The standard must be pretty good Al.

I heard Dave & Julie's song at MRFC and thought it was very good.

However the Lyrics are the critical thing, so who knows!

Same as you Al, good luck to em all.

Great to see John Blanks in there, especially after the year he has had.

In the words of his old rock and roll band, Go Johnny Go !!!

Villan - I think you'll find that no. 7 is Mark Addison/John Blanks.
JB wrote the tune and will be performing the song, but Mark wrote the excellent (IMHO!) lyrics.

Not being critical, just trying to give credit where it's due! :-)

Won't be there, but having heard the songs from Mark Addison/John Blanks and Dave & Julie Evardson, and if they are anything to go by, the standard is very high this year.
Good luck to the two above and also to Phil Brougham.

A 1, 2, 3 would be nice :-)

From: GUEST,SJ at Work

So, what time does it start, when do the artists need to be there, will there be a chance to soundcheck before the audience is in, do we need to bring any electrical kit (leads etc.)?

I'm asking these questions on here because I've heard ABSOLUTELY BUGGER-ALL from the organisers, and it's not even mentioned on the BBC Radio Lincolnshire website!


11 Oct 06 - 08:15 AM (#1855708)
Subject: RE: Lincolnshire Folk Song Comp Final 10
From: Sooz

Par for the course I'm afraid!
Starts at 7.30pm, bad form to arrive after its started LOL
No kit required and your first song is your soundcheck. That isn't nearly as bad as it sounds as the BBC are very good at that sort of thing.
Generally Artists only get a seat if they've booked one as the theatre is always full.

I was advised to be there for 7pm so that they could do a small sound check first.

Not sure of the difference between a small sound check and a big sound check though?

Sooz, they may be good at soundchecks, but they're crap at communication. Words like 'piss-up' and 'brewery' spring to mind! :-)

Well done everybody - it was a fantastic evening with some superb songs so it is a really great achievement all round.

They will be talking to SJ very soon live on BBC Radio Lincolnshire (around 7.30am.)

I was up Sooz, but didn't know SJ was on the radio, otherwise I would have listened.

The standard must have been very high, as I expected Dave & Julie Evardsons song to be in the top 3.

OK Sooz, I'm breaking radio silence for once...

Well done to John and Phil - and to everyone for that matter - it was a great evening all round. Have to agree with John that Phil's performance prize was particularly well-deserved.

It was good to see you all, and nice to come away with a prize as well!

Cheers,

Oh ... bother, I somehow got the idea into my head that it wouldn't be broadcast until tomorrow, so I missed it. I don't suppose anyone happened to record it, by any chance? I'd like to hear the show again, as would my loyal "fans" (aka my family).

Myrtle, for heaven's sake don't come between the man and his port - I wouldn't want to have that on my conscience! Thanks for the kind offer, it looks like Sooz may be able to sort me out, if not I'll come back to you.
