I had been hoping to announce Jon’s Midsummer concert at Cecil Sharp House and details of AFSAD 2 all in one go, but the details of the latter are still under discussion. I hope, therefore, as many of you as possible will join Jon and The Remnant Kings for a most fitting finale to the year’s A Folk Song A Day next Thursday 23rd of June. I know a lot of you have already bought tickets, but there are still some available and as such I’m offering five of our regulars (or even irregulars) the chance to win a pair of tickets and that’s for free, gratis and for nothing. All you’ll have to do is get yourselves there and back again, so please don’t enter if that’s a problem as you may deprive someone else of the opportunity of a great night out. To enter yourself for the draw simply send an email with your name address, a daytime and if necessary an evening telephone number to ensure we can contact you to email@example.com with AFSAD in the subject line. Nice and easy, no trick question and the winners will be selected at random on Monday 20th June – so don’t delay. Competition common sense must prevail (no alternatives, our decision and just the tickets, no transport, beer money, etc) and the winners will be announced here on Tuesday once they’ve been informed and confirmed their attendance. Tickets will be held at the door in the names of the winners to avoid postal dramas.
On the subject of AFSAD 2, I can’t say more as yet and there will be a break, but the very least we will do is make the tracks that started the project available to stream here again. Each day’s track will appear here as before and you’ll be welcome to listen in again, comment and so forth, but with the benefit of a year’s experience. I’m sure any latecomers will particularly welcome this, although I’m equally sure everyone will benefit from a refresher.
On Jon’s behalf, thank you all for listening this year. Hopefully we’ll all get the chance to raise the roof on Thursday as a small payback for this remarkable acheivement.
