Cheers Ali. I'll send a reminder nearer the time - large may be ok - i'll have to cut down on the 'points' :-).

Oh and i have a slight criticism about the festival cd - you're not on it! Why it's an outrage!!

You're gonna have to put out a single for the 11th to make up for it. Maybe a live recording duet with Geoff with a backing chorus of the 'survivors night' crowd - now that would be something to 'roll home' to eh?

Thanks again folks - I've been in Wales for a cpuple of days with my grandchildren so I'm really chilled now! (I mean destressed of course - not cold!!)

We're not sure what went wrong with the concert on Saturday - I know Dave (the MC) was really trying to do a good job.

Anyway, it didn't seem to detract from everyone's enjoyment - a lot of people are saying that it's the best lineup they'd ever seen - not bad for a small-ish festival!! I was so emotional watching the artists and hearing the audience sing. Wonderful! As was the singing in the Survivors Session in Greenfield.

Thanks for the nice comments Ray! An enjoyable time was had, I suppose Lancashire have to win sometimes, at least we showed them how to be gentlemen in defeat. A very good contest, and an enjoyable festival. Thanks to Malcolm & Janet Hodgson for tea in their caravan! and thanks to the organisers for organising.
And Ray if you need another contestant for next year you know where I am!

My apologies Siobhan I wasn't blaming you (the Artists) it was just that Bill and Dave seemed to be the only ones cut short and they were brilliant. I thought the whole evening was great, with the possible exception of "im in the suit." I must add by the way, that the audience singing was aided greatly by me keeping my gob shut!

Hi

Great festival!!!

Just thought we'd better mention, in response to the previous posting, that the first few acts on Saturday night didn't overrun... what happened was that some acts later in the concert were cut short for some reason, even though everything had been running ahead of time (according to the artists' schedule, anyway) until then! We were the first act on, and the set we played was exactly the length it was supposed to be. We were amazed, and very disappointed, when Bill Whaley and and Dave Fletcher didn't get their allotted time... weren't they brilliant, though!

..and we agree, the audience were great!

Saddleworth Civic Hall Saturday night The real Stars, were the audience their singing was abso-bloody-lutely brilliant, spine tingling even. A couple of gripes The MC (who shall remain nameless) was pathetic he let the first two/three acts run over so we we ended up with just FOUR songs from Bill Whaley and and Dave Fletcher! Mind you they were four wonderful songs. He did however have the bottle to tell the Wilsons they were loosing a song! OK pathetic, but brave. These small niggles however never spoiled what is without doubt one of the friendliest Folk Festivals around. Well done Saddleworth AND we won the war of the roses.....Let my joy be unconfined

It was my first time camping at Saddleworth (I normaly come just for the day, but there were too many good acts on to miss any). The running track was a godsend but the least said about the toilets the better. Weather not withstanding we had a great time.
With such a great line up I rarely left the main concert hall, except to go to a couple of "meet the artist" & a couple of workshops. (My friends Chris & Siobhan Nelson doing "Appalation Clogging & "Home Recording" respectivly). Everybody on Sat was really good & it was terrific to see The New Scorpion Band on Sun. Unfortunately the program didn't allow me to get to see Hissyfit this year.
Looking forward to next year.
Cheers

Ditto also everything that's said above. The tenth (my ninth - so i can celebrate agin next year!) was really fab. Was a bit tentative this year as me mate Jim, who normally came along sadly died in an accident recently but the atmosphere and friendliness of the festival helped tremendously. Sat'day night in the Civic was amazing; after each guest spot you kinda thought, 'wow, follow that' but each act was truly brill climaxing with the fab Waterson / Carthy even without the great Norma (hope you're feeling lots better). The survivors night as Linda said, was tremendous; what an end standing up and joining hands 'as we went rolling home'.

I think the only criticism i heard was that the early acts on Sat eve didn't have long enough which to me shows the quality on show, such that people didn't want to let em go. Great tribute to the organisers!

Well done and thanks very much Ali for a smashing time (sure we'll see you around next year) and all the committee for the hard slog througout the year.

Saddleworth 2007 - fabulous music, fabulous people = fabulous festiva!!

After drying out on Friday, I had a great time! Saw what I wanted to, did a little bit of singing, worked a fair bit too!
Sunday was a nice enough day, however the rain waited until we were taking the marquee down to fall so we didn't have anything to hide under! Typical!

I'm surprised no one's mentioned anything about us running out of beer!

