righty, the site will be operational again in the next few days
ive been stupidly busy recently with 2 jobs, flu and enroling for university. but ive sorted out new hosting with dad (andy) and im just waiting for the domain name (www.miskinfolk.co.uk) to get transfered to the new location. once thats done i'll put the site back online and hopefully all shall once again be groovy.
watch this space... or check miskinfolk.co.uk once in a while
on a strange note, i temporarily placed a reduced copy of the website onto my university webspace (doing computer science has benefits) you can get there by going to:
this linky here

its not been updated in a while because dad cant access my account so hes not been able to update it, but its a basic start.
we dont have a proper 2005 site yet, but im going to try and get that designed and written (making it dynamic and clever see) by the end of october depending on work from university.

Hope all this satisfies your quench for miskiny type materials.
as i said, the site will be back up and runnin within the week if all goes well.

What about you, Yas? Remember - I was all growed up and married when my daddy all but adopted you when you were a little girl. I'm still proud to call you my special, little, 'almost' sister. I suppose that makes ME ancient, but remember you're as old as you feel - personally, I'm looking for a toy boy to feel so I feel young!

Can't promise we'll be at Miskin - I got to this year's, didn't get out of the camper, and ended up having to take five months off work!

Hurrah,
sorted out the site, weve got the basic site up and running on new and propa servers now :) im just setting up a forum at time of writing too so hopefully we can get a wee community going or summin.
some people might not be able to access the site for a day or two yet, its all to do with "propagation of DNS entries" which basically means, not all the ISP knows that our site exist and they say "waaa? what site you want? Nah, sorry mate, wont have the parts for a few weeks and it'll cost extra to install" or maybe "site cant be found" on the more sensible browsers.... anyway, i digress...
We Have Site! hurrah again
sorry about the ramble, its just ive been workin on this for 3 days now and it was getting a bit frustrating.
miskinfolk.co.uk
and the forum might/will be at miskinfolk.co.uk/forum but not JUST yet :)
p.s. im not advertising the festival, im just stopping people from emailing us about the site being broken :) althou a bit of advertising is good sometimes too

Looks like I dropped out of the system again!! Ne'er mind!
Heard a rumour at Banbury that I was having trouble booking the Mill...Ah?? not so.. But I have now realised that someone must have overheard me saying I was having trouble with "The Site" i.e. the Web site, not the same thing!!
The Mill is booked and ready and even the website is nearly up and running again. A first taste of guests and soon more to follow.
See you there?
Oh, and it mustn't be too big a secret or one day no-one will turn up!!

Listing it here (not really advertising) is unlikely to do it any harm.
A quick search on previous threads will show you that this is the fourth successive Miskin which has been heralded in this manner.
So something must be going right!

More responsive? they're quite difficult to steer under normal conditions... If they get any 'flightier' they are likely to develop a high-speed weave, similar to early 80's Kawasaki Z900's.

Why do I keep wanting to say Minisk? have I been brainwashed by Russians or something.

I would love to come, and might, unless I am throwing eggs, chasing cheeses, building Green-men or other "Please let it be Summer soon" activities.

Howdy all, glad to see everyones getting all keen and fired up for another festival, turning into a bit of a regular thing now... we might have to start organising something a bit. :)
anyways, im just gonna have a quick plug for the forum weve got on the miskin site, dads gonna link to it from the main page of miskin. Check it out and see what you think.

www.miskinfolk.co.uk/forum

if you have any requests for something for the website, or the main festival dont hesitate to put them there, its a cheesy line, but we appreciate any constructive feedback we get from you lot. Im currently working with dad on sorting out some new pictures and things for the site. I may make a gallery you lot can add your own snaps to, but we'll see eh? ;)

Hello all, call to arms time. Despite all the secrecy it seems to have leaked out that Miskin is on again this year…We all know its getting bigger so we need more help. Ideally I would like a team to help set up on Thursday and Friday morning and then relax and enjoy but be ready to help again on the crucial Monday morning. I also need anyone with cooking expertise to do a shift in the kitchen. Bar staff will be a team unto themselves but please contact me if you have expertise in such matters. The dispensing of that is, not the consumption. Lastly of course we need those festival workhorses, the stewards. Door duty, car parking and general ticketing is not exactly arduous at Miskin but it has to be done. As for the rest of you just come along and do try to enjoy yourselves will you!! Oh by the way, after much deliberation I have decided we must follow public opinion and stop smoking in the lounge bar. This is where people are eating after all and it is the only complaint I have had in the last few years. I hope we wont have to limit numbers but to make sure just order your tickets now, there is an on line booking form on the website. www.miskinfolk.co.uk

I picked-up a leaflet for the Gosport Easter Festival at 'Celtic Connections' in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall last week and ordered my ticket by credit card before hearing anything about Miskin. Although there's plenty about Miskin here on mudcat it's a pity the organisers didn't have any publicity leaflets at 'Celtic Connections'. I hope all who go to Miskin enjoy themselves as much as I will seeing the many fine singers and musicians at Gosport.

