Title: Upcoming gigs
Post by: Carolyn on Wednesday, April 15 2009 11:00AM GMT-1
We mentioned this somewhere else so I thought I'd start a a thread, although a whole new section would be good.  SQUEEZY, PLEASE   :)

Benji Kirkpatrick at the Stables, Wavendon this Thursday, 16th April. Anyone else going?

Nope, but I did realise the other day that he's playing (with his band!  :aemo_spibodjmp:) at Twickenham on Sunday, so I've talked a few people into going to that with me  ;D Stop tempting me with M:C - it's too far!

Benji is playing these 4 gigs with Cormac Byrne (percussionist) and Sam Norman (double bass) = a band! :)

Thanks, Ellie - I saw on Bright Young Folks "Benji as trio" but it didn't say with whom.

I'm going to see M:C at Colchester on 27th.

Oops!  Got carried away there   ::).  I love Cormac Byrne - It doesn't say anything about a band on the Stables website, and it will be rather a small stage (although M:C are on there a fortnight later!)  Oh wow - got to get there early and get a seat Cormac-side!  Woohoo - that's cheered me up no end   ;D

They were rather good last night.  :aemo_spibodjmp:
Cormac side will be left as you face the stage  ;) - he is a very special percussionist. And what a brilliant encore - I won't spoil it for you but I would KILL for a recording of it.

Cormac's lovely.  He looks like a 10 year old allowed to stay up late!  His percussion skills are absolutely mind boggling!

This is the man in question I presume: http://www.myspace.com/cormacbyrne

We have our tickets for Steeleye in Lancaster on the last day of the current tour - 10th May.  They're very busy this year with trips to the US and Australia, and another tour here in the autumn.
Title: Re: Upcoming gigs
Post by: Anna on Thursday, April 16 2009 11:44AM GMT-1
Yes, that's the one! He's another one who looks too young to be fanciable (or have I just got a higher moral standard than some forum members?!!), but he's a fantastic percussionist. Seth Lakeman should have kept hold of him and not got a drummer. I'm really looking forward to tonight now. :D
Title: Re: Upcoming gigs

Karen saw him at the Folkport weekend and came back raving about him (his musical ability of course!).
Title: Re: Upcoming gigs

He really is absoutely astonishing.  I could watch and listen to him on his own all night.  I've seen him with Seth Lakeman and Uiscedwr and to be honest it's Cormac I want to see.  Seth's not quite the attraction he was since Cormac left, I'm afraid!

totally agree Carolyn.     These days I won't even bother going to see Seth.    He's chasing the £££ too much and the music has suffered.

I wish I could afford the time to go down to C# house for the St. George's day concert but,alas, all money is now being saved for my trip to Chicago in three weeks time. I think Kerfuffle in Birmingham is out for Saturday as well. I need a folky fix!
Title: Re: Upcoming gigs
Post by: Carolyn on Monday, April 20 2009 12:44PM GMT-1
While scrolling through the listings for the Stables, I spotted Sam Carter.  He supported S&B (I think - it might have been Bellowhead)  at the horrible Carling Academy Oxford (or it might have been the Bully!) and he was jolly good.  Anyway, Friday 11th September, Stage 2 at the Stables, £9.50 if you book ahead, £11.50 on the door.  That's quite a price difference, isn't it!

Depends how much the booking fee is...too many places don't put enough of a difference in prices to make it worthwhile booking in advance  ::) Although Twickenham turned out to be £9 on the door, not the £8 they said on their website...
Title: Re: Upcoming gigs
Post by: Carolyn on Monday, April 20 2009 01:50PM GMT-1
I think both prices were "in person".  The booking fee is added on top of the stated price.  I always get Stables tickets ahead now - and if I'm not there for a gig I combine it with a trip to Ikea   ;D

It is Midge on vocals.  The line-up for the current tour is the 'classic' line-up: Midge Ure, Chris Cross, Billy Currie and Warren Cann.  I've actually never heard any of the earlier stuff with John Foxx.  Shocking really, I must have a listen!  :)

Don't think that will last long!  I now find it odd if I don't know a sizeable chunk of the audience!

My next three are the weekend after next - Eliza on the Friday, Bellowhead on the Saturday (both at Holmfirth), and my favourite folky band, Steeleye Span (BH are an incredibly close second) in Lancaster on the Sunday.

22nd May - We're supporting the House Sisters so watch that as well. :D

Then on the 23rd/24th May it's ceilidhs, open air concerts and a general folk bananza in Hexham!!!!

I highly reccommend all of you coming along to any of the events, Clockwork are playing at 3, Down in the Attic (one of my other bands) are playing at two and The Hydroholics (ceilidh band I play in) are playing the ceilidhs!!

Ooh Stu - a recognisable picture of you!  Possibly   ::)

I'm off to the Mill in Banbury to see Little Johnny England (with the lovely PJ Wright   :-*) on Friday.  They're doing a tour, if anyone's interested.  Then on Tuesday next week, it's ColvinQuarmby at the Mill.  I took the precaution of booking an aisle seat for both of them as the seats are FAR too close together and I have to stick my legs out sideways   ::).  Never mind - can't wait, specially for LJE.

Oh yes, and at the Ride a Cock Horse folk club in Banbury tomorrow night, we've got Clive Gregson who I'd never heard of   :-[ but he's written for Fairport and EVERYthing!  It would be lovely to see some of you there...

You won't be disappointed with Clive. He's a fantastic singer/songwriter and pretty good on the ol' guitar. Fist saw him when he was in Plainsong a few years back. Have followed him ever since.

They seem to be playing a few dates "up north" while I'm "down south".  It happens nearly every time they are over here!  Glad I managed to catch them at Bury Met last year.  They are sooooo good (I may have mentioned that before!)

I don't think I'll make it, going home on Saturday for a birthday meal with my family, and even tho it will be in the afternoon I should probably stay the night, not just rush off.

Plans for June seem to be:

13th June - Emmanuel Church, Didsbury, Manchester.  Manchester Chorale will be taking part in a charity concert.

19th June - Drever McCusker Woomble at Bury Met

20th June - St George's Singers concert at Gorton Monastery (it always feels odd being in the audience at a choral concert!)

24th June - Gigspanner at Preston Guildhall

26th June - Kerfuffle at Northwich Folk Club.

A fairly quiet month really!

Wimbourne in a couple of weeks, and then either Bunkfest or Swanage in September - our lot don't like whole weekends away (too old!). Fingers crossed for Swanage though - could be really lovely if we have a September like last year :)

Pah! Tell 'em that we have people over 80 out on a weeks tour every year! By the way, I've been meaning to ask for a while, who do you dance with?

As for gigs for me, my next one will definately be Cropredy, possibly Ely but I haven't got anyone to go with. Hmmm.
Title: Re: Upcoming gigs
Post by: firebird on Friday, June 5 2009 09:18AM GMT-1
More a problem in that a lot of them have small and school-age children, so I would think that it's quite hard to just vanish for whole weekends right through the summer :)

I dance with Hurst Morris People (http://www.hump.org.uk/) (aka HuMP  ::)).

I've not got much planned for June, too many exams!! 

Going to see a group of monks perform some of their dances/rituals on the 16th, then nothing til the 25th when Clockwork are supporting Rob Clements. 

July, will be going to/playing at Rothbury Traditional Folk Festival on the opening night along with Last Orders then a ceilidh with band Heads on the Block!  Then Brampton Live on the 19th!!  Looking forward to Peatbog Faeires, Elbow Jane, Jez Lowe and of course, playing with Clockwork there as well!  ;D

I had nothing for weeks and weeks -  from 8th May until Peatbog Faeries on 16th July, but all of a sudden I'm seeing John Jones in Banbury.  Apart from the weekly folk club of course, but I don't count that as going out!

