Anyone got any idea who's on at the Swinton Folk Festival this year? There seems to be nothing on their website!

It is indeed that weekend. Sorry but I know little more than anyone else but I believe Friday is a concert with Jon Brindley and maybe a singaround downstairs. Saturday has a concert with Stanley Accrington and Martin Hall's new band who's name escapes me. Usual all day drinksingaround Saturday and recovery workshop Sunday lunchtime. Dunno if anything else is on Saturday afternoon but there is usualy a club style concert as well as the main pub 'do'. Phil Atkinson will be playing the club Monday evening but I don't know if that will be a continuation of Saturdays megasing or if he will need to go home in between;-)

Cheers

Dave

Only 2 weeks to go now - Still seem no advertising! Ah well. What do I know. I used to organise it but I have emigrated to Newcastle through the working week! I would never complain about a fellow organiser though and not advertising is at least agood way of making sure that not too many people are there to spoil our fun;-)

Swinton insurance opened their first branch in Salford in the 1950s- but are now own by a French insurance company.

Happy memories of good do's at the White Lion, with and without Navy Cut.

Have fun folks!

I have good memories of singing in Swinton in the mid 60's.
No folk club then, just a quaint little pub that was knocked down to build the shopping centre.

That shopping centre is a pretty damned awful example of what has now become known as 'Brutalism' by the architechtural press. The building at the front, the now closed and waiting for someone to take pity on it, The Lancastrian Hall, was shortlisted as the countries ugliest building:-(

I don't remember the pub, I'm afraid, nutty. There was a Conservative club and a Labour club but my 'Pubs of Swinton and Pedlebury' book (Would anyone guess I just may have one of those;-) ) has no details of a pub there. Can you remember the name? It could be that it is either the Weavers or the Football that both avoided demolition by the width of a road! Pop along and see if we can rekindle some more of those good memories:-)

Cheers

Dave

You got me thinking Dave - so I looked at the area on Google maps.

Wonderful satellite images and now think that it might have been The Football. I,d have to go in to be sure. Bit the pub I'm thinking about had a small room on the right as you walked through the door.

I used to be in the company of Clive Bolton, Stuart McDougal and Thomas Alan Gee. Do you hear anything of any of them now??

The Football did indeed have a few small rooms, including one on the right as you went in. For a while the back room, just after that one, was home for Swinton Folk Club - Be around 1980 I would guess. Trouble is the Weavers next door had a few small rooms as well! What a choice of rooms we had until the breweries decided one big room was best! At least we still have the Folk Club Room and the upstairs function room at the Lion:-)

The names you mention don't ring any bells but I have only been into folk since the late 70's so could be before my time. I'll ask around though.

Cheers

Dave

I'm not going to make it this year but if anyone goes and bumps into Pete Ryder would they pass on my thanks to him for the CD I got from him last year - Nat Shapiro's Time is now regularly played this side of the Pennines.

Form a string quartet

In case you was wondering, my eldest two lads did the Chicken Song at one of the early festivals. And it is more interesting than just 'refresh':-)

Will do Nick. Guess 'this side of the Pennines' is Yorkshire to you?

It's starts tonight!

No, that's a different Nick.

I came last year on the Saturday for the singaround in the bar and came to Swinton folk club a couple of years ago the monday just after the folk festival. Pete came in lateish on and played Nat Shapiro and I thought it was a great song. So I sat down and worked out how to play it a few months ago and it goes down remarkably well. I sang it in Thirsk some while back and a lad there has since learnt it and I sing it regularly in Flaxton and places dotted round Yorkshire.

I'm on here playing bass but it's not folk music! Raggytash has a rather large walrus like moustache.

Thanks to Ged and crew at Swinton for a great day out yesterday. Didn't get there until late afternoon but still enjoyed a bit of a singaround with plenty of variety.

Thoroughly enjoyed the concert, Staff Folk, Oddfellows and the unbeatable Stanley Accrington. Trouble is after an hour immersed in the world of Stanley Accrington you can't recall anything that happened before.

The highlight for me was the great songwriter Ted Edwards singing his own composition Albert and the Coal in the singaround.
