There doesn't to be a thread on this festival yet - and it is coming up pretty soon at the end of August - so I thought I'd start one! It's my favourite North West festival - apart from Saddleworth of course! - and I'll be MCing over the weekend.

Good line up this year -

Uiscedwr. Bernard Wrigley(Thurs). Mad Agnes(USA). Bruce Mathiske(AUS). Keith Donnelly. Askew Sisters(BBC Folk Awards Finalists). Daimh (Scot). Strawhead. Flossie(Fra). 4Square. Isambarde. Tom Topping Band. Ruth Notman Trio(BBC Folk Awards Finalist). Alan Bell Band. Brian Preston Duo. Bryony. Gary & Vera Aspey. Cross O'Th'hands. Vicky Swan & Jonny Dyer. Edwina Hayes. Stanley Accrington. Scolds Bridle. Hughie Jones. Michael Kennedy (AUS). Capt. Cooper's Motley Crew. Derek Gifford. Pat Ryan. Andrew Green. Hard Times. Ian Gartside Band. Penny Black.

I will be singing at Fylde with Sedayne. Although not listed in the line-up above(I think it was done awhile back), Sedayne is booked to do storytelling and music, and rumoured to be MC-ing too.

I grew up with this festival, Fleetwood being my home town. It'll be odd this year to be part of it as an artist and not just as a spectator.

The line-up looks good - I'm particularly looking forward to seeing Debby McLatchy again.

See you all there,

Rachel

The weather is always a talking point at Fleetwood! The old food tent was killed off by it last year, I didn't even bother putting my tent up, I slept in my car and am bloomin' glad I did!
I hope to be coming, once again the delicately balanced finances are key to my attendance.

I am confident the weather will be good this year (riding for a fall?), Small problem tho we bought tickets ages ago, & now find my wife's NW side are dancing ( & i've been roped in to help(or hinder) the music, so i'll have to do some refund negotiation upon arrival. I'm hoping that there will be some good tune & songs sessions in the bar this year, seem's to have been lacking in recent years. Mind with Cross o'the Hands being there i might be lucky.

Weelittle drummer, I presume you mean the ferry to Larne in N.Ireland, yes you can take a car, in fact to travel on board you have to take a car. The Knott End ferry across the Wyre is just for 'people', though I believe you can take a bike!.

I love Fleetwood. Great big well set Victorian houses looking out to sae. A long flat front - so great if you're a wheelchair pusher! the concert hall is also disabled friendly.

When the weather is kind - the dancers have this fabulous greensward overlooking the sea. there are ferries and othe big boats sailing past.   great chip shops, and Chinese restaurants. A craft fair in a big separate sportshall - but with a great music shops as part of it and a Fylde guitar stall.

Loads of events you can drop in and out of. Always a great mix of guests and what must be some of the best local talent in the country.

If you can go and see the freeport shopping centre -its just a regular shopping mall, but set round a Marina - you can take a break from shopping drinking your coffee, looking out to sea.

theres always some yachts for sale and they do look a bargain - but so far I've never had to sail home.

Also try and squeeze in a visit to see local artist genius John ditchfield whose glass creations are always cropping up on bargain Hunt!

with historic Blackpool down the road - what more could you want?

WLD - can't remember it was up last year, but John Ditchfield now has a big glass sculpture outside his studio (on the corner by the big traffic light junction) which is lit up at night and changes colour in the most mesmerising way (- cue cars beeping their horns when the lights go green and you're just sat there watching it...) Be sure to drive past after dark to check it out.

Yes I love Fleetwood too, which is why, after being away for some considerable time, I've moved back this year. Not just for the great festival on my doorstep...

My performance times for Fylde are as follows:-
Saturday
11-12.30 am Milton Street Youth and Community Centre. I am conducting a seminar entitled Songs For Guitar. It wasn't quite what I thought I was doing but - fair enough! I'm not really too hung up about the guitar - if anyone wants to talk about songs and anything else - I'm cool with that. if nobody turns up - I'll talk to myself - songs, guitars, the meaning of life - an inner monologue!

Then I run across town to The Steamer, because I have to take part in the STEAMER MUSIC SESSION running from 12.00- 5pm. My old mate Pete skinner along withhis accomplice form Penny black will be there. its MC'd by Pete Rimmer - also featured is 4Square, Anna Shannon, Joe Topping., and Johnny Jump Up. sounds good!

7.30 that night sees me at The Boston Song Party at the NEW BOSTON HOTEL the Compere is Ali O'Brien. other guests are Strawhead, Viki Swan and Johnny Dyer, The Askew Sisters, and presumably top of the bill Jez Lowe and The Bad Pennies.

Positively you last chance to caych what i do is 10.30 Sunday morning whne I seem to be part of a coven called The songwriters - hosted by Matt Amour, also feauring Anna Shannon, Paul D. Wrigley, and Dave Walmsley.


its very unusual for me to be invited to appear at a folk festival and I am fully sensible of the honour being conferred by Alan Bell and his committee. I hope I don't disappoint.

Just this morning I got an advance review of the my John Dillinger album from Rock n Reel. It'll give a n idea of what to expect as will my website

Big Al Whittle

self-released (http://bigalwhittle.co.uk/)



Erudite and wry, Alan Whittle's been a folk circuit irregular and all-round song-writing chancer for more than a quarter of a century.



A great example of self employed survivalism, he once had a massive Euro hit with a football song, has a lyric in the Oxford Book of Villains, played at the Wembley Country Music Festival, and has had a song featured on The Pentagon website.



On this career-spanning 20-tracker, it's the breadth of his unassuming craftsmanship that's truly impressive. The gentle and tender 'Haiku Song' comes directly after the cruelly blunt murder ballad 'George Joseph Smith'. Tales of personal history such as 'Grammar School Puppy Dog' and 'Swimming Pool' stand alongside cod-Americana country toons ('The Telephone Song' and the unquestioning flag-saluting patriotism of 'There Is A Land Called America'). The mercilessly satirical "Well Done Liz!" is a world away from 'Trish', a self-deprecating song of spurned love set against a backdrop of the fall of Communism. On the latter, the distinctive drumming of Mick Bedford (Chumbawamba) perfectly complements Al's effortlessly artful guitaring



Firmly folk-rooted in blues and music hall rather than finger-in-yer-ear nasalism, Al casually slips from the Max Miller-ish blatant bawdiness of 'Big Red Sausage' to the masterly fingerpicked 'Tribute To Dink'. There are classy interpretations here too – of Roger Brooks' wonderful 'Apartment Song' and of two early blues songs, 'Winding Boy' (Jelly Roll Morton) and 'Pretty Boy' (Tony Jackson).



Oh, and Al's lyrics are great. My favourite: 'Well done Liz! You're the queen that's what you is; not just some arsehole, you've got a castle. Well done, Liz1'



Not just some Al bum, you've got an album. Well done, Al!

The Marine Hall may be the official HQ for Fylde, but the Steamer always seems to be the hub of things for us.

There's constantly great stuff going on there, and being part of the 'Fringe' it pulls in a lot of locals and passers by who otherwise wouldn't be involved with the festival. Alan Bell is to be commended for continuing to put on great acts at the non-paying venues and allowing those unable to commit to weekend tickets (for whatever reason) to really get a lot out of the festival.

We're all over the place this year, but you can bet when there's 'downtime' you'll find us in the Steamer.
