Subject: Bring Back Vin Garbutt (Please Help)
From: GUEST,Rob Henderson
Date: 09 Aug 06 - 09:16 AM

Ok so heres the story in short.....

.... I saw Vin Garbutt play a few weeks back and mentioned I was going to Cambridge Folk Festival. "Oh I haven't played there for ages" was his reply. So being very drunk I thought it would be funny to make a "Bring Back Vin Garbutt" flag for our camp flag pole.

The first nights rain brought down the flag :(

All it was good for now was a sun screen in the hot sunny days, until my mate dared me to get "WHERE'S VIN?" Henna Tatoo'd on my chest. Drunk as I was, I agreed.

Getting the tatoo was the start of a snowball effect. The conversation went...

ME: "how mush to get WHERSH VIN on me chesht?"
VENDOR: "about £10 mate"
ME: "mint"
VENDOR: "Why the hell do you want WHERES VIN on your chest?"
ME: *explained what I've just explained to you*
VENDOR: "EXCELLENT!!! Heres £5 back and can I sign the flag to start a petition to hand in to the festival orgaanisers?"
ME: "WAY HEY!! LETSH DO IT"

Waking up in the morning I found my self with ELIZA CARTHY's and the MAYOR OF LEWISHAMS signature on my flag along with a more of the last nights less than sobre folk.

So back home and thinking it was all becoming a distant memory, how wrong I was. My father got an email today from the MAYOR OF LEWISHAM, who has set up a website with me as campaign leader.

http://www.ksco.fsnet.co.uk/BringBackVin/index.htm

not only that but our local paper has got hold of the story and is putting the website into the paper.

So I'm holding my head up high and going through with what I started (as drunk as I was) I am also asking anyone who supports me in this to please click on the link on the site and tell Cambridge organisers that Vin should be on the bill for next year. :) My 2 year old son is starting to learn some words, as I sing it to him all the time, so I think it would make his next year special too at cambridge :)

You're all great people.
Incidentally when you next talk to Vin, ask him about the gig where they thought (presumably) a group was going to turn up - Vinegar Butt.
Honest it's true!!
As for Cambridge, poor souls on this thread, I suspect that you do not know the ridiculous politics which probably have kept one of the best loved performers, serious revivalist and uniquely funniest men in the English language, away from the biggest gathering of Folk in Britain.
To elucidate may get me into legal trouble so forgive me.
Closed and divided minds in the Cambridge set up , perhaps may not let you have your wish, but I wish you every success in your worthwhile endeavour and I shall go and sign your Clicky - thing.
Cheers,
Betsy

I admire Vin for not only his brilliant whistle playing, his belching is World class and his unique singing style but, ___


He says and sings what he FEELS, that should be what Folk singing is about, not necessarily what the establishment wants to hear

Get behind him for Cambridge but Vinn wont change his views,
Not everyone agrees with others views, but I will back to the hilt everyones right to say it even if I dont agree [of course there are legal exceptions] nuff sed!

Read carefully what Betsy sez coz he is Vin's long time folkie mate!!

Yes Trev I remember the Stork and Castle and Peter and Nigel(Bond).
I'm nursing a bad head from last nights finishing singaround at Saltburn Festival .Vin was on top form at the Festival as per usual.
Met Ossonflags and his missus Mary after more than 30 years and shared some wonderful memories of the Hull scen. Plenty of mudcatters at the Fest.including Nutty, and ,Rob Henderson who started this thread. The weather was shite - but the music and song was great , and i am still amazed how the Wilson Family keep up their phenominal workload .

Apparently from what I can gather, he is to political with his views on abortion, war and other political matters.
Since the original organiser died the council has taken over running the folk festival and its fallen victim to PC madness and not booked Vin to play since.

* I will make the flag twice as big next year if he's not on the bill Avro. Keep an eye out for it. :)

I went to Cambridge for the seventh year running. I was stood there, hardly able to move, with all this diddly-diddly music being played by a variety of unknown/reformed/reconstituted/regurgitated fiddle-based bands and it suddenly came to me: What on Earth am I doing here? Same old thing, year after year, no real representation of what's happening in the real world out on the club circuit (so no Vin, then).

I came home and had a great weekend playing some folk songs. Don't think I'll bother going back.

I sing one of your songs, learned from listening to Mr. Garbutt. They don't write them like that any more.

They don't either!

I'd love to see Vin back at Cambridge, but if they do away with the fiddles and the diddly diddly, I won't be back. There are many diffrent styles of folk music. I like Cambridge because they cater to many different tastes. You can please some of the people ...

