Play till midnight including each performer  playing1 song in the style of different artist to the original recording. (Shades of "I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue")
Phil, can you give an  example?  Is it like, play a country blues song in the style of a different CB artist, or a non-CB song in the style of a CB artist?

For example,  a song by Blind Lemon in the style of Casey Bill. Any song you like, any 2 artists you like. It's just for fun so don't worry about it.

It seems we also have an added (secret) little workshop being formulated as I type, so there's something else to look forward to  :P

Laura in answer to your question, as I see it you could play a Big Joe Williams song in the style of Memphis Minnie, conversely if you were a bloke and wore a tight truss you could do  Big Joe Wilams song in the style Of Memhis Minnie.   :-X

I'll try and ring the hotel to see how we are doing.

Hello,

I am a very infrequent poster to this site but was asked once by Bluesholme if I'd care to attend your shindig.
Can you tell if a place is still available and how much it costs. If room I will travel down from North East and can pick anyone up on way down(work pays petrol costs :D)

Cheers

Ian,

As far as we are concerned there is room for one more but you would need to check out if there is a room at the hotel, it's around ?85 per night all found (not sure exactly). You need to mention the Blues Weekend to get our special deal.

If not, there are plenty of B&B's and even camping (one participant and his partner did that a couple of years ago) nearby in the New Forest and we could arrange for you to dine with us so you don't miss out on the jollities.

Not long now.  Do we know the final numbers? 

I can almost taste the rubbery meat.

And is it cheating to use a tune I played last year as my "in the style of" tune...? :D

About the dozen.

Yes, it is cheating, but that's between you and your conscience Your Honour.  ;D

Righto...

There's a fine line between putting the lyrics of a song to another artists music, and actually doing a song in the style of.  My efforts so far have ended up being the former...! 

12 is a good number.  Bit less than last year?  Certainly enough that we ought not to run out of repertoire though.

Apologies if this is in the thread somewhere...but what time do people arrive on the Friday and depart on the Sunday?

People tend to drift in mid-afternoon on the Friday and hover on the patio / bar with tea/ beer depending on their proclivities.

Sunday is pretty much a case of have breakfast, and drift off when you feel up to it.

2 weeks to go.

We hope the Prof's arm is going to be up to the trip.

 Disappointing news is that Laura has withdrawn as her work has moved her to Europe.

Don't forget to be getting your heads around that song in the style of another - you can do it!

No problem, we'll look forward to it. There will be a  penalty to be paid in beer though!