Anyway, we're going to this:

Sounds quite fun, and hoping they'll let the boy into Banco de Gaia as that's a big reason for going (and blimey I realise I saw Pianocircus years ago at Edinburgh festival!)... I've always wanted to see inside the Royal Geographical Society  ;D

Did you make it to see John Kirkpatrick in Walthamstow Andy, as I was there yesterday also. If I'd read this thread earlier I'd have looked out for you. He was very good, and his performance seeemed to get increasingly silly as it went on. He did a great version of 'Ain't No Pleasing You' by Chas and Dave towards the end.

Sadly not, I was asked if I could do some dogsitting and agreed to it before I remembered it was the same evening.  :(

A bit of Chas and Dave in an east end pub, how appropriate. :D

This isn't upcoming anymore, but i'm in a lazy mood and couldn't be bothered to find the recent gigs bit.  Went to see a group of Buddhist monks show their prayer routines, dances and music last night.  They're called Tashi-Lhunpo monks I believe and it was really quite a powerful performance, something that people should see, really helps you appreciate the different cultures around the Earth.

I'm tempted Shelley but I need to save a bit of money and it's a school night as well. I'll be seeing Jim Moray in October and I need to buy a ticket for Kerfuffle at the Met (as well as ones for Eliza C and The Demon Barber's Roadshow).

I've also booked for a Doctor Who convention in Brum and I need hotel money! I can't miss the chance to meet Bernard Cribbins though!

Tempted by the Dhol Foundation in Hebden Bridge on Friday.  Trains seem to run fairly late and it's years since I've been to the Trades club. I didn't know about this gig at all until I surfed to the Alan Bearman Music tourdate (http://www.alanbearmanmusic.co.uk/tour/default.asp) page. There's lots of interesting info if you have a look around! :)

Train fares are ridiculously high. And they wonder why people don't want to get out of their cars. We have a family railcard, which paid for itself the first time we used it, to go to Weston-Super-Mare to visit Ethan's auntie and uncle. It costs less for Ethan and me to get to Oxford than it does on my own. (Until we actually get there, that is, then I have to keep buying food...)

And back on thread   :).  Tonight Anna and I are seeing the Peatbog Faeries at the Stables (fingers crossed for the jazzy brass bit   ???) and next week we're seeing the Spooky Men's Chorale.  We haven't seen either before so should be good.  I hope.  Oh, then on August 1st it's Genticorum at the Arts Depot, North Finchley for me.

I've been to things on my own before and it's fine.

The second time I saw Bellowhead (Spanfest at Kentwell), my friend left me as soon as Jon started to sing saying "Ooh, I don't like it" and abandoned me.  I still had a good time, and that was before I'd spotted that rather nice chap at the back too!

It's the Ride A Cock Horse folk club's annual barbecue and festival fund raiser next Wednesday, 29th July at the Mill in Banbury.  The BBQ starts at 7.00 (fingers crossed for the weather) with an acoustic set by Fola, followed by the concert with Keith Donnelly, Scarecrow and Something Nasty in the Woodshed who we LOVED at the festival last year.  Tickets are £8 in advance/£7 on the door, Concessions £6 advance/£7 on the door.  Advance tickets from Derek and Mary on 01295 709881.  It'll be lovely to see as many of you as would like to come!

They seem to be doing quite a lot of gigs - we caught them last year at Southwell and really enjoyed their set. Love to see them again, but Banbury's a bit far for a Wednesday night  :-\

In fact, rather far in the future, but those of you who know venues etc in Bristol (Cazzer!), any ideas of gigs on Sat 3rd October? I may possibly be down for a meeting, and would be more tempted to go if there was a decent gig to get to in the evening :)

Le Vent du Nord at Bury Met last night. These are a quartet of Québécois folk musicians along the lines of Genticorum. They play fiddle, feet, acoustic bass, piano and accordion and they all sing. They make a mighty racket. The show was very energetic with hardly a pause between pieces. Unfortunately a sparse crowd and woolly sound in the first half spoiled an excellent evening. They are all very easy on the eye as well!

Oh blast.  They were on at the Stables last night and I'd thought of going as I'm seeing Genticorum for the first time next Saturday and it would have been interesting to compare (and indeed, contrast).  But we're going to the Stables tonight and it was too much two nights in a row after work.   :(

The show is in the Rodewald Suite, no reserved cabaret style seating so make sure you're in the queue before the doors open at 8.00 pm. Nice and intimate venue, really close to the artists.

You'll need to book early as tickets for the After Eight season tend to sell out very quickly.

Cheers

I went to the first of these After Eight shows a few years back to see S&B. Nobody knew that the doors opened at eight. Loads of us were waiting outside at 7.30!

I've 80% made my mind up that I'm going to Liverpool this afternoon for a free African music festival at the pierhead. The weather looks OK and I have been reliably informed by Metcheck that it's not going to rain. I shall decide for sure at 2.00.

There is a folky type festival going on here in Whalley Range today called Hedgefest. It's costs money (£15) and does sound very twee. So I think I'll skip that.

After Shrewsbury, Show of Hands is my next gig, right at the end of November. There is some really good stuff coming up at the Junction over the next few months (Megson, Jim Moray Acoustic, Lau, Martin Simpson, Bad Shepherds, Karine Polwart, Faustus, Katheryn Tickell Band, I could go on...) but Show of Hands is the only one I'm allowed to go to.  :( I'm sure it'll be great, but this'll be the 6th time I've seen them... I'd much rather go and see someone I've not seen before like Jim Moray or Katheryn Tickell.

It's only a few minutes walk away from the station. When you leave the station, walk up the road, turn left into town. When you get to the bus station, cross over and go round the other bit of stupidly designed bus station (you'll see what I mean!) and then go left along the towpath and follow the sound of morris bells!

Full report afterwards please!

My October list has a few additions now. The rest of the month looks like this:

14 October -Jackie Oates at Bury Met
17 October - Abbie and the Lovelies at the Rose Theatre, Ormskirk
19 October - The Unthanks, Band on the Wall, Manchester
23 October - Jim Moray, Band on the Wall,
24 October - (probably) Gary and Vera Aspey, The White Lion Folk Club, Swinton (we sang one of their songs on the radio the other week so it would be nice to meet them!)
25 October - Bellowhead, Manchester Academy 2.

And at the end of the month, the Bailey Sisters will be putting themselves about in the folk clubs in Aly's part of the world

Coming back in time for
31 October - 3 Daft Monkeys, Manchester Academy 3

The plastic has taken a bit of a bashing.  Fortunately, my payrise seems to have come through already!

Aiming to see them tomorrow (Tuesday) at Band On The Wall...work allowing.

Shelley, please post a review, I'd be interested to hear what you thought of the show.

Saw them promotong their last album and loved it but this album seems somewhat different ???

Cheers

Title: Re: Upcoming gigs
Post by: Shelley on Tuesday, October 20 2009 12:01AM GMT-1
I don't know their last album at all but have got to know the current one quite well over the past week.  I'm still not sure about Rachel Unthank's voice on the recording, but live she sounded great, whereas Becky seemed to be struggling at times.  They have a huge band (10 on stage tonight) including a string quartet and a brass section (sound familiar?).  The set was quite varied, with stuff I didn't know as well as material from the new album.  They seemed to be on stage for a very long time.  We were standing and all ended up with stiff backs as nothing was particularly bouncy.  Quite enjoyed it, but as I said, I'm not familiar with their previous stuff as Rachel Unthank and the Winterset.  Excellent turnout though, so hope it's the same for them tomorrow.  They were very well received. Have fun!

