West Somerset Folk Festival, Carhampton, Saturday 30 June 2018, 2.15 – 3.45pm

Message from Fritjof:

‘Dear fellow Brigstowe Banditos,

Thank you for volunteering for playing at the WSFF. Our slot is from 2.15 to 3.45 and we shall play in the Main Hall. The adjacent Long Hall will be available from 12 noon for lunch (please bring your own), tuning up and a short practice.

We’ll have to play our gig very much by ear, depending on how keen people are to dance. I attach a sort of plan: BVB programme WSFF. On the day, Anne our caller, will tell us what type of music she wants for each dance, and we’ll select from the list. The number of repeats will be variable.

In addition there will be listening pieces and solos. If anyone else would like a spot in the limelight and contribute a solo piece, please let me know.

The provisional plan is the sequence listening piece – dance – listening piece, but we’ll see how it pans out. The attachment should explain my thoughts. Any suggestions for improvements / additions are welcome, but please do NOT suggest the Helston Furry Dance.

The music for ‘Man in the Moon’ and ‘Percy Brown’ have now been put on the website. Sheet music for ‘Pop Goes the Weasel’ can be found here: Pop Goes the Weasel.
