Weekend of 11th November rather full already, e.g Scotland get humped/stuffed by Australia at Murrayfield in the afternoon (I've got a ticket!), Scots Music Group/ALP singing weekend -BUT there's also a session in Linlithgow at the Wine Bar, High Street from 2.p.m.Sunday. Weekend of 18th - more oval balls/ Samoan style - but free to session in the evening, I think! Tattie B

Ian,

Max Tone (Rob)said the Leadburn session is on the Saturday night, which my calendar says is the 18th. So that make the plan 11th in St. Andrews for afternoon session, group meal, evening session and either crash at b&b or head home sober. 18th, evening session at Leadburn followed by crashing at Max Tone's and then a Sunday session?

I'll start a new thread with these dates sometime today, but I've got work to do now:-(

Scott???
As the originator of this thread, it seems right that you start a new thread.
Maybe something like... Scottish Mudcat Gathering 11th Nov.
It would display a date out at the main page, and save people going to the end of this one to get the actual meeting info. What do you think?
Just a thought.
Ian.

Hey! Both are fine to me, (and if any turn out to be a gig night for me, then I'll be able to make the other!).
RECAP:
11th November; Saturday afternoon/evening in St Andrews; informal meeting/session; venue to be arranged later. Crash at B&B or return home sober.
16th November; Friday evening session in Leadburn, hosted by Max Tone. Crash at his place or camp......brrrr.
OK?
I'm in Edinburgh for anyone needing lift from here or Lothian area (provided I've still got a car).
looking forward to seeing you all; this sounds like a good start for Mudcat/Caledonia.
Calach/Ian.

How about a meet in St. Andrews on the 11th, easy for Wavestar and her student buddies to get to AND a meeting at Leadburn with crash at Max Tone's on the 17th? If some or all can make both then all the better!

Calach an' a', Yeh, I'm up fer it. It's a way of life out here in the sticks! Are Wavestar and Tattie Bogle back from their travels by the 17-19th? How's that w/e for others? Even if we can't all make it to the first one, there's no reason why we can't slot a wee tour based round our own local fave sessions/pubs, through the winter/spring, (free/cheap crashes preferred)and we'd all meet each other eventually. We can discuss a more major event for next year when we meet, if we can be bothered. I mailed the Post-Llanstock thread (yeh, I know I must learn Blickies!)and they seem interested. Hell, they only got 18, with 10 times the population of Scotland, so we only need 1.8! Calach - you wanna chase up your BS Edin MC thread(s)from the summer and see if any are still in town/ refresh?

If the 11th doesn't suit Wavestar then St. Andrews seems like a bad choice of venue. I vote we go with the following weekend and take Max Tone up on his offer of crash space. I could pick those without cars up from Edinburgh on the way through.

Ack! I haven't been paying attention. I can try and get us a venue, but if I'm not mistaken, I'll be either is Spain or flying back from Spain on the 11th of November. Although I haven't bought my tickets yet, so hmm.. perhaps I could reschedule. In any case, it probably wouold be better to have someone else organising, in case something goes wrong in the last week, and I'm not around!

Max Tone, I live in a small student flat, so I won't have much crash space, but there are dozens of B&Bs in town for not that much. (between 15 and 25 quid).

Everyone is so enthusiastic!

My old buddy Gordon Menzies of Gaberlunzie might be able to help you with finding a venue . He and Robin have been all over the country for years performing. I dont suppose any of you lot would remember me? 10 years ago, I did a tour of Scotland, places such as the Glenfarg folk club, the Star in Glasgow, the Black Bitch in Linlithgow, and the Ullapool folk club?? Man, would I love to be there for your gathering..

