Subject: RE: A New Folk Festival at Moira.
Ok, my thoughts so far are:
We have two nearby pubs who are happy to have something going on. I have yet to talk to the landlords properly but I thought possibly two music sessions, a fast and slower one, in there. Then we have "The loft" which has brilliant accoustics and, if the weather is good, the possibility of opening the door and using the bridge over the canal as well. On Friday evening we're having the "Ashby de la Zouch Folk Club" and I'd like a "Big Sing" on Sunday morning. The rest of the time I thought of a shanty session, a "King Coal and the Cut" session with mining and canal songs, Middle Bar Sing, Mudgather......anything else? The loft is probably available all the time so we could have continuous sessions of one kind or another in there. Could possibly put the Mudgather in the pub....I must talk to the landlords this week and see what THEY want and what accomodation there is for singing and playing.

So..what do you think?

Love Lynne
