Subject: Hull Shanty Festival - Anyone Going?
From: Blowzabella
Date: 09 Aug 08 - 06:35 AM

I last went a few years ago but thinking about going along again this year, as i wasn't able to get to see pals at Liverpool this year. Just wondering if any other shanty fanatics are going along? I know from the website that there is a fair old line-up - my own faves from the guestlist being Stormies / Three Sheets to the Wind (Derek Gifford + Keith Kendrick + Geoff Higginbottom)/ Monkeys Fist and Bitter End.

Will there be anything happening on the Friday night, does anyone know? Just wondering whether it would be worth booking accom for Friday & Saturday or just Friday?

There is usually a good session in the White Hart on both Friday night. I expect stuff will be happening at the Minerva too as I believe it is staying open until after the festival.

For anyone who has not been to the Hull Maritime Festival before, it is worth stressing that this is a more or less FREE festival. The Hull City Council, who are responsible for funding and publicity, do not make this very clear either in their printed or their web site publicity despite the fact that this must be one of the festival's outstandingly attractive features. I presume that the format is roughly the same as in recent past years which is as follows,

There is a large stage, with seating facing, on the town centre dockside where the booked guests perform throughout the day for free.

There are performance sessions on board some of the vessles such as the Syntan with a rota of the booked guests. This is free.

During the day in various pubs around the dockside and down towards the river there are singarounds where every hour booked guests also appear to perform for about 15 minute on a rota system. This is free.

On the Saturday there is a concert that you have to pay to get in to and on the Sunday there is a Survivors' Session where you have to pay. However, there have in the past been free 'fringe' singarounds in The Minerva ( I don't know about the other pubs). Also on the Friday night there has been a fringe singaround in The White Hart.

All of this adds up to a potentially cracking free festival if you want to make it so.

Perhaps Les , Ossenflags or anyone else with more precise times and venues for this year can fill in the details so those wanting to come can know exactly where and when to congregate. I note that several people have asked about the Friday but there has been nothing definite stated about a venue or time.

Now read the Hull City web site publicity reproduced below and you will see what a grand time could be had by all for free (or in exchange for a few jars of ale)


Hull Marina is the daytime setting for open-air performances of sea songs and shanties against a magnificent backdrop of traditional, classic and working vessels.

The quaysides will be alive with demonstrations of traditional crafts including woodcarving, ship bottling, net mending, lobster and crab pot braiding and a coopering demonstration. There will be stalls where visitors can buy maritime paintings, books, smocks, novelties and food and drink. Children will be able to make maritime items at the salt dough workshop or try making a mask. A variety of vessels will also be on display.


Artists already confirmed for this year include -

Bitter End
Cathead
Chris Roche
Dave and Julie Evardson
Hans Weehuizen (Netherlands)
Hissyfit
La Bouline (France)
Lord Nelson
John and Zeke
Jim Radford
Risor Shantykoor (Norway)

Monkey's Orphan
Naze Shanty Crew
Scolds Bridle
Shanty Jack
Shellback Chorus
Shep Woolley
Stormalong John
Three Sheets To The Wind
A-Drift
John Conolly
Hull Community Theatre



- with more acts to follow.


Evening concerts
Saturday 6 September 2008
An evening of maritime entertainment taking place in the Mortimer Suite within the prestigious Hull City Hall, 8pm - 11pm. Tickets are £7.50.

Sunday 7 September 2008
The festival will be brought to a close with an informal sing-a-round "Survivors' Session" in the friendly surroundings of The Portland Hotel, Kingston Suite, 8pm - 11pm. Tickets are £4.50.

As Brid Widder says, you'll be welcome in the Hop and Vine, but it is rather small. Maggie and I can't do Friday night, but I've had a word with Dean who has the George (Land of Green Ginger) and shanty people will be welcome there. Or there should be room in the Minerva. Have fun, whatever you do!

as the White Hart remains closed for refurbishment.
The Friday Night welcome session will take place at Durty Nellys, 48 High Street, Hull.
This is an informal, free session and usually great fun.

Excellent Geoff! Ruscadors is the pub previously called the Heritage. Singing usually continues in the Minerva after the 5pm mentioned.

There's also the evening events:

Saturday 6 September 2008
An evening of maritime entertainment taking place in the Mortimer Suite within the prestigious Hull City Hall, 8pm - 11pm. Tickets are £7.50.

Sunday 7 September 2008
The festival will be brought to a close with an informal sing-a-round "Survivors' Session" in the friendly surroundings of The Portland Hotel, Kingston Suite, 8pm - 11pm. Tickets are £4.50.

For non-concert goers there's a chance to see Ossonflags with his band 'Punch the Horse' at Durty Nellies on Saturday from about 9pm or there's the almost-legendary Anti-Shanty in the Minerva from about 8pm, a general session where people are allowed to do non-maritime songs and tunes etc.

To get to Durty Nellie's from the rest of the festival site, follow Blackfriargate down the side of Ruscadors round and under the Castle Street Bridge into High Street. Don't play with the traffic!

I don't know if we can make it at all... maybe sunday afternoon for a bit... we have it on good authority that the Minerva has recieved it's last delivery of beer... the landlord has never done a shanty weekend before so doesn't know what's in store...I think the staff warned him that he should order lots... I don't know if he believed them... lets hope the beer doesn't run dry!!

Very sad to think of the Minerva being drunk dry.

Would there be a song?

We were going to go until my father decided to be very inconsiderate and have his birthday this weekend....and then my almost sister in law decided to give birth to our first nephew the other day so we have to go visit them on Sunday.....

Some people just don't think do they!! :)

That Hull pub map is well out of date, just on Beverley Rd. there are two pubs missing Zach Pearsons and the Bevvy. The Turnpike is now a Lidl and Hockneys has closed . Just noticed the last update was 2001!

Plenty of water anyway. I prefer to look down on it in the marina though.

Although I only managed to get to the second day of the Festival (after a very wet trip down on Syntan on the Friday) I would like to say how much I enjoyed it, especially the singaround in the Minerva.

I had a great time didnt think it posible for a human to absorb that much rain water, but dried off by Sunday evening-enjoyed the singing especially on Syntan and in the Minerva.

I didn't catch all of the open air performance but I especially liked: Scold's Bridle - their song 'Molly' brought tears to me eyes - Monkey's Orphan, who did 'Fire Down Below'? (it appeals to my scat sense of humour)! and 3 Sheets to the Wind - they sang one that went something like 'a sailor's not a sailor any more?' does anyone know the origins of this song?   Jane :)

That would be this song by Tom Lewis.

Maggie and I had a great time (as usual), and particular thanks to the 'Anti Shantiers' in the Minerva on Saturday night.

Another irony was the song that suggested that when there was no more fishing, the men could get jobs as miners.
