Don't forget to visit Beverley Market on the Saturday. Still a traditional market with lots of different foods and goods on sale. I reccomend East Riding Sausages and the pie stall! For those who are camping it's also the only source of fresh fruit and veg without using Marks or Tesco.

Enlightened self interest at play here as I also run the Fretwork/Toy stall (and I may even bring my Bandoneon along for a play)

All the best

Hey Oggie

That was sounding really good til you mentioned fresh fruit and veg!

The sausage and pie stall sounds like an excellent way to recover on Saturday morning. Nothing mops up the beer like a good meat pie.

And sausages on Sunday morning is just so ----- civilised. Specially when they're cooked, outside the tent, with eggs, kidneys, mushrooms, tomatoes, bacon, bread and butter and sweet tea.

What's the weather forecast for BFF then?

Aaaah. the Playhouse. I remember sitting on a bench outside the Playhouse one year, eating a kebab, trying to sober up enough to buy another drink.

I don't think that I got the kebab from the market, although it was a shop in the market place. So that nearly counts.

And the singing inside was fantastic. Rory Mccleod as I recall.

Hey cheer up!
Not having been to the Burnley festival I can't really comment on the comparison except to say that whatever the line-up , good or bad, the Fringe at Beverley is always fantastic.

In fact it is so good that a few years ago they didn't bother having a line-up at all, and the Fringe by itself was enough to keep the whole weekend going.

The town is great, the atmosphere is fantastic and the singing and playing in all of sessions is enthusiastic ...................... and frequently quite talented.

It's meeting old friends and having a good time that keeps us going back, not the line-up. O.k. having a cracking guest list mean sthat there's loads of choice as to who you have to miss in order to stay at the singaround for another few hours, but hey, what the hell?

Come on and enjoy yourself.

Whats happening at the Sun???
We had to pass through Beverley yesterday and noticed the Sun Inn open so we popped in for quick refreshment and a chat with landlord.
After a discussion with the said advertisement for a pin cushion I got the feeling that folkies are no longer welcome in the sun and are referred to as "Freakies". he mentioned everyone was welcome but was not happy about session music being played in the sun ?? Although the bar music was very heavy rock it did not fit in with the pub as we know it. We decided not to push our luck and continue with the conversation , have the locals got an alternative situ for us or did we misunderstand the mohican clad gent?

I have heard several negative reports about the sessions on fridays but cannot really comment further about those as it is some time since I was in there on a Friday.

I reckon the fringe has become the real festival in recent years. This is the third year in a row that I haven't bought a weekend ticket because most of the main acts should be at a rock or jazz festival.ps Stand back, Sophia is back from Uni and will be with us this year.

Fridays there have been some good sessions despite being shifted to the snug which is small. Last Friday counted 21 people some squeezed outside doorway. Session included traditional music, songs old and new, Stones and Beatles numbers and rock and roll sung in Russian by a chap from Ukraine. Great night.

But heavy metal still played at bar although only one customer was there for that.
Some regulars have been driven away.

If more come to the session we can put more pressure on re background music. Session on tomorrow anyway. We'll see what happens.

Good luck with Fridays - we all support you in your struggle. The pub needs live acoustic music to survive. Unfortunately my hearing problem means that any background noise makes it very difficult for me, which is why I haven't been along recently.

Called in "The Last Drop" in York today - a model of how the Sun should be. There are large signs in the window saying "No jukebox, No Pool,and inside there is only real ale on offer and there are advertisements for live music.

Lovely atmosphere with people of all ages drinking quietly and enjoying the good food on offer with their pints.

Yes Rog, I heard similar comments.

Kind of a contrast to the negative feedback that we have been getting about "The Sun" recently, doncha think?

As I have remarked before, me and the other members of "Punch The Horse" have enjoyed only good experiances and respect in the "Sun".

That is from both the "Sun" management and staff, the singers, musicians and regulars at the many differant gigs and sessions I have attended over the years.

Looking forward to spending a few hours in there at the Festival this weekend.

Just a bit of info in response to the many request for info on the singarounds in the "Monks Walk".

I am aiming for a 2.ooam start on both days and will run throughout the day.We have the use of the pub if to wet, but we have done a test run of the beer garden on Saturday night and it was a howling success, especially since Lorriane - the land person - has provide a open sided marquee for all us outdoor types to use.So looking forward to seeing and hearing you all at the festival.

Just a reminder - this session is run on an all comers welcome basis, so if you play, sing, squeeze, blow, pluck, strum, fiddle, do rigs and jeels, monologue, poet, chorus or just want to sit and listen you are all welcome.

I've not joined in on the thread for a while, however at last we have reached the time when all the host spaces on the fringe have responded and as two of the locals do not require camping there are two spaces going. I have not heard from murf?? . Pm me if you require one of the spaces. Cheers Oombanjo.
I have had a request from within the local musicians, and one of our local councillors, to test the water re a separate fringe weekend. If you want to respond to this, we will start a new thread after the festival, DON'T forget the Syntan wants to play a continuing part in the festival and could well be a good venue to bring your own wine and have a mudcat gathering. there are flyers around the pubs and site indicating places times of sessions HAVE A GOODUN.

We have heard that the Syntan is available and open to any music makers / singers /visitors that go along from 10am to midnight both Saturday and Sunday. They have mugs of tea, or bring your own booze -there is a supermarket just round the corner.

She has very good accoustics indeed and is an interesting place to perform.

