Doncaster Folk Festival is being revived after a few years "rest". It takes place over the weekend 9 - 11 February.
Artists appearing include Tom Napper, Tom Bliss, Grace Notes and John Conolly but there are also continuos singarounds and workshops for people who don't like concerts. Ticket price is ridiculously low thanks to a grant from Awards For All.
See you there?

A few years? The last one I remember was in 1970.

It's advertised on the Web Site as a singaround and musicians session, starting at 2.30 on the Saturday for the rest of the day and then on Sunday, but only a Concert on the Friday eveving.

Carol is mostly correct.
Friday is a concert only.
Saturday, as I understand it (and I'm happy to be corrected if the organisers are looking in!), in the afternoon the Ukrainian Club will house, as well as a concert, two separate sessions (one a singaround in the smoke-free upstairs room from 1430 and the other a musicians' session in the bar area).
Sunday, the format would appear more informal, with a session of some kind (probably mixed) from around lunchtime, again I believe using the upstairs room.

Only another week to go. Learned last night that there is a secure site for motorhomes to spend the weekend.

Sounds good but you need to book a campervan place in advance. Cos if you turn up on pec. all the places could be taken.

I was told the space was large, but that they would like advance bookings so they could tell the security gusrd you reg number to let you in.

Since no session was planned for the Friday night (9th) as part of the festival I've just been informed that one has been organised at the Cheshire Cheese, Wheatley Hall Road. This is in walking distance of the Ukranian Club on the main road.

It is due to start at about 8pm.

1970 the last Festival in Doncaster ? I moved over from Mexborough in 1989 and along with Bernard Warner and Mick Bamford arranged at least four based at The Three Horseshoes and another one at the Leopard it limped along for a couple of years after that.

I think it "limped" along very nicely as I recall. with things happening in The Leopard, The Horse and Jockey and The corner Pin. I think also there was a musicians session in the Three Horseshoes and The crown

I saw Bernard Wrigley, Janet Russell, Johnny Collins, Arthur Johnstone, The Wilsons, Janet Wood, Loctup Together
Liza Carthy, Saul Rose and several others whilst it was limping along.

I remember having the pleasure of an intimate session with John Booker, Ray padgett and Johnny Collins (and some other lowly people like myself)in a sort of singaround and what a session! I heard some good singing and some wonderful songs.

I wish the revived festival very best wishes and hope it gets the support it deserves.

Right...having spent the last couple of days staggering between recordings and gigs, I've finally got a minute! - Will see you all in the session this afternoon. (Assuming I don't die of exhaustion)

Cheers,

Sad not to make Fri due to the Pennine snow, but had a great time on Sat.
Thanks and congrats to John, Derek and all at Donny, for the cordial welcome, excellent venue and friendly (and smokefree) atmosphere, and already looking forward to next year.

There were great sessions Friday and Saturday in the Cheshire Cheese. Everything from tunes and songs to poetry and story - oh, and the odd dance :-)

Everyone, including some of the locals who didn't think they were 'into that sort of music' had a brilliant time.
