GUEST,Surreysinger National Folk Festival 2005 (Eng) (41) RE: National Folk Festival 2005 (Eng) 16 Apr 05

My favourite bits of the weekend were Friday night with the Carthy/Waterson/Killen/Fisher combination; an informal singaround until the wee small hours in the corridor outside the ladies loo (the acoustics were fantastic); another singaround in the Octagon Room on Saturday night, and the last session in the Committee Room - George, his twinkle in the eye, and the way he absolutely slayed the room with his MBE song (would that I could be that good at 81 - or even now!). Shouldn't forget John Cocking's superb delivery of monologues either - the whole session was a joy - a mixture of crying with laughter and luxuriating in good music. After 15 years' attendance, IMHO this year's National was one of the best in quite a few years that I can recall.
