From: Alio
Date: 07 Nov 07 - 07:33 PM

To all those people who didn't want me to leave the festival - I'm not doing! I'm staying as Festival Director - but not doing any of the jobs except running the desk over the weekend!!! So I get the best of both worlds, which is great!

The guest list is looking good too - Chris While and Julie Matthews, Nancy Kerr and James Fagan, Bill Whaley and Dave Fletcher, Mary Humphreys and Anahata, Flossie, Stanley Accrington, Anthony John Clarke, Hissyfit, John Prentice, the Shellbacks and Roy Clinging and Neil Brookes. Plus loads of young performers this time - Mawkin Causley, Kerfuffle, Elbow Jane, 4Square, and Roots Alive.

And we've got the Wars of the Roses rematch - hopefully Yorkshire will win it this year - although I'm comletely unbiased of course!!

So see you all there, on July 18th to 20th = with excellent weather as usual!!

Love, Ali

Sadly this does not fall in the school holidays so it is unlikely that I'll be able to summon up enough energy for the trek.

Make sure that Bill and Dave get a loooooong set!

Thanks all of you. it will be lovely to be able to meet, greet, chat and drink without any of the hassle of organising!!

Have you sen Mawkin Causley, Villan? Their demo CD is great, which is why I booked them, but I've not seen them perform. We're making a huge effort to get more young people involved this year.

Yes I have seen Mawkin Causley Ali. I saw them at Derby Trad Festival the other week. I am very very impressed with them. I would love to get them to Faldingworth, and the same applies to Kerfuffle.

Ooooh, hopefully Glen won't work me too hard this year, there's a fair few of them I want to see, but most especially the lovely lads of Elbow Jane, I spent Fylde weekend stalking them as I had no food tent to work in, ended up selling CD's for them when someone thought I was part of the entourage!!!
Chris & Julie, Nancy & James and AJ are all on the list too!

Looking forward to it, glad you've been able to maintain your input Ali!

Hi Ali,
       We wish you all the best with the festival and see you in January. If we are not busy we will try to make it.

Forgive us if this is a silly question or is somewhere else on mudcat but how about putting a link to your radio shows here and the details.

Thanks

Great line up .Lots of my favourite people. How about adding Muldoon's Picnic to your list of must have young people. They are a terrific and lively harmony group from Glasgow and we should see more of them down here. They run great workshops too.And what about the Young Uns from Hartlepool. They were at the Ingleton folk Festival
Request: Please can there be more than one venue for singer's sessions..much too crowded last year and the year before.

Hi Bobcat. I'm still doing the Running Order for the committee so I'll work it in somehow. Muldoon's Picnic came this year, so it might be a couple of years before they're back again. Too many good performers around - that's the problem!!

HIssyfit have just been on my radio programme doing an interview and singing live - they were brill! I'm really glad they're coming back to Saddleworth next year!

With the recent snowfall it seems like it's still winter but I'm sure the sun will be shining and 'Puddleworth 07' will be a distant memory.

"plenty of food spots" Ray. Where?
That's the main trouble I have had at Saddleworth is getting a meal in the evening / teatime. The cafes are usually closing, the Indian hasn't opened yet & the only pub that serves good beer has a long wait for food. I wouldn't say there were plenty of food spots (only down the front of my tee shirt).
Cheers

Muppitz! how can you be so cruel?!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Les, I've been trying to sort teatime meals out. There's a newish cafe in the village - Christy's - run by a friend of mine. Next month she'll get a licence, so it'll be a cafe bar. On the Friday they're hosting a session from 6p.m. as her husband is a fiddle player. But she's also opening from 9a.m. till 10p.m. every day over the festival weekend. Hope that helps? Aren't you sooooooooo impressed with me?!!

Oh, and we've got around 65 events again this year!

True Guest Glueman,true. When I lived there the changes from Yorkshire to Greater Manchester were being proposed. There was talk of land mining the roads at Lees and Springhead...
There was always a sense of 'summat for nowt' in those days. Saddleworth got all its services from Oldham, but paid its rates to Wakefield.
Tell the truth, I went back briefly five years ago for a funeral. It all seemed a bit yuppified to me. The pub where I was on the dominos and darts team is now a high-end gastropub, people eating stuffed cabbage rather than playing cribbage. Hang on; unrestricted nostalgia; I may be turning into a folkie! AAAArrrgggHHH!

Living on the other side of the hill and an incomer anyway the sensitivities are all notional to me but the arrangement is an odd one. Watching the brass band festival and seeing a queue of Range Rovers and Mercs being held up (one of them containing a well known corrie actor) it's hard not to conclude Saddleworth is the Wilmslow of NW Manchester.
The place is still decked out with white roses on yorkshire day.

My usual food spots are the Take away, the cafe next door, the camp site M & C tent and the Civic hall!

The Wagon pub, I think it is, also has a good attendance too on Saturdays

Folk fest goers of course need food after the beer and hate normal dinner and tea time limits

Failing that a chew on my T shirt and a bag of peanuts

Tim - how can anyone stay away from Saddleworth that long? You'll have to come and see us at the festival - lot of changes but still beautiful, and nice people! We stay well away from any yuppies, us born-and-bred-here-folks!

Eh, and it's never moved! I was born in Saddleworth and it says West Riding of Yorkshire on my birth certificate! So that makes me a Yorkshire lass, doesn't it? And I'm still here!

Yes, it's the Moor and Coast tent on the campsite, Guest M & C - they also run the bar in the Civic hall, with real ale, including a Festival Ale. The Tory Club and Waggon are decent bars too.

Not long now is it? I'm just sorting out artists for 2009 to go in the programme. And I've just been asked to do some MCing at Cleckheaton in the Town Hall, which should be brill! Hi Sue - how are you and the kids?
