Saro - That's good news about Jimmy; I do hope he continues to make good progress.

Many thanks to Sidmouth Steppers for organising that procession which of course did not take place on Sunday morning. Amazingly the rain stopped in good time for it not to happen. And it was a lovely balmy evening for the torchlight procession on Friday.

Bubblyrat - I'm not familiar with the couple you mention (Swiss lady and banjo-playing husband). Think they might be from 'or somewhere', since it's about 100 miles from Penzance to Bideford. They would be very welcome here though.

Sue

It was lovely to put some more faces to names (and get a discount on my lemonade)(and jolly good it was too) and pay my first visit to the Anchor. Lifeboat night was amazing, and who was the guy who sang The Little Pot Stove?

For beautiful singing, perfect professionalism and generally being ever so good, my singing highlight was Karine Polwart, closely followed by Stream of Sound. I also loved Gog Magog and Windsor Morris joining forces to dance "Windsor Safari" in the sunshine on Friday...

For all those who have sent good wishes to Moira re: her brother, I've just heard that Jimmy is gradually getting stronger, though there's a long way to go.

Got there at last ,dear ---well done !! Anyway, as WFD says, we had a great time,and managed to have some days out of Sidmouth, ie in Budleigh Salterton, Otterton,Beer, and Branscome. I played a lot in the Bedford, as usual, mainly in the American Old Time Session, and met some nice Americans---- Jeff ,from Boston ( great banjo frailer and singer ) and Rod from Washington, who sang with Ric and me on the seafront. Also nice to meet and play with the Swiss lady and her banjo-playing husband from Penzance---anyone know their names ?? ( I think they"re in a group that plays at Bideford or somewhere). I also played with Doctor Rosie, late of Watford but now of Newcastle University, in the Radway----the first time I have EVER played there since starting to go to Sidmouth in 1965 !! All in all, a great Sidmouth for me/us...... despite the seemingly endless rain !! And the fireworks were really good, too.

Just about getting over it. As always had a great time, and it was good to see you there John (MacKenzie). I hope the weather didn't ruin it for too many, and to think what it would have been like if the Arena were there - all that mud. At least all the venues are now under cover.

As the New Tavern is not very well marked, he probably means that when he said The Dove. Many people I spoke to, did not know the location of the New Tavern, even less of The Newt, which is another of the 'in phrases' many folkies use, which puzzle newbies.
The same applies to the use of the term 'Sidders' which I loathe, it's both twee, and exclusive.

Highlights for me

Karen Tweed - though i know some will think it controversial but I thought it great to have such a female aspect to the festival (Jo Freya's Lal Project was great from this point of view to)

Chris Wood on Friday was outstandingly good

Haven't been for 3 years so don't know when the bunting was last used on The Esplanade but was sadly absent this year. Have heard through the grapevine that East Devon Distric Council still have it but refuse to hang it up because it might be - you've guessed it - a potential health & safety hazard! The insane bureaucrats have definitely taken over the world. Anyhow, have made my feelings known to the Sidmouth Tourist Office and Festival.

The firewoks were good though and it was great to see some international dance groups back again (Provence/Latvia).

All things considered, it was a very enjoyable Festival but there does still need to be more dancing along The Esplanade apart from the Sunday which is good.

So what were people's highspots then? I must admit that mine were, as usual the lunchtime sessions in the Volunteer with most of the usual suspects. Thanks to the In the Traditions sessions being included in the programme again (or whatever reason) there were more bodies this year, and some good singing and playing. I finally made it to the Radway (once), and actually played concertina two or three times for the first time in public, as well as singing ... oh and giving a talk on Lucy Broadwood at the Arts Centre . But I have to admit that I didn't really do any mainsteam stuff ... (and on the whole, didn't really miss it that much).

OK then. So even though there is not a procession, people do need to be in morris kit for it! Dancers need to collect a stick from me on Saturday, so they'll have something to clash when they are not taking part in a procession. (Or they can bring their own)

How about Breton Cap giving us the wurds for his demise of the Dove song too? Another place that won't be happening, malheureusement.

Ah! I've finally managed to get to the Mudcat and Sidmouth starting later this week - panic, panic!
Bad news! My camper has been off the road for over a month and at present its heart (ie engine) in bits on the floor of a van engine re-manufacturer!
Good news! The parts they have ordered should be delivered early tomorrow and its likely to be ready soon!
Bad news!   But it maybe not be ready until Friday (that is, if there are no major problems - that sound very threatening!) - and then I'd have to get it ready to come down to Sidmouth. Oh, b#gg#r!!
Good news! Thanks to Bob TB for posting the earlier note about the Doom, Gloom & Despondency Competition.
More good news! I've just found the DG&D records and have produced all the posters, fliers and admin forms etc.
Even more good news! Just to repeat: the competition starts at 4.30 SHARP on Thu 7 Aug in the Faulkner Lounge at the Royal York & Faulkner Hotel.
What we need now is up to 14 song entries fot the competition - tragic but funny too! I hope you are all composing a song as I write this!
Oh, yes, and we also need my camper to be ready by this Thu, if at all poss please!

The Newt
The Bedford
The York
The Fulkner*
The Balfour
The Anchor
Marine Bar
The Volunteer
The Radway
Sailing Club
Lifeboat Club

Now we know it's Doom and Gloom at the Faulkner * (Thursday afternoon)
What's the name of the game at the other places?
Which ones are just voices and which are instrumental?
Which are both?
Where can I bring my Swedish friends with their fiddles?

Of course all Mudcatters are welcome at Doom, Gloom and Despondency at 4.30pm Thursday in the Faulkener Bar. (Must be one of the longest running fringe events by now, along with the MBS and the one that doesn't happen on Friday afternoon.)

Appropriately subdued dress and demeanour is required throughout this sombre occasion and you will be evicted for failing to comply. There is a TROPHY for the most depressing song.

However it has been getting a little too serious of late. Trying to make people laugh, especially the judges, is encouraged but please do it in a despondent manner! Ah, I remember when MBS Lynne's brother won with a rather sad song about traffic lights. Those were the days. One year the judges had to evict themselves for levity!
