Well, prepare for a gush. Totally, totally glorious. Wonderful weather people and music. The best Piggy ever (despite the untouchable music from the Young Coppers last year) taking one thing with another.

For the first time in my life I enjoyed a "tunes session" - taking my place in the mandolin orchestra with most of "Wasps in the Woodshed" (including TWO harp players) a wonderful piano accordian player, two wonderful button meolodeon players, a threepenny bit player more than holding her own - a silver piccolo player (I think it was), and driving rhythms from Bernard on the Djembe nobly assisted by a girl who played castanets better than average and kept hinting at apanish dance with her movements, and I think it must have been her sister dancing her skin off. And many others - at least two fine fiddlers, three tenor players who kept out of each other's way - all avoiding the "Lets play another Irish tune as fast as we can - how do they tell them apart" trap. I think there were a few Irish tunes, but it never got samey.

Fine stuff outside in the big (ish) tent on the PA rig. The Piggies themselves unfailingly helpful and polite, and pretending to like what one played (Oh, all right, Grant did say of my version of "Gentlemen of High Renown" - - - "Only you would think of doing that to it" - but I took it as a compliment.

A terrific range of music, from 60s/70s electric rock through to hard core 1954 English folk.

The pub food not exhorbitantly priced, a good range of beer in good condition and at fair prices, level(ish) part s of the field kept for caravans to avoid bog driving even if it was wet, which it wasn't.

Bargain price tee-shirts.

Perfection!

It's almost deserted here now. Marquee came down and went in 1 hour (how do they do that). We had a lovely gentle end of festival session last night, with Bob Kenward finishing the evening with one of his brilliant songs, and what's more finished on time.
A big, BIG thanks you to Pig's Ear for putting on such a great and rounded festival. As Richard so rightly said it was an inspired mix of guests, none of which would disgrace any of the bigger festivals. All in all a brilliant time.
On a personal note, thanks to all who came to the friday, saturday and sunday evening sessions, you make my life so easy.
John Barden

Don't go direct to Knockholt thread. Do not pass go, and if collecting £200.00, pass it on to us poor leopards. There was a great shortage of antelope on the plains of Markbeech. We had to rough it by eating "dogfood" stew, veggie pasta, and bacon sarnies. Our newly acquired winch worked like a dream, and putting the caravan in the garage was a breeze. However, Len still had to lie down in a darkened room afterwards. Thanks to all pigs and piglets for a great weekend.

A very well done to everybody who both played and sung at the sing around,s and also to the booked performers in the Marquee a brilliant show one and all. It was fantastic to have a floor spot so close to those Harpists and to see first hand how both beautifully they played and clearly how difficult the Harp is to play and then later on in the evening to have the pleasure of sitting with them and my other tent neighbors to chat and drink and tell jokes more or less to sun up Sunday Morn.

Well done to the bar staff of The Kentish Horse who worked tirelessly especially on the Saturday night when the place was bursting . At one point I went to the bar clean shaven and by the time I was served I had grown a Goatee but none the more for that well done.

To Naughty forty and little apprentice it was fun having you share but may be difficult to comfortable accommodate you both in future has I have decided to go back to a small tent. solely to be able to travel light to these great events. I hope the new people who have my tent now have has much fun has I have had in it ?

Ride On was great on the Saturday night and I really got into it although this time I left the finger picking out has that is Mr Bridges bit. I fear in my enthusiasm I may have drowned out poor Melodeon boy who was sitting right next to me ,Sorry mate.

Thanks to Richard Bridge who showed me with great patients and explanation the proper way to string up a guitar 1.2.1. tuition which I wont forget, clearly a great teacher and a wit to boot.
thanks Woodsiie my mate and drinking partner. Its a shame we never found that magic cottage in the woods. And that bloody Thorn is still in my foot.
I should have seen Chris the healer a perfect gentleman who sorted out Naughty Forty when her foot got thorns it on the Saturday and he worked tirelessly to remove all of them back at our tent.

I am some what worried that Val wants me to wear a long dress at Knockholt? some thing to do with me long hair and tight bum in cut-downs. Hopefully it was because she was pissed and now she is sober she wont remember or if she does she will clearly realize that the whole idea is ridiculous and that will be the end of the matter. Yeah Right?

And finally to John Barden who if it was not for him I would have had a difficult time getting to the event on Friday and a impossible time getting both meself and all me stuff back home again.

To Pigs Ear The event was great .£25.00 well spent and I look forward to seeing every one at Knockholt.

I tried to find a surfeit of lampreys, but not a single one to be had. The Larkins Blonde on the other hand (and I don't mean Catherine Zeta Jones in a wig, although come to think of it)was delicious, and a surfeit was almost worth it. Have the 'Folk Police' come knocking yet Richard?

Actually, I'm a little scared that it may show how dreadful I really am. I nearly stopped playing after the first few Nags head vids until Fisheye got that wonderful Rode mic on his camera and it found the tone in my voice that my voice didn't...

RB - the flaws you hear in recordings of your own voice, others don't.

Got to agree that Rode mic does pick up so well that I can even bear to listen to recordings of myself. Now if only that camera could slim bodies and smooth wrinkles, I wouldn't feel so self conscious.

Thank you Woodsie, I'm not ashamed of that. Pity Grant puts so much treble on the guitar and indeed PA generally: a bit less brightness, and a spot of bass boost, chorus, and reverb (or even straight slapback) would have transformed that performance. In real life the guitar is quite warm and resonant, and the bug in it is a Headway (a good one).

I see what you meant about the "toys" shelf on the mic stand though - it gets in the way of your shots of my left hand almost every time!

It probably isn't Grant's fault. My camera is a cheapo JVC with built in Mic and youtube compresses and changes format. I thought your guitar sounded fantastic. Part 2 & 3 will follow on my next post - I have had to compress these to 10% to upload quickly so quality may not be perfect, I think it's OK. I will eventually burn the uncompressed stuff to a DVD when I get time!

Thank you Woodsie. My guitar mistakes on "Coalhouse Door" grate, but the ones on Substitute are not too obvious. Shame you missed the little tease intro about it being a folk song and seeing who clocked it the first time down the neck - you start at the second time down!

Pete - the reason it is pausing is to do with streaming speed. The data has to be buffered first then played back. What is happening here is that the playback is faster than the buffering, Press the pause button and you will see the buffering grey line move slowly left to right, when you press play again the "play line" is a darker red colour and follows over the "buffer line"

Richard - I did edit a lot of stuff out because I wanted to keep the upload to a minimum size. There was a lot of overpowering background noise (probably me!) on the intro. Sorry about the poorer quality of part 2 & 3 but, again I had to squeeze the file to a minimum as I was hogging the family computer! Part 1 was a bit better but took ages to upload.
