Don't wear loosely knit sweaters when playing accordion. Those little pins that hold bits of the accordion together get stuck in the sweater, and you end up playing your clothing, which has big holes in it later.

Peter, that's what we call 'em down south. The ones that bite are called, snackin' tutles.

I can't exactly call it a wardrobe faliure...However, there was a time when my second song of the performance required the use of the capo that I had in the pocket of my sportcoat. The problem was that I was so nervous I couldn't get my trembling fingers to find the pocket while I attempted to introduce the upcoming song. Eventually they found the capo and all was well.

By the way, after the show someone remarked at how cool and collected I looked throughout the performance...If they only knew!

Not exactly a wardrobe failure but in this case we LOST one tit!
One night our trio was playing at Earls in Chicago (Not The Earl of Oldtown - the place Earl had after that). Our guitar player had a few drinks to calm his nerves before the show and was feeling a bit tired by the middle of the set. For support, he leant on the back wall of the stage only to discover that it was just a curtain - no wall - and promptly disappeared backwards off a 12" high stage (guitar and all) in the middle of a song. He was slightly behind us (visually as well as musically), so we didn't see what happened. By the time we realized there was a problem, the curtain had flopped back into place and he was nowhere to be seen. The remainder of the group, suddenly a duo with a much lighter sound and looking frantically around us for our third member, struggled to the end of the song.
I wish I had been in the audience because it must have been quite spectacular.

Germany 1970's TV show, national. Arrived late and had one clean shirt in bottom of bag, as it was the end of a tour. Quickly changed, ran in to studio, took marks ready for broadcast live in three minutes. I felt a cold atmosphere. Checked fly, etc, all okay. Ten seconds before going on air to sing a jolly song I glanced above me at the monitor and saw that the director had zoomed in on a badge sewn on my shirt pocket (sewn on badges had been a fad a couple of years before and I'd forgotten about it).
The programme started with that image as I began the song.
The badge was the Star of David, with "Never Again" underneath.
Now, the sentiment was fine by me, but I must admit there's a time and a place for everything.
They were very polite afterwards, but I drove without stopping until I crossed the Dutch border!

OK, not in Folk Music, but in a play during which Folk Music was being performed :

Lorca's "Yerma" was an exciting, innovative, production in Darwin, Northern Territory (Australia) - c. 1990 - and all actors were seated on stage the whole show.

One lass, named Nic (appropriately), rose to her feet to begin her part, only to find the elastic in her knickers had lost its former qualities. All she could do was step out of them, kick them under her seat and then "on with the show"!! Of course, she was always known as "Knickerless" after that ...

Another night in the same show, a couple were doing a wild dance scene, when one breast escaped the costume. Unlike Ms JJ, this was accidental though ...

Cheers!

Although not strictly a folk event, at one Inland Waterways festival two friends of mine were collecting money for the "Waterways Recovery Group" in a pantomime-style canal horse costume. It was a fairly warm day and the Lesley in the front end was only wearing a tee shirt on her upper body. They were ushered into the main marquee to receive a prize for making the biggest WRG collection. The National Chairman of the Inland Waterways Association asked them to come out of the costume to accept the award. Lesley took off the head portion and her tee shirt stayed with it. She didn't realise immediately what had happened and there is a wonderful topless photo of her - she is a very big girl in that department. It definitely wasn't planned.

I've learned from bitter experience never to wear a shirt which has buttons on the right when playing fiddle. I have managed to catch the heel of the bow more than once in the gap between buttons and have it fly out of my hand mid-tune.

Also, limit long dangly earrings to the right ear only as they will invariably catch in your strings, as will long hair not swept back over your shoulder.

I was a member of the Young Farmers club here in UK when I was young and in my prime. We used to take part in the Entertainment competition held every other year. I was given the part of Olivia Newton-John in her role in "Grease". I wore a low cut tight black top and black satin jeans. (yea yea) I had to wear a strapless bra. The bit I performed (the last scene in the film "You're the one that I want" etc) went well, Then we all had to come back on for the curtain call. We all ended up on a loud note and our arms in the air... then I looked down! I had four (4) boobs! My bra had slipped and I don't know when it happened! Appropriate really considering we were farmers!

Robin...Good idea!

Last summer my guitar/fiddle duo was joined by a friend on various hand drums (talking drums, bodhran, djembe etc) for a community concert in a park overlooking Lake Huron. As the sun set on the cool summer evening we played two full sets of tunes and shared a wonderful social time during the intermission. Had a great time.

Later photographs revealed that the drummer (who stood for the whole thing) was flying low with his shirt tail pulled through the zipper, and my sunglasses (we faced the sunset) were crooked. If anyone noticed I hope they thought it was part of our image.

Sorry, no boobs other than the band members.

Does morris dancing count? If so, I was playing for a solo jig at a street fair. The vigorous young fellow dancing the jig wasn't about to stop dancing just because of a silly little thing like a split crotch seam in his breeches. He also, apparently, wasn't about to wear briefs under said breeches, which became *extremely* evident when the squat capers began and his dingle-dangles dingle-dangled...much to the consternation of the onlookers.

