Festival 2007

Singarounds - Festival 2007 Every Day

As usual many, many great singaround moments. Some will remember with great affection Marie Little joining in the afternoon singaround. Personnally I could listen to Ken's wonderful collection of songs all day. What about Jan, great voice, great guitar marvellous songs.  Vince and his mandolin, Maureen with her serene violin, Terry on the banjo, Sandra on the flute, Elliot on the violin, Colin's melodeon, Mark's unaccompanied singing, and on and on.  Your all superstars! Who did you enjoy hearing, tell us with a comments

 The campsite singarounde went on until 5 and 6 in the morning, let us know with a comment what you were singing and some of the highlights, if you remember!

Monologue Joe - Festival 2007 Friday Compere

The infamous Monologue Joe started the festival with a bang by introducing himself with The Ballad of Monologue Joe, nobody knows quite how much of it is true, which makes it twice as funny. He followed this with the follow up to Albert and the Lion, which he wrote with Bernard Wrigley- Albert, The Lion And The Booze. With the audience in stitches and Monologue ready to keep going all night we finally reeled him in and he introduced the first act with a poem he had specially written - The Pelican Babies.

Pelican Babies - Festival 2007 Friday 8pm

 Stunning harmonies, great guitar, sometimes the Everly Brothers, sometimes Simon and Garfunkel but always the Pelican Babies. Don't forget the didgeridoo a great counterpoint.

Anthony John Clarke Band - Festival 2007 Friday 9pm

The Anthony John Clark band was expanded by the addition of Dennis Wayne on a borrowed bass just minutes before they went on; a fast car was sent to pick up the bass guitar. Right from the start Anthony John said they would give us a slow song to fall in love, then a fast one to get up and dance and this is exactly what they did; not sure who fell in love but we saw the ones that got up and danced.

Bernard Cromarty - Festival 2007 Saturday 2pm

For the third year in succession Bernard bounced onto the stage with all the energy of a demented rabbit complete with piano accordian, guitar and concertina. This time he was limited to 20 minutes, not his usual  3 hours or more. Amazingly he kept to the schedule.

Ken Nicol - Saturday 2.30pm

 Bernard Cromarty had warmed up the audience which was ready for something different when Ken Nicol strode on to the stage and after some swift tuning launched into a recently composed instrumental which hasn't been named yet.

We were spellbound by the end but the perfectionist in Ken clearly wasn't 100% happy. Next we were treated to some blues with Sitting On Top Of The World and then a ragtime instrumental Rags To Riches, territory which is home to Ken as he relaxed into his afternoon performance.

Marie Little - Saturday 9pm

 It was great to have Marie spend the afternoon listening to the performances and then generously joining in with a singaround.  Finally at 9pm she took to the stage, warming up (Maire's words) with the Nanci Griffiths song I Wish It Would Rain might have seemed a mistake, this wasn't Glastonbury and the last thing these festival goers wanted was rain.
