January 2007

Hi,
All the best for 2007 to you.

Some very cheerful news :
Shirley Collins has received an MBE, in recognition of her services to music, and Archie Fishers has also received an MBE, for services to traditional Scottish Music.
For more information, see the entries below, under "Folk".

An increasingly fast erosion of pubs in Kent, but the music seems to be hanging on in there, with some potential new venues being tried out.
What is your perception of the effects of the new licencing laws ? In particular, how do they seem to be affecting the music ?
There is a new online petition regarding these laws, see the entry in the SEFAN section, below.


No Fiddlers Various in 2006, but :
Fiddlers Various 2007 - Tommy Peoples :
Master Irish fiddler Tommy Peoples from Donegal has accepted an invitation from KentFolk to visit the South East of England in the Summer of 2007, as a Fiddlers Various special event.

Tommy will hold an all-day fiddle workshop at the Lewes Arms, Lewes, near Brighton, Sussex, on Saturday 9th June, 2007, and then give an evening concert.

The following day, on Sunday 10th June, 2007, Tommy Peoples will come to Kent, and hold a full afternoon's workshop at the excellent Littlebourne Thatched Barn, near Canterbury, followed by an evening concert. Further Information and Tickets.

Google Calendar :
Google Calendar has greatly improved since I first experimented with it. A nice feature is that you can overlay events from different sources, and build up your own private calendar, also with maps etc. ...
I have just added Google Calendar reminder buttons to the Fiddlers Various event pages. You can even have advance notifications of selected calendar events sent to your Mobile : Google SMS help

So far I have only added a few sessions and folk clubs, see the News pages below for Folk Clubs and for Sessions.
Hopefully more to come soon ....

If you already are signed up for Google Calendar, clicking on the button below will allow you to add a continually updated copy of this KentFolk Folk Clubs and Sessions Calendar to your private (secure) list of viewable and copyable calendars;
else it will take you to a Google page so that you can subscribe :


Google Adverts :
In the earliest days of KentFolk, an advertising banner was a required part of the hosting package I was using. That went, but I kept music related "Link-Exchange" banners on the site, in exchange for which the KentFolk banner was displayed on other music sites.

Google have been increasingly targetting their adverts even better, until they are now quite useful. Visiting other websites, I frequently find the adverts to be relevant and worth following. Thus I have finally decided to try them on KentFolk. At the moment they do not seem so well targetted, but they may fine tune. Your comments are very welcome.


Multi-level directories of News :
Do keep sending me news and items for both the calendar and this news section - now that I have built this new format news section things are flowing much easier.
Please see the info at the bottom of the news pages for guidance as to good formats to send me news items for these pages, and for event listings for the calendars.
cheers, Beau.