Nice to hear from you Declan, Vin's Mam's maiden name is Tess
probably Teresa but in all these years I never heard her called anything else ) Kelly. Whether she came from exactly Mayo I can't remember. She is very infirm theses days I think getting on for 95 years.
She always used to buy the Universe, an Irish Catholic weekly paper.Apart from owt else, it contained the words of various Irish Songs, which was probably where Vins "folk" curiosity started. His Dad Alf, who has unfortunately passed away , was completely the opposite - English and non-catholic and undoubtedly where Vin gets his sense of humour. What a great couple, and obviously ( as I have seen the results , marvellous parents.
Rob Henderson wrote earlier "......his views on abortion, war and other political matters".
I support Rob from this angle .. I don't think Vin has rabid views , and I don't agree with some of them, but F*cking Hell !!! what is our folk music without this diversity ?
Any how, I don't remember Bob Dylan , Pete Seeger, Donovan, Eric Bogle etc etc. ( I tried to give a good cross section there ) singing and writing about war or political matters. Do You ? well.......perhaps a bit !!!!, hang on, quite a lot actually.
There were a lot of closed minds, both forcibly and acquiesced, in Germany in the 1930's, and more recently under Thatcher. Always remember your history, it's amazing how it somehow, returns to bite you on your arse ( English spelling ).
Lets forget the "Cambridge" part and call it the Clique Folk Festival.
If you think like them - You're IN ,if you don't, then F*ck off, you don't follow our narrow-minded profile of what a top performer constitutes .

Betsy

They do as a matter of fact. I have never bought one myself but my father has a cupboard with a few in including this years.

What I couldn't get my head around was the fact that 'Health & Safety' made the beer tent stop selling the plastic 4 pint milk jugs full of beer, Yet the council was still allowed to sell these glass tankards which meant people walking back with 4 glasses in there hands instead of a plastic bottle.

Safety?

Is Cambridge FF getting a reputatoin for being very political? I say this because I have heard a few discussions about the festival management and there less than "folky" views on running the festival. Although im not to sure of what happens behind the scene it sounds like censorship is playing a big part in it.
Can people not except other peoples point of views anymore? I don't understand why Vin Garbutt wouldn't be able to sing what he wanted to sing. If he was going to cause offense wouldn't people be campaigning to make sure he doesnt play at festivals?

Keep up the good work people, I'm glad the majority still have some sense.

Well, having Vin booked would be one good reason for giving Cambridge another go. A good reason for going anywhere for that matter.

Whether it'd be a good enough reason in the case of Cambridge I'm not too sure. All big concerts and no real fringe, not what I really look for in a festival.

Rob, I salute you. It's a noble campaign.

But really, given the apparent mindset at Cambridge FF, youve got to say: "Stuff 'em. It's their loss."


(Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't BBC Radio 2 involved with organising the festival now? And hasn't Vin been a regular at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, either as a nominee, winner, or guest? So how come ... Oh I give up. It's pointless trying to work out how these people think.)

I was at Vin's Concert in Perth Western Australia on Friday and brought up this subject after the show. He was really interested to hear that there was a thread about him on Mudcat, but said that (though he is very humbled by all the efforts made by the fans, he still doesn't think that there's much of a chance of being booked again at Cambridge.

To paraphrase his comment, " I really don't think that the people at Cambridge would have any idea who Vin Garbutt is anymore, or the kind of music I do.

CHeers

It was a fantastic show though and good to see that Vin is his old self again.

Bugsy,

Read the first post again, it's not really my campaign. People at Cambridge made me do this when I was drunk, lol.

You know the kid in the playground that gets pier pressured by all the other kids to do what they daren't do?

Bainbo,

Yes you are right, but to the best of my knowledge the council run the fetival since the previous owner died and the way they think is....

...Council must be Politically correct! ergo Council must not book Vin Garbutt.

Which is the kind of mindset that destroys the freedom of folk music to be honest.

Please feel free to go to the website on the top post and give a comment to CFF.

Rob, I realise that it isn't your campaign. I told Vin that there was a thread "about" the campaign on Mudcat, and I'm reporting back what he said.

For what it's worth, I think the CFF need a sharp kick in the arse.

What I said on 14 August, last year, again...

One of my most treasured memories of Vin was him being interviewed by Ray Fisher in the Whitby interviews.

Just a reminder about www.wotnovin.com for 2008, just getting a few more people to send a message in to CFF organisers in support of Vin Garbutt as they should hopefully still be booking bands for the festival at the moment.

Thanks all for you support.

You need to get the Grimsby Folk Club website updated Old Git. It shows Vin on in December (which I know he isn't). Looks like you have a nice group of artists appearing during the rest of the year.
Grimsby Folk Club

Faldingworth Live has Bill Whaley, Dave Fletcher and John Conolly on the night before, so two very good events on within 20 miles of each other.
