Subject: Who's getting excited about Sidmouth?
From: Ruth Archer
Date: 15 Jul 07 - 06:09 AM

I surely am. I had the Spooky Men's Chorale at my venue last night, and as they were leaving and calling out, "See you at Sidmouth!" I got a little flutter. Only a few weeks now! It's going to be a lovely one this year, methinks. I have a premonition that August is going to be glorious after all the horrid weather we've had - late summer and all that.

PS: it would be nice if this could stay a positive thread about the festival and what people are looking forward to seeing/doing, rasther than descending into a scrap and/or a sucking-of-gums about past history, as so many previous Sidmouth threads have done. I know I'm being excessively optimistic here, but what the hell.

A sunny Sidmouth, even without the folk festival is a wonderful thought. Its still absolutely pissing down here. I love all those places - Exmouth, Sidmouth, Lyme, Torquay.... I always think those little hotels on the front at at Sidmouth look like the sort of places that an Agatha Christie mystery should unfold, Murder on the Devon Riviera!

Last thursday, I bought a little campervan off e-bay. It was in Ross on Wye and I live near Nottingham, but it looked like a bargain. (Daihatsu, 2 years old, 8 thou on the clock - three and a half grand).

Anyway I've driven automatics for about ten years, so there I was huffing and puffing on the return journey - struggling with a very crotchetty four on the floor (went into reverse a couple of times by mistake!). Round about Droitwich there was a two hour hold up, just sat there dying for pee on the M5.

I'm not sure I can face the M5 again so soon - but it would be great! All the best to those who do make it down there.

I am starting a new job tomorrow ( Monday 16th ) , so I am excited about what my new boss is going to say when I ask him for two weeks off almost immediately after I"ve started !! But he"s a lovely man from Perth, WA, ( No, NOT Rolf Harris ! ), and it should be OK. Then , as a great fan of Hoover The Dog, I am excited about seeing them performing with the Belgians -------and getting down to the Bedford every day, of course !!

Weelittledrummer, ----Sidmouth HAS been used for a Christie murder drama. It was the Miss Marple episode about the girl from Australia or New Zealand who was born in the town, and witnessed a murder as a small child-------she goes there on honeymoon, and starts having "flashbacks" in a house she and her new RAF husband have rented. In the story, the town is called " Dilmouth ", but it is VERY recognisably Sidmouth !! I have seen the story a couple of times on TV, and it is quite a good "yarn", actually, starring, among others, that very good actor and comedian ( That Was The Week That Was , Randall & Hopkirk ) , Kenneth Cope.

Dear Ruth, Actually, I have been getting excited about Sidmouth since I first went----- In 1965 !!! The same year, I think, that Pete Coe went there. Of course, it was very different in those days !!---Lots of Morris dancing along the Esplanade, lots of earnest young men wearing "Donovan " hats with EFDSS badges in them ( Yes, including me ! ).No "Ham", of course---it wasn"t built then, and one of the main " venues was The Forge, long gone but it used to be somewhere around where the swimming pool and car-park are now.The Black Horse seemed to be the main focus in those days, and was always HEAVING with performers and dancers ,spilling out into both roads, every night. And you could go there by TRAIN !! Yes, a real CHOO-CHOO !!And we used to have informal and drunken singarounds on the beach at Jacobs Ladder, complete with huge driftwood fire and exploding pebbles ! Need a"risk assessment " for anything like that today, I fear !! See you in Sidmouth , love, Roger ( Formerly of " Robin & Roger," Sidmouth, Yeovil ,Dorchester,Weymouth, Exmouth and Exeter folk clubs,(among others) , 1964-1966.. xxx

Mixed feelings this year I'm afraid. Usually by now I'm getting really excited but I will only be able to be there from Thursday to Monday at the beginning and I can't really afford that. There's no Dove to go and sit and chat in! And the Middle Bar Singers wil be upstairs, not in the Middle Bar. Alright, I know it's a better room to sing in and it's the people who make the Middle Bar what it is, not the place, but I'm still a little sad at the change.

However I AM looking forward to seeing all my old (and I use the term advisedly) friends, all the more recent ones, and hopefully the new ones I'll make in the short time I will be there.

If any one wants to meet ME (getting jealous of all the attention Ruth Archer is getting *sulk) come to the Volunteer garden on Friday evening and join the Ashby de la Zouch folk club which I will be running.

I just hope it stops bloody raining!!!!

Love Lynne
ps Sorry Ruth, that wasn't incredibly positive. I AM looking forward to it.

