Ross Campbell Fleetwood & Fishing: Songs of the Trawling Trade (82* d) RE: Fleetwood & Fishing: Songs of the Trawling Trade 15 Sep 17

As part of what used to be Fylde Folk Festival, we always used to put on events of a maritime interest in the Fleetwood Museum.
Dick Gillingham who was one of the original "Final Trawl" crew and is now one of the team of volunteers running the Museum continues the tradition by running themed events in the Museum on the weekend of the festival's successor, the Fleetwood Folk and Blues Festival.
This year we presented three events to mark the re-issue of the "Final Trawl" CDs. Dave Pearce and Dick Gillingham gave their "Fish'n'Ships" programme,an excellent selection of slides accompanied by an entertaining mix of narrative, songs and poems. Ron Baxter and Ross Campbell followed with songs and stories from the "Final Trawl" and beyond. Scolds Bridle (Sue Bousfield and Liz Moore) presented their show "We Are the Women Left on the Shore".
All three shows were rewarded by full rooms of enthusiastic audiences, and all the CD packs I had prepared disappeared, ensuring that I will be able to keep producing further batches!