Wavestar ---- Any crashing space in St Andrews + venue possible? I won't be able to get up until 8.30 or so, if at all, on the second Sat. Nov., as I'm only kid free alternate W/Es. I'd rather try to make a weekend of it, to make the travelling worthwhile for everybody and make sure we've got cheap crashes (convenient for the pub, or upstairs!) well sorted in advance. But if you want to make the first meet in St Andrews, 11/11 go for it & I'll try to get there. Scott ----Our last set of messages crossed in the post -nothing changes! I'll chip in my pitch as a possible base for a future weekend. 10 miles south of Edinburgh, wing of a 1702 Sir William Bruce mansion, wi' music friendly Laird next door! I can put up 4-6 in the house, if some make do with the floor, plus 3-5 in my camper (heatable!) + tent space for the hardy. Possible extra billeting with other musos on the farm, but there only seem to be about a dozen of us regulars. Possible dates -- 17,18,19 Nov (Leadburn session Sat), 1,2,3 Dec, 15,16,17 Dec (Leadburn), 12,13,14 Jan (local sess on the Fri) Comments, please -- I'm not trying to take over!

Hi all, Yeh, a few small meetings on a local level's fine by me. Leadburn this Sat, any of you Edinburghers? See details above. Phone me on 01968 676251 and I'll see if anybody else is coming out from town with transport, or get No 62 bus - crashing space available here at Auchindinny.

A suggestion for the FIFERS is the Millenium Song Weekend at House of Falkland this Fri/Sat/Sun (20-22/10). Concerts, Medieval stuff, singarounds, workshops, TMSA, seminars on song collections from Howard Glasser (USA based, but collects Scots stuff), and from Emily Lyle (School of Scottish Studies, talking about the Greig Duncan Coll). Don't know who's on the bill, but I'd expect to see Elspeth Cowie, Doris Rougvie, and the Auchtermuchty crowd in attendance. Details from 01337 858367, fax 858348, E-mail jo@wecan-feat.demon.co.uk Sounds good, but I'll be at Leadburn! Pass the word around. Ian/Scott -- I reckon Dunkeld's easier to get to than St Andrews, from almost anywhere in Scotland, apart from Fife! They don't generally put on stuff on Sat, I think, but the bar gets busy at night. They do have a good room upstairs, though, which we might get to use. Alternatively, basing ourselves at the hostel (see above) might be an idea - I doubt if they're busy, and I can vouch for the atmosphere in both places!

There are other music friendly Country House education centres with cheap (c. £15) B&B at Blairgowrie (Kindrogan Lodge, Kirkmichael), Biggar (Wiston Lodge, Wiston), Dalbeattie (Orchardton House, Auchencairn), for future reference. I'd suggest Edinburgh as the most central to us all, but accommodation's not easy.

Ian,

I share your concerns about the Taybank; it's only worth doing if we decide to do a whole weekend and manage to get the hostel that MaxTone mentioned. If we just want an afternoon and evening session then St.Andrews (assuming we can find a venue) would be better. Edinburgh would be good from a transport point of view and being central, but finding a good venue might be difficult (the Tass?). Anyone got a big enough house we could all crash at for a weekend, oh and with a good local pub we could use as a venue?

Hey guys, this is getting interesting!
Like the idea of a groundswell of interest in the first Caledonian Mudcatters Shindig, but thinking that we may get lost in the general swell of things at the Taybank Hotel. They've usually got somebody performing at weekends and that makes the session part and the accomodation part difficult and expensive. If you can't get a hostel nearby, the Hotels are £35.00 per night.
Also, the Taybank's geography may alienate the mudcatters from Campsie and Dumfries; surely there's something more central?
Also, just a thought; maybe we DONT need to be BIG on our first meeting, just a few little evenings to begin with, to get to know each other before planning an event, per sae. (maybe I'm just being stupit, but slap ma face if you think so!)
Ian, Edinburgh.

Scott,

Taybank details in my message, above. Speak to Gordon or Linda. There's a great hostel (£8 per night)about 5 miles away, sleeps 12, with piano and other instruments in the living room. Collection from the Taybank possible at chuckin' oot time. Hostel run by musicians Ian and Katy. No number to hand, but they'll have it at the pub. I can't make it to either, until the evening, but I'm sure we'll continue on the Sunday!

