The front piece.

Magnifying glasses on standby. To the right of the bloke with the beard and the girl with the hat there is me lying back looking at my camera screen.

Nice picture of you Jude.

I'm sitting on a legless chair. Possibly not the only thing that was legless in the photograph  Grin They give a little support to the back, without blocking the view of people behind. Unfortunately they are not the most comfortable chairs in the world.

Excellent Paul - it's amazing how many people have got in touch with me having found themselves in the book, and not just the main subject pix but people who've found themselves in the backgrounds.

Without being disrespectful to anyone, does anyone remember the 'Where's Wally?' books in the 1980's?  It seems like 'Festival Folk' has an element of that !!!

Happy hunting folks !!

Thought you might be interested in seeing a review of the book 'FESTIVAL FOLK' which appears in the October/November issue of the USA magazine 'Dirty Linen'.    Many thanks to the journalist Pamela Murray Winters who has written this great review!!   If you try googling her name you'll find she has written interesting articles on a wide variety of musicians.

I've had difficulty attaching the actual review but I'll ask Chris to help.

In the meantime, if anyone has not yet bought a copy this is an opportunity to learn a bit more about it and to whet your appetite. I have received so many enthusiastic responses and good feedback that I am happy to guarantee your money back if you don't enjoy it !!! (returned in good nick of course!).    There are still copies available but i need to sell them all (from the limited edition of 1500) in order to finalise the profit amount to be donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Please visit www.festivalfolk.co.uk to order

cheers
Joss

OK - here it is....from a journalist on the Washington Times, no less - although this was written for Dirty Linen, the US equivalent of our FRoots, I suppose.

FESTIVAL FOLK
by Joss Mullinger and Catherine Hayward
This Way Books ISBN 0-9549434-0-6 (2005); £15

If you've ever been to Fairport Convention's Cropredy festival, you'll want a gander at this book - even if you don't have the same dedication to the event as the woman whose back, tattooed with a tasteful dragons-and¬-vines-bedecked "Fairport Convention Cropredy”, is pictured on the front cover.

Simon Nicol confirmed by e¬mail that it's a real tattoo, and he should know - this most eloquent Fairporter wrote the foreword to this photo collection. Catherine Hayward, fashion editor of Esquire (!), describes the clothing worn by the photos' subjects as "style innovation in its purest form. Alternative, entrepre¬neurial, and sometimes ever so slightly loopy."

Now I've been to Cropredy a half-dozen times or so, and I've seen few of these colorful folk - mostly it's lots of Fairport-related T-shirts, muddy Doc Martens, and rookie-¬Caucasian sunburns.

Joss Mul1inger, who shot these photos in the late 1990s and early 2000s, has clearly gone out of his way to show the most exotic creatures in that temporary Eden by the canal. Some of the photos are grouped by "festival style themes"¬ - hair, T-shirts, hats, beards. (My editor quipped, "What, no 'bald heads'?") My favorite "model" is on p.76, a grey-haired fellow whose nickname, Bazza, is woven in beads into twin strands of his long beard.

Photos of Cropredy performers also appear, including a really sweet one of Norma Waterson and Martin Carthy, who seem to be fondly watching and applauding daughter Eliza Carthy during her 2001 set. But the best moments for nostalgists such as myself (as I write this review, it's just days before a Cropredy 1 won't be attending) come from catching glimpses of the shuttle bus, the Brasenose Arms, and the Canoe Club breakfast sign. Proceeds from this book benefit England's Teenage Cancer Trust. Alas, no shoppers' guide to Britfolk-themed tattoos is included.

Just updated the Festival Folk website with 3 pix from Cropredy 2005, with any luck I might be able to get some more different ones onto here for you to see.

I suspect, ChrisBatesDotOrg, that you have been taken in by the dryness and drollery of Messrs McMurphy and, errr, Jim. It's a good book, actually, I have a signed copy which has pride of place on one of my coffee tables. Haven't found myself in it yet, but one lives in hope...

Just found out the wasp I killed yesterday was a wasp cop who was too old for this s**t and only one week away from retirement. Feel awful.

Hi folks--

Thanks, Chris, for posting my review of Festival Folk...but I have to say: Washington Post, not Washington Times! The latter is a nutbag right-wing rag (although the guy who does music reviews is a fine fellow).

Joss, great book.

Maybe next year <sigh>...
