If any of you are in Holmfirth tomorrow (Sunday 17th) you can help support NEXT YEARS festival by dropping in to the Farmers Market and buying yourself a bacon butty from the "Feed the (Festival of) Folk" stall. All profits raised go towards the Festival and last year raised well over £1000

We can be found in the downstairs section of the market on the 3rd Sunday of each month (and also sell mugs of tea & coffee)

Soldier Boy we picked up various bits of tent poles this morning which had appeared on the football field (they weren't there on Monday!) and wondered if they might be what you need to replace the one that was vandalised. They are in the back of my car if they are of any good.

If you encountered anyone nicking sounds by means of a digital recording device in the boozers and streets - in the best folk spirit - it was Yours Gluely. Manners suggested I ask first, the thought of stopping musicians in full flight meant I pressed record and answered questions later.

Yes Shaun spelt right and wrong in the programme!

Never saw Tyke/George all weeekend nor Soldier Boy

Dozy Rosy in the Stamps sang very nicely [Sun and the Moon]

Thanks to Jim Potter (with crutches) and Alma and Alan Wright, John Greaves and the every dependable Neville

Never saw String Theory, so didn't fall over this year (could still be a Wibberley Wobberly next year Tyke! tho')

Saw some new people ~ good 'un Gerry McNeice and some great photos from Ani McNeice, Michelle Holding lovely singer, the "Vibrantly Energetic" Flossie with her franglais who knows English better than most of us (I am not kidding either)

Jez Lowe and band, off on distant travels did an hour and a half on Sunday

Hamish Currie, very professional performance

Cockersdale were superb, catch em before they retire (25th year).

Didn't recognise Zoe Mulford until the end!

And sterling work from my old friend Lindsay Wilson and Barry Evans who did the pa

Nice to see some of the old uns such as Monologue John and Dorothy, and the genius who is Roy Blackman

Harry Wilson, I will buy you a tea at least! next time I see you, some brilliant filling breakfast from the Corner House, from early am

Did not recognise Muppett (two tees and two pees), full beard and tash very dark!!

Steve R and Jim McDonald who tried to get me drunk on Saturday pm

Finally Cath Ingham and Phil Jenkinson and all the Team and of course all who came and did their bit (most importantly)

One year I might get Holmfirth Anthem right!!

We Came We sang We Enjoyed.

Yes Taggart and Wright behaved themselves for once.

Our week-end went like this
Friday Night Angie sang at No.11 in the Open Mic. A nice little venue.
We then wandered around hoping to find somewhere else but they were all packed so we wandered back to camp and early bed. It was FREEZING!

Saturday
Anne arrived and they did an hour or two in the campsite going over about a dozen songs they used to sing all those years ago . A few lyrics gave them problems. Old age affecting their memory no doubt. Then into town. I carried both guitars.
They sang in Stamps in the afternoon then lunch upstairs and into town for a spot at the folk club in the White Hart and the open mic at No.11. A wander around town where we found it packed again. Trying to get in anywhere carrying two guitars was a problem so we went back to Stamps to drink all the beer!!!!
Oh yes the worst of it was they NEVER used their guitars anywhere that day. I must have walked miles carrying them!!!

Sunday
Missed the spoons workshop due to lunch or was it breakfast!! But they did go to Stamps AGAIN. We left early to grab a bite to eat before heading off and actualy managed to catch some of the dancing.

Thanks to everyone for putting up with them. Thanks to Dave of Fryish for giving them time at both No11 and the White Hart and to Steve and Ray at Stamps.
Special thanks to the lovely ladie we met in the Postcard on FRiday night when they saw we were frozen and soaked and they offered us a bed for the night when they heard we were under canvas !!

Thanks for a great friendly welcome some even remebered them from years back when they guested at Rhuddlan Festival and all those years ago when they opened at the Picturdrome.

If they behave can they come back next year??

Hi Cath, Not surprised you did not catch me not been so well lately so I spent a lot of time on energy conservation. I was well looked after by the Family Stocks though. I was going to head into Holmfirth from the campsite after I had a shower on Saturday afternoon only to be greeted by a cloud burst.

I have only one complaint, which is that Marie Blackburn and Lucy Stocks would not let me play my Banjo. They didn't complain when I was playing it on the campsite saving them a space for their tents did they!

Muppet was in fine voice on Saturday as was Harry who we have been encouraging to start singing for the last two years. The only trouble is that now there is no stopping him. In fact a lot of friends turned up on Saturday in the Elephant and were responsible for drinking all the Beer. I can only apologise to anyone I missed out when I was organizing the Musicians and Singers Round provided by Janet the landlady. The Bar Staff in the Elephant and Castle worked extremely hard all weekend I'm sure everyone would wish me to include them in my saying thank you and well done.

Did anyone see Ted perhaps he was in the Nook which was packed out all weekend so much so I did not even try to force my way in. It's seems to me Holmfirth Festival Of Folk has had yet another successful weekend. Great job and thank you to all the committee and organizers. See you all soon and back at Holmfirth in 2010.