Speaking as one of the "wingeing" ones and some one who is running sessions this weekend, I would like to point a couple of things out here "Tilly"

!. "After all the years Chris Wade and her crew have accommodated a bunch of winging musicians at the festival"

I take strong objection to be called a "wingeing" anything,I and the rest of the local musicians contribute to the Beverly and wider Folk scene all year round, not just Folk week So rather than your pal and her crew accomadating us, it would seem to me to be the other way round?

2. John (Ooombanjo) Quotes; "I have had a request from within the local musicians, and one of our local councillors, to test the water re a separate fringe weekend."

All I see here is John openly replying to a legitamate request - one I may say that will be whole heartadly supported by me - and actually doing things to keep music live.

Were is the "subterfuge" and "betrayal" there? Do not forget when the Beverley festival did not run the other year it was people like the "Wingers" and "betrayers" who filled the breach by running the very successfull "Peoples Voice festival".By your comments it would appear that Folk music in the Beverley area is the exclusive preserve of Chris Wade and her crew.

52 weeks of the year there are at least 4 sessions per week orginised by local musicians/singers in Beverley. These are very well attended. Nothing to 'wine' about there then.

I personally have never, never seen Chris Wade or any of her crew attend any of these sessions or get involved in what we do.
C'mon Tilly, smell the bacon!

I too would like an explanation of what you mean by 'subterfuge', Tilly.

I've been to the festival for years, too, as a paying punter, and as a festival worker. In recent years I've been more interested in singing and playing, so I've tended to stick to 'fringe' events, although I'll happily attend a concert or a workshop if there's someone I really want to see and hand my money over like a good 'un.

Most festivals organise singarounds and musicians sessions, and either pay for organisers or give them a free ticket. At Beverley we've had the perfectly amicable situation where the festival organisers can leave this sort of thing to people who play and sing in Beverley every week of the year.

This has the further advantage to the festival that it provides extra events throughout the day for season ticket holders to pop into, and attracts extra people to the festival. There's never been any 'subterfuge'.

If your comments were sparked by Oombanjo's posting about a separate fringe weekend, might I point out that separate in this connection means 'different from' or 'unconnected'. This will be discussed in a separate thread after the festival.

I would like to know who these 'wingeing musicians' (I presume you mean wingeing) are. I don't recognise them from the singers and players I meet every week in Beverley, who look forward to and support the Beverley Folk Festival every year.

Hey, I've just found out from Tilley that I'm a subversive. Wow!!!!

I just like singing and listening to singing, (and a bit of twiddly-diddly instrumental as well).

How does that make me a subversive?? I've been to many Beverleys (well in to double figures), and paid for lots of season tickets, some of which have never been used. All I've done is to go to fringe venues.

However, some people think that you shouldn't be able to camp without a season ticket, and if all you want to do is to go to fringe events then you're a parasite on the hard work of the Committee.

So maybe a separate fringe weekend is god way to keep everyone happy?

Or perhaps we could all co-exist peacefully on the basis that we all support each other; that 'folk' doesn't have to be political, and that we can all enjoy a great festival in our own way.

Or am I just the dumbest naif in the world?

Hey there Oombanjo,fear not! Of course we support the festival. The whole atmosphere of the festival and the fringe are bound up together and I think that the fringe benefits from the festival as a whole. (Even though I did really enjoy the Peoples Voice weekend).

It's juist that the festival has never really been comfortable with the fringe. Moving reluctantly from ignoring itin the early days to discouraging it, then grdging acceptance that it was here to stay.

I don't the fringe to be organised as part of the full blown festival but full co-operation would be good. Then we can all enjoy the weekend together.

Love and peace.

I think that the fringe has always worked well enough with the festival. In past years the festival provided people to run musicians sessions in the Tiger and singarounds in Nellies (later in the Sun) which were attended by a mixture of ticket holders and people who were just there for the fringe. Currently the organisers liase with the fringe people who provide these services.

I also think that the feelings that some people had that the festival never welcomed the fringe stemmed from the inability of the festival organisers to provide 'camping only' tickets. I don't remember this ever happening at Beverley, where camping space has become more limited each year as the Leisure Centre has grown. I don't think that many other festivals provide 'camping only' facilites either, so it's wrong to single out the Beverley Festival organisers for this. Lt's all look forward to another great Beverley and East Riding Folk Festival!

Sorry Les but some festivals privide camping, paid for of course and then separate event tickets, which to me as a non-concert goer is the fairest way. I'm quite happy to pay a reasonable price for camping but do not see why I should also have to pay for 'stars', dance bands etc. when I'm not interested in them. My husband usually comes with me as the driver and then we have to buy 2 season tickets so we can camp and I can get into the singarounds. B-- dear do then!! Bedworth is one like that you can't even get into the singarounds without a season ticket, never mind the camping,so we don't go any more.
Makes peoole like me organise weekends like Denaby weekend sing.

Finally I hope my singing adds to the festival atmosphere!!!!

just another two pen'orth, when the teams have been parading ,performing throughout the day and are unable to attend daytime organised sessions we are obliged to join in and enjoy the fringe because by the time we have cleaned off fed and arrived at the top line acts we have to wait until every paying customer has entered the venue, this p**sses some off as if it were not for the teams no daytime street entertainment would be available plus the partners half price ticket still has to wait so no seat saving there. so for me the fringe is wellworth supporting

When next year's is being planned, I know that nothing stays the same and that everything has to evolve, but please please please make sure that nothing is allowed to affect the essence of the Beverley experience.

Its a big festival that has all the friendliness and intimacy of a very small one.

That was a bit of clumsy way of saying it, but I'm sure that most people that were there will know what I mean.
