Subject: Warwick Folk Festival 21st-23rd July 06
From: GUEST,Mikk
Date: 13 Jul 06 - 09:32 AM

Well it's only a week to go before this years Warwick FF. I am really looking forward to it. I was unable to attend last year as I was in Ireland. I went for the first time in 2004 and thought it was wonderful. The camping facilities are excellent, sessions and concerts on the site plus sessions and so much more going on in the town as well. I seem to remember spending quite a bit of time in The Zetland Arms last time.
This year I am really looking forward to seeing the Battlefield Band on Friday & my long time favourite Dougie MaClean on Sunday. In-between I will be propping up Granny West's wine stall & attending as many sessions as I can get to.

I know there was a thread about Concertina's at Warwick a while ago but thought I'd open it up a little.

Anyone else going?

I have 3 spots, one of which is a "Meet the Artist" session at 11am in the Arts Centre if anyone fancies hauling themselves out of bed to give some moral support! (11am, it obscene if you ask me!!!)

We are the official providers of Mudcat name badges. They cost 50p and Mudcat gets a cut from them.

The easiest way to get them is to send 50p (per badge!), your Mudcat name AS IT IS WRITTEN and a SAE to
The Badger
7 Quarry Road
Norton
Doncaster
DN6 9HS

Then you wait until I can get him motivated to make them!

We will be at Whitby all week so could bring pre-ordered ones to there - PM me about it.

Unfortunately absence of badge stall is because festval organisers (in general - not just having a dig at this festival) are charging more to rent a stall than the income to be made from badges.

Linda Kelly and I will be there for all the fringe and Dougie Maclean . Linda is soooooooo excited. I'm praying the van has a happy journey. I'll have Les, Maggie and Fiona on board to give me a push if I need one again.....(memories of a long hot day on the road South!)
Really looking forward to my 4th or 5th Warwick.(wonder why I can't be sure) It's only hours away - it's almost Wedneday I'll dig out my badge and hope to see you / hear you / meet you all.

Mr Happy - I find, and hide every £2 coin I can, from August through to ticket buying time. The anticipation of Warwick FF is such that I work harder at saving for it than for anything else. Don't ask me why - Wow, it's too good for words.

Hey Jim, missed you at Beverley - only 48 hours and it'll be Friday.
See you all soon.

Sorry Ray for the delay in replying to your quiry re the session.
Normal sessions are in G and D and I know Jody Kruskal is taking his GD, but there will be no rules as such if you have a CG Anglo and you want to play something for the session in C nobody will mind.I will have my two anglos with me CD and GD so providing nobody turns up with a BpF I should be prepared.Everybody who wants to lead the session will get a chance it will not be restricted to a chosen few.
Although it is called the Big Squeeze it will be open to other instruments.It will be just one big session,with some top players turning up during the afternoon.
For the beginners workshop in the morning I will be taking two spare CG Anglos and everybody who attends will receive a free CD Tutor which covers all that I will be teaching.
Hope to see you at one of these events.

Last year the Zetland had a massive gazebo/marquee covering the garden at the back which quite spoilt the garden atmosphere. Session inside tended to be Irish as I recall. You might find or start something in the Bowling Green. Again there was a marquee in the garden last year but as the garden is huge it didn't have such a negative impact as the one at the Zetland.

Left at 6am this morning to get to job interview but still didn't get the job. Brilliant weekend despite the son et lumiere show on Saturday (btw anyone know how bloke who got hit is doing?). I knew I'd done the right thing not leaving Sunday when I went to the final concert. Dougie Maclean was amazing and then the Paperboys were a wonderful finisher. Thank you to Jan and the Panic circus who looked after our children especially when the storm hit and we couldn't get to them. Definitely one of my favourite festivals (along with Miskin of course Andy) - roll on next year.

Another excellent festival - can't blame WFF for the weather! Particular thanks from Maggie and me to all involved in organising this great festival. The organisation really is a model for anyone wanting to know how to run a folk festival.

Jane, the people struck by lightning were our neighbours on the campsite and I understand three went to hospital, two were released and one chap was kept in for observation.

It should also be mentioned that the lighting rig was virtually glowing at one point in the main tent on Saturday afternoon.

Seemed vey well organised. The bookstall was tucked in a hidden area so thanks to all who came and found it. (Even bigger thanks to those who purchased books or vinyl).

I thought "Freshlyground" were great and nothing like my kind of music at all. And yet they were a great hit. Delighted to have had chance to see them. Brave decision of the Festival to put them on and it paid off (IMHO).

Great to see some old friends and made a few new ones just what festivals are for.

Highlights for me were Last Night's Fun (do not believe any rumours) and John Kirkpatrick playing Johann Matheson's "Gigue" which is just the most amazing piece of Anglo-Concertina virtuosity I have ever heard. I thought James Raynard was great too.

My wife's highlight (she is over 45, smallish and size 10) was being invited to join Pecsaetan Morris (tallish generally speaking, mostly well under 30 thirty and tiny bottoms). Mind it was in the swimming pool. She now describes herself as an honorary member of Pecsaetan's Aquarobics Team.

Great festival - loved every minute - even Jim McDonald's shirts!!

Well, what can I say?
The Van performed brilliantly and arrive complete with Beverley and Hull contingent at noon Friday. No need for the RAC.
We (Linda Kelly and I) had a fantastic time.
The Arts centre still is my (our) favourite space to sing and the 'unrehearsed choir' did a fantastic job harmonising at every opportunity.
I've got some £2 coins stored away already - and an extra week to save up as next years dates are for the 4th weekend in July!
Dougie was simply superb. I couldn't believe how many people said they'd NEVER heard him before(!) and that they'd like to hear more. What a treat to have him smile at the audience participation (!) or hasn't anyone else noticed that it seems to be the norm to portray how sullen one can look in 'life' these days?
He appeared amazed that so many of 'the English' knew his songs.
I thought his performance was outstanding - (I would!)