Stephen knows more about them than me, so he'll be able to make a comparison.
Title: Re: Upcoming gigs
Post by: Stephenw on Tuesday, October 20 2009 12:11AM GMT-1
I think I enjoyed it more than Shelley, but I would have preferred to have sat down. Most of the songs came from the new album which is a little lighter in tone than The Bairns (but not much). It is a large band but they use it sparingly with most of the players multi-tasking. They got a good reception and a very attentive audience for what can be 'difficult' music. They are all very natural on stage but Becky does try to force her voice sometimes which can be a little offputting. I'd like to see them again tomorrow but I have to consider my finances and my back. I'll probably catch them at Bury Met next month but I suspect the atmosphere won't be half as good.

The thing was that they were perfectly nice, and then just turned on me for no reason. And the pay was really good, and the work wasn't that hard too...
If they had been tough from the start then I wouldn't be so mad, but the fact that they just changed for no reason is the worst thing!  >:(

Faustus in Morecambe (1 hr 24 by car)

Michelle Shocked in Birkenhead (1 hour ish by car)

I have seen Faustus twice in recent months but wouldn't mind seeing them again.

I haven't seen Michelle Shocked since 1987 and she doesn't come over here very often.  However, I don't know any of her more recent music.

Or just stay at home and have a quiet night in?

Great gig at Swindon last night (if that's not an oxymoron! :laugh:) Nice to hear Scotland Lane, Red Kites and one of Jon's solo pieces included in the mix. Not to much anti Swindon/Oxford feeling although Squeezy wrongly assumed he was the only Oxford United fan in attendance, there was at least one U's session ticket holder in the crowd, even if they weren't brave enough to admit it (and no it wasn't me!).

I'm sure CHS house tonight will be equally brilliant tonight. Have fun.

Pack up your sensible head with sandwiches and a good book for the trip and wave it off, say I!  I wish I hadn't let my sensible head tell me that Nettlebed is too far to go.  Even though that would have been my fourth gig of theirs this year.  They're utterly wonderful, and Jim Causley's voice singing anything is my current earworm.

Really good to see them relatively locally, and for the place to be relatively full as well :) And Alex's melodeon playing - well, I'll swear he just gets better every time I see them. Simply stunning. So much so that I spent most of the time watching him rather than Jim, as I normally do  :D

What does he do to them?! Dave broke two if not three strings at the M:C gig at The Hawth.  And amen to Alex's melodeon playing - sensational!

Paul just informed me I put Chris Wood and Andy Cutting - wishful thinking!  ::)
(should of course have been Martin Simpson)

And now the Stables website has announced Andy will not be there due to ill health. (I did sort of wonder as I know he was ill at his last gig). Sad but the decison is now easier.

What is on? have just googled Wandering William, never (argh, think I may be kicked off this forum) heard of the place before (they were card publishers, so I know where it is). Is it a singing workshop, was wittering last night (on way home from Unthanks) about the fact I hadn't been singing for many years. Oh dear, I expect to marching orders....

Well, if it hasn't sold out, and assuming I get organised tonight, I'm off to see John Tams (and Barry Coope) in Claygate on Friday! Bit mental, as Betty's coming home from conference in Scotland on Fri pm, and then we're both off to Sheffield on Saturday morning  ::) But sometimes you've just got to see people when they're around, especially if, like Tammsy, they don't come down south very often!

What do you think of their latest album? I like it lots. They're good at picking songs from the kind of classic English songwriters. They've done Nick Drake, Robert Wyatt, now on this album you've got Anne Briggs and Ewan MacColl. I think it's good, maybe just as important as keeping the trad songs alive.

Re: The Unthanks. Saw them last week, I love them, but took a friend who hadn't heard anything. She found them bit boring, which is a shame. I didn't feel the band really worked - they didn't all play every song, and therefore some members were sat to side of stage looking a tad fed-up. I hope the new format will work better when they have played together more. The music was still lovely (loved the Penguin Cafe homage on Blackbird), and the venue hadn't got its license, so there were 3 free drinks - brill!

Got a run of 3 gigs next week  ;D Start off with ColvinQuarmby at the Arkenstall Centre, Haddenham (Cambs) which I'm really looking forward to. Anyone who is free, please do come along as ticket sales have been a bit low.  :)

Then I'm seeing Dave Swarbrick at the Ely Folk Club on Wednesday, which is going to be fantastic because not only will I see Dave Swarbrick for £4.50 ( ;D) but it is their Christmas show, so there will be the customary folk club panto, involving both organisers and performers! Two years ago they did Dick Whittington with Uiscedwr (seeing Cormac Byrne as a female Molly dancer and Kevin Dempsey as a chav was really quite funny  :D) and last year they did Aladain (which involved the genie of the Morris bell and the genie of the tankard!) with Mary Humphreys and Anahata.

Then seeing Belshazzar's Feast at Cambridge Folk Club on Friday. Can't wait to see them again.

I'm very jealous FB - I've only seen him live once, at Shrewsbury FF in 2008, and I must admit I went along to see if he had his drummer with him (which he did!) but really enjoyed his set too.

Just looked at my diary, and this month's gigs look like this:

14th Jan - Imagined Village, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall (possible)
23th Jan - Flossie Malavialle, Sale Folk Club
30th Jan - Bellowhead, Glyndwr University (if I can find out how to get there.  The uni's website is singularly unhelpful, with not a single map of the campus!)

Think I've found the place now - via a tickets website. It's on the main uni campus, but that isn't clear from their website.
Title: Re: Upcoming gigs

I have had to buy a diary just to keep track of gigs! So for January/ early Feb (weather permitting) we have:

14 Jan - Spiers and Boden in Newcastle under Lyme
20 Jan - Imagined Village (and Chris Wood supporting!) - Shrewsbury
23 Jan - Justin Adams & Juldeh Camara - Shrewsbury
30 Jan - Bellowhead - Wrexham
31 Jan - Megson - Shrewsbury
4 Feb - Ukelele Orchestra- Shrewsbury
5 Feb - Beoga - Last Inn, Oswestry
6 Feb - Sam and Hannah, Red Lion Birmingham - supporting Gigspanner,

not very good for my carbon footprint, sorry.  will have to plant a lot more trees....

Well, after the weekend we're eating bread and pullit from now on, and no more gigs till the summer.  :'( Having said that, I'm trying to persuade parents to go and see Fairport on 14th in Cambridge.

Re: BH's Wrexham gig, I've found a campus map, on the section about their sports centre.  William Aston Hall is right by the main entrance, with a car park.

http://www.glyndwr.ac.uk/Studentsupportservices/en/Sportsfacilities/Location/

Actually, I think we should mark the occasion in some way - it will be my 20th BH gig!

I wonder what way? We could always meet for food - but not sure what gastronomic delights there are in Wrexham as not familiar with it

Dispiriting lack of decent gigs within reach of Cambridge in the next couple of months. Maybe we were spoilt for choice last year, with a pretty fantastic set of dates. But this year is not looking at all promising so far.  :(

I have seen Tim twice now - once at St Davids Hall and once at Blackwood Miners' Institute - the first time we were really surprised (and overjoyed!) to see that it was Pete Flood on percussion. The second time we were in an audience of about 20 in an intimate bar setting - both times he was brilliant. I highly recommend making the effort to see him if he's in the area. He's the one that persuaded me to take up the melodeon (now all I have to do is make the time for practice!) - he handed his to me to give it a try and I was surprised what a light touch it needs.

