Goverment Bill will ban Sword Dancing - Please sign new Petition

The Government is in the process of introducing the 'Violent Crimes Reduction Bill' whereby the sale and use of items such as swords will be prohibited unless for historical re-enactment or sporting activities.
(This actually mainly applies to curved swords - but why should dancers stop using them ?)
Currently, the government does not recognize dance as either a historical re-enactment or a sporting activity and therefore dancers are not included within the exemption for the purchase & use of swords with regards to the Violent Crimes Reduction Bill (VCR Bill).
Traditional folklore dances in England since as far back as 1700s have been known to use props such as sticks and swords as part of their dances. These dances are forms of art that are of great historical & cultural relevance. Banning the purchase of and, more importantly, the use of these swords may cause such dancing to die out.
It is crucial that sword dances are preserved & allowed to continue.
There is a petition which is up on the home office website.

Please show your support and sign the petition to get dance included so that we can continue to preserve and perform the beautiful art of sword dance.
Whether you are a dancer or not, your support is needed, and fast the closing date is 25th June 2008
More signatures are desperately needed; here is the link:

petitions.pm.gov.uk/dancers/

We the undersigned propose that dance be included as historical re-enactment or sporting activity within the exemption for the purchase & use of swords. HEALTH/FITNESS/SPORT: Dance promotes a healthy lifestyle & is often taught as a form of aerobic sport exercise. Other classes focus on technique & performance, at a professional level a good knowledge of fitness & physiology is required. Belly dancers & many other types of traditional folklore dancers learn to use various props, such as sticks & swords which requires a great deal of skill, takes years to perfect & requires absolute stability of the head & neck, & flexibility & power. Thus, Types of dance that use swords as props, are 'an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess' which is the definition of sport, therefore, should be included within the Sporting Activity exemption. HISTORICAL PRESERVATION: Swords have been used in many traditional folklore dances in England since as far back as 1700s. These dances are forms of art that are of great historical & cultural relevance, Banning the use of these swords will inevitably cause them to die out. It is crucial that they are preserved & allowed to continue.

Please sign-up - Beau

- Some of the best Cajun music going.
Another excellent Cajun dance in the Littlebourne Thatched Barn.
Also a quite reasonable quality recording, joining the list of music in the queue for editing ....

And then there was the evening concert in St. Mary's, Sandwich - this was kicked-off by Delta Tom - keep listening to him - he set himself the task of playing the blues and how he does ....
As for the Dealers, just go see the photo-report - they have upped the ante ....
And it was a surprise to even me, how many firm friends Truckstop Honeymoon have in Kent - so please keep coming back.

More items on the theme of "it won't keep happening if it is not well supported"..... :

TAPS (Traditional Arts Projects) - www.tradarts.org - have had their funding withdrawn as part of the recent reduction in funding to the arts and sciences, and have now gone into receivership.

SEFAN (South East Folk Arts Network) - www.sefan.org.uk/ - have also lost their funding, and are being run at a reduced level on a voluntary basis.

Bottleneck Blues - www.bottleneckblues.co.uk/ - are getting good support at the moment, but please do not let it drop off ...
Wrotham Arms - www.myspace.com/wrothamarms , Hook & Hatchet, - www.hookandhatchet.co.uk/ and Barnaby Rudge - have all been steaming on the days that I have been there, but that is what the publicans and players need to afford to put the music on for you -

e-FolkMusic - www.efolkmusic.org/ - They have done high-quality folk, in the form of paid MP3 music downloads, for a number of years (KentFok now has tracks there, see below), to the benefit of both performers and listeners - Chris Frank, who runs it, has just been driven to write a desperate plea (see the definition of a "Hail-Mary" pass) :
"Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child... ...and sometimes I feel like I'm standing out in the BLAZING SUN in a HOT DOG SUIT waving my arms, yelling "HEY- HELP SAVE FOLK MUSIC and I know how good the music is and how nobody's buying music anymore , music is everywhere, can't get away from it, what the heck are we going to do???..."

- support them all is my advice, or the music scene will soon not be as we know it now .... keep the support up and things may get even better .... you will find more information in the monthly news items under "Organisations" (or "Venues" for the pubs).



DARTFORD FOLK CLUB - "BBC Radio 2 Folk Club of the Year - 2008"
The club was honoured to receive this award on Monday 4 February at The Brewery, London. The trophy was presented to Pam and Alan by Jez Lowe - Well done - and very much deserved - beau.
See www.dartfordfolk.org.uk/dfc_award08.htm .



