Hello! September 13th-15th will be the fifth year of the Donisthorpe Music Weekend near Ashby de la Zouch in Leicestershire. It's a free festival...no charge and no guests! (Though this year we do have a ceilidh on the Friday evening with Brassneck) There's also free camping. It will be held this time for the first time at Donisthorpe Miners' Welfare club. Anyone who wants to sing, play (or dance on Friday evening) or just listen is welcome. For further information ring 01530 272835.

Sorry, hit the wrong thing! Brassneck is the band in which my husband plays. They only play fairly locally and occasionally, which is why you won't have heard of them. They consist of a guitarist, a bassist, a fiddler, an accordionist (or keyboard,) a drummer and a mandolin p[layer who also plays guitar and French horn. They are a ceilidh band, but also do non-ceilidh stuff sometimes.

Thats Ok then.. I'm in a local (to you) ceilidh band too and we sometimes call ourselves by that name. You had me worried then ... as 2 of the band are in Ireland this weekend and we knew nothing about it... !! Maybe we won't use that name again if its already being used locally.

We've been going out in the Midlands as Brassneck for about three years now! Come along on Friday night and we'll talk over a pint (well, alright, maybe more than one!)

Look forward to seeing you. We start on Saturday at 11.00 and go on until 2.00, when we have half an hour break, 2.30 till 5.00, then start the evening at 8.00 until whenever. The Sunday survivor session is around lunchtime. It looks as though the weather may be good, in which case we will probably do a lot of it outside. I'm looking forward to it!

Thank you Lynne and Ted for the weekend, the accommodation, the craic and some very nice singing. Thank you Mr Happy for the revelation that "Happiness" can be sung to the tune of Ellen Vannen, and vice versa..... I will PM you the words of Helen Akitt's "Granddad goes dancing on Mayday."

Kitty

Thanks guys! I feel all warm and fluffy inside after reading your last two messages! I really enjoyed it too, though I was worried in case other people didn't. Someone else has told me it was the best yet. Let's hope we can build on it and get it even better next year, when we will be in the brand new building.

Lynne

An added bonus was getting the re-recorded tape of Steve Thomason's songs, including the 6 he's written since he recorded the original 10 last year. I sang "The Sound of Union" at Herga this evening, and have given a copy of the tape to Johnny Collins.

I'd like a copy of that too. Does he have any CDs or tapes for sale? He's a brilliant songwriter with a fantastic voice.

Lynne

He won't record commercially - and he re-recorded the songs at home a couple of weekends ago on a tape recorder borrowed from school because he lost the master tape he recorded last year! He says the tape is for learning songs from, not for listening to... I'll see if he or me can get a tape to you too.

Thanks Kitty. I would love to hear a proper CD of him singing his songs, but if it's just a case of learning his songs, that's fine. There are some really good ones.