Yeah, it'll be my end of exam treat. I've been looking at train routes and it seems I'd have to faff around London which neither me or my parents are happy about me doing. Looking at National Express coaches now, but I'm not sure I want to spend 6 hours on a coach. It is cheaper though. Hmmm  :-\

Well Douglas wanted to go until I pointed out that it was a six hour round trip!

Enjoy - and make sure Sam tells the story of his new fiddle!

Excellent gig in Guildford . Sam told the story of his new fiddle and Hannah did her "silly" clog dance. Sam very kindly let me have the set list. Off to bed as I've been up since 5.30 so will post it tomorrow.

Excellent gig in Guildford . Sam told the story of his new fiddle and Hannah did her "silly" clog dance. Sam very kindly let me have the set list. Off to bed as I've been up since 5.30 so will post it tomorrow.  

Set list courtesy of Sam with inevitable amendments due to last-minute changes and the vagaries of David's memory (not mine, you understand!)...

Dick's Maggot / Dog Leap Stairs
Gaol Song / Goodbye Kenneth
Dance - jig
You Are The One
Gower Wassail
Swedish Polska
Wee Weaver
[Hannah]
The Young And Single Sailor
[Seeds of Love ?]

Ploughboy's Dream
Searching For Lambs [thanks, Ellie!]
Dance - waltz
Polska
Died For Love
Flaxley Green Dance / The Old Wife Of Coverdale
William Taylor [Hannah solo vocal - great last verse ;-) ]
Three Ravens
Dance - hornpipe
Catches and Glees / Comical Thought

Dance - Reel

Some uncertainties there ... any additions and corrections gratefully received if you were there!
Title: Re: Upcoming gigs
Post by: firebird on Saturday, February 20 2010 01:25PM GMT-1
The one after Ploughboy's dream was (I think) Searching for Lambs? The lady next to me was assiduously keeping a perfect setlist, while her husband took photos...

Good to see you and David, and you'll be pleased to hear that not only did I manage to find my car again, but I even managed to find my way out onto the right road! (only went round the 1-way system once...  ::))

I like too!! They did a short piece at the British Library ( my 'office') a few years ago and I've been wanting to see them again ever since. From what I can tell, frequent use of very, very dark humour but mesmerising performance. Enjoy!

Just managed to booked tickets for Mawkin:Causley in Darley Dale on Friday.  No mean feat, as the info on the band's website is wrong - it says they are playing in Matlock Bath, and the link to the venue doesn't work.  A bit of ferreting around, and checking Mawkin's website got me to this:

http://www.thewhitworthcentre.co.uk/events.htm

The weekend folk festival costs £25, but tickets for individual events are £10, available via Wegottickets.  The direct link for Friday is:

I'm on a 'gig' fast till next year coz I just can't afford it plus no one wants to 'treat' me to one. I was hoping I'd have sold the beltuna by now and have some cash to spare, but seems not. *sigh*

You could go to quite a few gigs for £50 y'know.  ::) ;D

Hi Helen

As far as I'm aware it's a standing gig.

I'll be there with Sharon, hopefully I'll be less intoxicated than I was at the last Band On The Wall gig I attended....just ask Shelley or Stephen...it wasn't a pretty sight :D

Got quite a few gigs coming up over the next month. Wednesday I'm supporting 4Square at Ely Folk Club ( ??? :-\), then it's Acorn Fayre at the weekend, which is always a good do.

Then, I found out today we have a music dept trip on 1st October to the Royal Festival Hall to see Faure's Pellas at Melisande Suite, Saint-Saens' Piano Concerto No.2 in G minor, and (the best bit) Stravinksky's The Rite of Spring performed by the London Philharmonic.  ;D ;D

Then, it's Chris Wood & Andy Cutting and Bellowhead at the Junction, and Show of Hands at Peterborough Cathedral.  :)

I've just remembered that I'm taking Mum and Dad to see the Mellstock Band on Saturday. Now if only Belshazzar's and/or J&J would play a gig in Surrey (what is the problem with Surrey? Lack of venues/audience?) then I reckon I'd have them converted...

I was in Halcyon Daze "The Little Shop Of Calm" in Cowbridge today and picked up one of their fliers - they've got Megson coming soon to their upstairs room (a very pleasant smaller venue in a centuries-old building) so I suggested to the chap there that they look out for some more of our favourites, specifically mentioning Hannah and Sam - he seemed very interested, so I will keep my fingers crossed...

What I liked about the leaflet was that it said "bring your own refreshments"! How very relaxed and civilised!

Jim Moray first night of his tour very good show. James D was excellent on hurdy gurdy and he even played guitar on one song. And Saul still has on all his festival wristbands - aahh

Excellent gig, even if the sound was a bit iffy at times. And we wondered whether they'd meant to make more use of the video screen. First night of the tour, so maybe a bit of ironing out of the technology to do? Still, all very enjoyable. And he didn't do "Spencer The Writer", so we all heaved a sigh of relief.  ;)

Indeed it was, and it was fantastic! Crazy experimental prog-folk at its finest. Could've done without misjudging the train times and waiting for 40 minutes on Ely Station platform with little more than the LP I'd just purchased to keep me entertained.

Just the one Bellowhead gig for me this time. I shall have to become more selective now that the OH is set to become 'im indoors.

Know what you mean. I was wanting to go see Belshazzar's Feast at Brigham on the 10th, however if the weather doesn't clear, I don't see them making it up, never mind me. Possibility of seeing them at Nettlebed since there's the possibilty that I may be down that way for other reasons so I just have to work out a way to get there from Oxford.

Should be able to get to see Phil Cunningham, John McCusker, Karen Mattheson and co at the end of December though since they're playing in Edinburgh (obviously provided that all of them can make it.)

All I can say is the motorways had better be clear by Hogmanay or I will be royally miffed!

Didn't make it to Bilston last night so really miserable.  I'd hoped it would be resheduled but it looks like it went ahead.  Oh well  :(

St Agnes Fountain at the Mill in Banbury next Thursday.  Not quite the same but should be a nice night so long as I've got an aisle seat!

Well, car booked, emergency supplies gathered ready to put in tomorrow, roads checked for passability. Just need to ring Brigham to check that Belshazzar's Feast are going to make it up for tomorrow. Then I get to visit friends on the way back so should hopefully be a good weekend provided the weather holds...

Sounds nice Mab :) Meanwhile, my gig plans are all awry - now not seeing BBTP tomorrow, as friend is mist-assignment, and I can't really afford it. Also almost definitely can't afford BF in Aldershot, and Kerfuffle in either Bournemouth or Hitchen is in peril too, depending on how much I manage to get done this weekend  :-\ Still, Magpie Lane are all paid for, and I'm owed for the 3 other tickets  ;D
Title: Re: Upcoming gigs
Post by: mab on Friday, December 10 2010 01:15PM GMT-1
I'd love to go to one of the Kerfuffle gigs but none of them are doable (and given my definition of doable, that's saying something!)
Am now considering either Magpie Lane or the Oxford Waits on the 19th though since it looks like I can only amend my cancelled national express ticket, not get a refund. Possibly would only be able to do one of them at 16.00 because the bus would come back at 22.00 meaning I'd have to be at the bus stop by 21.30. Hmm, decisions, decisions.

I shall probably miss you all then - 7pm for Magpie Lane, and will have to decide re the Waits on the Sunday - might have run out of energy by then!

Mab - brother and I are staying at the YHA Saturday night, if you want company for dinner...