Now there may be some who are not aware of the expression "Commando Style" but I am sure you can work it out!! Some people (Janet Jackson/Grenoside Sword team) will do anything for cheap publicity. Janet just has better PR people.

"But then one day a fall of stones had pinned me to the ground
And all the lads come rushing up, aye, and quickly gathered round
And as they tried to pull me clear,
               well, you should've heard them shout
For me pitshirt was all ripped away, and so, they found me out"

OR, "The Female Rambling Sailor" (trad) :

"When a snowy white breast in sight it came

If you use a plectrum occasionally, but play mainly fingerstyle, don't store the plectrum between your teeth while doing an intro to a song. Singing with a plectrum between your teeth ain't easy - trust me; I speak from experience.

I've been fortunate, but I've watched (from the stage) others not quite so lucky.

A few years ago at a St. Patrick's benefit for a local school, we all held our breath as one of the kilted female sword dancers had her kilt let go. She managed to not miss a step, but only had one arm aloft -- the other was clutching her kilt to keep it wrapped around, close and ON. We ALL breathed a sigh of relief when the tune and dance finished and she could escape modestly.

What a trooper.

The group in which i play landed a very posh function gig in a five star hotel in Dublin, way out of our usual venue catagory.

For the occasion, we decided to wear a uniform (shudder) so we brought with us black trousers, with rather strikng bright orange shirts, with black and orange striped ties.

In good form we drove to Dublin, in jeans and sweatshirts, arrived at the gig, where we discovered to our absolute horror, that our "uniforms" were identical to the uniforms worn by the bar staff. even the bloody ties were the same.

As we had no choice we donned the uniform, minus the ties, as that would have been too embarrasing, but it was commented on quite frequently throughout the evening

Lesson?: NEVER WEAR A F***ING UNIFORM TO PLAY!!!

Subject: Super Bowl tragedy one year on


WASHINGTON, DC—As the nation approaches the one-year anniversary of the Super Bowl XXXVIII tragedy, an FCC study shows that millions of U.S. children were severely traumatized by the exposure to a partially nude female breast during the Feb. 1, 2004 halftime show.

Above: Jackson irrevocably damages millions of American children. "No one who lived through that day is likely to forget the horror," said noted child therapist Dr. Eli Wasserbaum. "But it was especially hard on the children."

The tragic wardrobe malfunction occurred approximately 360 days ago, during Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake's performance of "Rock Your Body," when Timberlake tore Jackson's costume, accidentally revealing her right breast.

"By the time CBS cut to an aerial view of the stadium, the damage was done," said Wasserbaum, who has also worked extensively with orphaned and amputee children in Third World war zones. "I've found that children can be amazingly resilient, but this event was too much for many of them to take. The horrible image of that breast is likely to haunt them for the rest of their lives."

According to the 500-page report filed by the FCC, more than 90 percent of the children who saw the exposed breast said they were "confused and afraid."

"Mommy has dirty chest bumps," said a 5-year-old boy quoted in one of the thousands of case studies compiled by the FCC. "She's like the bad lady on TV. I'm afraid Mommy will take off her shirt and scare everyone. I hate Mommy."

Girls were traumatized as well, often expressing apprehensions about sexual development. According to Wasserbaum, one 8-year-old girl told her parents that she didn't "want to get evil breasts."

Wasserbaum said children of both genders associate their trauma with footballs, presumably because of the context in which they were exposed to the breast.

A great number of children who witnessed the tragedy are still plagued by nightmares of sun-shapes that recall Jackson's nipple ring. Of the infants who saw the breast, 76 percent are unwilling to breast feed or use a bottle, forcing their parents to nourish them intravenously.

"When the tragedy took place, we knew it would cause psychological trauma, but we had no idea how long the effects would last," Wasserbaum said."Our worst fears have been confirmed. It will take years to repair the damage."

Cases of deviant sexual development induced by breast-glimpsing are widespread amongst older children. Pathologies range from schoolyard exhibitionism to gender-role confusion and violent shirt-tearing.

"The FCC imposed the maximum $27,500 penalty on each of the 20 CBS-owned television stations," Wasserbaum said. "But the government offered no recompense to the individuals exposed to the breast. And neither Jackson nor Timberlake has ever specifically apolgized to the children whose lives they ruined, or donated a penny for the adolescents' psychiatric care."

The horrible image of that breast is likely to haunt them for the rest of their lives.

Do mothers blindfold their babies before they breast-feed them?

Or do they actually not only let them look at the horrible image of breasts but even let them suck at them?

How many babies are traumatized each year in that way by their own mothers?

The largest wardrobe failures tend to be during festivals. Quite often the organisers don't expect performers to change costume, so there are quite a few of us behind stage trying to change as fast as we can, with half the town walking past...

BTW Bat Goddess, part of the costume specification foe highland dancers, of both sexes, is 'discreet underwear, in a plain colour, prefably black'

The real thing to worry about in the sword dance is kicking them across the room, or just out of place enough to make your steps more awkward
