Take no notice of pip radish noreen there's loads of singing all over the place.

All I can say is what I saw last year: one humungous singaround at the Con Club (which was good but too big), after which I wandered around Uppermill looking for somewhere to sing & not finding much. Later in the day I found my way to the Waggon and sat in on a small singaround there, but it was a jumping-in session and it was all guitars and everyone else seemed to know each other... mutter mumble whinge whine...

But if you hook up with someone who (a) knows their way around and (b) knows you (quite important), I should think you'll have a great time.

Anyone going to the thing next weekend? It's a mumble organised by mumble, and it's at a pub called mumble in the Yorkshire Dales. (It was late and I was tired.)

Seriously, the definite information I've managed to retain is:

something with folk music involved
free to get in
weekend of 24th-25th July
pub
Yorkshire Dales

Can anyone fill in the blanks (or the mumbles)?

Just come back (Sunday Afternoon)from an excellent weekend.Singarounds were as usual real quality. some of the new events (unsheduled), like the persiphone wet garland dress workshop were phoarr amazing there were some 'outstanding' entrants. Thanks to the partipants of 'The War of the Roses' the Lanky's won this year despite a sterling performance from the Tykes. many attempts were made to bribe the MC but they failed although request to Linda (from Hissyfit) more shortbread please. Barry & Ingrid Tyneside slot was really good too. Hope the Festival continues next year.

MC Fat did an excellent job at keeping both sides in check this year.

However, the 'worldly wise' and 'trench battle experience' of Sid, Scowie and Stan with The Hometowners adding their a 'subtle' calming influence here and there, thoroughly overwhelmed the Yorky's.....I'm glad to say.
Loved it when Scowie had a dig at Ray for drinking water out of a beer glass and Sid commented that he thought it was Yorkshire beer.
Great stuff.
It was broadsides like that, that brought the cup back home to Lancs.
Not even Hissyfit's class, nor David Swans songs were enough for the Yorky's this time.

Just got back today after another fab Saddleworth festival. Many thanks to the committee and all. Great music from older hands and again as always at Saddleworth, some fabulous young talent like Twelfth Day; great combination and sound from Catriona's fiddle and Esther Swift playing a wonderful harp - instrument normally seen in a sympnony orcestra.

Sat night with Dougie Maclean was brilliant! Hometowners & Tony Downes were fab as ever - glad to see Pete 'sheep crook' MacMillan recovering well after op; Hissyfit, harmoniously brillient as ever and loads more. Still the rain but not as many puddles on the puddleworth campsite this year - my tent endured.

Wars of Roses? well as Orson says, some great broadsides but Ackrington allstars just tipped the balance methinks (or was it that wad of notes in Stan's hands?)

So let's hope and look fwd to a 14th (my 13th) be terrible if this geat annual get-together didn't continue - mebbe a few more fund-raising evets b4 then ?

Thanks for those comments, my friends from the White Rose County were gratious in their acceptance of what was in my eyes a very narrow defeat, that being so I took the liberty of taking a photo of Ammon Wrigleys statue in Uppermill, wearing my winning hat with the red roses on it. He smiled and winked! I doubt he does that when they garland him with white roses on Yorkshire day, he having written a book called "Lancashire Idylls"
Here My friends I must mention my retirement from the annual contest, there are many would represent the Red Rose, and I feel I should not monopolise a place. Nice to end on a winning note though, Yorkshire have a fine and very able son in Ray Padgett, who can conduct himself with the utmost dignity after his teams display, no Captain could have done better.
Thank you Yorkshire.....over and out!

The venues are fab, I did hear that a judge had been nobbled at the Roses war--- he was advised that to avoid trouble it was worked that turns were taken to win each year and that it was the Lankies turn this year!!!   A great array of artists and the survivors sess was fantastic.By the way Captain isn't it one pint per poem per person!!

Brill, wonderful, memorable, Huggable and going to stay in my mind for a long, long while. Ewan McLennans' guitar work is exquisite, The Hometowners Friday set was great and Dougie was unbeatable - harmony heaven! David Swann was outstanding later in the civic - action songs and choruses to enjoy! Thanks to everyone involved, Sound man and Orson ... you make the Civic the best balanced venue we know. Jan and Pete put in endless hours on the festival preparation and had to deal with some major trouble with thefts on the campsite. Sad fact of life ... and I know questions are being asked!! We enjoyed out unrehearsed sets with Dave Howden and GU4 and harmonising with Mr Swann and 'the Master', Dougie..... and hearing Noreen again, I'm still buzzing . Home safe and with tents dry and stowed away. Wow, I'm Knackered... and rambling on and in danger of repeating myself so Goodnight. Hugs to all. Hazel.

Had some great singarounds..but will particularly remember the great singing at the maritime session ..from guests and from the floor. Gu4 were brill as ever and Hissies managed to make me cry again....and the last song from Gissyfit4 was something else!