Jim McD - I think you were avoiding me!!!!
Sorry you didn't get your job Jane.

We departed at 10 to midnight and just missed a royal appointment at the motorway services around 1 am.(at Tibshelf North).
The van behaved perfectly until 'ull when it set off two car alarms as we passed at 0420..... (sorry!) and now it's all dried out and washed up ready for Saddleworth.
Roll on Thursday. Hope to catch up with more 'catters' there.
Luv.
H.

First Warwick for Bill W and me and had a great time - didn't see much on the main stage as we were kept busy in the Living Tradition Centre. Good that festivals can present both the big venues and the smaller intimate acoustic shows. Audiences were terrific and we had
a wonderful time with John Conolly at the "Lincolnshire Lads" session - looking forward to teaming up again at Faldingworth in Sept!

The main marque was hit by the lightning, as was the crane.

Last I heard, the man who was hit, had a swelling on the brain and had been induced into a coma. He was moved to the high dependency ward, and they where intending to bring him out of the coma yesterday (Monday).

Sad to hear that the poor chap suffered at the hands of mother nature, I really enjoy watching storms but it was a rather violent one, I had just come out of Damien O' Kane & Shona Kipling's set at the Theatre, we all blamed Damien for picking up his Banjo.
Sunday night was the first time I'd ever seen Dougie McLean and I can't believe that it's taken me so long, he was fantastic.
The Sunday night concert was the highlight for me the Paperboys had me dancing like a loon for their whole set.

Jim, I'm really sorry if I spoilt the rest of your night, it was an unfortunate ending to an otherwise fantastic festival!

Yea we heard he was knocked unconscious but the ambulance was on it's was as my informant was calling. Roumour mill had all ages and sexes as the man in intensive care within the hour.
The steward on the road entrance was ready to run - he said the flash and the bang were at the same time - 300 yards or not he was scared.
Everyone though they would be safe with a 100 foot crane nearby - I think they now believe me after I said "Don't bank on it".

JK - being a notso minor deity was superb in the ceilidh - totally E-ceilidh - calling and playing at the same time. All his sons were there, two dancing and Benji doing a grand job.

All in all a fantastic weekend of dance with Bedlam on the sweltering Fri. I think I got through 5 T-shirst that night.

Nice to see you at Warwick Folkie Dave
I agree with you on J.Ks performance absolutely stunning.
A star is born as well with Sally his wife doing a wonderful job in duet with John on base Anglo Concertina.Second time in public the first being the Big Squeeze in the afternoon.A really enjoyable evening with the dream team of Brian Peters (Who needs a medal for his performance in the main marquee during the storm)Jody Kruskal,
John and Sally and of course Chris Sherburn with Last Nights Fun.
I found it difficult to understand the anount of people leaving and rejoining the evening during the performances,but later realised it was the beer that could not be taken into the theatre and being so hot it was the beer tent that was the other attraction.

There but for the grace of God go hundreds of us who were there, and probably enjoying a singaround under shelter at the time. The Survivor Syndrome effects are strong, even when you are fully aware of it, so I cannot help feeling somehow illogically guilty and wanting to do something for the person's family. Do we know if he/she left any children behind?

I keep thinking back to standing in the Marquee and looking out to the pooring rain.With the day being so hot and air less chidren were running about in the rain playing.I walked past a woman walking her baby in a pram.Many including me walked past the crane that was five foot from the path and subsequently the crane was hit by lightening.
I join you all with thoughts for John's family.

This is the facts about the incident from one of the directors, who is a personal friend of mine and was OK about me quoting the info below..

The people were on the bridge either going away or coming in when they were struck.

The Crane had nothing to do with the festival, it was to do with the a new building for the school close by.

The festival wasn't stopped becuase of the people that were hit. In actual fact, the wiring at the marquee was under water and posed a dangerous situation, so it was stopped for that reason.

John Cross was not a steward to my friends knwoledge.

This is not meant to cause controvesy, but merely aimed at getting the facts as correct as possible.

At the end of the day, it is still very sad and does put a downer on the event.

All I can add is that the young lad was camped next to my van with one female and one male friend.
The mother of the uninjured male and the father of the girl were camped elsewhere on the FF site and came to pack up the tent and their belongings and mentioned that the youngsters had some family link. It seems the young woman was thrown against the bridge as the bolt struck her companion.

How sad.

The young man who died was at his first folk festival as far as I know.He died on friday eveningafter being kept in a coma for a few days after the event. When he came/was brought round he was found to have very severe brain damage and he passed away peacefully.
My thoughts go to his family and friends that such a tragedy should happen.
To the young man who gave mouth to mouth at the time and thought the worst on Saturday afternoon, sorry that your efforts ultimately proved to be in vain.You did your best but sadly eventually nature took its course.
The funeral has yet to be arranged.






He was not a steward at the festival nor was he a former dancer with Grimsby Morris.
The other 2 people who were injured are both at home with only superficial injuries.
Note only 3 people in total were hurt not 4 as has been mentioned.

I am sorry that certain facts I posted may be incorrect they were given in good faith.
I understood that the Paramedicts treated four people on the bridge and of the four three were taken to hospital,hence the reason why I mentioned four people.
The reference to the crane which was about two hundred foot was mentioned as part of my point regarding that many people take risks in these freak storms,myself included.These cranes are usually earthed as a safety precaution.The crane was part of building work going on adjacent to the Festival site.
Absolutely no blame can be levelled at the Festival organisation in the way they handled the whole situation.In fact as already been said the total organisation of the Festival was second to none and that every precaution was taken for the safety of those present.