The biggest disappointment for this year is that I now can't come! Due to vaguaries of the railways who don't run the daily train to Brighton on Sunday night because it is Easter, I either spend all day travelling and spend an hour on two separate railway stations if I miss the 6 minute connection (some hope)or I don't come at all. So.. Jon will be there and I expect you all to phone me from the sessions so I can join in at home. I could always tell you a story or lead a song via the web though... Andy... isn't Toby a computer genius.... this could be a first.. a virtual me!!!

Sorry you can't get to Miskin Cats due to the vagaries of the railway timetable but I think you can get to Gosport / Fareham. That festival is held in Fareham now (nothing much takes place in Gosport) and my railway timetable indicates there are frequent direct trains between Brighton and Fareham even on Easter Sundays.

It will take more than the rail companies to keep us mudcatters away from our music. There's always a festival somewhere within reach by rail!

Havnt quite cracked this signing on businass yet. This is actually Miskin man here:::
Just to dispel any rumours that this secret festival is even secret from British Rail, we actually have a half decent service most days. Here's a quick version of the times over the Easter period

On Friday Saturday and Monday there is an hourly service from Cardiff to Pontyclun, (10 mins walk at most) at approx 20 past every hour until 2031 then a last one at 2230
And from Pontyclun to Cardif
10 to the hour with the last one at 20:51

We just don't go anywhere 'cept chapel on Sundays it seems
Just two from Cardiff 19:57 2214
And one back at 1956

Simple answer for everyone but Cats is to arrive on Friday and STAY.
I know Cats is in an unavoidable situation and letter from Mum has been accepted. Cats has supported Miskin from the early days and will be sadly missed.

It's that I don't want to end up missing half of everything to get to brighton and I can't take all my posh conference stuff plus camping gera as Jon will have the camper in Wales while I'm in Cornwall!

After Miskin we are going over to stay with Gervase and Mary Jane for a few days so won't be back until April 1.

There is a singaround (home for waifs and strays) in the Railway, Ditchling Rise on Wednesdays and a similar thing in the Jolly Brewer Ditchling Road on Sundays (same people as Wed so same style).

Other than that you will need to travel to Lewes or Seaford on Thursday and Friday respectively.

Ther is a website with all this on it but I am at work and don't have the URL at present.

Just back from Crediton *smile* & looking forward to Miskin!

For those going to Miskin on the Thursday, the Newport Folk Club is on, should be a Singers night. Don't think I'll get there till the Friday but I'm sure they'll welcome Miskinites with open arms.

Have been chatting to a few people about Mudcatters organising a raffle at Miskin this year. Apparently this used to happen (prizes were mostly Easter Eggs - eggcellent tradition!!) but I don't recall it happening in the past couple of years.

The Festival Crew are all up to their ears with lots of stuff to do, so I wondered if it was something we could sort out? Each bring something to put in, that sort of thing. Miskin's charity this year is the Road Rose Association ( www.roseroad.co.uk - web-page doesn't load for me at the moment), so it would be nice to raise some extra money for them.

What do you think?

How can I put this??
When the Miskin Arms changed hands some while ago it changed into a restaurant - with, effectively, a side bar. It was felt by the new management that folk music and the festival weekend itself were not appropriate to the new image. Because of this we have over the years honed our bar management skills to provide what we are now proud to think of as Real pub" within the Mill and left the Miskin Arms to the locals with whom we have established mutual respect.

In the past we have finished work at a reasonable time Thursday evening and then travelled down to the Newport Folk Club some 15 miles away. This year we have the use of the Mill from Thursday afternoon with the idea of being a bit more ready and less tired out come the start on Friday. Volunters are welcome by prior arrangement but we will not be ready to start the festival proper until midday Friday (when the licences come into force) I hate to see a thirsty man so bring a few cans or something suitable for thursday evening, if you are not popping over to Newport.
If you can't read between the lines please email or phone me for detailed arrangements.

Pat Spoons won't be there unfortunately, she'll be with Baggywrinkle at Lancaster (She's a busy little girl see). If music rather than song is your thing, there's a sesh (fiddles and stuff) at the Canton Hotel in Canton, Cardiff on Thursdays (about 11 miles, oh, and Andy, Newport club is 22 from Pat's house so it would be about the same from the Mill - ooh there's pedantic!).

