Subject: Warwick Folk Festival 21st-23rd July 06
From: GUEST,Mikk
Date: 13 Jul 06 - 09:32 AM

Well it's only a week to go before this years Warwick FF. I am really looking forward to it. I was unable to attend last year as I was in Ireland. I went for the first time in 2004 and thought it was wonderful. The camping facilities are excellent, sessions and concerts on the site plus sessions and so much more going on in the town as well. I seem to remember spending quite a bit of time in The Zetland Arms last time.
This year I am really looking forward to seeing the Battlefield Band on Friday & my long time favourite Dougie MaClean on Sunday. In-between I will be propping up Granny West's wine stall & attending as many sessions as I can get to.

I know there was a thread about Concertina's at Warwick a while ago but thought I'd open it up a little.

Anyone else going?

Come and say hello. (And buy a book or two).

I would have been there with Moor & Coast but I'm actually an artist this year, how exciting!
I have 3 spots, one of which is a "Meet the Artist" session at 11am in the Arts Centre if anyone fancies hauling themselves out of bed to give some moral support! (11am, it obscene if you ask me!!!)

We are the official providers of Mudcat name badges. They cost 50p and Mudcat gets a cut from them.

The easiest way to get them is to send 50p (per badge!), your Mudcat name AS IT IS WRITTEN and a SAE to
The Badger
7 Quarry Road
Norton
Doncaster
DN6 9HS

Then you wait until I can get him motivated to make them!

We will be at Whitby all week so could bring pre-ordered ones to there - PM me about it.

Alan regarding the big squeeze, concertina thingy?

Can you advise what format you will be taking? is this an accomplished players thing?

What Anglo system will be preferable C/G or G/D? or expected good level of playing across the rows?

Unfortunately absence of badge stall is because festval organisers (in general - not just having a dig at this festival) are charging more to rent a stall than the income to be made from badges.
Quack!

Linda Kelly and I will be there for all the fringe and Dougie Maclean . Linda is soooooooo excited. I'm praying the van has a happy journey. I'll have Les, Maggie and Fiona on board to give me a push if I need one again.....(memories of a long hot day on the road South!)
Really looking forward to my 4th or 5th Warwick.(wonder why I can't be sure) It's only hours away - it's almost Wedneday I'll dig out my badge and hope to see you / hear you / meet you all.

Mr Happy - I find, and hide every £2 coin I can, from August through to ticket buying time. The anticipation of Warwick FF is such that I work harder at saving for it than for anything else. Don't ask me why - Wow, it's too good for words.

Hey Jim, missed you at Beverley - only 48 hours and it'll be Friday.
See you all soon.

I seem to remember that the Zetland Arms had a small garden area at the back. There were session being played in the garden but I spent most of my time inside a couple of years ago when I went. I did't go to any other pubs it seemed to be all kicking off at the Zetland.
Have a good one.

Sorry Ray for the delay in replying to your quiry re the session.
Normal sessions are in G and D and I know Jody Kruskal is taking his GD, but there will be no rules as such if you have a CG Anglo and you want to play something for the session in C nobody will mind.I will have my two anglos with me CD and GD so providing nobody turns up with a BpF I should be prepared.Everybody who wants to lead the session will get a chance it will not be restricted to a chosen few.
Although it is called the Big Squeeze it will be open to other instruments.It will be just one big session,with some top players turning up during the afternoon.
For the beginners workshop in the morning I will be taking two spare CG Anglos and everybody who attends will receive a free CD Tutor which covers all that I will be teaching.
Hope to see you at one of these events.

Last year the Zetland had a massive gazebo/marquee covering the garden at the back which quite spoilt the garden atmosphere. Session inside tended to be Irish as I recall. You might find or start something in the Bowling Green. Again there was a marquee in the garden last year but as the garden is huge it didn't have such a negative impact as the one at the Zetland.

Although I have had a concertina some 30 years (CD)I have only in last 5 or so started to make any headway (now a GD 3 row too)

I am not an expert by any means and anything I can pick up is abonus

I never stop learning something new I reckon

As I put the final box of books together, I notice amongst them a copy of the "Planxty Song Book". This is valuable in itself in that it is the only known picture of Christy Moore's right bosom.
