It also was the home of that opera-singer lady from Donny, whose name I can't remember.

Now I'm confused. I found this website
http://yorkshire-folk-arts.com/directory/clubs_south.html
that says Ep'th Folk is in South Yorkshire and meets on Tuesdays (fortnightly) with singers & occasional guests. Are there two Epworth's, one in each county, one on each night.

Or has it just changed nights.

Thanks for clarification.

Totally boring and internal discossion, if this is the way that folk music in England hopes to ressurect itself then I am sorry for you.

P.S. Sorry fot the spelling, I know how much this counts for on this forum, I was in the 60's a member of Ewan McColl's singers club in London, those days are gone.

Harsh 'Guest Jane!!'...Epworth is off the M180 about half way between Doncaster/Scunthorpe...Folk music very much alive in area generally; no resurections necessary!! We would welcome your contributions...see 'Folktalk' on web for all other thriving clubs in the region.

Guest Jane...I have also been around the Folk scene since the 60's and am seeing plenty of good clubs and music available but not so much in the "General Public" eye. Perhaps you can think of some method by which we can get Folkies back on TV more regularly or at least to get them to project themselves more into the 'limelight'.
Best wishes, Mike.
P.S If you don't like boring and internal discussions you could always avoid them rather than join.
Again Best wishes, Mike.

Leslie Garret still has a second home in Epworth

school.

Ep'Eric's the name. Founder and organizer of Ep'th Folk 18 years   
ago on hallowe'en. Thanks for the name Jane.
There is only one Epworth and we are it. We changed to Tuesday
about 4 years ago, but it was disastrous so we changed back to
Monday which it had always been. We are North Lincs. with a
Doncaster post code.

Excellent broadcast Jane. Congrats. on a job well done.

There is always the risk of confusion when a place is in one county and the post town in another. I administer the Yorkshire Folk Arts website mentioned above (it includes Northern Lincolnshire) but I have to rely on what people tell me; I am not psychic. The Epworth entry was provided by a researcher 3 years ago; she presumably assumed that venues with Doncaster post codes were best listed together. A mistake, but easily made. Now that I know the club has moved back to Mondays, I will amend the entry, and move it to the Lincolnshire section.

If people were to tell me when they change their arrangements, I would be able to provide more accurate listings. Regrettably, the organisation does not at present have the money to employ a researcher. Though I do try to be pro-active, there are only so many hours in the day; and sleep is occasionally necessary.

A bit too far to come from the other side of Sheffield on a work night by public transport. I'ld have to see if I can persuade anyone that they really want to drive me over and experience the club. Will make it over sometime.

I agree it can't possibly be 27 years . There again I can't possibly have a 20 year old daughter either.

( would be a trifle pedantic of me to say it would have been more likely to be 5p as I'm not that old and if I ever knew the words to a pub with no beer they have been scoured from my soul by being in many pubs were that was not the case)

I guess one god thing about strict timekeeping;ie...8-11pm means that even artists travelling are assured 4+ songs; and then I guess on the measure of that, Eric could choose to spotlight an artist for more time at a future date??!...I have to agree with one of the 'regulars' comments...along the lines of 'fair play should be given to all who attend, and not the more 'rare' artists turning up'...I really think the answer lies in getting there on time; if there has to be a break..then a very short one, and then keep the music going....there is nothing worse than tardy starts and even longer chatty breaks...having said all of that, it's nice to socialise..speaking for my 'audience only' hubby, he doesn't like protracted starts and breaks!!!

Agreed completely if Epworth is a singers club, which it is then everyone should have the same number of chances to perform - most people travel some distance to it anyhow. i was getting a bit annoyed hearing about people wanting to book 20 min spots, if anyone should get them it should be the regulars who support the club every other week not the 'rare' performers.

I also think if peole don't turn up until late in the evening they shouldn't be 'given' the same number of songs as someone who has been there all evening, although in a singaround venue this shouldn't happen anyway.

Epworth, Gainsborough and Market Rasen are three clubs in the region really trying to support each other...Epworth and Gainsb. offering the singaround format, with additional/or concert nights periodically and then Market Rasen where Les' policy on 25 minute assigned floor spots before the guest artist is the norm...I guess we're pretty lucky in that we are catered for all round really..(many thanks to those club organisers for all they do!! ie/...Gainsborough Festival was brilliant recently!)