Post by: brianleach on Friday, December 10 2010 03:39PM GMT-1
I see from Facebook that the "Oxford contingent" are doing the 7pm or is it 7.30 slot.

I shall probably be having dinner with my son and his partner unless they have other plans (ie don't want me around!!)

I will probably be bringing my bike on the train on Saturday and returning Sunday evening so went for the 4pm slot as I didn't want to risk late trains.

Finally got round to booking for the Phil Cunningham Christmas whatsit for tomorrow. I remember it from 2 years ago with the various artists desperately trying to remember what key they'd tried to rehearse a particular song and John McCusker sidling to the front of the stage and telling the audience, 'It's not often you get to attend the rehearsal, is it.' :laugh: so looking forward to that and then I've got the Mozart Festival Orchestra' Carols by Candlelight on Thursday. Restricted view and legroom for that one apparently but somehow, I'm not too concerned about the latter...

Yes Lorna, I've plans in place to see the Unthanks tour, thanks ;)

Hope you like the new album. I managed to see them a couple of times when they were touring The Bairns album. Loved it but I've got to say that I'm not too sure about their recorded material since then. Anyway, the Unthanks always seem better live than on disc so I'll be off to see them.......and the Trembling Bells of course ;D

My February gigs look like this so far (so much for cutting down....)

4th Melrose Quartet - Walkley Community Centre, Sheffield (Nancy and James, plus Richard and Jess Arrowsmith - really looking forward to seeing them)
5th Cath and Phil Tyler - Royal Traditions, Dungworth
18th Pete Coe - Oxford Folk Club
19th Zoe Mulford and the Bailey Sisters - The Hub Live! High Wycombe (sounds like one band and it looked like we were becoming that last night! Fun!)
22nd Imagined Village - Buxton Opera House - very tempted, but I am really trying to cut down....

March starts off quietly for me gig-wise, and then goes silly in the middle ...

12 March - Jackie Oates, Trelawnyd (probably)
17 March - Bella Hardy and the Manchester Camerata at Band on the Wall (should be really interesting.  I haven't seen Bella before, but I love the Camerata)
18 March - Jim Causley at Bromley Cross Folk Club
19 March - Hannah and Sam at the Globe, Glossop.

And then it all goes quiet again ....

With special guest appearance of someones legs (above the cat that Jim was trying to video) and shadow on right of image (towards the end) ;).

I think the difficulty is getting everyone from Shrewsbury to London and fitting in a radio interview as well, before the London shows. From what I have seen, it really is going to be well worth it.

Will post photos as soon as they are sorted but keep an eye out for the Guardian on Friday (fingers crossed).

No, I'm sure you're right, Mab - the link is clear.

Had a nice chat with Pete at the BFI yesterday and he told me of two things that at least some of the guys are involved in at the SBC soon:

Our gig with David Rotheray Band in Glee Club, Oxford has been pulled due to poor ticket sales! SO we are going to have a session in the Half Moon tomorrow night instead. For those of you who did buy a ticket; we'll buy you a beer! And we'll sing the songs from the album "unplugged" and Bella Hardy & me will do our folky thang too i expect and bring your instruments & voices and tell literally everyone you know! x
The Half Moon, 18 St Clement's Street, Oxford, OX4 1AB, UK

The pub is famous for its lively folk sessions every Sunday evening. Over the years we've been a starting point for some very successful acts, and hosted a lot of great folk names.

Blast - here I am, just up the road but I'm promised elsewhere.

I sent to Nettlebed for my Chris Wood tickets which arrived yesterday - numbers 20 and 21.  He's playing on Monday 23rd May, so even though I know the listings for the season only came out the other day (and I'm not sure if they're on the website yet), that doesn't seem many sold for someone like Chris.  If you're thinking of going, please do - I don't know if they ever cancel  gigs for lack of sales but I don't want to get a phone call to say they have  >:(

I can't understand why they left it so late to advertise it. I know they known about it for a while because it was plugged at another nettlebed gig back in March. I'm sure even in a few weeks they will get enough ticket sales for it to go ahead, after all its Chris Wood!

Disappointing attendance for Jez Lowe last night. Probably 20 at most and I think Winchester should be ashamed. We seem not to like to go to Northern folks gigs which is peculiar.

Still they were very good and those of us that were there tried very hard to give them something to work with.

Chris Wood is at The Forge in Basingstoke on 3rd June and has been advertised for some time. Consequently he is sold out and perhaps they wish they had booked the Haymarket or even the Anvil itself. Personally I am really looking forward to it as the Forge is such a lovely venue for this sort of music. Fay and the boys were lovely there recently.

It's a school night, but there are certain things that one just has to do.
Just an irresistible temptation.
And if it's good, it'll be something I'd hate to have missed.
If it's terrible, it'll still be a memory that'll be worth having. And telling about...

They have different guests on different days, so you'll possibly have Steve Jones, but you'll definitely have Matt Parker (http://www.standupmaths.com (http://www.standupmaths.com)) who has been tweeting about his appearance.

We did indeed get Helen Arney with her uke and song about Countdown, Matt Parker, Alan Moore, and Chris Addison in addition to the fab four. Lovely surprise, as I'd thought it would only be the 4 of them. My only complaint is that it was rather too much of a good thing - started at 7.45 and I left at 10.30 as I was worried about missing my train home. I know, no commitment. This meant missing almost all of Ben Goldacre's bit, but then I suppose his is the stuff I knew well already. And the surprise Chris Addison appearance meant that swooning opportunities were not entirely lost. I know, I'm very shallow.  ;DThe science was good too.  :P

Well it was last night in Cambridge Junction, and I have to report it was a damn fine show. No stage-diving this time... I'd guess Adam is past the age for that, though he has an amazing amount of energy, can still do the dancing, and seemed to thoroughly enjoy himself. As did the crowd. He did (more or less) a continuous two-hour set too, which was impressive.

Mr Ant was looking pretty good too, in a piratical way:

Quite bare for me too, just Chris wood tonight then Gower Festival (10th-12th) and AFSAD at C#House (23rd). :(

However July's looking much better  ;D

Post by: firebird on Friday, June 3 2011 12:07PM GMT-1
The rest of the year is looking terribly bare for me! Wimbourne Folk Festival next weekend, but am dancing both days, so not much time for anything else, and then Time Gentlemen Please in Wakefield on the 24th (can't wait!). Times are so hard that even Bellowhead autumn tour tickets are waiting until September! (please don't sell out before then...)

Enjoy Gower, Trunkles - it was lovely there last year. Would have liked to go again really, but it was a bit odd being there on my own, and the campsite was *very* windy!

I can't afford any festivals this year - even Cropredy which is 5 miles up the road from home.  I'm going to send Ethan's Grandad up the chimneys if it goes on like this. Oh - except Folk by the Oak and it better not rain!

I had a dilemma but now I haven't!  Time Gentlemen Please is on on the middle day of Banbury Fok Festival, which is my local and which I like to support.  I wasn't going to TGP because a) it's on at the same time as the festival and b) becasue Anna can't come and I felt guilty about going without her when I knew she wanted to go.  She said it was okay, and then I discovered that the Friday and Sunday festival tickets plus the TGP ticket come to only £2.50 more than a weekend ticket!  Huzzah - problem and dilemma solved and I'm going to both!  Woohoo  ;D

I'm sorry we didn't make it to Braunston.  I was ill (I get dizzy spells and have to just sleep it off with the aid of tablets) but hoped I'd be better for the evening, which I wasn't.  I hope you enjoyed it, Maureen.  How did they manage?
Title: Re: Upcoming gigs
Post by: maureen on Wednesday, June 29 2011 11:12AM GMT-1
So sorry you didn't make it and hope you are better now.