A piece of technology that I have been a-waiting for a while has now appeared :
the Auto-tuning guitar - "Under-the-Hood" - from Gibson - has the advantage that it re-tunes to a range of tunings, so quickly that you only need carry the one guitar ... no info on prices, but sure to be steep for a while, and then drop like a stone .... p.s. No news as to if it changes the strings as well .....



New Players needed for Traditional Music sessions
There are many traditional sessions, open stages and sing-arounds in Kent these days, with the traditional sessions covering styles from English to Celtic to French/Breton/Eastern European to Renaissance ....
However while some of the young people's open stages are doing well, there is a worry that there are a lack of new people, particularly young people, particularly fiddlers, at the traditional sessions.
Please see the plea for new players, in the Sessions section below :
Sessions
......| A plea for new players at traditional sessions - particularly younger players.txt
If you are interested in coming along, but would like to practice some tunes first, I have put, in the Sessions news section, a pointer to finding out what tunes are played at the different sessions:
......| What tunes do they play at the different sessions.txt
I have also put there info on gig-reports, from the sessions, with photos and down-loadable .mp3 music.


Simple Simons Session
Really advanced notice : For a number of years now a group of American students has come over from Hope College, Michigan, and a Sunday session has been organised for them in Simple Simons.

This year they will be over on Sunday 18th May :
Shelagh Bradley is organising the following :

English Music Session- Mike Ruth Paul Me (Watershed Band)
Irish Music Session- Paul Judy Me Ian-Gnome Andy Manion
Singing Katie (+ some gospel songs they might know) + Roly or Richard Matthewman

We'd all be round the table where we usually are so the evening (times approximate) might go like this:

8pm ..30 mins English tunes ....30 mins Irish tunes ....20 mins Songs
And so on with space for floor spots...
we might even ask if they will dance a barn dance with us

Does this sound like a good programme ?



Spring Cajun Dance in Littlebourne Thatched Barn
More really advanced notice : on Sunday 25th of May 2008, of the Spring Bank Holiday, there will be Cajun Dance in Littlebourne Barm - fiddler Yves Langlois will be paying a visit from his new home in France, The Cajun dancers will be there - come and shift those winter cobwebs. Don't worry if you do not know Cajun dance, there will be a short workshop.
See www.KentFolk/KF_gigs/ .


Monkey Puzzle Concerts
I am afraid that the Monkey Puzzle concert in Littlebourne Thatched Barn for the Monday 26th of May of the Spring Bank Holiday is off - they are no longer all available on this date.

However there will be pub gigs :

  • Monday 16th June 2008 : Laura Targett & Chris Taylor - Barnaby Rudge, 52 Albion Street, Broadstairs, CT10 1NE .
  • Wednesday 18th June 2008 : Laura Targett and Monkey Puzzle - The Man of Kent Ale House, 6-8 John St., Rochester, ME1 1YN .
  • Saturday 21st June 2008 : Laura Targett and Monkey Puzzle - The Wrotham Arms, 9 Ramsgate Road, Broadstairs, CT10 1QQ .
  • I will tell you if I hear of further dates to be anounced later.

    Monkey Puzzle :

    Their Folk, Celtic, Cajun, Jazz, and Gypsy rhythms have a strong Kentish following.
    See www.KentFolk/KF_gigs/ .

    Selling individual MP3 tracks, and complete Digital Albums, over the web :
    For some time KentFolk has been using PayPal to sell local musician's CDs. A new technology that I have wanted for some time, is now in place: - KentFolk can now sell individual MP3 tracks, either directly from the KentFolk web pages, with payment by CC or PayPal, or via the highly respected eFolkMusic www.eFolkMusic.org, in the States.

    If you are a musician, group or band that would like to sell your tracks over the web, and of course this is particularly good for both CDs that have all sold out, as well as new tracks that are not yet on a CD, then please email me : Beau@KentFolk.com

    I am limited in my time available to "turn the handle" on these, and it is very time-consuming, but will do what I can. As a preliminary offering, the 2003 Deal LifeBoat House shanty recording were the first available on the web - both in the form of a few individual tracks, and the complete recording - all net profit to the NLRI, after the CC/PayPal deductions.

    MP3 music currently available on KentFolk, at www.kentfolk.com/#Mp3music :

    MP3 music currently available on eFolkMusic, in the "KentFolk stable",
    at www.efolkmusic.org/ArtMusic/ViewArtist.aspx?a=0&AID=1570 :

    The KentFolk page on eFolkMusic is at : www.efolkmusic.org/ArtMusic/ViewArtist.aspx?a=0&AID=1570
    Then go to the MP3 and Digital Album links.


    Multi-level directories of News :
    Do keep sending me news and items for both the calendar and this news section -
    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.