Encouraging people to come to a club is a good thing, and if they travel some distance to do it like say WLDrummer then maybe they cannot do that journey too often, to appreciate their making the effort to support a club a considerable distance away a 20 min spot seems a good idea to me. After all a club can hear it's own members every other week and the songs can become stale. But thats just my opinion.

Distance is relative, where do you draw the line as to how far people travel??
I don't know but there's probably only Eric lives in Epworth that goes to the club, so perhaps everyone should have a 20 min spot, it would be a long night!!

The regulars at Epworth are always singing new songs, so it shouldn't become stale - I think numbers is the problem so perhaps the other week's meeing did some good.

Couldn't agree more, JK, Fence and Carol!
Good timekeeping is essential, and if organised properly there's still time for some chat. And good timekeeping helps those who travel a distance. Those clubs that habitually start late and unpredictably and/or have protracted breaks have lost my support over time, although I always give a club several chances first!!

I'd love to come over to Epworth tomorrow, but..
(a) there's fierce competition from Mike Nicholson at Barnsley,
and (b) the weather forecast is dreadful (which makes a difference to a long drive).

But just for future reference, how does one find the Old School Inn? Which street is it on?

To Find Ep'th folk.


Get to the traffic lights in Epworth. I don't know where you are coming from so that's the best starting point I can give you.
Head off away from town, down Station Road with the WHITE BEAR pub
car park on your Right. Proceed for a few hundred yards down this
road and you'll find BATTLE GREEN, which is a fork to the left.
Go down there and you'll see the OLD SCHOOL on your right.

Incidentally Kathryn Tikels father was headmaster here when it was a school. She lived and spent her childhood years here.

Yes Carol, I live in Epworth along with 2 or 3 other hardy frequenters of Ep'th folk. A few come from nearby villages and the
rest have to travel from Doncaster, Scunthorpe and Gainsbro. etc.
A fact that I don't overlook and appreciate. But more of that later.

Yes you've got the right one, we've acquired am automatic car - it automatically takes me out at night!! Plus I've had my knee 'done' and graduallly seems to be improving so I'm hoping to get over to Epworth regularly now.

At the last meeting I'd arranged to meet up with some friends from Newcastle for the evening for a sing!

Yes the weather forcast is bad but I'm setting off at 7 and will come back 'early' if necessary.

Ep'th Folk was again beset by misfortune on Monday when 8 of it's loyal supporters rang in to say they could'nt be
there for very good reasons.A phone call is always very helpful and appreciated.

Despite this about 20 got the meeting off to a great start with a number of notable local singers amongst the gathering crowd. The charge
of £1.00 on the door was quickly forgotten when the crowd found who
was taking it from them. Who else but your lovely Jane or JK to mudcatters.The sing around format seemed to prove popular and we
made 3 circuits of the room by the end of the night.

The standard of singing and playing was very high and
the music offered varied from traditional songs up to the swinging
60s. With a good crowd, chorus songs were sung lustily as in the
early days of Ep'th folk .

Song of the evening for me was the version of Archie Fishers
song Jock of Hazeldine sung by Dave, lead singer of Tin Bath
accompanied so effortlessly, or so it seemed by Christina on fiddle.

Next meeting is on Monday 21st. November at 8pm.
                               The Old School Inn.
                               Battle Green
                               Epworth

EE - this thread's going to get enormous. Might be a good idea to start an Ep'th Folk Club Permathread, which you can then edit and clear out stuff every now and then to prevent it growing like Topsy? I'm sure someone in Mudcatland can tell you how it's done, and what the rules are about Permathreads?

JK & EE - A Permathread is one that is controlled by an individual, and can be edited (e.g. all the old crap cleared out to keep it a sensible length). When it starts to get a bit OTT, you can remove the old stuff and revive the reduced or empty thread so you only carry current stuff in there (also if some prat puts abusive or other improper posts on it, you can get rid of them).

Take a look at the Gainsborough FC Permathread which Sooz moderates - it's a good example.

I believe you need to talk to Joe Offer to get one set up.