I'll be running the Folk Club on Monday afternoon (at the Windsor Hotel as usual). I'll be winding up at about 5pm as I have a gig that evening, but the room is booked until stop-tap for those who want to carry on - but be warned, last year the pub booked a loud cabaret act in the room below in the evening, which made that part of the sesh difficult.

Notwithstanding the above reservations, I see no reason to deprive such as yourselves from the full enjoyment of a weekend with normal "folk thinking" people, and I am sure a suitable solution can be found.

I hold nothing against those less fortunate, beardless, chappies I even let them come along to jolly old Miskin. Some of my best friends haven't got beards come to think of it - there's My Guru, Scooby doo,MBS Lynne,Cats at work, Morticia - I could go on......(Have been known to go on a bit, don't you know!!)

Andy,

Your beard may have shrunk but mine has grown a bit.

Did I sleep through the transplant or was I drunk again?

I go a phone call this morning telling me that I am going into Hospital on Wednesday and having my long awaited knee op. I will be home Thursday, but remembering the last op on the other knee, wont be feeling like festivalling until at least Monday and definately not upto running a workshop.
I shall sit with a bottle of port and my feet up and think of you all.

I've had a request to allow impromptu Morris at Miskin......Allow? I would positively encourage such a thing. In days of Yore we had a very solid dance base. Things have changed though and sadly I cant guarantee suitable wet weather contingency plans. If anyone wants to bring Kit on the chance of a dance then we have plenty of room on the courtyard. And if it rains you'll just have to drown your sorrow.
Or of course, carry on dancing as they mad buggers from Pompey did some years ago (see photos on site)

Jillie told me to get myself onto mudcat pronto and beg for victims/volunteers - but I see Miskin Man has beaten me to it. However, as a mudcat virgin, (even though a MBS and its my 2nd Miskin,) it's a bit scary, so its taken me a day or two!

Yes, it was I - I'm the one who asked Andy if we could run a scratch Border side at Miskin (as an offshoot of Herbaceous Border which creates mayhem at Sidmouth)So - bring your dancing shoes - and, if you dance already, your sticks and raggies etc (and even spares if you have them)

ANYONE is welcome - whether or not you've ever danced before. And we'll need some musicians too. Not sure quite when and where it will be, but I'll keep you posted. It would be great to know who might be interested - so do say 'hi'.

And thanks, Andy, for everything, including beating me to it. I think you deserve the 300.

Andy only said impromptu Morris: he never mentioned specific brands such as Border. What about us Cotswold types? :-)) And will there be any swordies or cloggies?

From my experience of tills, any clerk number should do. Usually there's a button marked 'clerk id' or similar, you press that enter a number such as 1 and then press it again. Not sure about your particular brand of till though

Looks like we'll manage to get through the weekend somehow then, parties in tents notwithstanding *grin*

Don't forget the RAFFLE!!! Nip out & pick up an Egg or something (booze or booby) to donate. I've seen eggs at 3 for £4.00 at Sainsburys so there's no excuse - donate 1, eat 2 - no problem! Don't go mad, I already have (never a truer word spoken, eh?). My donation may just be the top prize - a Fabulous Choc Express Egg that I couldn't justify buying for myself......

Pass prizes to me on arrival & I'll get them stored away from temptation somewhere. If you can't find me (in the bar possibly - well, there's the Grand Eliminator to think about), I'm sure that Andy won't mind if you leave them at 'reception' for me. Hoping to put up draw results on Easter Sunday, probably around lunchtime!

And of course, bring your pennies for the raffle tickets that I'll be selling frantically. If anyone feels they can help out, please PM me before Friday lunchtime!

Severe post-festival depression setting in already! A most fantastic weekend altogether (apart from rides in ambulances and waiting in A&E!) I don't think I've ever fitted quite so much into one short festival! In four days I've sung, played, run a folk club, danced border Morris for the first time, watched three lots of friends performing, danced in a 'scratch' ceilidh, played Pooh sticks, Walked across a bridge parapet, played lots of cool games around Jan's van, drunk a lot of cider, hugged loads of people, talked quite a lot, laughed, been part of the dragon in a procession, learnt practised and sung a song I'd never heard before with three others doing harmonies and things...... I didn't actually get time to SLEEP much, but you can't have everything!

I also met a good number of Mudcatters I've never met before who are now on my ever-growing list of friends.

Andy and all the team..thank you sooooomuch. It was truly brilliant. I think for the first time in 23 years, a festival has actually eclipsed Sidmouth for me!! There is no higher compliment.

