Hi everyone,
just returned from the wonderful Linlithgow folk festival.
With happy memories of Belhaven beer, swinging kilts, pipers, songs, songs, songs, more songs, beer , beer , beer .. more beer and meeting with such lovely people.
Oh yes, and then ofcourse there was Ralph  Wink supported by Eilidh Grant and her band.
Ralph was on form and seemed very relaxed.
The first night started with a Ceilidh and continued to the pubs for music and song sessions which lasted into the wee small ooers.
Sadly missed some of the workshops due to slow starts in the morning.
Spent some good leisure time wandering around Linlithgow, visiting Mary Queen of Scots palace and walking all the way rooond the loch !
And when the weather picked up we chilled out by the canal to some dulcit didgery doo
Many thanks to everyone involved in organising such a wonderful festival and for being so friendly to us Sassenachs !

Lucienne.

Hi JJ,
I dont write a set list and I'm not very good at remembering .. somehow when I'm in seventh heaven all memory disappears.
He DID do his new one though, and Cape Horn, Dreamtime, P&T .... maybe someone else will have a set list for you.

Hi L.
Glad you got home safe and well with good memories of your visit to Linlithgow Folk Festival.
It really was a bit special this year for sure!! and great in the pub on the Saturday night.
So you guys were the sleepyheids  posted missing from my Bluegrass Gospel session on the Sunday morning???
Great that you saw the whole weekend out at Linlithgow and hope you enjoyed the 'survivors' do' on Sunday.
It was really nice meeting you and maybe catch up somewhere down the road.
Take care
Slainte

Dan

I didn't note down the set list either but it included, from memory and not in order:
P & T
Mr Connaughton
Anji -  brilliant
Wild Cape Horn
Zig Zig Line
Clare to Here
Streets
After Rain
Lost Boys
Dreamtime
Drybone Rag - I think, but it was played magically!

.... no doubt others will come to mind as soon as the' post is posted'!!!

Hello Dan and Lucienne

I too had a fabulous time in Linlithgow (and I also made it to the Gospel session!).  It was lovely to meet you Dan and thanks to everyone who made this 'girl from London' feel so welcome  Kiss

I noted down Ralph's set list (most of which Dan has already mentioned):

Nettle Wine
New song - Walk into the Morning (I think) 
Zig-zag line
Little Birdie
Lost Boys
Around the Wild Cape Horn
From Clare to Here
In the Dreamtime
Anji (absolutely brilliant) - (Ralph made the comment that he always gets more applause for other people's work!)
Maginot Waltz
After Rain
Streets
Up
Dry Bone Shuffle
Peppers and Tomatoes
Mr Connaughton
Glory of Love (encore)
