I may be able to stay long enough to get to the Mudgather. It should only take me an hour and a half or so to get home.

Thanks Khatt,

Pass on our love to all.

May be back next year. Depends how the Wareham Wail turns out and what other festival we will be doing next year. We are booked at Deal Maritme this year and they may not want us back.

Please can someone light a candle or do whatever, for my car? It's decided that it doesn't want to go....

Add to that the fact that half the camping gear is missing, half of it is useless and the whistle on the kettle has melted.... I'm not a happy bunny.....

Candle on the go LtS, though your car is sharing it with some pretty special people & our Pusskat too.

Looks like Bridgnorth may be out, but if so might just drop into the barn to see how you're all geting along. If not, have a jolly good weekend & please raise a glass & a song in this direction :-)

Thank you Guru, and I hope your special people and pusskats recover as the car did at midnight!

It doesn't like the rain and it doesn't like being parked under the tree that grows outside our house. I can't cut the tree down (nor do I want to) and it was the only parking space within 400 yards on Tuesday when I parked it.

See you in the pub everyone!!!

I didn't see anyone taking pictures on Sun or Mon nights.
Great singarounds as usual. Some pretty interesting songs making appearances, too.
Quite a few instruments squeezing in (pardon me for being intolerant - but there are so few voices sessions and so many music only sessions that I don't see this as a good thing).

See ya

Dressing up night was good. Micca and I wore our wedding outfits and Tony and Pearl lead everyone in The Wedding Song for us...which was special!!

Thank you to Tony and Pearl for leading the wonderful sing-a-round in the Barn and to Morticia and Micca for leading the sing-a-round on Monday night. Tony and Pearl you were missed last night.

Great to meet up with old friends and make new friends too.

See you all soon x

It was good to get there this year if only for two sessions (Saturday lunchtime just me and Sunday night with moira). I took a few photos Sunday night as such an occasion could not go unrecorded, good luck to you catsPHiddle and Micca.
Now as for instruments, yes I did have my melodeon but you can't accuse me of playing it was just for sale!

From: GUEST,blue george

Yes, a good do again - but excuse me mentioning it, all the picture-taking (and the games with the hip-flasks) while other people were singing was a real pain.

The Barn used to be noted as a place with a very open atmosphere, where everyone was listened to with respect: it's a great shame that that's being lost, to one where people are being made to feel they're intruding on a private party.

I'm sure the people who're doing it don't realise what it looks like to others, but ...

Subject: RE: Mudgather at Towersey, anyone?
From: Liz the Squeak

There has always been picture taking at the barn and a good thing too... in some cases, it's all we have left of the singers (Rod Sherman and Chris Gorniak to name but two). The hip flasks can get out of hand but again, they've been around for years.

Tony O'Neill runs the singarounds in the Barn. He asks folks to behave if he feels the need to. If Tony says stop, it stops. If he doesn't say anything, then whatever happens, happens. There is certainly no intention to make it a private party, if you want a try of a hipflask, just put out your hand and grab it as it goes past.

However..... you go to ANY club/pub/office - anywhere that people gather in numbers - and you will find there is an "inner circle" of jokes you don't understand, conversations you can't break into or activities you aren't asked to participate in. It's just part of lifes' rich tapestry.
