Subject: RE: Celtic Connections 2004!!!
Harriet: sorry I don't have any say in whom Sidmouth book, and I think they probably work more than a year ahead! Have you or your agent tried contacting them yourself?
Where were all the catters on Saturday? I wore my Mudcat T-shirt on Friday evening and Saturday, but no-one took the bait. perhaps because it looks too much like a former year's Celtic Connections T-shirt!
Agree that Bagad Kemper and Carlos Nunez's concerts were amazing: would have liked to see more of Susana Seivane on the Friday: had planned to come and see her at Barrowlands on the Sunday, but after tedious (M8 totally closed!) and icy journey back on Saturday(car nearly slid offf the road while driving slowly in a straight line!) I decided not to risk it.
Also tried to get into the Open stage on Saturday, but the queue was long and not moving, so enjoyed the impromptu bluegrass session at
one of the instrument-makers' stalls, including a superb rendition (not the rugby version!) of "Swing Low" and some graet mandolin and slide guitar.
Next gig is "Baltic tae Byzantium" as long as it's not too Baltic to brave the roads again!
Cheers, Tattie
