Anybody got any idea of what time it kicks off, if there is a p.a., photocall or anything else that might be of interest - when do we have to get there? A nearby cafe or pub where we can get a sandwich and cuppa after the drive - prior to the show?

Very best wishes to other mudcatters involved - Georgian Silver and Sooz. Lets hope its a really nice fun evening.

Its all new stuff to me. i just hope we all have a great time. New experience for me - I've been thinking - I really can't recollect singing in a theatre before. I've always sung in pubs, clubs. once on television - I mimed. once I also mimed in front of an audience when they played my record on radio luxemburg, and once I sang at wembley conference centre.   a few times on paul mackenzie's show on radio derby.   one time I sang for paul from the knickers counter in marks and spencer in buxton, but never a theatre before. Fun!

could be a new thread there - weird places wot you have sung.

Thanks Mike. Sooz said you would be quick to post. As you said I didn't feel I was working with the strongest of material, but I did my best. it was an honour to have been selected as a finalist, and I wanted to make as good a job of it as I could.

having said that I was surprised to win as the standard of musicianship was very high. To be honest I got a bit depressed, every time I poked my head out of the bar, there was somebody else sounding brilliant on stage.

I thought it was nice that the guy who won the best song category was talking about Lincolnshire people in the present when so many of us were talking about the past. In a way that's how folksong should be. The songs of the industrial revolution and Woody Guthrie's many causes - many have been long forgotten, but they were red hot at the time. and the audience's gleeful recognition of the song about the councillor - I had never heard of, told its own story.

I know you must feel a little disappointed, but if your work is attracting the attention of musicians of the calibre of Sooz and her husband, I feel sure the breakthrough and recognition that you are waiting for will not be too long in coming.

all the very best and thanks to mudcat for telling me about this interesting competition.

What a night!
Well done Al!
The winning song was by Paul Dickinson and told the story of County Councillor Jim Speechleys demise and imprisonment for being a really naughty boy. Not sure if they will be able to broadcast it though, especially if he wins his appeal!
You are right, Al - nice to see a topical song win (and a funny one)
Hope you aren't too diappointed, Mike - we'll give yours another blast at the Festival Folk Club tonight!

Well, while you were making your late-night postings, I was still on the road, but I made it home eventually (about 3.30). Apart from the driving it was a great night, so many good songs and performers - well done everyone - and such a friendly bunch of people. Sorry I couldn't stay around for a post-show chat, but it seemed like I should get going...

Hope the festival goes well this weekend, I'll have to get up that way again some time and see a bit more of the Lincolnshire music scene, which certainly seems to be thriving.

All the best,
Mark.

theres nothing rational about attacks of nerves - they come unbidden, and often unexpectedly.

i think its just a nice thing to be invited like this. try and enjoy it.

Apparently Eric Bogle entered The Band Played Waltzing Matilda for a song competition one time early in his career - and came second.

Look at it this way Mike, what are we two going to do if they boo our songs off the stage and shout rubbish! Get off!

Give up song writing.....? I don't think so.

That depends on the song, what you know about it, and what you are prepared to tell the people you want to help you.

Does it have anything to do with this year's Lincolnshire competition? If it does, then you are in the right place.

If it doesn't, then you aren't. Please use the onsite search engine ("Lyrics and Knowledge Search"; it's at the top of every page here) to look for a phrase from the lyric as you remember it; don't forget to try alternative spellings and/or phrasings.

If you draw a complete blank, start a new thread to ask your question. Be sure to include as much information as you can, so that people can help you most effectively.

Now, can we return to the competition, please? It really would be useful to know what happened and to whom, without having to struggle with all these confusing pseudonyms.

The day we went drinking at the show -song about getting pissed at an agricultural event won - sort hey up, didn't we sup some sort of thing.

Inbred and proud won the performance trophy...quite a witty take on kissing cousins in Lincolnshire villages. very deftly executed. It reminded me of a teaching practice i did back in 60's in a Linconshire village9which will remain unnamed). the history lecturer at college had told us to ask us to show the kids the schools log from the last century - to show them the history of their own environment. the headmaster said no bloody way - apparently all the village was screwing each other at that point, and EVERYBODY was related to each other.

My song got nowhere but you can hear it if you log onto my site. I'm really proud of it and I've got it playing immediately you log on!

What an interesting experience to be in the audience for a change (my song didn't get to the final). Mike and I missed the warmth and cameraderie we have experienced back stage as competitors and I empathised with the drooping shoulders and general knackeredness of the judges!
The winning song had a suggestion of Keith Marsden about it. The competition began after he died, but he would probably have written a song along these lines had he been around. I thought it was the right choice although we were rooting for Mike and Jane all the way.
Work is an extra pain after such a late night..........will try to perk up in time for Market Rasen Folk Club tonight.

felt that there should have been a bit of encouragement for the youngsters. you couldn't argue with the decision - and yet I tend to think there should be brownie points for kids for not being soccer hooligans - well for taking a night off being one!

further thought
what the judges should have done is make up a best newcomers prize on the spot. you see what the kids wanted was a bit of kudos, abit of something to put on their website - and what would it have cost anybody?

as it is they might go away and say, oh we tried that and it was a bit of a closed shop - all old stuff. and if they say that to their fellow young musicians, it might dissuade other young people from having a go, and that would be a pity.

Al - our remit was to choose what we thought were the top 3. Anything else would have to be agreed up front.
However, it is worth putting forward for next year.

There is a young musicians competition for Lincolnshire, and that is the competition they should enter.

I hope I'm right in thinking that I'm one of the 'kids' (Doonvarna).

Thursday was the third time in four years we've been in the final! We didn't get in last year. The first time we entered (2002) we were actually placed third! When the competition comes around, we stick to our beliefs about writing folk songs and stick to our own folk-rock style. If we get into the finals we're delighted (and a little surprised)! We never go into the finals expecting anything other than to enjoy ourselves playing music as our style is so different to anything else on the night and probably that is entered. You're right though, it does give us something to put on our website! (www.doonvarna.co.uk - midway through overhaul at present)

If you're interested check out the website for our four entries to date: 2002 Slash Hollow, 2003 Tom Otter, 2004 Splintered Wood and Iron (non-finalist) and 2005 Guymer's Warning.

Thanks for all the kind comments, especially the 'kids' reference!

Doonvarna, thoroughly enjoyed your performance both the warm up and the song entered, as you so rightly say 'stick to our beliefs' it should only ever be that way otherwise it's pandering to others. All the finalists deserved to be there and the diversity of style and content was great. If they had all been of the same ilk there would have been no point in the competition at all. Excellent performance many thanks for a great evening to all the artists!!!

Doonvarna...you did get a mention and thoroughly deserved. Your Folk/Rock style impressed me and so did that gorgeous flautist you have playing with you. My entry came second and I'm still not sure if your entry was better than mine........At the end of the day it is up to the judges to decide and they have a difficult job! Your work is good so keep it up and see you next year. Best wishes, Mike.
Author of "Ross Trawlers return" which came second to a deserving first.
