Cats, Jon's rendition of The Last Fisherman was absoutly ****ing amazing, we must sort out a date to come down and do the photo thing. EPN, and MBS Lynne, working on your images tonight, I'll try to get them printed by the end of this week, if so they should be with you some time next week. Then a wedding the weekend after, and so to Murmansk........I think I need a break!

Just got back from Conference....

Thanks to Cllr for getting me to Bristol in time for my train. We hit a stag near Burlesdon and all had to get off the train, then catch two others and I didn't get to Brighton until the early hours of the morning, while all you lot were still singing your heads off!! Never mind, I did make it on to Radio 4 on Tuesday afternoon and evening, plus the Times, Independent, Guardian and Morning Star, so it was worth it!! I have a little something for us to share next time you are down... hurry before it all goes.

Thanks to Splott Man for saying kind things about our set on Saturday. I nearly stopped singing in the chorus of Lifeboat Prayer cos the harmonies were soooo good.

c/Ref the Alternative Folk Awards... now you know why Andy won a Lifetime Achievement Award for Miskin....YES!!!

Thanks to Andy and Jillie.big hugs.xxx

Hello!
Miskin is such a lovely start to the festval season, (just warm enough not to need a hot water bottle in the van). We had such a great time! I mentioned that I was doing this thing called podcasts, well, I did a podcast for Miskin. It's never going to recapture the feeling or the atmosphere, but I thought that you might want to have a listen, especially Andy might want to listen to the the third track that I chose...
Miskin Podcast

If you're not familiar with podcasting, it's just an mp3 file to listen to a bit like radio, you just need to download it.
If you're familiar with blogging and rss, it's basically an audio blog that you can rss.

I hope that's ok, I was a bit nervous about mentioning it here...
>looks bashful<

Thanks for a great weekend anyway!
:-))

Seems to have gone quiet!!!!

Right then if you've done with the thank yous. It's my go now.

THANK YOU, all of you - you have generated enthusiasm and interest in an incredible way. I can see no easy way of limiting tickets but long ago went down the path of limited publicity, and with the Miskin Mud Moggies on board, publicity went to the right people.
Special thanks of course to My Guru, for the idea the enthusiasm and the follow through to raise such a grand amount with the raffle. I know that the Rose Road Association were amazed at the response for a cause so far from Wales. But then most of those who come to Miskin are from a fair way away.
Although I am never going to run another one, plans are well started for next year, with guests booked and even ticket reservations already! This is the first chance I've had to write any sort of chat and today I am taking Eyelander away for a few days in Suffolk. On my return I shall attack the website and attempt some sort of report for those that missed it.
Tarra each,

Andy

Will there be a MC reunion at Sidmouth, I wonder?

Hi Dave,
Strokey folkies - I really do like that!
I was talking to Chris at Sunday's ceilidh about the important need to form an alternative stroke association which would cater for musicians, and you seem to have hit the nail on the head! The bar-cum-singing room was just too busy for me to have a good talk with you, but with three of us, mountains can be moved. Watch this space...

From: Mick Tems
Date: 31 Mar 05 - 07:49 AM

In reponse to Splott Man's message about the number of musicians at the ceilidh and Buttered Peas – I was playing a familiar Welsh tune of striking similarity called Pwt Ar Y Bys (A Vamp On The Fingers) which the Romany harpers would use for a warm-up exercise. Perhaps the story revolves around the age-old sessions, somewhere on the border between England and Wales, where English musicians would hear Welsh harpers playing this tune – and they would spread the tune across Cheshire, Lancashire or all other localities, each carrying a delightful mishearing of the name of the tune. (Mishearings and mistakes are all too common in tradition - (The New Scorpion Band researched a group of musicians in the Napoleonic Wars. The members had as their party piece a tune called The Downfall Of Pears, despite composer M. Becourt's naming of this piece The Downfall Of Paris.) I'm not claiming which came first, because both Welsh and English musicians had a habit of totally ignoring political boundaries. Just compare Pwt Ar Y Bys to Buttered Peas, and draw your own conclusions.

Next year, I should have my proper camera working again, and I will take the laptop so that I don't run out of memory card :-)

Great Festival Andy - I had a wonderful time - did more singing than I've done at any time since my stroke. The harmonies in the bar were magic - and I don't think it was just "Beer Hearing Aids".

Thanks to everyone for their encouragement and good wishes - and in return, hope that Mick Tems and all the other "Strokey Folkies" manage to progress further in their recoveries.

Perhaps Andy should apply for a grant from the NHS for the theraputic powers of the festival (especially Jude's cuddles), which have definitely made me feel much better.

Made it home to Felixstowe in only four hours, 'Mash' asleep in the back of the car most of the way - I think they'd enjoyed themselves !

Fantastic weekend, gets better every year. Too many highlights to mention them all but the Proud Dad moments and the singing in the Cottage were top of the list. Enjoyed meeting all the old and some new Catters.

Nearly froze in the tent Andy, can you arrange Easter to be a bit later next year please ...

Bugger! Back door again!

Next year, wouldn't it be easier to count the number of people there who AREN'T Mudcatters??

Having mentioned some of the things I did over the weekend, I forgot to say that one of my highlights was seeing Rosanna, Tom and Louise get the trophy. Andy is absolutely right in saying they are our future. They (and of course all the other kids too) make sure that there IS a future, not just for folk music, but for the whole folk ethos. They got the most applause I heard all weekend (and that's saying something!) and they were all so pleased, it nearly made me cry. It was a wonderful introduction to folk festivals for Louise.

Wow! What a magical weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you times a million.
And, yes, I am on e-mail Barbara. I gave it to Tom at the last Shammick.
Great to see that people enjoyed the Border stuff. I worked out that over 40 people danced, only 5 of whom were 'Borderers' and most had never morrissed before at all.
A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL THE MUSICIANS WHO PLAYED FOR US. You were magnificent - and we couldn't have done it without you.

'Herbaceous Border' hopes to dance at Upton (probably 6pm daily under the Bridge) and various other festivals during the year (as well as Sidmouth where it first began. I'll post details somewhere. And I'll sign onto mudcat properly soon. Don't want to be a guest for ever.