Thanks to all for coming. Sorry I missed you Tyke - I never got to look in the Elephant and I never saw you in transit.
We've just been round the town and it is all returned to it's former glory - no rubbish, no mess, all clean and tidy.
The committee all enjoyed it which says a lot and we've had lots of positive comments so I suppose we'll have to do it again next year!!
In the meantime Peter is running his concerts at the Picturedrome, Number 11 is on every other Thursday (this week) with the Open Mic and a new venture has started at Hepworth Village Hall - I can't remember the guest list for this but I do remember that it's good and they do have a web site.
See you all next year if not before!

Hiya,
      I didn't think my temporary absence from the festival scence would have caused such concern, but it was very touching seeing everyone who had when I was at Holmefirth at the weekend. Great to see and be with you all again.Enjoyed the sessions I took part in on Saturday & Sunday around the Town, these included, the Elephant & Castle, the Bridge, downstairs at the Postcard and of course the Nook. Back at work now with a vey sore throat.

The only down side of the event was that I did suffer from the tent attackers in the early hours of Sunday morning, fortunalty it didn't end up like Soldier boy's one though.

Any Road great to be back and I'll possibly be at Robin Hood's Bay in a week or 2.

Cheers

Muppett

Where was I when I missed Janets' free round of drinks? damn it!

Yes Splott Man the extra security on the campsite did work, except for one incident before they took up their posts on Friday night when one tent was damaged - MINE!!
A brand new tent which I only bought on Thursday!

Apparently some kid decided to jump or throw himself on my tent for a bit of fun and broke a pole.

That pissed me off, of course, but on the plus side one of the campsite stewards took it upon himself to do a repair job on the pole by fixing a makeshift splint to the pole so that the tent was habitable and would not cave in under a heavy downpour.

Cath and other organisers, if you read this,please pass on my sincere thanks to this caring and very thoughtful individual.
This was a very generous act and above and beyond the call of duty.
Well done that man!

So, having my faith restored in humanity, I'm not going to complain. But if the committee decide to look kindly on me and offers to compensate me for repair costs or costs of a new tent then please do PM me. I would be very happy to hear from them.

Special thanks to Shawn (might be wrong spelling) who took very good care of me when I arrived on the campsite and following the vandal incident. A very fine fellow who did a really excellent job.
Thank you.

We all had a great time the Landlady, Janet, at the Elephant and Castle had a big smile on her face having sold out of several brands of Beer on Saturday Night, Fresh stocks would be ready for Sunday Lunch Time. Thats Fresh stocks of beer not the Fresh Ken Stocks. A big thank you to Janet for the round of drinks she bought for the all Musicians and singers.

Well it's the Beverly Heratage Festival the weekend after next for our Band of Friends. So see you all there?

Just got back after a hectic last 10 miles (M4 closed near Cardiff, detours through Newport and Cardiff with 2 near misses of my own!).
Dame Pattie & I had a fantastic weekend - thanks Cath and crew.
The extra security seemed to do the trick for the campsite, and the family ceilidh was great fun, and seemed to work better upstairs away from the market stalls (talking of which, no Hawaiian shirt seller this year, I'll have to source my calling shirt for the next 12 months elswhere).
Great meeting some new friends and a few old ones too!

Roll on next year.

V.good. As well as pub sessions managed to see Eliza Carthy and Bellowhead. Thought B'head looked a bit road tired, or maybe their sound was slightly screwed. Still top drawer but not as relaxed as I've seen them before. Also lineup changed - is this permanent or stand in?

Just got back from Holmfirth and apart from suffering today from a dodgy donner kebab I had last night, I had a brilliant time.

And judging by the number of people crammed into the pubs and hotels etc and the great crowds of people out on the streets during the day I,m pretty damned certain that EVERYONE had a great time.

What a festival!!

I,d like to say a big THANK YOU to the festival committee and to all the stewards and to everyone who volunteered and helped out.
You did a fantastic job!

There have been various sightings of the illusive and endangered Muppett recently, including last weekends' Moor and Coast Festival.

So it looks like he is fit and well (after suffering a serious bout of pneumonia in January this year) and I just hope that he can get along to Holmfirth F of F.

For more info of sightings of the lesser-spotted,short-panted,large-haired,ruck-sack-carrying,singing-and-dancing Muppett bird check out the "WHERE'S MUPPETT ??" thread here on Mudcat.

Woo hoo! A three day working week, then...

...the joys of Holmfirth! It has already been a folk-encrusted (as in bejewelled) week: Twickenham on Sunday, Chichester tonight, Baldock on Wednesday. And then three days of great company, music and general malarky. Does life get any better?

Bad news or is it good news you will have to decide for yourselves! Anne cant get to Holmfirth until Saturday morning . Her husband Dixie, He is the musically talented one in the Von Taggart family, is off to London to play piano for some Ballet Dancers exams. Anyway he will drop her off en route.
It does mean they will have less time to ruin songs by practicing them!
That means you will only have to contend with Angie on the Firday night.
Meanwhile I am trying to get our camping stove to work. The pressures of touring!!!!
Haven't seen Muppet for years.
