Well, I'll be there for one. And Sooz with Mr. Sooz. Gwed and Mr. Gwed, Georgiansilver, Villan, Hipflask Andy, GUEST JK, The Fence, 12-String Growler, Banjo-Flower and Tutti-Flutey (we hope!), and probably others. Why don't some of you come and meet (and hear some of) us?

Oh, and by the way, Julie Felix, Bob Fox, Clodstreet, Mark Newman, The Wilsons, His Worship and The Pig will all be there too.

Come and join us, come and join us..............This week, Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday.

Drove all the way home and got on with having flu, but glad I didn't miss that.

Hope you feel better today Al. Sorry you had to leave early - you missed some great music. Highlight for me was Cloudstreet but Bob Fox, Mark Newman, the Wilsons and Duncan McFarlane were great as well!Looking forward to another feast today.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to make today (Sunday).

However, I have to say what a lovely Friday and Saturday I had.

I am not going to single any one artist out as I think they all contributed to a smashing 2 days of folkmania. Its a team effort.

I would like to praise the committee of the Gainsborough Folk Festival for the unselfish hard work that they put in to make the two days that I saw work so very well. I was well impressed :-) It is so easy just to go to the festival and enjoy it, with very often little thought to the massive amount of hours put in unpaid to make it a success.

The real ale on the Friday evening must have been really good, becuase the buggers drank it dry before the evening had finished :-)

I agree about all the hard work that goes on by the stalwarts of the Gainsborough Folk Club - I think Friday night at the Old Hall went really well - nice to see so many in attendance swapping between listening to some class acts and dancing their little legs off. Called at EJB's Sat. that was ace - especially rousing was the Nelson's Blood song - really raised the roof. The White Hart was also visited and things were going along nicely. Particularly liked the funny poem about McDonald's - brilliant and the response to our request for the Elephant Man song. Concert was great Sat. night (some even managed to have forty winks whilst there)!

Haven't partaken of much more folk today, other than a quick half in EJB's at lunch time where there was a little gathering still going strong. Lovely fiddler, able to accompany any singer with ease - think they were from Sheffield way most of them. Thanks alot enjoyed that. I'm sure I won't be alone in saying that everything was much appreciated and all the hard work by the organisers certainly paid off. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.   You'll probably be still going strong trying to sort the stragglers out. Cheers.

Always a shame when something wonderful ends, but in this case isn't it an inspiration?! Right, off I go to do some serious practice in the hopes that by next year I may feel able to loose my concertina playing upon an unsuspecting world, and might even be able to sing and play at the same time......might even be the same song, you never know......Thanks to each and all for a wonderful experience.

Amazing weekend, thanks to all the organisers far too many to mention but they know who they are, also thanks to TA for making the weekend that little bit special, and to all the artists, enjoyed every one of them. The vocal workshop, the guitar workshop and the fantastically friendly atmosphere all went together to make a wonderfull weekend of entertainment. Many thanks to all involved. (SAVE ME A TICKET FOR NEXT YEAR SOOZ).

Another cracking festival Gromit - too many stars to mention them all but we had some major-league stuff going on there. All of the performers punched above their weight, some well above, and they're all stars as far as I'm concerned.

Also stars were the audiences, who sang loud and long in all the right places and made the hard work well worth-while. The buggers drank us out of beer, but our bank manager says we can forgive them for that! :-)

And, of course, all those concerned with climbing the mountain of organisation were superstars - thanks guys, you know who you are.

And so to next year.......................................!

Still recovering but must just post my brief but hearty endorsement to the above highly complimentary posts. Fantastic friendly atmosphere, some great singing, Duncan McF and Cloudstreet definitely big hits, and the Friday Folk Club event went specially well this year.... Very well done Sooz and Mike, and see you again soon.

Really enjoyed the Festival although my visit was slightly curtailed this year due the visit of 'our kid' from Edinburgh. However he really enjoyed it to. Best expeience for me was the Wilson's 'Wall of Sound' doing the harmonies when I was singing 'The Beaches of Saint Valery' it was mega double fantastic