It was a really good night. We took your advice and got there early (had dinner there- lovely fish and chips) so got good seats. I've got lots of video to put up on Facebook, but that may have to wait until I'm home next week.

We did hear that there were not as many people as last month but it was still pretty full. Jim of course was wonderful. In response to a dare from me and from the promotor, he did The Lollipop Man!

It's quite a good folky week at Sratford - there is a narrowboat going along the canals putting on events. We're going to see Greenman Rising at Leamington on Friday. Then, at the weekend, it's the Riverside Festival, and Ahab are appearing on the Sunday.

The gig diary for July is looking very empty at the moment - so far just Royal Traditions on Saturday - the Noble Family.  That should be an evening of good hearty singing!

I'll get to Sidmouth on 30th, but as I don't know my stewarding duties yet, I've no idea who I'll be seeing/missing!  Bit of a lucky dip really.

It's Folk by the Oak on Sunday with Seth Lakeman headlining.  We know Benji won't be with him becasue he's busy elsewhere, but does anyone know if Cormac Byrne plays with him at all now?  That would be jolly good and worth the ticket price on its own!

He is an amazing bodhran player  :)

He wasn't on with Seth at Bristol (I seem to recall an actual rocknroll stylee drummer amd drum kit), but was on with FishCatDoor at Wood. And seems to be in Germany tomorrow...:

Yes - we've seen Seth with a normal drummer, but on the highlights from Cambridge (I think) he had Cormac who was MILES better!  By the way I don't like that picture of Cormac and Anna - why has she got what looks like a slash through her eye.  It makes me shudder.

It was, and it was delicious - so filling and cheap!  Not what we expected from Folk by the Oak at all.  £3.00 for an ice cream?  Mind you, it was delicious ice cream and it had real strawberries in it.  We did take loads of food all the same, and I'm having the leftovers for my lunch today.

Is 20 days too early to be an upcoming gig? We're gonig to Scarborough Fair to see Bellowhead, Demon Barbers, Shooglenifty and Martin Carthy plus others- will be my first all day event:)
I'm a little apprehensive after seeing how many it seats though- 6500! One for the anxiety levels to be well & truly tested, not much chance of seeing the band close up either so Squeezy- if you read this I'm one of the mad women screaming when your name is announced :)

Helen, did you find their website confusing? I think (hope) I've booked a ticket for the pontoon bit that sticks out into the lake. My ticket is numbered A1 but I don't know if everyone in a section gets the same number and then it's a matter of who gets in first choosing where to sit. Any idea?

18th - Bellowhead at Gawsworth Hall (gates open at 2, so hope the weather is good!)
19th - Burns Unit at Trelawnyd (I bought 4 tickets for this one, and I think only two of them are spoken for so far!)

and maybe

25th - Spooky Men's Chorale in Liverpool

I'd add Duncan MacFarlane Band to Shelley's list - only seen them once a few years ago but have recently found 2 cds which I like.

Likewise I haven't heard of the others, except Anna Shannon whom I think is a singer-songwriter, but I might be wrong.

It looks a fantastic line-up but I think I'd have a scrambled brain at the end of it!

14 April 2012 - National Youth Orchestra and members of Bellowhead exploring the links between classical and folk music at the RFH.

I've just booked with some difficulty as it kept declining my credit card. I eventually phoned the credit card company, and they'd put a restriction on it due to "abnormal activity". Apparently this was booking three gigs for the same band in the same month through Gigantic! What's abnormal about that?  ??? ;D

We were only talking about Mr Earle last night - OH has interviewed him twice and was recounting the story of the first time in the Paradiso in Amsterdam many many years ago (it must have been as OH was working for Sounds then!) which was the band's first time in Europe and at the end of a long night sampling the delights of Amsterdam with Mr Earle and his colleagues OH remembers that Mr Earle discovered his beloved leather jacket had been nicked while they were enjoying themselves - oops!  Welcome to Amsterdam  ::)

Shelley, the song in question is Haul Away. Neil is thinking of learning it to sing with his morris side - two of the dancers are shanty singers - but he is not sure of a word in the second verse. I think the words are 'merchants' convoys' but Neil doesn't agree. Can you shed any light?

Just found it, after quite a bit of googling! AH, and I know where it is too - the on-street parking's not too bad around there, and it's not a bad walk from parking up near the Spectrum. I guess I'll be going to that then - sound like quite an interesting new venue! (It's near the wrong station for me, although that depends where I'm coming from!).

We're A13 and 14.  I'd never noticed the live dates etc on the forum, or if I had, would have assumed it would just check back to the website.  Some more things to explore now, or will be if John can get my main computer working again (it died the other day).  I'm currently using the backup computer (called Rochdale) and it's not attached p  to any sound system - or at least not yet

And Dartford on 27 January! That's the closest they've come to me since I've known of them! Just booked but am away from home so had to book "best available" rather than choose and they've given me row F. Still, John is coming with me and he doesn't like to be too close to the front.

We're A13 and 14.

You got the seats I wasn't allowed because of the 'anti-single-person' policy (I'll just say ARGH and leave it at that  :)). I'm B23. I'd say sales are going quite well, considering it's not advertised anywhere except the G Live site yet!

And I still haven't managed to get hold of that ******* Nettlebed chap - answerphone every time I try  >:(

Well I'm glad I persuaded John to come then (acutally I didn't, I just booked the tickets and told him we were going! - I then heard about Birmingham which is a lot nearer us, but seeing as the seated list has disappeared and the gig's not listed on the theatre's website, I'm assuming contracts haven't been finalised?)

Hi all,

It seems I have a spare ticket for Andy Cutting at the Slaughtered Lamb for tonight - judging by the way I felt at 6 this morning, I think that gallivanting off for a late night in London really isn't in my best interests, much as I would love to be there. So if you or anyone you know can use it, let me know.

Cheers,
Ellie

Anyone within reasonable reach of Winchester on Tuesday 18th October PLEASE PLEASE come to see Jackie Oates and her band.

We enjoyed her set at Beautiful Days earlier in the year and would like to see Jackie Oates again. Unfortunately I will be a few thousand miles away for that week...

I'll put a note around the office though, and see if anyone here bites. Hope the attendance picks up.

I'd love to see her but she's not close enough to us either. 

While we're on the subject of poor ticket sales though, can I put in a belated word for Banbury folk festival which happens this weekend and so it's too late really.  In spite of the very low price (£50 for the weekend) sales are way down on last year and Derek and Mary are in danger of making a huge loss.  I hope this doesn't spell the end of another festival, becasue if it does, I think they'll give up the club as well - Derek only does the club becasue it puts so much money into the festival coffers.

Hardly upcoming, as this is a whole blimmin' year off. 

When I was 16/17, many, many decades ago, and doing  A level French, I had a total, if very pretentious crush on Johnny Hallyday.  Anyhow, today he has been all over the news - he's coming to London next October for his first ever UK gig.  I thought I must be the only one who cared, but after an unexpected outburst of fan-girliness shared with some of my Facebook friends, I am now the proud organiser of an outing to go and see him.  Had to move fast - the RAH is almost booked out already!

Maddy Prior at the Stables in March.