From the responses so far, how about the following plan:

Date: Saturday 11th of November ( so as not to clash with Scabby Doug's do) Venue: Wavestar, can you find us a venue in St. Andrews? Failing that, anyone got contact details for the Taybank Inn in Dunkeld? Format: meet after lunch (2pm?), session all afternoon, dine together at some hostelry, session till we drop/get chucked oot of the venue.

All other suggestions welcome.

As it turns out that was one of the quietest Sunday evening sessions known to man ( or wummin, come to that), but the crack was good...

Umm that weekend music thing in November will go ahead.. linked with a brewery beer promo, I believe..

There will be sessions over the Saturday and Sunday. Come on all you Eastcoasters - (and Westcoasters come to that...) 4th and 5th November.. all welcome, free admission. Kincaid House Hotel, Milton of Campsie, just up from Kirkintilloch...

Great idea! I'm Penicuik based, so any others in the Edinburgh area, please get in touch. Might make St Andrews once in a blue moon, if it becomes regular. Cookin' session this Saturday (21st) and 3rd Sat of month, in the Leadburn Inn, on A701, 15 miles south of Edinburgh, 8pm - camper vans welcome in car park, b&b £20 (haggleable for musos) 01968 672952. The Taybank in Dunkeld is also a must, if you're passing. Last time I passed, I didn't go in, and found out later that I'd missed a Monday afternoon sess with Dougie MacLean, Graham Mulholland, Pete Clark, Leo McCann, and John Morran! It would make an ideal meeting place - it's got a rail station, and £17.50 B&B. 01350 727340. If we can't arrange one place suitable for us all, how about we get together in smaller local groups to start with? There's a Public Meeting on the future of Traditional Arts in Edinburgh/Lothians in the Pleasance Cabaret Bar, Edinburgh on Mon 30th Oct, 6.30 pm. Come along and be vocal, and there's sure to be a sess, somewhere, after. Rob

Tomorrow (Sunday 15 Nov) evening from about 8:30 pm is the regular Sunday fortnightly session at the Kincaid House Hotel in Milton of Campsie. It's mostly a song-based session, but all instrumentalists also welcome. We have fiddlers, whistle players, bodhran players, mandolins, and a shed load of guitars.

If anyone wants to pop in, we'd be glad to see you...

It'd be great to have a Caledonian Mudcat event...

Murray,

I'll pass your regards on to Gifford. 'Big Dave'? Mr Spittal is it you mean? 'Fraid he's rarely seen in Dunfermline these days, but he is still active on the folk scene singing and playing with Kinrick, in a duo with John Blackwood and another duo with Sandra McCleland(?). Think there's also another group he plays with occasionally which includes Bruce Davies. Busy chap!

I'm surprised your name doesn't ring a bell with me as I've been a regular at Dunfermline Folk Club for about 8 years now. Mind you, my memory for names is appalling.

Ian,

Nope, that wasn't me. Could you be thinking of Gifford Lind from the Dunfermline folk club? He'd have been there as he was also Chairman of the New Makars Trust.

Tuesday evenings aren't good for me. I reckon a separate Catters meet would be better.

Scott

Scott. Yup I was right. I think we may have met briefly at a recording session in Elie, when they were getting the Fife Folk Songs on disc. (Me 6'3" bearded male with cheap Takamine guitar/we spoke about strings in USA/I sang a song about Darien, but it didn't make the album)
Anyway, there's a session on tuesday nights in St Andrews, Wavestar knows all about it, maybe we could take over that?
After further thought, maybe make it a private affair?
I'll watch this space.
Ian/Calach

Ian, Real name is Scott Davies, Jock Morris 'cause I'm Scottish and a Morris dancer! Usually to be found at Dunfermline folk club, but occasionally in the Castle Bar Cafe on a Friday evening (very possibly tomorrow night!)and at various festivals throughout Scotland. I play anglo concertina and sing, but not both at the same time. Photo is in the Mudcat resources if you have a strong stomach:-)

Seeing as Wavestar doesn't have a car, how about us meeting in St. Andrews somewhere? Got to be some bar there that wouldn't mind a bunch of folkies. Looking at my diary, first weekend in November looks good; that gives plenty of time to get something organised.

Scott
