It was great seeing you, Chris - So glad you could make it! Your singing was in fine form, just as good as ever. I had a difficult trip back to the US - got caught in a huge snowstorm and had to sleep on a cold floor at Newark airport overnight. It was worth it, though. I really enjoyed Portaferry and will try and make it next year, too. Geoff and Mom send their regards.

A quick HI to those new friends I met at Portaferry, although I was only able to drop in for a few hours on Sunday. This has got to be the first time I have posted on Mudcat for a couple of years. Thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and sorry I couldn't stay longer. Now I'm back I'll keep in touch a wee bit more often.

I enjoyed singing/reciting THE ROARING BABY. First time I'd done it in quite a few months - it remains one of my fabourites and I'm glad it has raised a smile.

Thanks again for the craic.

Sorry Em, but the song challenge started before we left Portaferry.

(to tune of "Oh Dear what can the matter be")
Chorous
Oh dear what can the matter be
poor old Giok locked out of the B&B
slept in the car all thanks to Emma B
who didnt know he was there


the First NOT to come in was Giok McKenzie
Who found the door locked and went into a Frenzy
The car was a compact not a Mercedes Benzy
and nobody knew he was there

Giok stopped off at Devlins for a cuppa tea
and sat for a minute to look at the sea
the B&B door was shut tight as the road at Drumcree
and Nobody Knew he was there

Next day Giok was not very merry
overnight in the car in cold Portaferry
Not even a beer can to use as a jerry
and not very comfy at all

Currently (and I suspect for some time to come) there is also one very red-faced catter recently returned from Portaferry and, to avoid any more 'thread creep' of the 'hip-op' kind, I confess to accidentally locking Giok out of his B&B on Saturday night and apologize (once more) for forcing him to spend the night in his car.

We do have at least one black member in Azizi, we have an Australian Aboriginal member in Hilda Fish, so we're not totally monochrome.
I think the person to whom you refer who did the song/recitation was Chris from just north of Belfast, a fine singer. He is in one of my photo's on the report thread so you can confirm my guess or not.
Giok

Peter, speaking of bad English, shouldn't that read "while we English speakers make such a poor fist of our language"? ;-)

Sorry that you don't like the white color of my face - I won't change it for you ;-)

The song plus recitation guy was (iirc) Mudcat member 42 (don't remember real life name ...)

Leadfingers is quite right - Mudcat certainly draws the cultures together, and it's always noticeable how well others do with English, while we English speakers (on the whole) make such a poor fist of their languages....

In one respect, however, Mudcat is curiously one-dimensional - particularly for a forum conceived to propogate folk and blues:- as far as I have seen so far, in Europe and America, we've all got white faces.

As one of those who pefers tunes to songs, I have to admit the singing was pretty good, not least the woman from Newcastle (Co Down). Mooman pulled off the rare feat of accompanying a song to splendid effect with merely a bodhran - lending support to the few of us who claim that the bodhran is a musical instrument. And Liam was the living proof that a heavy night can make the voice grow stronger.

Who was the guy who did a song-cum-recitation in Fiddlers on Sunday afternoon?

Ok, here we go:

Thanks everyone for a lovely weekend!
Some people I want to say special thanks to:

- Kate for organizing the meeting
- Liz, Paul and Phoebe for their hospitality in London
- Khatt (spelling?) for organizing transport from London to Stansted and Belfast to Portaferry
- Gordon and Sheila for sharing the car with Khatt, Micca and me
- Sheila for driving us
- Kate and Gordon for letting us take part in their birthday party
- Khatt, Sheila, EmmaB, Sorcha, ... for preparing a lovely Sunday Dinch (*)
- the clean-up-after-the-dinch-team for guess what
- Micca for the black sheep - I will slaughter it tonight.
- all the musicians and singers for the songs and music
- the two ladies at Barholm for two great breakfasts
- the Portaferry Hotel receptionist for some feckin irish whiskey
- (might be continued when memory is fully restored)

--------------------------------------------------

Now, as requested, the words to the song I performed for Kate:

Sweet Kate who is Fibs

In Portaferry's fair city
where the girls are so pretty
I again set my eyes on sweet Kate who is fibs
As she plays on her fiddle
with a tune in the middle
Crying Guinness, more Guinness
For me, and right now!

More Guinness, more Guinness,
More Guinness, more Guinness,
Crying Guinness, more Guinness,
For me, and right now!

Now she is a nice person,
And sure it's no wonder
For so are her mother and father before
Both are here, with Kate in the middle,
who is holding her fiddle,
Crying Guinness, more Guinness
For me, and right now!

More Guinness, more Guinness,
More Guinness, more Guinness,
Crying Guinness, more Guinness,
For me, and right now!

Now she has a big party
For it's her thirtieth birthday
And Gordon has his fifty-eth as well.
So they both play on their fiddle
with a tune in the middle,
Crying Guinness, more Guinness
For us, and right now!

More Guinness, more Guinness,
More Guinness, more Guinness,
Crying Guinness, more Guinness,
For us, and right now!

-----------------------------------------

And now, as requested not to do ;-), a song especially for EmmaB (SCNR):

I've been a nice lady for many's the year
And I've spent all my time being lovely and dear,
But now I turn nasty, with malice in great store
And I never will play the nice lady no more.

And it's no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more,
Will I play the nice lady,
No never, no more.

I went down to a B&B house I used to frequent,
Where John McKenzie his night was to spend.
I locked the door, and I slid the bolt tight,
Making sure the poor man would not get inside.

And it's no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more,
Will I play the nice lady,
No never, no more.

I've got no bad conscience, and wouldn't know why,
As it was cold outside, so Giok wouldn't fry.
He slept in his car, much to his delight,
As he had a very comfortable night.

And it's no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more,
Will I play the nice lady,
No never, no more.

--------------------------------------------------


I'll start work on the photos later this afternoon ...

--------------------------------------------------

I really meant to make it this year, but with work, family visits etc. didn't get my donkey in gear in time. Just as well, in the event, because Bean Pluiméara has been coughing up the occasional lung for several weeks now and wouldn't have been up for it.

Maybe we'll make it next year, before Loughstock turns into the alternative Willie Week and starts collapsing under its own weight.

Gordon, Pal will be arriving at Aldergrove at 1pm Friday (via easyJet from Luton I should think). I've arranged to meet her there, but it might be handier if you could do the honours, if she's happy with that. Would you have room in the car or has Emma already booked the ride? (In case you'v forgotten, you met Pal at the Plaistow session with Kendall & Co a year or two ago.)