Safe home - thanks for the tow Geoff, and the offers from everyone who noticed my motorhome was stuck in the mud! Fortunately it didn't sink further as the weekend progressed. Linda was not so lucky.
The rain didn't dampen spirits - it just left a tide mark on everything! Wellies are wonderful... So are disposable gloves!
(They save ruining a good manicure when pulling up tent pegs)

What a wonderful weekend we had. Thanks Paddleworth! The lovely comments above are very kind. Linda and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We didn't win the war but we enjoyed the battle. Good to hear Bruce's clever monologues, I'll have to wait to hear him sing.
It was great to hear Dave F and Bill W at their 'extended' session in the Commercial on Sunday(!!) and the Wilsons were 'new' to me. Wow,how many different harmonies?
Thanks Ali, for asking us to sing and for guiding us to Greenfield last night. It was brill. I loved it when Pete (Shellback) sang his Pirate song and cried with laughter at his variation of Gaudete! Impeccable timing. I sang myself hoarse with all the choruses but that's not a complaint. It was an amazing night with a room full of happy voices. It was a great privilege to share a weekend that's so special.
I'm tired. I need to rest mind and voice. Great to put 'mudcat' names to faces and catch up with everyone again.

What can I say to everyone who came to Saddleworth? It was such an emotional weekend - I was in tears most of the time! I wanted it to be a huge singers festival, and it certainly was.

The Wilsons told me on Sunday morning that they've never known a concert as easy as the one in the Civic on Saturday night - they only had to sing a couple of words, and every time this wall of sound came back at them!

Ray - thank you so much for your lovely words to me at the Survivors Session. And what a wonderful session it was! It took nearly 3 1/2 hours to get through all the singers. The Greenfield locals couldn't believe it! Rolling Home was just amazing, wasn't it?

So thank you to you all - artists, stewards, friends, festival goers. You're all just wonderful! I know the festival will carry on from strength to strength with the people who come every year - many of this year's Saddleworth "virgins" have said that they're coming back again. (Yes, we still have them over here!!)

I jjust wish I'd seen Mr Happy and Linda (Hissyfit) get stuck in the mud - that would have just made my weekend perfect! Especially the thought of Colin K lifting Linda out!! Hazel - don't foget to send me the photo!

I'll see you all soon - maybe in Saltburn and definitely at Fylde. I'm featuring Scolds Bridle on Oldham Community Radio next Monday, and Hissyfit sometime in September, so tune in if you can! Then Linda, Hazel and Sue are coming back here, so please get over!

Just arrived home to find some of my pots and baskets wilting for lack of water - ironic in't it.

What a weekend................

Didn't think Saddleworth could get any better but the 10th certainly stood out as the best yet for me.

The Saturday concert in the Museum was superb except that the midges certainly had a good supper - many thanks to whomever invented anti-histamines.

bUT BACK TO THE HIGHLIGHTS

Hissyfit continue to delight with both material and harmonies (I'm so jealous girls)

Scold Bridle, Stanley Accrington, Muldoons Picnic, Jez Lowe, Bryony , Bill and Dave .... in fact everybody - I was not disappointed by one single performer I even heard good reports of the ones that I missed.

Thanks to all who came to the Internet Workshops - now they know more about Mudcat they may even log on and read this.

Thanks also to all the lovely people I meet at these weekend for providing such pleasure.

I'm feeling tired flat and emotional but would like to share this little rhyme with you

When my life is done and my spirit's at rest
And there's nothing on earth that can save me
Don't weep and don't mourn
Send me off with a song
And reflect on the pleasure that knowing you gave me.

Rather foggy over Saddleworth Moor

O Lancashire were awarded the War of The Roses, shield donated by Sid Calderbank I think, first time 2007

Some excellent singing from Scolds Bridle, Stan Accrington (a genius), that nice Dave Molloy and the incomprehensible Scowie and Sid who went on for ever!!

Hissyfit get better and better and need bookings, so too Bruce Michael Baillie.

Bruce is a talented singer and a funny man, little known outside of Cleckie (how many comedians do we have at the moment ~ not too many new ones)

Ali,

Ditto all thanks & praise for your dedication on our behalves for making it all such a fab experience.

Had inadvertant midnight roll in the en suite mudbath on Fri night, still digging congealed soil from me glasses frames - lucky 'twas dark or would've made a spectacle of meself!

Could'nt find me tent in the dark & only lights to be seen was the loo block - so ended up spending the night on the floor of mens chaning room - hard - but nice & wqarm & DRY! LUXURY!!

Rest've weakend sessions in the pubs great - met lots 'catters- talented lot aren't we!

Ray Padgett, Muppet & many others had us all in stitches with their most entertaining renditions, & very memorably Sooz's contributions in Con Club last night.

Good place that - big enough for both the massed folkers [did I spell that right?] & also the small but intimate sinaround in the little members bar [no I'd not been peeking!]


Even heard the most fascinating version of 'Danny Boy' from one've the locals with the words & tune of 'Old King Cole' [naughty Boys Brigade version]!!

Can't weight for next time!!

I can't imagine half of the effort and work you must have undertaken to make the event such a success - Many thanks indeed.

I agree the move to the Greenfield Conservative Club provided much more room to squeeze all those singers into.

This was my personal highlight of the festival.

Hope the ducklings continue to enjoy ocarina at breakfast for a good few weeks to come - there is a second book Jayne, and a six holed ocarina + plenty of online music so there is a lot more scope for them to drive you mad over the summer!
