Yes I second that, in fact the whole concert was fantastic, such a diverse mix but packed with talent throughout. Congratulations to all concerned with the organisation.
Jennifer

Thanks Jennifer - it was indeed a pretty amazing concert. The highlight of a great weekend in fact. But I'm tired now and need to work on getting my voice back!

Julie - You Darlin'! What a voice! What a Guitar Player!! My gob has seldom been so smacked! I'm just sorry I missed your workshop (family matters called) but I loved your concert set at the Trinity Arts Centre. Please, please come back to Gainsborough a.s.a.p. (we've a great Folk Club just waiting for you).

Johnny.

PS: Can I come to your club?

Nice to hear something of Gainsborough Festival and Folk Club. I used to stay overnight at nearby Haxey once a week but never caught the club night. Is it twice a month at that rather good Seven Brewers Pub by the river?

I'm over that way much less nowadays but would gladly time a visit to coincide with the Julie Ellison gig suggested. It's true she's a major talent and has been creating the Gainsborough effect again and again in her rise towards what many believe will be international recognition.

In your area Epworth folk club seems a bit sporadic and I now know Blaxton is a series of events rather than a club. What do Doncaster and Scunthorpe do for their Folk Fix?

Gainsborough Folk Club is at the Eight Jolly Brewers on alternate Fridays. dates on our website
There are two clubs in Doncaster. First Saturday of the month at the Lonsdale (guests and some floor spots) and every tuesday at the Railway (singers and musicians)
Scunthorpe has "Routes to music" Third Sunday at the Berkley. Turn up and play.
However people from Scunthorpe, Worksop, Sheffield, Lincoln, Newark and othe towns at a similar radius come to Gainsborough for their "Folk fix" - draw your own conclusion!

Semper - The Gainsborough Folk Club (or as we foul-mouthed locals like to refer to it "Folk 'n' Good Ale"!) is at the Eight Jolly Brewers pub in the Town Centre (overlooks the River Trent and Whitton Gardens) every other Friday, the next club night being Friday, 3rd October.

You can check out the Folk gigs in the Lincolnshire/E. Yorkshire area on the 'Folktalk' website at http://www.folktalk.co.uk (sorry, don't know how to do a blue clicky).

For Doncaster, go to 'Folk 4 Donny' at http://www.folk4donny.freeserve.co.uk. The club happens on the first Saturday of the month and is mostly concert-format (although there are floor-spots available by prior arrangement). Nice room and very friendly crowd. You might even see me there.

The Scunny club died long ago but there's an acoustic club, 'Routes To Music' at the Berkeley Hotel on the third Sunday in each month. It's mainly local talent, arrive by 8 p.m. to book a spot. Any type of acoustic music is acceptable, not just folk. Again, nice room and the natives are friendly (even towards Gainsbronians!).

Johnny

Thanks for the comments re: Julie's set. The reaction on the night was amazing - we got a record number of mailing list sign ups and at one point we ran out of mailing list forms at the desk in the "shopping mall".

If anyone wishes to sign up to the list and couldn't find a form please contact me at John@Acoustyistics.co.uk and we will be pleased to add you to the email mailing list and/or send you details on the CD once it is released.

Strollin' Johnny: We'd be delighted to come to the Folk Club - I hope that can be arranged in the near future. We don't have a regular club but if you want contact/location details for any of the clubs or venues on Julie's gig list let me know.

Muppet: Thanks for the posting re: the Topic FC gig at the Melborn, I was working in a studio in Sheffield till late and only made it for the last few songs. Ironic when the Melborn is my regular drinking hole!

Semper: Hopefully, we'll sort a Gainsborough FC booking soon (I hope the organisers are reading this!) - also note that Julie has a booking at Rotherham Arts Centre on Wednesday 11 February 2004, with support from Karen Mulcahey.

In the mean time its back to the pubs and Folk Clubs - all great venues with landlords and organisers incredibly supportive of acoustic music. Maybe not concert settings as such but worth popping into if you can. Complete list is on the website, but includes Sheffield, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Brighton, Otley, Lancaster, Rhyl, Rochester, Hastings, Gillingham, Rotherham and Conwy with more to be confirmed shortly.

Thanks again to everyone who gave Julie such a great reception at Gainsborough. It really does make all the hard work worthwhile.

The Gainsborough Festival is now right up there with my favourite events (very much of the standard of events like Stainsby - not too large to be "too much" but large and professional enough to make a cracking weekend. Anyone who has not yet tried this event should go out of their way to do so next year. IT IS FANTASTIC !!!

Nice one John. Thanks for your comments - I know Sooz will be delighted by them, as will everyone connected with the Festival. It's a killer to put on, but positive feedback like yours makes it well worthwhile. And Julie certainly made up for our disappointment at Emily's indisposition. Hope to see Julie (and you) again soon.
Johnny

I should have mentioned that we both hope that Emily is well again very soon. It was a great gig to step into but not a way anyone wants to get a booking.

Best regards

Oh aye, forgot to ask - what's Julie's guitar? Never seen one like that before.

Oops - sorry Strollin' Johnny - only just noticed this posting.

Julie was playing the youngest of her two "Manson" guitars. Both are pretty special but this one especially so. It has a 24 fret neck and no heel with the neck joining the body at fret 15 (and a half!).

Built by Andy Manson - who currently resides and works in Devon - he is to be recommended as a highly skilled luthier and jolly nice chap.

All the best
John Robinson
