Subject: To the Young UK members! =0D

Hey..

I'm a young Folky myself and I've been thinking about starting up a youngsters type session weekend. Where yougsters can gather and spend the weekend playing, singing and so on. I'm not sure of a venu and other details yet but I was wondering what interest there would be?

If it happens then it will be in the lancashire Area. Any ideas on places it could be held that could provide like a main hall and lodgings would be appreciated! Also if anyone would be interested in helping out by doing workshops during the weekend etc etc...

Hi Simon a venue could be found at a youth hostel. They rent the whole hostel to groups over the winter at a very reasonable cost. Hostels can house between 6 and 96 people depending on the size of your group. Local catters of your age group would be Firecat, Jezabel, Sam Pirt, Ian Stephenson.
Cheers Bill

A good idea could be to start a folk club at your college or university, talk to the student union people about this.

As a young folky (26) we organise a lot of these weekends (however thety are in scotland)although you are welcome to join. We usually go away for the weekend to a small hotel or a pub with accomodation close by. I'm not sure if you fancy this as I don't know exactly how young you are. But all the above suggestions are good hostels etc. Forming a society in college is a good idera and probably allows you to get sponsors. In my university years ago we got a VERY VERY large sum of money from Toyota (bless their little hearts) to promote irish music and language.

I live in dundee now but every few months or so we organis e sessions where we meet up with friends frae Edinburgh & Aberdeen. The last one was in Dougie MacLeans in Dunkeld. I think the next one is Glen Clova. They are usually in that general direction as it is fairly central to the threee cities involved.

Yes 28 is young (but just about) ;)

Sorry weepiper although a squad does come up from Edinburgh, the vast majority are from Dundee and Aberdeen. So no I don't konw them. Where do they play in Edinburgh?

jock yes of course you are young enough. - ya auld bastard ;). Most of the crowd are in their twenties. But it certainly isn't exclusive. There are all ages represented. It tends to be a young crowd because some of us went to college in Ireland together and by chance ended up living in Scotland.

BE WARNED though. It is a big crowd last time (20+) which while good craic does make for a noisy session. When we get around to sorting out a date and venue I'll post it here so anyone interested can come along if they wish.

Sorry may have got my wires crossed. They play most often in tne Ensign Ewart pub on the Lawnmarket. James is also involved with the University Folk Soc. Hmmm. Am sure they know the same crowd, I've heard 'em talk about a similar mass session in/near Dunkeld... Do you know Glyn Morris (piper) or lad called Joe (small pipes/flute) who looks like Gordon Duncan?

I may well have met them at some stage. I don't normally play in Edinburgh. But I could have run into them in dunkeld or somewhere like that. The names don't ring a bell at the moment. It's still early in the week ;)

I remember one night in Dunkeld we went to a party after in someones house and Gordan Duncan was there. Well tanked up, but played some cracking tunes even though he could hardly stand.

Do you play around Edinburgh yourself?

however For Your Information:

the Ben Nevis in Argyle Street, Glasgow, has a weekly session on a Wednesday evening which is almost entirely supported by Young Whippersnappers. Traditional Scottish stuff - (nobody knows any slow tunes, apparently).. high quality...

The Ben Nevis is along the far end of Argyle Street, towards the Kelvin Hall end..

Mikey Joe,
Yeah, I'm in the Ensign Ewart on a Thursday, also frequently in the Royal Oak and Sandy Bell's.
Gordon Duncan is famed for his ability to play when arseholed, one year at the Highland Annual he got so pissed he tried to climb down the fire escape of Teviot Union and the bouncers were going to throw him out before he'd even done his spot, but he was persuaded back in and proceeded to play a blinder.

Sadly it isn't alway 'cool' (I mean 'Hip' - if you go back that far - *GRIN*) to be a 'Folkie'. Lizabee, they do crop up rom time to time, usually on holiday. There are one or two on Portland, but one is at college and I don't believe the other is old enough to drink alcohol just yet. They are, however very fine musicians.

It's neither of the above realy Roger, I love all the folkclubs I drift to & from & have made some realy great friends of all ages, but sometime It would be nice to meet up with others my age (I tend to stick out being 20yrs younger than the rest of the room.) Though I can report that last Month in Dorchester I wasnot the youngest There!!! I Teenager no less turned up, I'm looking forward to seeing if she returns thismonth as she said she would :)
