    What amazes me is all the suggestions of folk wanting different stuff, poetry, traditional music ect. Have any of these folks approached K Dragon and suggested, or offered their help, to make these part of the big gig?
    The Viewfirth Folk Club held a series of very popular festivals at Viewfirth in the early seventies which attracted a worldwide audience and some of the biggest folk act of the time. The sessions were held in various hotels etc around town and culminated in an outdoor concert all day Saturday.
    Petty political squables led to the end of this club and pettiness stopped it re-emerging in a different form.

    A stick is my weapon of choice,

    But why don't you do what your given title of " Guitarist " is and put a note in it?

    G2, were the various gigs or the outdoor concert free? Formal clubs (which can be brilliant for getting things moving) can end up as a total nightmare if personal agendas get control.
    Any hints for a rejuvenation of the FC, or for helping get a better run at the Big Gig?

    The outside gig was free but the indoor ones had a charge. I was never involved in this festival as I didn't live in Caithness at the time.

    drummers actually count in multiples of 2, as drummers (bonham being the exception) only use 2 sticks. So show me anyone that counts to 4 & I'll call them a bassist & anybody that counts to 6 is a guitarist. Obviously anyone that counts to 7 & beyond is obviously martian or somewhere equally far out.

    where'd this come from anyhoo............................oh yes ROB FEST, in neon lights flying from every major landmark in the world with supergrass headlining

    LOL ZEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE to y'all sirs

    TBG08....................PA preps starting on Monday, GROAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    wich reminds me there's a bebo group for TBG08, & also reminds me I'm a moderator as well. Who did that to me anyway??????? reckonings will be had once I've been told by uppiemurray how to conduct it properly

    MONCUR what's the URL for TBG08 anyhow??