Lots and lots of love and hugs

Many, many thanks to Andy & all the lovely, friendly team. Nice people, great singing, lovely venue, such a nice easy-going, friendly event with time for me to meet even more nice people & to feel part of one big family. Hi to all I've met over the weekend.

(Keep at the Border Lynne) Anyone can join "Herbaceous Border" scratch morris ~ at festivals throughout the season ~ it's great fun! Looking forward to seeing some you soon at other festivals.

Shame it had to end, so here's to the next one.

Love to all,

Rosie S

The old Miskin Magic has worked again - and better than ever before. Three days of wonderful fare for absolutely everyone - singers, dancers, musicians, kids, performers, spectators. And what a friendly bunch both providing and consuming all the offerings, under the expert and benign control of Andy Jillie and Jo.

And special thanks and hugs from me to the Lynnettes (Linnets?). When I made a request on Friday for Rock My Heart to be sung sometime over the weekend, little did I expect that it would lead to the formation of a new group to learn, rehearse and perform the song in time for Sunday night. Ladies, your performance was absolutely spine-tingling, and I am absolutely speechless that you would go to such lengths. You have made a happy man very old :-)

Miskin truly does go that extra mile. Many thanks to every one of you who came and helped to make the last four days one of the most magical times.

I got back last night after the long drive back. I had to drag myself away early. Thanks to Andy and everyone else involved. To a newcomer punter like myself they made the whole thing run smoothly and apparently effortlessly.
And I don't know why but my throat hurts.
See you next year.

My highlights:

Jon Heslop & Kathy Wallis in the Cottage Saturday teatime - passionate.
Mary Humphries & Anahata - new to me and so entertaining.
The magnificent work done by Jan the Van and her crew for the parade - the dragon and hobby horses. Plus the the triple pipes of Vicky, Johnny and Colman leading the parade.
The quiet sessions upstairs where you could sing or play what you wanted rather than do crowd-pleasers.
Luasca (Harriet Earlis & Colman Connolly) with Vicky Swan & Johnny Dyer sitting in. When quality musicians like these get together, they don't just jam, they produce something magical and exciting.
Jon Heslop again, Sunday late in Nelly Dean's - sorry, don't know what the song was, just loved the joyous harmony singing.

Fabulous!!! What can I say (having only 5 minutes lunch-break left)?? Loved every second, including the hangovers & scrubbing the kitchen on Monday!

Thanks to AllCats for all the help & support for the MudRaffle - not to mention all the Fab prizes! We managed to raise £313.13 (a numeric palindrome which only needed the extra 3p popping in) for the Rose Road Association. It was handed to 'Michael's Mum' who was absolutely delighted and will be trying to find her way in here to thank us all personally. The last unclaimed raffle prize (the lovely liquer chocolate egg) was handed over too for Michael (over 18) to enjoy. A fitting end to a really enjoyable bit of fund-raising. Thanks again everyone who came, gave, helped & didn't get pissed off at my novice sales techniques......

Will pop in later (if I can find my way) to post the MudSigner List - what an enormous amount of Catters there were.. I can't imagine how they all managed to get in the MudShoot!!

Thanks so much to Andy, Jillie & the Team, it's just Magic!

Great to see that people enjoyed the Border stuff. I worked out that over 40 people danced, only 5 of whom were 'Borderers' and most had never morrissed before at all.
A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL THE MUSICIANS WHO PLAYED FOR US. You were magnificent - and we couldn't have done it without you.

'Herbaceous Border' hopes to dance at Upton (probably 6pm daily under the Bridge) and various other festivals during the year (as well as Sidmouth where it first began. I'll post details somewhere. And I'll sign onto mudcat properly soon. Don't want to be a guest for ever.

Having mentioned some of the things I did over the weekend, I forgot to say that one of my highlights was seeing Rosanna, Tom and Louise get the trophy. Andy is absolutely right in saying they are our future. They (and of course all the other kids too) make sure that there IS a future, not just for folk music, but for the whole folk ethos. They got the most applause I heard all weekend (and that's saying something!) and they were all so pleased, it nearly made me cry. It was a wonderful introduction to folk festivals for Louise.

Great Festival Andy - I had a wonderful time - did more singing than I've done at any time since my stroke. The harmonies in the bar were magic - and I don't think it was just "Beer Hearing Aids".

Thanks to everyone for their encouragement and good wishes - and in return, hope that Mick Tems and all the other "Strokey Folkies" manage to progress further in their recoveries.

