This years Festival is still in the planning but we have a list of musicians already booked so express an interest if you will ( or not as the case may be ). Also we (The Committee) would welcome any suggestions for improving the overall set up!
Already booked are 'Vinegar Butt' ,' Jezlo and the half-pennies', 'Baron Ardwrigley' and the Frenchman 'Bossy Mal-Aviel' This years event promises to be bigger than ever but even more will be welcome.

It's all very well holding a Air Bodhran championship year after but surely the much more sophisticated art of Air Spoons should be recognised? Now if this were to be introduced, I would be there in the front row with my encouraging hecking of the likes of

"Souper"

"You've got it to a T (spoon)"

"He's been the best from the ladle to the grave"

"Rubbish! He should be given the wooden spoon."

"Great! Give it that old EPNS."

... and so on until I was arrested by the Bad Joke Police.

Banjo Players with Teeth was well attended last year but with no performers it really didn't go over well.

I do think we have to re-visit the single ladies accommodations. Some of the male attendees took it to be a House of Ill Repute. And some of the ladies (?????) accomodated them. I recommend two tents - Single Sluts and Singles who Sleep this year with separate rest rooms, heated water if possible.

The new indoor sleeping facility is now up and running or at least the water is... there is a leak in the shower room and the whole area is flooded. We are confident this can be fixed by Festival time. With regard to single ladies accommodations mentioned... there is no segregation this year so you sleep where your sleeping bag is..... To the men... you have surely heard the expression 'Let sleeping bags lie".....

That is a distinct possibility although the efforts to televise last year were unsuccessful because of the thick fog that enveloped the Festival site. (Some suggested we ban smoking this year!)

I was at that festival last year but did not opt to go to the Sex Ceilidh. Instead, at that time I was one of the four people listening to the talk, A History of the Blitherscrum Festival from 1998 to 1999 given by Tall Ken Bow-Licks.

However, I did hear lots of people afrerwards talking about the incident that Owen refers to but most of them seemed to be complaining that the man was not keeping time with the tune that the band were playing at the time - Donkey Riding.

Of course, what I heard might be just a lot of Cock & Bull stories.

Is it true that Blitherscrum's going electric this year? I heard that Bobbysocks Zimmerframe, the grand old man of protest songs, is bringing his new amplified band and they're going to upstage all the aging rockers, like they're a bunch of rolling stones or something.

If so, and remembering the difficulty encountered with trying to get the lights to work last year, he'd be well advised to bring his own electrician.

Speaking of air alphorns; if you are looking for some acts that are a bit different, I play in an air alphorn trio, which is a sight to behold, I might tell you. Mind you, you wouldn't want to believe anything I might tell you. I can also put you in touch with an air kazoo band, but the pet cows wouldn't like that much either.
Actually, I've just dug out an old photie of me playing the didgeridoo while juggling two used tea bags with one hand, but since the tea bags are quite hard to spot, the photie could be open to some misconstruction, so is not for publication.

Good News about the Blitherscrum Air Guitar Championships!!!

Entrants will not need to bring their own guitars this year. I will be supplying racks of air guitars - enough for all competitors. Just look for my racks of guitars which look like this. They will be lined up outside the marquee. No need to book in advance, just pick on up on your way in. There will be enough for all!

I hope the government doesn't find out you've giving away free air. They'll tax the stuff.

Bearing in mind the news that the farting of dinosaurs may have caused their extinction, can the staff in the food tent please make sure they don't sell too many baked beans this year?

And it would be a good idea if the bar staff decided not to stock any of that 17.9% Living Dead, which leant such a pungent atmosphere to previous festivals.
