Subject: Who's for Fylde
From: Dave the Gnome
Date: 26 Aug 03 - 04:26 AM

Who's going to Fylde? I usualy buy the full weekend ticket and stay at the North Euston but I have no ticket this year and am taking the tent. Have to slum it every now and again to see how the other half live...;-) I am hoping to get there early Saturday evening. So...

Where are the good singarounds? Music sessions? All the Mudcatters?

For answers to all these questions and more watch this space!

Cheers

I think someone may understand you, Sooz, even if it is only me! Don't forget your passport though:-) Go to the dialect workshop run by the esteemed Mr Stanton (Where have you been hiding, Derek - come to Swinton!) and see if you can understand a word that is going on. Buggered if I can...

Just to clarify. I am too mean to waste my hard earned ticket in attending free events, so I have purposely not bought one this time so I can go to the singarounds and sessions without the need to utilise my ticket to the full!

I do know the mainstream festival well and have attended in some way or another for the last 20-odd years. I have seen the web site, have the brochure and bought the T-shirt. I just want to know if and where other 'catters might be gathered and where the good fringe events are.

Cheers

You're going to be knocked out by Cloudstreet. They were at the sessions at the Bedford in Sidmouth, and are brilliant. Be sure not to miss them.
I hope I didn't seem to put down the sessions at the Mount, I've probably shown up at times when not many people have been there.

John- no problem as far as I'm concerned (I help with the singaround at the mount) - I was just somewhat surprised re. enthusiasm as I have yet to me two more enthusiastic people than Rusty and Stu (Festival Ceilidh Band and young peoples events)

As you say the events are made by the people who turn up - and Friday is just "Kick Off" so many people haven't got in the mood - which is one of the reasons for the sessions.....

As you can see from the smattering of events I've mentioned above there's a lot to choose from and there's always Ron's Guided Tour at 3pm leaving the mount..... he might even sing u a song.....!

What about all you singist, coming to the Mount "Singaround" choosing a few Happy songs? no donkeys dying or ships sinking till Saturday???    ;-)


Let's face it we're all there to have a good time - and as Alan says it is the "Friendly Festival" ..............

Wyre lounge has been limited to ticket holders for a long time because of restrictions on total numbers in the Marine Hall building - it would be silly to fill the bar with non ticket holders, and then have to restrict the concert audience to comply with regs.

The over eighteen rule has caused some problems but is the Marine Hall's appication of the licensing law.

S&R

   so the limit is set for the building and not for the individual areas? that's a shame - there never seemed to be a problem before and it was nice that locals as well as the folkies could mix and share the enjoyment - does the same apply to the cafe area and foyer???

Plenty going on elsewhere though Dave!!

I shall be haunting the Mount, Steamer and Victoria Bar as often as time permits then. Probably wearing a red or blue mudcat t-shirt, carrying a drink of some sort and sporting a befuddled expression;-)

Not arriving until late afternoon/early evening Saturday but staying, hopefuly, till Monday.

Looking forward to seeing some of you about.

Anyone know when and where Magpie Lane are on? I was hoping to go for the whole weekend but family have decided to descend from all points of the compass and I've been putting them off for so long I can't do it any more. There's just a chance I might be able to escape for a few hours... if anyone knows, please could you advise.

Thanks in anticipation...

Well - a grand time indeed! Objective achieved - all fringe events! Fantastic quality in all of them and much more personal and intimate than the big concerts. I will buy a ticket and go back to the concerts as well but now I know what is happening outside I can happily mix the two.

The bonus was the music, bacon butties and tea (with rum!) in the food tent at the camp site later on. The new Gnome cave (2 man Vango Gamma 250) works very well too.

I only met one 'catter who I didn't know before, Col K. Hope to meet again soon Colonel!I did meet lots of other new friends and it was very nice to catch up with some old friends as well.

Highlights for me, musicaly? Scold Bridle at the 'Songs for the Jacinta' session. If you are reading this girls make sure you include 'Molly' more often in your sets! Brian Preston at the Victoria was even better than I remember from last time I saw him about 20 years ago. And still as funny. The Victora itself is a cracking good venue btw - Wonderful pint of Patricks Porter:-) I realy enjoyed Altar Native at the North Euston as well. Wasn't sure about all the electronic wizardry at first but it grew on me and certainly looks like a good direction in which to enhance folk music.

Well, thats about all I can remember for now. Things will filter back eventualy. Oh - one more thing - big thanks to whever arranged the weather. Magnificent!

Roll on Swinton Festival, Saturday October 25 is all I can add now.

Cheers

Was it you that recommended Cloudstreet pre-Fylde, John? If so, or whoever, thanks because I liked them too. Too much good stuff to see Tams or Bogle this time around but must second Dougie MacLean as an absolute star as a performer. Also Tanglefoot (predictably) and the renamed Threlfall Ellison and Edwards.

What I don't understand: Jane and Amanda Threlfall needed a change of name because four artists turned up when only two were expected. OK, but now three will be expected..... Amanda said that people had enough trouble pronouncing "Threlfall" once without asking them to do it twice, but a simple plural would have done.

It's OK, Sooz. Yorkshire gathering next year?

As to the name change with the Threlfalls I don't know why they don't just use their first initials - Could end up with a band called MARJ! Sound viable to me:-) I saw all four on the car park off Custom House Lane while on my way somewhere. About an hour or more later when I was heading off somewhere else I saw Roger just leaving the car!

I heard what ROAM stands for as well BTW but forgot again. can anyone enlighten me?

Got back from Fylde last night - tired, exhausted but very happy. Had a great time, cried through the 'Meet Eric Bogle' session, laughed hysterically at Les Barker and the Mrs Akroyd Band + Quest the Labrador Guide Dog (who joined in with Spencer's Dog Rover!) but had to leave during the Dougie MacLean final gig! We too enjoyed Cloudstreet and found them to be warm and friendly people as well as great performers. That's them really famous now with multiple mentions on Mudcat!!

We were at the Steamer singaround with Quartz and the Mount with Hugh Diamond also made the second half of the Friday Sing in the Festival in the new bar at the Steamer. We spent the first half watching Pete Coe.

There was so much to do, see and hear that it was difficult at times to pick and choose. All in all it was a briiliant festival. We, not being camping types, opted for B&B a few miles down the road. The weather was fantastic and the dancers were all out in colourful force on the Saturday in the Marine Gardens and surrounding areas.

My thanks to the organisers etc but in particular to Karen and Ian at the Holistic Medicine stall in the Craft Fair for the superb Indian Head Massages and the foot rubs! An oasis in the desert. During one of my massage treatments my 'better half' sneaked off and bought himself a Bodhran and took himself off to the workshop - ah well there was method in his madness eh??

The highlight for me at Fylde was Eric Bogle. Sorry if we passed you all by - we did try to say hello to familiar faces - ColK and greeted all we saw wearing 'cat T'shirts. We're getting ready to try for Swanage but definitely for Bedworth (booked up already!) which should also be a great festival - see you there folks?

Have finally got round to catching up on threads this afternoon and have to agree that Fylde was great this year. Highlights for me had to be Strawhead (for those of you that know me, this shouldn't be a surprise), Tanglefoot, Mrs Ackroyd Band, Cloudstreet, Witches of and Dougie McLean. Didn't get to see John Tams and Barry Coope due to a schedule class (Strawhead :-) ) but hope to hear them at somepoint. I'd also like to thank all those of you who gleefully took the piss out of me over the weekend due to my complete lack of voice (what a time to get laryngitis) and just want you all to know that it's getting better and while it's still not gone completely I can atleast make myself heard now.

Looking forward to next year already
