Count me and my daughter and TheSilentOne and his daughter and her partner in, there both days, but the young folks may do some wondering around Rochester High street Saturday afternoon before they join us.

CrowSister and her Dad might be there as well.

Will there be Saturday evening session as well? It was a bit thin last year.

"..but the young folks may do some wondering around Rochester High street Saturday afternoon before they join us."


"When she was half a dozen years younger, Louisa had been overheard to begin a conversation with her brother one day, by saying 'Tom, I wonder' -- upon which Mr. Gradgrind, who was the person overhearing, stepped forth into the light and said, 'Louisa, never wonder!'

Herein lay the spring of the mechanical art and mystery of educating the reason without stooping to the cultivation of the sentiments and affections. Never wonder. By means of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, settle everything somehow, and never wonder. Bring to me, says M'Choakumchild, yonder baby just able to walk, and I will engage that it shall never wonder."

From "Hard Times" by Charles Dickens (former resident of Rochester!)

I wrote two critical essays on Hard Times. One of them titled Utilitarian Time bomb. That was a long time ago in a land far away.

Of course I meant the young folk would go wandering.

Thank FUK it is nearly Friday. Pray and give thanks to the mighty and beneficent FUK, who brings us weekends in his own fukking time.

"Please define 'shush you at the GI'"

At the GI I shall mingle with the crowd, remaining incognito, keeping a safe distance from Pierre, yet being close enough to both watch any movement of his lips and hear any sound that emanates from his mouth.

I shall then lie in wait until, during a song, Pierre makes an utterance. At this point I shall bound forward and say "Shhhhh" in a very condescending manner and thereby admonish him.

Well, you did ask!

Yes Terry, Do come along! Has anyone told Richard Bridge? I understand he is giving Mudcat a break for a bit, so may not remember this event.

Certainly hope Don_WYSIWYG_T and Clive can make it. Someone contact Paul from Sheppey and who was that Jo (woman trad singer) from Sheppey last year? She was very good. Dilligafxx and KevtheClogs needed also and Essex Girl.

I am going to ask again about Saturday evening. Last year there were not many in attendance in the evening. How many plan to return after dinner for more singing and playing?

Also, last year Wolf's Head Vixen was meant to dance, but their numbers were decimated by seasonal flu. Will they be there this year? There was one young 'un from WHV who had just learned to play guitar and she was scarily good.

Mr Bridge taking a break from Mudcat ?
I was wondering where he was.
It had passed my mind that he may have been struck down by some affliction?
Clearly not which is good.
I think some one should write a suushing song so everyone can suuuush untill there hearts are content and get the suuuuuush out there system before the real music starts looking forward to this event very much and to seeing folk I have not seen in ages,
Kind regards Pierre,

I shall be splitting my attention this year.

Saturday at the GI, of course, for as long as possible (subject to getting my transport working), then Sunday EVENING at Penny's session at the Walnut Tree, Tonbridge Road, Maidstone (because I promised).

If transport (and my chauffeur wife) permits, I might make Sunday Arvo at the GI, but I can't promise.

As to bringing Clive, that too depends on my currently U/S Ford Scorpio, unless of course some kind person would be prepared to offer........?

Wendy, I am trying to find out the same re after dinner hours. Growler said he'd get back to me on that.

Last year, there was no organizer on Sat evening, but there we a few people singing away until 10 or so. It was still good. Cozy is what it was.

There is a very nice B&B within staggering distance, the Greystones, where we will be staying Saturday night. Just in case you want to attend the Sunday session as well, but not drive back Saturday night.