Bit confused as the info says she's accompanied by Giles Lewin and Hannah MARCH.  I can't find any Hannah March on google, at least not as a musician, but other info suggests Hannah JAMES is touring with Maddy and Giles (including Hannah's website)

Several - I've just noticed that Walsh and Pound are on at the Guildford Institute on the 27th of Jan, so that'll fit in nicely pre-Bellowhead on the 28th. Also, Tim van Eyken (yay!) at Dorking Folk Club on 8th Feb (saves me that horrible drive to Cheltenham), and Andy Cutting there on 21st March. In fact, they've got lots of people I would like to see - I might be 'visiting' my parents quite a lot in the next few months  :laugh:

Due to my new life of pretty much full time Norfolk living (give or take the odd week in London) my gig going has been severely curtailed - I can't get to a gig in London and get home the same night anymore....so I am going to be missing the Cecil Sharp Project this Friday which I am particularly gutted about  >:(  Have booked a Right Bank vs Left Bank Bordeaux wine dinner at our local wine bar instead (it's OH's birthday next week so seemed like the right thing to do.
I will be at the Hannah & Sam gig though and I shall be at Karine Polwart and Jim Moray in April/March in Cambridge.  And of course S&B in May.   Oh and the Unthanks in Ely in April.  Need to find more....but may not have much time.... See Nice Things

Late additions to my April gig list - if I can be really organised, I'm going to go to two gigs on Wednesday.  One is a tea-time harp duo recital at the church connected to the school where I work (with cake!) and the other is Vicki Swann and Jonny Dyer at the Dulcimer in Chorlton.

I'm off to Chicago next Thursday and, after a lot of bother, I have managed to get a ticket to a performance of the opera Moscow Cheryomuski by Shostakovich. This is hardly ever performed, so I'm very excited.

Off to look at the Chicago Old Town School of Folk Music website to see if there's anything worth going to see.

we're off to Sheffield Cathedral on friday night to see Squeezy & Jon :):)
Then on monday we go to see the Barber of Seville by Opera North which isn't really a gig but still exciting. Am plased as it has been very dry on the musical front since STEAM- although we have been on oliday doing lots of ruins & stuff up in Yorkshire so  shouldn't complain too much.
Any forumites going on friday? come & say hello if you are- i'm getting very good at this talking to real people lark now ;)

We're going to the Oxford Folk Weekend too and looking at the programme it seems the only official event on the Friday is a ceilidh - and I'm not up to dancing these days.

I'm looking at the fringe events, in particular the one at Isis Farmhouse Barn.  As far as I can see from the map this is only accessible on foot - we're staying at the Camping and Caravan Club site near the Park and Ride - it looks as though it's quite close.  Any residents of Oxford familiar with this area and can confirm or otherwise?

If that's next to the Isis Tavern, I usually park across the road from the Camping site and walk along the towpath and it's an easy, fairly short walk. I think you can park on the opposite bank and cross the canal but that one I can't confirm. Best to check your cash before you make the walk since I don't think the pub accepts card payments.

It's about a mile walking from the C&CC campsite, you can miss out the horrible junction at Wiers Lane/Abingdon Road by walkng through Canning Crescent, and then cut through the nature reserve I guess (we never did as whenever we've been we've had a pushchair, now those days are over!) and take a torch if you don't want to be walking down the riverside in the pitch dark late at night.

You probably can park in Iffley Village as Mab says (it's a bit of a drive round though!), but I never have as we're usually bussing from Abingdon.

Steve Tilston is playing at the Folk Club at Folly Bridge Inn (straight down Abingdon Road on the way into the centre and on the bus route). About 15-20 minutes i would think.

There are loads of good eating places in the immediate area but I don't think we've decided where to go yet.  Ethan would recommend Las Iguanas if only for the curly chips, but he won't be with us. If the market's on, there'll be lots of food stalls there but nowhere much to sit (or shelter if it's raining/cold).  Tut.  I've just had a look and it's not on on the Thursday.  Oh well - indoor eating it is then.

Who else is going, anyway?

5:30? We've decided that to have time to drop off stuff at our hotel (2 gigs in 2 nights - great timing!) and then get over to the Southbank with time to eat we're going to have to be gone by 5, which is a bit problematic with leaving work at 4! Suspect that it'll all go wrong and we'll be on the Paddington pasties as well, but hopefully we might manage somewhere a bit more civilised!

I'll be there Thursday. I went in Canteen last time I was at the SBC (to see some of BH and Raghu Dixit which was excellent) but Canteen was not! The food was cold and I sent it back for a replacement which wasn't much warmer. I've been in there  before and it's been fine so they may have been having an off day.

Didn't get there in time for dinner so settled for sandwich, crisps and cake at the venue.  Where were you sitting, Sarah?  We thought you were meant to be in Row B, Seat 24 but that was Lorna.  Sorry we missed you.

Was row b number 34. Maybe we should have organized a meeting spot as i seem to have missed veryone. Suddenly the cheers and claps coming from the right hand side of me make sense. lol

I had a seat with a built in whoppee cushion - and was not the only one, there was much hilarity during the incoming at the back on the left, I can tell you - but I did chicken out (sorry Mark  ::)) of making it do a farty noise during the stop in the Frozen Gin set  ;D.

We did end up having a pasty, and *lager* <pulls face>. 

It was a fab gig, loved Chris T-T (I know some of you don't) and J&J as fab as ever - and,  by the way, would you please record New York Girls as just you two? please?

Lovely to see those we bumped into, sorry we didn't bump into those we didn't!

Ah! So it *was* you...do you think they boobytrapped some of the seats? lol You sooo should have done it.

Perhaps we should start organising something between ourselves to do in the Sloe Gin set! (That was a joke, please never do it, and if you do, I will not be held accountable!)

Brilliant night, and I enjoyed Chris TT (wasn't really sure what to expect, other than AA Milne). I think it will take a while to stop imagining Tom Jones singing Tom Padget! Lovely to see everyone  :)

Roll on Sunday  ;D

Oh yes, and I got home just in time to catch Ten Thousand Miles on the red button. (It seems to have vanished now, I hope it comes back.)

Sadly it's the only one we can get to - thought the big stage was very lacking in atmosphere though the sound was good.

Just for you Fi

Yeah. I thought fans should allowed to dance for the encore on stage. ;)  you know just to fill it up :P

I was pleasantly surprised by Chris TT. I'd not seen him before live, but have got a CD that hasn't made much impression on me, but loved the AA Milne stuff. (Especially James James Morrison Morrison Weatherby George Dupree, which my son James always wanted me to read to him when he was small - poignant memories there)

Also loved Jon's Seven Yellow Gypsies and the whole evening was great. Lovely to see so many from here, and to see Mark again.

Yes, me too - wasn't too keen last time, but really enjoyed him this time. It was a lovely night - sorry I missed you Sarah, even though I obviously walked right past you! You must've been right close to Nick and Fi. Shout, next time  ::)  Agree re the very big stage - it's a little large for just two, no matter how much noise they make!

Still wish they would play a venue in southend....somewhere with atmosphere like the palace theatre or the railway hotel. But that's never going to happen (being the 'end of the line'). You go any further you get wet! lol

I think I've scraped together enough pennies (some of them virtual at the moment, from completing online surveys) to go to the Sandy Denny tribute concert at the Bridgewater Hall on Monday....however, the online booking system doesn't seem to be working at the moment.  I do hope that doesn't mean it has sold out.

Phew!  Panic over - it was just the "Best Seat Available" option that wasn't working.  The "Pick Your Own" was fine.

Due to the forecast of heavy rain ALL DAY we did not go to Southwell on Sunday.

I was so gutted on Monday evening when I found out the concerts had been streamed over the Internet.

WHY DID I NOT KNOW?

