Well the level of talent was amazing something for everyone and not a dull moment. Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday morning workshop with myself for Linedance and Brian and Julie for Partner was well attended and straight to work looking at some new dances full list later on in the post.
Friday night and were off with two great performers Bob Keeley and John Doherty very different but both brilliant keeping a busy floor all night and a couple at the end of the night together fab.
Saturday afternoon show was Shaina wow two brilliant spots her confidence is really shining through now keeping everyone happy whether dancing or listening.
Saturday Night gave us the brilliant Steve Jay and Chris Mezza two of the best musicians out there today and they didnt disappoint great night had by all and once again both did a couple at the end together rocking the house.
Sunday afternoon Zenne Kober her raw voice is totally unique and so Country totally brilliant and playing a great mix for dancers and listeners alike.
Then Sunday and a replacement is on the way as a member of Long Shot had taken ill i hope he gets well soon. But no worries we hear that Rob Childs is on his way you know you are in for a great night,Fantastic guitarist brilliant sense of humor interacting with the audience always a winner for me and coupled with the crazy Soul n Stone who are fabulous our last night was awesome and when all three performed at the end it was electric and a brilliant end to the weekend well done all Artistes great line up.
Three busy workshops with myself and Brian and Julie teaching a nice selection of new dances, Linedances taught are THANK YOU by Tina Argyle a brilliant tribute to Garry Perkins WHOS THAT MAN by Tina Argyle WOMAN LOVE and YOUR MEMORY by myself and BOUND TA GIT DOWN by Rob Fowler all were very well received and thank you for all the lovely comments about my two new dances.
Once again Brian Minns and Julie Minns will post Partner dances taught this weekend, Always love working with Julie and Brian they give it there all well done guys.
And Ky and Angie thanks for keeping the event open it holds a lot of memories for a lot of people who dont want to see it stop so im told by so many, As you know im the new boy ( BOY lol) i never new this event before i joined it but the scene is changing lots more events to go to which waters everything down and then its harder to get a great atmosphere with less people attending so dont throw away your past memory's keep adding to them and keep coming to this festival to add to your memories in the future .
You are lovely people who enjoy YOUR festival and its a pleasure for me to be there helping you to enjoy your event. Merry Christmas guys see you at all three next year hope you had a good time and got home safe.
Cliff and Lynne.
