the moment the club is running under the (not very)original but descriptive working title of "Hull Folk Club" and is happening every thursday. Last week was a great success and seems to be filling a gap for such a venue in the City. It will be nice to get a few more new faces to swell the ranks and hopefully pursuade a few of the top local musicians and performers to come out and give us a try!! There were lots of ideas floating around last week and I am sure they will start to form themselfs into a plan of action with some sort of a "programme" in the next few weeks. If you want to be part of that process or just listen/sing/play have a bear then come along. You will be very welcome!!

Thanks Linda.
Did everyone else that went enjoy it?
All comments/feedback, suggestions etc are welcome.
Hopefully it will be a sucsess.
Thanks Mick for doing such a good job of running the first night, it was good to see a few new faces there, feedback on the night was good, everyone said they enjoyed it.

There is a few ideas we could try out, to get people going/keep interest ie=
There is a lot of folk music experts locally such as Steve Gardham, Dr Chris Bearman, Jim Eldon, Henry Aryton, Harry Gurevitch etc.
Many of these have written books, had academic papers published etc, we could maybe invite some of them there occasionaly to give a talk.
Beginners Workshops, in various instruments,
Singing, and or Songwriting workshops.
Theme Nights, ie Irish Night, Scottish Night etc.
Folk Music Quiz, and raffles during the break each night.
Any other ideas are welcome.

To let people know about it, we could put posters in music shops and places like that.

I just got back, it was brilliant!
Great to see so many people there, there were 22 of us, not bad for a first night!
A mixture of mudcatters ans local folkies,
there was Bassic,
Beardy
Bill Sables
Brid Widder
me 9jOhn from Ull
Linda Kelly
Les from Hull
Ossonflags
Ploughflyer
Rambling Rose
and the rest was a mixture of local folkies.

I would like to thank everybody for going, especially them that travelled from far way
Sorry about the confusion over the room, but we got into the booked room in the end!

It was a good night, loads of differnt songs, and some nice traditional tunes from Bassic, and his friend, [that scottish bloke with the bagpies, i forgot his name now],
and a bit of world music from Soo with her African drum.

I know it's not really fair to pick out individuals, in case I miss anyone out, but the best bits for me was hearing Mick 9 Ossonflags), sing Sparehand, and Bill singing Rubenstein Remembers.

It was good to see so many people there, I felt a bit gilty for not singing anything myself, but my singing is rubbish, and if I start singing, they will all run away!

I might sing a short song, or read a poem or soimething in a few weeks, if i feel brave enough.

If you enjoyed it, hopefully we will see you in there again, If you didn't enjoy it [for whatever reason], say so, and give your ideas/suggestions etc.
All comments, feedback etc is very welcome.

Cheers Mick. 9Mick is not a folkie!, but I know he is a good singer, lead singer with Punch the Horse, [best band down our street], and he is keen to see traditional singing encouraged, and I know he will pass on any relavent tips to beginners]
i'm sure Les will do the same for any musicians.
I saw Maggie this morning, 9Mrs Les), and she is taking her friend called Karen, and telling other people about this.
I realised today why Maggie is called The Fragrant One, 9 She is an aromatherapissed, and is an Indian Head Massager as well)

I agre with Les, ie if anybody goes and doesn't like it, they should say why, and give their ideas.
This is a new thing, and we are open to ideas/suggestions.

John, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease do not call me a folkie.

I will try and get there round about 9.30ish but all depends on shift.We had a long discussion about your venture at the Whitby fest and you know I, along with others, will give you all the support and encouragement you need.I put the word around both at Whitby and the Shanty fest. so expect to see a few.

I'll try to be there at 8.30 so if anybody fancies a few tunes, a chat or a bit if a muck about - see you there.

I have to agree with jOhn (no relation!). This venue will be what we all want, or rather what each of us wants, as far as is possible so that it fits in with what others want. So please be as 'vocal' as possible about what you like so that you can be 'instumental' in providing the local folk community with a venue that fits all needs. Don't just go once, dislike it and then not go again without telling others what you disliked.

Yes, it's 9PM start Beardy.Though Les suggested to me that a beginers session/workshop from 8.30 till 9.00 could be a good idea, I agreed with his suggestion, so if anyone is intersted in this idea, you could go at 8.30pm.
I have recieved a few PM's about this from various people, asking about the format, who are we going to book? etc.
The format is whatever people prefer, there is a small stage there, but nobody is forced to use it, I'm not sure yet, who we are going to book, it depends on interest.I have decided that the first 4 weeks wil be singers/musicians nights and will be free admission to get people interested.
I would like to stress that this is not a Mudcat event, but an event where Mudcatters along with everyone else are welcome.
So if any non member is reading this, you will be as welcome as anyone else.
I would also like to stress that all singers/musicians regardless of age, ability or nationality are welcome.There is a large Kurdish community in Hull, many of whom are musicians, also my boss [Bangladeshi], plays the flute, I have told him he is welcome to come along and play a couple of tunes.
Also if anyone is just starting out in folk singing/ playing and wants an oppertunity to have a go at stuff in front of an appreciative audience then feel free, many of the folkies around here Les, Mick etc have got years of experience, and I'm sure they will pass on any tips/advice etc.
I would like to publicly thank everybody that has offered their support, a couple of people have refered to this as my new folk club, it isn't, it's everybodys! All I did was book the room!
There will be no rules as such, but I would like to politely request that the tables on the left as you walk in be reserved for non-smokers, [the tables on the right have windows above them that we can open].
Hopefully see you all in there!

It's bang in the middle of the Spanish Quarter. Just follow the "Latin Hull" signs and the AA yellow signs with the sombrero symbol on from the south. Or the north, come to that. Or the west, thinking about it. But not the east because that's the sea that is.

From the Spring Bank West, junction it is the 2nd street on the right.
Anyone coming from outside of Hull, just follow the signs for "KC Stadium", go past the stadium, and onto Chanterlands Avenue.
