I'm off to Whitby on October 26th for the Captain Cook Festival with the Shellbacks. Never been to this one before. Does anyone know what it's like? Are there any other Mudcatters going? Where are the best places to go?

The best part of Whitby is discovering the place yourself. The old side (east) is a delightful place to wander with lots of pubs and shops (Black Horse is one of the best). The other side has typical small seaside attractions and some nice pubs including the Elsinore , The Angel , Plough and what used to be the Cutty Sark but is now (alas) renamed the Tap and Spile.

Best Fish and Chips in the UK can be had from the Magpie Cafe (IMHO).

Hope you enjoy it...we will be there Nov 2nd and 3rd for the Goth Festival (Dracula is linked to Whitby).

Not just your opinion Spot, I think Rick Stein also said it. If you can be bothered to queue go to the Magpie Cafe it is amazing. I have been going to the Shanty Weekend for several years. There will be several Mudcatters hold up in a secret location on the weekend of 27th October and taking part in the singarounds, usually in the Pier, Endeavour and Plough pubs. I've always enjoyed it immensely, and usually Michael from Swansea is around with Baggyrinkle. On Sunday the normal folk club in the Tap & Spile is most enjoyable and hopefully Mandomad and Jingle will be there. Aardvark and his missus will definitely be around and let's face it Tyke is always there! Just a few Mudcat names you are likely to come across together with several others including myself.

When sobered up the lads told me what a great weekend I had so I've been going ever since! The truth is the Captain Cook Festival will be what you make it! Please do not worry if you over indulge in Whitby's many great Pub once home and sober you will be able to read about what a great weekend you had even if you can't remember. Like wise if you don't go/can't go you will be able to read about what a great weekend you have missed!

Coblers Monday Whitby's Shanty Group are again booked for the Shanty Festival on the Whitby Weekend which is the weekend after the Music Port Festival This Weekend (It's half term take the week off and stay for both!) Meanwhile, If you want to take a fun Look at Coblers Monday NEW Website you can find us on The Mudcats links page or the address is:- http://uk.geocities.com/aaardvark001. Hope you enjoy your visit to our latest web pages we have Photo of Whitby and The Grand Turk information on the Whitby Folk Club and other links. Our intention is to expand the site in the near future (once we have sobered up from the Captain Cook Weekend) To include lots of exiting things including a Mick Haywood's Song collection and Plenty of Sea Shanties. Hope to see you all in Whitby Cheers from tyke (George Clarke)

Don't be embarrassed Noreen ... I'm sure that Richard Grainger would be the first to admit that "efficient" and "organised" are words that, to him, are somewhat unfamiliar ....

As Whitby is such a lovely place I,m sure peolpe will enjoy themselves anyway.

I do like Whitby, oh yes. Michael will be there but as Madam G said the Baggies will not. I've heard that Zorro isn't paying anyone this year, everyone's doing it for nothing, isn't that nice?
Looking forward to a tidy weekend finishing off with Sunday in the Tap, splendid evening.

See you soon

Help we havn't seen or hear anything from Brian Barker since he was seen holding hands with The Lady Mayoress who was P***ed in the Endevour on Friday Night. We Know they left the Endevour together at the end of the evening (the bar was still open at this point!). Aaardvark and myself speculated that Denies (the Mayoress) may have chained him to her bed with the Maroral Chain of Office! When she appeared in the Endevour on Sunday Afternoon we confronted her. Deneis says that she has not seen him since! Should we belive her? It is the Goth weekend next week in Whitby!

Shellbacks and friends singing in the bandstand to passers-by and gathering an audience all the way up the steps to the West Cliff! And The Sloop John B gets more complex every time we do it...

Lovely to meet up with friends old and new. You shall be a Shellback, Mrs Duck! (A shellbacked duck??) And Chanteyranger who travelled from San Francisco to do a guest spot with the Shellbacks :0) Good to meet you Peter, you'll be welcome back anytime. Can we see some of the photos please?

Another delight, which made me take notice, was Linda and Noreen's duetting - WOW!!!! not much else I can say. It was a good Juliana, enjoyed that, and of course Maggies Hawaiian dirty talk.

Snuffy,

We're booked for Lancaster and the festival is listed in the bumph we continually get from Lancaster City Council or whatever to advertise the events going on there.

Whitby was fantasic and I have to agree with Noreen, singing shanties on the deck of the old lifeboat as we 'ploughed the raging seas' was a fantastic experience! Plus, raises the amouth we did for the lifeboats was quiet an achievement in it' self :-) Although I hope we didn't all scare chanteyranger off....

It was a great weekend, and amazing finding out who all the Mudcatters are...I only knew you by your Mudcat names before. Singing on the old lifeboat was fantastic, but so was singing on the bandstand with people able to listen to us from the cliff....oh the power!!! Thanks to all of you for making it a fantastic weekend - roll on the next one (and we're definitely staying in the Endeavour again Noreen, I can recommend it!!) If anyone does want to join the Shellbacks let me know, as I've already got a few names to pass on to Mein Fuhrer (Derek).