We could have sat at home and watched the music instead of sitting at home watching the rain and sulking.   >:(

What rotten luck Annie. I'm hoping Shrewsbury will be streamed later in the year as it was in 2011 although it's not quite the same as being there.
Title: Re: Upcoming gigs
Post by: maureen on Wednesday, June 6 2012 12:09PM GMT-1
Yes, I was annoyed about that as we did not know about the streaming until Monday, so missed most of the best acts. Did manage to catch the last two songs from Jon and the RKs as they repeated them in the interval on Monday.

Going to Wychwood just for the Friday this week - anyone else going?

Argh indeed! What is it with them and really intermittent, unpublicised gigs?  :(

Possibly this one is a bit impromptu, it said they were 'on thier way to WOMAD'. I wish I was on my way to WOMAD, frankly.

Just looking at gigs in Sheffield over the next couple of months. Looks like I might be contributing to this thread a little more often!

Not strictly a gig as such, but I'm very much looking forward to going to some of these events - http://www.soundpost.org.uk/tsf/

Oooh, oh oh oh! I've just spotted this, for the choral fans amongst us - http://www.thesixteen.com/page/the-choral-pilgrimage-2013 Really quite a stunning selection of music, from three of my favourite composers. Sheffield Cathedral in October 2013 already in my diary!

A pre-Shrewsbury treat on Thursday - a double header in Sheffield: Jon Boden and the Remant Kings and Fay Hield and the Hurricane Party!  Apparently it's a sell out.  Although both acts are playing at Shrewsbury I booked the tickets in case my stewarding duties clashed with their spots.  I'm glad I did!

I tried to book tickets for the Lock In at the Stables in person but they hadn't gone on general sale (they have a Friends of the Stables first policy), but I was booking other tickets as well (Blair Dunlop) and when the very nice lady saw I'd come all the way from Banbury, she let me have the Lock In tickets as well rather than go back.  I didn't have to pout or anything!  I like the Stables staff - they're very pleasant and use their common sense.

For anyone going to the Nic Jones gig at Cecil Sharp House tomorrow the following has just been posted on Facebook

If you're going to the gig on Saturday 22nd September , and travelling via the tube, Camden Town station is affected by engineering works. It is still open, but the Northern Line route from Charing Cross is not running, so you need to travel via an alternative route. (Additionally the down escalator will be out of commission until 5.30pm , spiral staircase being the only access to the platforms. Probably not so important if you're travelling to the gig.)

Joan Armatrading - well, she can still sing! Loved the old stuff but not keen on much of the new (except for one). Must admit, she wrote some good tunes, but words are dull - traditional love songs - no one dies in them and not much happens.  Was a good evening though as Chris Wood was supporting and he is always good value.

Tomorrow: Lady Maisery in Shrewsbury

9 - Michelle Shocked @ Band on the Wall
20 - Lucy Ward @ Goblins in the Ginnel, Glossop
21 - Old Dance School @ RNCM

Karine Polwart and Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer have local gigs on the same night - and I've got a choir rehearsal.  Bother, blast and knickers!

Took me the best part of a hour and half to get to Chesterfield last night, and will take nearly an hour to get to Dungworth tonight! I know how you feel though, Cambridge used to be similar (though seems to have got considerably better now I've left!).

Yes, you're looking at upper 20 quid mark Shelley.  I suppose for me, not going to anywhere near so many gigs and festivals as many folks on here, it works out about the same.  Mind you, if the cumulative total over 20 years of following them were to be calculated.....ahem

Everything overload in Oxford at Christmas, and it can be horrible getting in and especially parking (particularly if you're not used to Oxford!).  So even if you're a really established event, like the Waits or the Magpies, it can be a struggle to sell tickets. We didn't sell very well for Kerfuffle a couple of years ago, and not for want of trying. There's so much on especially near Christmas that people just go out last minute. They also wait to see what the weather will do!

It seems to be a rule that either :

The things you do want to see don't came anywhere near you on days you can get there OR everything you want to see comes to places you can get to all at the same time!

These rules are proven by:

1) Belshazzar's Feast - nearest places are at least 60 miles away on work nights - and it's the school christmas shows too ::)

2a) Cheltenham Folk Festival, Demon Barbers Lock-in(Stables) and Bellowhead (Warwick) all in one week (Folk Overload very likely- I might need a dose of Planet Rock by the end of that week!)
2b) Spiers & Boden (Stables), Show of Hands(Mill, Banbury) in a row midweek in April :-\

During the day the park and ride would be the best as anywhere in the city will cost a fortune. In the evening you could try parking in Mansfield Road as it's quite close to the centre/Holywell and not that difficult to get to. There are usually spaces although I believe it is now pay and display.

It was great, she got such a warm welcome on to the stage that it was clear that people had really missed her. She sounded as good as always but still looked ever so frail, even after such a long time away. The set was quite an unusual one but I got the impression it has been quite carefully chosen not to wear her out, even with that he was flagging just a little towards the end. It was great to see her but I very much doubt she will be doing many more gigs.

I've booked to see Jim Moray at Cecil Sharp House on February 14. I can't think of a better way to spend Valentine's Day.

I can - we're going to see Bellowhead in Sheffield as long as weather doesn't stop us

15th  The Lock-In, the Stables
16th  Bellowhead, Warwick Arts
20th  Haddo, Banbury folk club

We're going to Scunthorpe - the only gig on the horizon till S & B tour.
I'm not even sure I know exactly where Scunthorpe is - but it was the only date we could fit into our (surprisingly) busy February.

In the flat bit, ner Brigg. Sadly the Scunny gig is not on a Friday or Saturday night or I'd be there under the auspices of 'visiting my parents'.

it's been a slow start to the year for me due to work and illness but I'm going to see Jim Moray at C# house next Thursday and Anais Mitchell & Jefferson Hamer doing their Child Ballads gig there in early March.  And S&B in Haverhill on 14th April where we'll be dancing too! And I'm going to see Rigoletto at the Met in New York when I'm there in a couple of weeks time....

Sort of more northerner than where we are- which doesn't help you but my geography is dire. I'll be in red hair & an embroidered skirt so do say hello if you see anyone matching that vague description :)

If all goes to plan:

13th Bellowhead, Oxford
15th Bellowhead, Poole
16th Bellowhead, Warwick
17th Mawkin, Bristol
19th Oysterband, Gloucester Cathedral
21st Lock In, Bristol
22nd Lock In, Yeovil
23rd Oysterband, Treorchy
24th Bellowhead, Croydon
27th Lock In, Taunton
28th Mama Rosin, Bristol
1st Lock In, Birmingham

Just added the autumn tour images to the Bellowhead gallery, so there are now 64 gigs covering the last six years. Celtic Connections should be added as soon as it is decided which images will be used by EDS.  I possibly have up to another nine that must have slipped through the net!

The Full English is being performed at the Bury Met as part of the Folk Expo weekend. Other artists appearing include O'Hooley & Tidow, Jackie Oates, Lady Maisery, Jim Moray, Megson, Sam Carter and many more. The only problem is that Jim Causley is presenting his Charles Causley show at The Met on the same day, so I shall be torn as to what to go and see.

That sounds an interesting weekend, Stephen. How do you know who is on when?
Title: Re: Upcoming gigs
Post by: Stephenw on Friday, March 29 2013 02:19PM GMT-1
We don't yet. The programme hasn't been put online by the Met. These are early details gleaned from http://www.englishfolkexpo.com/ (http://www.englishfolkexpo.com/) and Jim Causley's website (http://www.jimcausley.co.uk/live-gigs?page=2 (http://www.jimcausley.co.uk/live-gigs?page=2)).

The Met has both a large and small performance area so some concerts will run simultaneously. I'm bound to miss something good.
