I agree - it was a lovely evening. We stayed for a few of the songs in the bar afterwards. It was great to have a sing and the bonus was not having to queue to get out of the car park!

Trelawnyd last night was excellent - but oddly not a sell out.  Rather reticent singaround afterwards.  Lots of people stayed, but just to listen, so only a few songs.  Karen and I both managed to fluff the words in the first verse of ours!  Lovely to hear Sam sing - on quizzing him about his song afterwards, it transpires I have the same recording of it he has so I shall be learning it too!

Among all the solo stuff which is fab, I really liked the new traditional tracks Jon et al played last night - Hard Times of Old England, Prentice Boy, Epsom Races, Brown's Daughter  - just a few that stuck in my head. I really hope they get round to recording them all.

Pontardawe was wonderful, in the company of Bridget and Andy & Phil.  Stunning performances all around. Can't sing at the mo cos of on-going cough. This will probably be a worry at Soundpost too - but a relief for everyone else. LOL!  ::)

I almost like what JB does with the Remnant Kings better than Bellowhead. It's adventurous, experimental, and lovely to see the way the stage is dressed and lit, with the wax cylinder phonographs given pride of place and the musicians clearly enjoying playing a muliplicity of instruments (especially Sam, who must be the hardest-working folkie on the planet).
I loved the one they did with three or four of them playing squeezeboxes (The Hounds of Love), it was probably my favourite of the ones not on Songs From the Floodplain, but there was so much to delight and I wished there was an album of the music that I could buy - I really think it's time they put something down for us to hold on to.

Hope your throat's all better Shirl and you had a good time at Soundpost. What a pair we were that night with our heads, throats, coughs, sniffles etc! I really wasn't up to staying behind for the singing after, all I wanted was to curl up in my nice warm bed!
