We'll have to sort out a meeting some time. Diamond is over in Bromsgrove as well. From Hometown Blues, Percy The Wonderant and his slide festival; more details on the Michael Messer forum:

Hi Folks,

On the 5th of January 2009 MM started the thread ‘Where in the World are You?’ in ‘Talking Blues’.

“Another reason for finding out where forum members and visitors are based is because I have been thinking about putting an event together where we could all meet for a day. There could be instruments and accessories exhibited and some performances, classes and lectures. This is something that I have wanted to do for a while, but not done anything about making it happen. Maybe 2009 is the time to start!”

As a reaction, and with a huge amount of help and encouragement form Michael I have arranged 'The 1st British Slide Guitar Festival'. A general get together, workshop, and evening concert for a hundred like minded souls on 23rd of January 2010.

Michael Messer has agreed to perform with his musical partner of many years Ed Genis. Lucy Zirins will provide support.

Michael will also host a workshop during the late afternoon for those of us who want to know how he really does it.

In addition there will be trade stands, and a talk about the history of slide, by Ian McWee, ‘From beef bones & rail track nails, to plastic wonders'. He will bring a full set of examples to pass around for folks to try, and the session will be illustrated musically by the playing of Steve Thompson.

The programme will start in the early afternoon, (doors open at noon), with a getting to know each other session and a ‘Rolling Buffet’ . As the afternoon progresses, between the more formal events there will be an open mic. Those with a little less confidence can sign up for a ‘partnered jam’ and spend a while playing together and perhaps taking the the open mic as a duo etc..

This will all take place in the Godiva Room and conservatory of The Red Lion, a 500 year old Coaching Inn & three star hotel situated in Long Street in Atherstone, North Warwickshire, In addition to a very good restaurant, bar meals are also available.

Attendees will be eligible to take advantage of a Single occupancy tariff of £49 per night with B&B in one of the 37 rooms available.

01827 713 156 Fax: 01827 711 404 E-mail: info@atherstoneredlion.co.uk .

I chose Atherstone because it is situated on the A5 between the M6 M1 and M42. Travel is easy from all but the most far flung parts of England. I have checked the current availability of rail super saver return tickets from York, Leeds, Cardiff, Exeter, Bristol, Southampton, and Liverpool and none costs more than £17 to Atherstone Station.

If you are travelling from London oldmanblue will have some empty seats in his cab which need to be filled.

In order to keep costs low and make this event available to as many forum members as possible, admission will be by pre payment. On receipt of payment a unique reference will be issued which will be required to gain entrance. Advance subscription of the full fee of is £25 required.

For details of how to register please send a PM to PercytheWonderAnt or an E-mail to perce@percyparadise.com

I really look forward to meeting you all there and putting some faces to names. If we can all make this work once we can move on to organising the 2nd British Slide Festival. Its up to you............


Percy