I'm home now, jet-lagged and festival-lagged, with a suitcase full of new CDs and Frank Meadow Sutcliffe books and prints. What a great weekend in Whitby. I was in danger of losing my return ticket. Cookfest began the week before in Middlesbrough, then on to Marske and Staithes before Whitby. I was singing all that week with Richard Grainger and his group, The Stormy Weather Boys. Richard and Ian McNichol organized the fest so that it reached out into the communities. We sang in the church at Marske, in Cleveland hospital for patients and on the hospital's radio station, in a recreation hall, aboard the Endeavor at the Stockton quay, and at the Sunday night folk club at Dr. Brown's. Whitby was the perfect culmination of the fest. What a magical place. It was great finally meeting several 'Catters and connecting the people to they're names. A great bunch to meet up with, and I was only sorry there wasn't more time on my trip to talk with you more. Got to hear Noreen's rendition of Lowlands Away, which was soulful and moving. It was a pleasure getting adopted (or abducted) by the Shellbacks at Whitby, singing with them in the lifeboat and in the Pier Inn. Great meeting Ickle Dorritt and Michael in Swansea as well. So, Ickle, I didn't drink half as much as I should? Are you kidding? I drank enough water to fill an aquarium! :-)

Rest assured the Magpie is still serving up great fish and chips!
I was there the other day and felt obliged to check it out on your behalf despite being on a diet.
The things I do for Mudcat! :~)

I now know that the Shellbacks are meeting up Saturday morning around 11a.m. to have a practice at the Pavilion - that place at the top of the hill!! So I'll see you all there, if I don't see you in the Endeavour Friday evening. Roll on the Jamiesons!!

Have a great time at Cookfest! Agreed that the Magpie's seafood is fantastic. For vegetarians looking for meals in Whitby, the Magpie Cafe also has a vegetarian shepherd's pie that is worth the wait.Here's some advice on when to go to the Magpie to avoid the long lines: When it's closed.:-).

Say hello to the Shellbacks from me. Wish I could be there, but too much going on here.

Best,

Chanteyranger

Tyke here I can tell you that Coblers Monday will be in the Endevour for most of the weekend. Mick Haywood usualy kicks off the Captain Cook Festival at the Whitby Folk Club on Wednesday Night at the Plough Inn Baxtergate.

Coblers Monday Picked up some posters and Hand Bills on Friday after we had performed in Middlesbough at Doctor Browns. The info had only just been printed that day. "No Comment!"
Normer Waterson, Deric and Dorathy Elliot, Chris Parkinson, are on the programe.

I havent got the full details as the programe that I put in my Guitar case I gave to someone at the Music Port Festival in Whitby last weekend! I intended to pick up another but I was distracted by the beer in the Tap N Spile on the Sunday Night. Others in Whitby have details as we did deliver leaflet's to First the Endevour on Church Street, Then the Captain Cook Museum ( Mick Green of Coblers Monday is the man to speak to there ) The Tourest Information Office in Whitby, Dorathy Elliot was putting up posters all over the place on Sunday Night. Should all else fail try the Coblers Monday Website via the Mudacat links page or http://uk.geocities.com/aaardvark001/. That will give you the email address for Coblers Monday where Mick Haywood who along with Angi his wife runn the Whitby Folk Club.

OH AND THIS YEAR INSTEAD OF OR AS WELL AS YOU CAN HAVE A RIDE OUT ON THE MINI ENDEVOUR. WEATHER PERMITTING WHERE YOU CAN SINGALONG TO THE COBLERS MONDAY CD Whitby Cured. Looking forward to seeing you all at the Captain Cook. Mine is a pint of Broadside Cheers George Clarke

Oh no Alio!Please don't tell me we have to march up and over all weekend to that place where nobody goes, I don't know if my legs will stand it!
We hope to see you Friday in the Endeavor but I don't know what time. Mum is in hospital in Hull at the moment, she may come out Friday and if she needs us we might not get there until Saturday. But we both have Friday and Monday off work, are you staying Sunday night?

I know what you mean Ali - I hate the thought of walking up there twice on Saturday too! I'll just have to take extra fortification with the Jamiesons!

No, we're staying Friday and Saturday nights, as we're both in work Monday, unfortunately. Think Bill and Theresa are doing the same, but not sure. They came over on Saturday to help us bid farewell to the stewards at the Con. Club, as did Noreen and Alan. There was some lovely singing.

Hope your mum goes on OK - see you in the Endeavour.

Well we had a great time, as we always do, and so did the 3 people who bought tickets. I think I recognised a few faces on the fringe, Les & Maggie... where was Linda?
Especially enjoyed the Sunday Night Folk Club at the Tap & Spile, hope to see you next year. Shellbacks will be in America so we will just be able to enjoy the pubs without the hiking over to the Spa!
