Thanks guys, good to hear from you all. Snuffy, do you want to run a session?

Mando...?

What would you say if I said this is the last BCFW? Cos it might be. My life's taking a turn and I may not have enough mental energy to run it again. I will carry on with the folk club tho.

Hi Sal! Answer to your question, I think, is do what's best for you. On the other hand, you could try getting some help with the organising; maybe from people like Geoff and I who are not in BC, but are perfectly capable of making phone calls, doing publicity, arranging venues etc. Give us a shout if you think this is a way forward.

Yo Timbo, thanks, you're brilliant. Keep meaning to phone you, it's just that there aren't enough minutes in the day to do so.

We're having a story walk this year around BC which is being run by The Winged Word (local story spinners) it promises to be mysterious, scarey and exciting. And don't forget Mr.KD on the Friday night and Sunday afternoon.

Well my daughter has now become thoroughly addicted to folk festivals and events and is complaining that nothing goes on around here. She really enjoyed herself at our local Mayday celebrations on Monday and is asking when the next thing will be on, so we may have to come to BC for her sake if nothing else.

We intended to come last year but Shady had a dance exam on the Saturday so we didn't. I haven't looked at my diary yet but I'm hoping.....It sounds like our sort of festival.

Camping will be £12 if you write to me now (pm me) or go to last years web site for my phone no and address. On the gate it'll be £15.

The 3 Tuns has decided NOT to accept the music sessions so
THE KING'S HEAD have come up trumps. New tenants have arrived there and are very keen indeed. Loads of space and want the music. Thank God! Down side is that there won't be a ceilidh because we can't find a venue for that.

I'm so sorry that the 3 Tuns have decided this way, new tenants there also and haven't experienced the folk weekend so has no idea what he's going to be missing out on!!!

Not only is Shropshire a big county - it's the biggest landlocked county in England (I knew that book would come in useful someday). What better excuse can we think of for a shanty festival?

But seriously, folks, there is actually a stream runnig behing the Six Bells barn, AND a pond up at the Wintles - so what are we waiting for?

Haul away for Sally-o!

I've Been Working on the Railroad
Drill ye Tarriers, Drill
John Henry
The Wreck of the Old 97
The Ballad of Casey Jones ....

By coincidence I hope to be staying in BC on the night of Thursday 8th mainly as I thought I should try some other good beer on the way home to the Blue Anchor in Helston. I'm splashing out on a week's break, so can anyone suggest friendly pub or even hotel accommodation?
Great shame I'll miss the event.

Depends on your budget.

The Castle Hotel is v nice & has good beer and food. Then there's the Old Brick Guest House of which I know nothing.   And others, probably. Sally will know more......


There will be a campsite of course.
