Subject: UK what's on websites
From: Mo the caller
Date: 23 Mar 08 - 04:02 AM

I am trying to make a website for myself and for the Black Cat barn dance and ceilidh band .
I want to put a links page on, and wondered what the best sites were to find Folk Events in the UK. I know about Folk Orbit which covers events from all over the place, but is Cheshire based so may well have more for our region than elsewhere.
Any other suggestions.
I also have fROOTS festival list
The ECeilidh list and Webfeet for those wanting to find a band or caller (in another part of the UK I hope).
And Set and Turn Single for finding a dance club (EFDSS type)

In the North-West of England:-

Bothy Folk Club    Scroll down for the Bothy's excellent Diary page which covers not only the Bothy's own activities (alternate guest/singaround nights with a strong bunch of resident singers, plus occasional ceilidhs) but also as much as they can dig up for about 30-40 miles around. Music links.

Virtual Lancaster - a general events diary for Lancaster city and surrounding area - manages to include most folk and trad session activities, also pub-folk bookings.

Fleetwood Folk Club   Weekly singaround session and occasional guests. Music links for some of the local resident singers.

I suppose the obvious one I shouldn't miss is EFDSS , though their What's On listing are very scrappy.

Hope it helps.

If you put links on the homepage it improves your search engine rating but bulks the page. If you have a subpage with links on it is almost as good, though the links need to be related in a textual way like Folk or dance. The search engine web bots are pretty clever but can only read words and links.

What about Folk North West? they have a website assuming they still publish.

Tell Shiela Mainwaring for Shreds and Patches (events and URL) though I doubt she will be webbed in the near future. Sabrinaflu might want to link to you as well as North Staffs - have a look at cresby.com for likely websites - but exchange links with them for best effect. So will, some won't.

cresby.com is very useful as it includes dance venues as well as song and tune outlets

Why thankyou Snuffy.
When people ask me "whats on?" I have to consult my own site. We will be at a lot of ceilidhs so I collect the info, but reserve the right to not fill my memory when I have several PC's to do the job for me.

Cheshire is a bit of a stretch for my remit. But I do link on a "others" page if it lists regular events.
