I cannot believe it is 21 years since we first met in the "Crown" and planned number 1. Do you remember that we only had 4 Fresnells and the best we could do was a blue backwash overimposed with a St. Andrew X? and that was the finale? 
Remember the mysteriously disappearing on-stage boat? 
No-one could work out how we managed to get the mast up? 
Best wishes for you all - I wish I could be with you - it was so much fun. 

To the current Technical Director - beat me at my own game - and make me proud.

Fantastic to have Barbara Dickson at the festival. Magical live artist and now - with a return to her folk roots - making some of the best music of her career.

hi, from nordenham/ (northern) germany, 
we, my scotish friends (thx Ken, thx Ken, thx Grace) went to stonehavenfolk festival 2006 quite spontanioully, i didn´t knew what to come. 
what i found? 
a really warm welcome from peoples i´ve never met before ( specially the young butcher, he sold the sandwiches)an the jaegermeister, we drank outside the hotel. 
what i found most impressive was the peaceful atmosphere at stonehavenduring the festival, specially on sunday at the harbour. 
i´ve really enjoyed it and i´ll be back next year. 
looking forward...

Congratulations on another fine selection of performers and Festival. 

Mike Peters was excellent with his playing and song, plus his added musical research gave a new focus for us. 

Vin garbutt singing and his antedotal humour had the audiance in "stitches" and calling for more 

We did feel that he second part of the Blues concert a little too loud for the size of room, but never the less enjoyable. 

We only saw The New Rope String Band in the Market square and wished we had tickets for there earlier perfomance. 

Well done again, from all eight of us, reserve nine tickets for us in 2007, see you all there
