Well solder boy, i was another 'silly buggers camping in a tent' from Friday eve to Monday but dispite the rain and spungy field (& no food tent this year), the 12th Saddleworth (my 11th) was once again a really enjoyable afair.

Yes guest Tim, the Young'Uns were 'unbelievable'. Once again younger talent shines through at Saddleworth. Were there really only 3 of em, sounded like an acapello quoir at times; great humour, clever original arrangements of soem great songs and brill instrument playing too especially on the 'ice cream vam'.

Great to see Linda and the full Hissyfit back again; the lovely voice of Jan Shevlin of Better Late; the hilarious New Ropes; always fab Box Fox and a great set and sad farewell to Eric Bogle & John Munroe as they retire from touring; + many more. Sorry i'm waffling on.....so many thanks Ali and all the committee.

Roll on the 13th !