I'm just reading a huge stack of press cuttings that Graham has sent me as background for my songwriting course. So anyone who fancies trying a song about the Napoli, come along to the Chape St Hall at 9.30am mon to fri. Got 6 gigs too, including with Parky, Maggie B and Jonny and Vix - and I'm billeted in the Bedford, so no doubt the old mandolin will get a bash as well. Se you there. Tom

Lynne: looking forward to meeting YOU, as it happens!

bubbly: those are the halcyon days that some of us will only ever know by reading "The First Week in August". Even though I'm pretty much a Sidmouth newcomer, hearing people's lovely memories of Sidmouths past makes you feel like you're part of that long continuum of folks who have attended over more than 50 years - it's quite a legacy.

Anahata: we haven't met, but I reviewed your most recent CD in EDS. So it will be nice to have a chance to say hi!

Surrey: I think the cinnamon vodka workshop would end up causing complete chaos in someone's kitchen. However, copious free samples of the finished product will be on offer - just look out for me carrying a very kitch 1950s-style thermos flask with flamingoes all over it...

Ballad fans have every reason to get excited about Sidmouth. In response to public demand at a ballad workshop I gave last year, there will be a daily ballad session (Sunday - Friday) at 3pm in Jack's Bar, hosted by Sheila Miller and Moira Craig, with occasional help from me.

Then on Thursday morning in the Bedford I will be presenting a performance of ballads from Child's collection, which I can promise will include death by stabbing, drowning, hanging and burning, the odd amputation, harsh retribution, jealousy, surrogate parenthood and all the usual wailing and grieving. On a more positive note, though, there will be plenty of heroism, derring-do, true love and (I hope) a few laughs, as well as a surprising number of happy endings.

Be there.

Hi Folks!

Excited? - well, yes and no. I won't make it down to Glorious Devon this year, and will greatly miss seeing all the friends who'll be there enjoying the unique experience that is Sidmouth Folk Week. If any old acquaintances are asking why, the answer is that in mid-August Hexham Morris will be dancing for England at a folklore festival in The Azores. (Apparently it can rain there too - but the rain is generally a bit warmer.)

Have a great Sidmouth 2007 everybody - hope to see you there another year.

Wassail!

Yes and no. Jon is coming down all week but I shall just pop down for a day or evening midweek. I can't miss the Lifeboat night in the Anchor. I can't get my head around not being in the middle bar after having been there for so many years! Yes I know all the arguments but it's still not the middle bar is it? The 'upstairs in a private room at the Anchor singers' doesn't have the same ring to it somehow. As for the rest of the festival looking down the guest list this time hasn't fired me with enthusiasm ~ don't know why. I quite fancy the ballad session though, so might drive over especially for that.

Yep, I'll be there - been counting the days for ages. My Morris lot don't go to Sidmouth, so I go on my own and tart for whoever will put up with me (mainly Herbascious Border!!). Will be doing some singing and drinking in all of the popular watering holes. Stewarding this year (for the first time - this will hopefully keep me fom spending SHED LOADS of money as I usually do - well, it might just shift the time frames that I spend it in!!)- in the Manor Pavillion.

So, safe trip down there, and looking forward to seeing many of you that I recognise by sight (and where I've seen you) but not necessarily by name!! So say hello to me please

Brian - "I can promise will include death by stabbing, drowning, hanging and burning, the odd amputation, harsh retribution, jealousy, surrogate parenthood and all the usual wailing and grieving."

All in the one ballad??? I SO want to learn that one,please - sounds just my sort of thing. (Who needs happy endings??) Glad to hear that the ballad sessions are definitely on the menu... that should fill in a few afternoon gaps for me!

As to that new Beat Combo, Ralphie, glad to note that Pierce isn't bringing the drum kit**,otherwise there'd be no room in the Volunteer for anybody else other than Housewives' Choice and possibly Malcolm at the bar [grins]

Gutted not to be there, for the first time in 28 years.
Work and, probably more importantly, the demise of the Dove are the cause of my abscence.

I am happy that I am leaving the Doom, Gloom and Despondency session in safe hands.

Fiona and I will definately be at Bromyard and will try to make Grove and Fylde this year (and the AMBS reunion and Chippenham next year). So, hopefully we'll see some of the Sidders crowd about.

Yes indeed.

Curious drinkers need to know.

Thought I knew all the watering holes in Sidmouth but I've never come across or fallen out of a Jack's Bar.

I do of course know the Jack that Giok refers to but he is far too indiscriminate to claim any single bar as his own.

You'd normally expect to get five or six of those per ballad as a matter of course, but I'm struggling to think of one including both amputations and surrogate parenthood. Then again a certain amount of creative tampering is generally considered acceptable when deaing with the Child oeuvre, so it's not impossible I might have contrived something by August 9th.

I don't know where Jack's Bar is either. They haven't sent me the venue map yet, only the schedule.

Nope. In 25 years I've never come across Jack's bar either and I thought I'd been in every drinking place in Sidmouth including some that are no longer there.

As for the famous Jack, he's probably been there. In fact maybe it wasn't called Jack's Bar until then?
