Yes Lawrie, there'll be a tune session in the boat room in the Minerva, far enough away from the singers so they don't get up each others' noses! As for {talented} people who do both, near enough so they can commute (if they so desire). Maybe see you tomorrow, in Black Boy?

I'll probably come over for this. What's the score re overnight parking of motor homes, at the marina? And are the venues dog friendly?

Looks an interesting? mix.

Unfortunately the royal we (both of us) will be at a long established traditional event in Suffolk, together with Jim & Lynnette.

Hope it goes well for you.

Thanks Les, a very good session, I thought, just the right size, plenty of musicians and a good audience.
And it will be very good to see you again Mick, since the Welly sessions stopped our paths haven't much crossed except in Sullivan's in Hornsey!
However, do not expect me at any midweek lush sessions in Hull, I'm still doing my bit for heducashun on the South Bank!
I'll keep looking on the website.

Cheers
Lawrie

Sorry Les but Margaret and I won't be able to escape from the wilds of Essex for the weekend. If the session is as good as the night we had with you in the Endeavour at Whitby then the folks of Hull are in for a treat. Very best wishes to you and Maggie.

Sorry about that Paul,.I will adjust that on the publicity with Adam and Robin.We have all been flying around like lunatics for last coupla weeks trying to get all stuff sorted.

Everything is looking great as we speak.If the footfall is as good as the Sess fest a coupla weeks ago(40,000) will be fantastic!!

The Blue Bell folk club exhibition is looking really good; original stuff from both the Folk Union One and The Rugby Folk club.

Paul, I will ring you re: this before Friday.

Well, we had a fantastic time at Hull today. Apologies to Maggie and Les that we didn't make it back into the Minerva singaround after our guest spot - we ended up outside talking to lots of folks we hadn't seen in a long time. It sounded great from outside though, and there was a lovely atmosphere all round. Just wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks to all involved in making it such a nice day!

Sorry I was unable to make it across today as intended, as a family emergency and a lot of pain finally conspired to keep me confined.
Hoping to be fit enough by next year to be able to get properly involved.

Yes, great success. Well done to the organisers. Just a few logistical problems which could easily be ironed out for next year. The organisers need to get their act together quickly though for next year if they want to be part of the festival circuit.

What's likely to be the main theme of the session, Mally?

Anything goes? Irish? English? Singing allowed? Mixture? When is the next one?