Perhaps Andy should apply for a grant from the NHS for the theraputic powers of the festival (especially Jude's cuddles), which have definitely made me feel much better.

In reponse to Splott Man's message about the number of musicians at the ceilidh and Buttered Peas – I was playing a familiar Welsh tune of striking similarity called Pwt Ar Y Bys (A Vamp On The Fingers) which the Romany harpers would use for a warm-up exercise. Perhaps the story revolves around the age-old sessions, somewhere on the border between England and Wales, where English musicians would hear Welsh harpers playing this tune – and they would spread the tune across Cheshire, Lancashire or all other localities, each carrying a delightful mishearing of the name of the tune. (Mishearings and mistakes are all too common in tradition - (The New Scorpion Band researched a group of musicians in the Napoleonic Wars. The members had as their party piece a tune called The Downfall Of Pears, despite composer M. Becourt's naming of this piece The Downfall Of Paris.) I'm not claiming which came first, because both Welsh and English musicians had a habit of totally ignoring political boundaries. Just compare Pwt Ar Y Bys to Buttered Peas, and draw your own conclusions.

Hi Dave,
Strokey folkies - I really do like that!
I was talking to Chris at Sunday's ceilidh about the important need to form an alternative stroke association which would cater for musicians, and you seem to have hit the nail on the head! The bar-cum-singing room was just too busy for me to have a good talk with you, but with three of us, mountains can be moved. Watch this space...

Seems to have gone quiet!!!!

Right then if you've done with the thank yous. It's my go now.

THANK YOU, all of you - you have generated enthusiasm and interest in an incredible way. I can see no easy way of limiting tickets but long ago went down the path of limited publicity, and with the Miskin Mud Moggies on board, publicity went to the right people.
Special thanks of course to My Guru, for the idea the enthusiasm and the follow through to raise such a grand amount with the raffle. I know that the Rose Road Association were amazed at the response for a cause so far from Wales. But then most of those who come to Miskin are from a fair way away.
Although I am never going to run another one, plans are well started for next year, with guests booked and even ticket reservations already! This is the first chance I've had to write any sort of chat and today I am taking Eyelander away for a few days in Suffolk. On my return I shall attack the website and attempt some sort of report for those that missed it.
Tarra each,

Andy

Hello!
Miskin is such a lovely start to the festval season, (just warm enough not to need a hot water bottle in the van). We had such a great time! I mentioned that I was doing this thing called podcasts, well, I did a podcast for Miskin. It's never going to recapture the feeling or the atmosphere, but I thought that you might want to have a listen, especially Andy might want to listen to the the third track that I chose...
Miskin Podcast

If you're not familiar with podcasting, it's just an mp3 file to listen to a bit like radio, you just need to download it.
If you're familiar with blogging and rss, it's basically an audio blog that you can rss.

I hope that's ok, I was a bit nervous about mentioning it here...
>looks bashful<

Thanks for a great weekend anyway!
:-))
Vicki

Just got back from Conference....

Thanks to Cllr for getting me to Bristol in time for my train. We hit a stag near Burlesdon and all had to get off the train, then catch two others and I didn't get to Brighton until the early hours of the morning, while all you lot were still singing your heads off!! Never mind, I did make it on to Radio 4 on Tuesday afternoon and evening, plus the Times, Independent, Guardian and Morning Star, so it was worth it!! I have a little something for us to share next time you are down... hurry before it all goes.

Thanks to Splott Man for saying kind things about our set on Saturday. I nearly stopped singing in the chorus of Lifeboat Prayer cos the harmonies were soooo good.

c/Ref the Alternative Folk Awards... now you know why Andy won a Lifetime Achievement Award for Miskin....YES!!!

Thanks to Andy and Jillie.big hugs.xxx

What was the song that Jon Heslop sang on Sunday night - all I can remember was that it was about fishermen and had a wonderful chorus.

It was called, The Last Fisherman. If you want the words and / or dots pm me for them. If you want it on a CD then you'll have to find someone with Not For Glory, our last CD (totally sold out) or we'll have to do a special pressing for you.
Cracking song isn't it? I know I'm biased but, hey, he's my other half so what the hell .....

I think I've managed to get some images to Jeff, but with our LAN/my puter playing up, so wait and see! Cats, Jon's rendition of The Last Fisherman was absoutly ****ing amazing, we must sort out a date to come down and do the photo thing. EPN, and MBS Lynne, working on your images tonight, I'll try to get them printed by the end of this week, if so they should be with you some time next week. Then a wedding the weekend after, and so to Murmansk........I think I need a break!

Wassail!! Chris

PS.....Now taking orders for T55's, Vodka, Beluga.........
