Committee 2000-2001

President

Committee-Jon

Jon frequently comments that he has a dossy job on committee and that Anne does all the work not sure where he gets that idea from! A fine example of where turning up to a Ceilidh Soc AGM unprepared can lead. He can be seen playing fiddle at sessions and in Ceilidh Soc bands. Aim for the year – to become Harry Potter.

Treasurer

Committee-Kate

Kate never suspected where bumping into Jo and Ruth at a Flook gig would lead now she’s got her hands on Ceilidh Soc’s vast funds and she’s mysteriously disappeared off to South America for the summer allegedly on a charitable trip with hard earned funds, we have other suspicions!! Kate plays flutes.Aim for the year – to become a Flook band member, and to play 7/8 tunes until people like them.

Music Officer

Committee-Josie

Josie regularly fiddles in public, and is dead good. If you think you might want to have a go at playing on stage for a Ceilidh, then this is who to ask. Aim this year – to train everyone to polka/play/drink at double speed.

House Manager

Committee-Sue

Sue is a bit of a star really – when you are staggering around at a Ceilidh, getting confused with both your left feet, Sue will be calmly running the whole thing like a true professional. That’s the plan, anyway. May also occasionally be seen on stage blowing down something. Aim this year – to be incredibly nice to everyone so that they do a stint on the door.

Equipment Officer

Committee-Richard

Richard always comes to the session with the wrong box, or brings both along only to moan at changes which mean a lot of unstrapping and re-strapping. Looks after the PA. Aim for the year – to be able to play ‘Out on the Ocean’ on every folk instrument. Apart from possibly the English pipes, which would be a bit unkind to everyone.

Vice-President

Committee-Anne

Anne is easily spotted at Ceilidh Soc events ‘cos she has bright red spiky hair (allegedly soon turning pink – watch this space!!) and carries around a large black case on her back, out of which occasionally emerges a ‘cello. Aim for the year – to stop those fiddle players playing those silly squeaky high notes, and to play some decent low notes for a change.

Secretary

Committee-Lynsey

Lynsey is a curly haired gal with a fine selection of funky dresses to ceilidh in so if you’re in a panic on a Friday night, why not call round and raid her wardrobe!! Definitely mad about dancing, there are also rumours that she plays flute – can anyone substantiate this? Aim for the year – to keep Japanese and Russian words out of the Ceilidh Soc minutes.

Publicity

Committee-Ruth  Committee-Catrin

Ruth and Catrin are both part of a single amorphous blob which makes up the publicity machine. Recently the blob underwent drastic surgery with the removal of Jo, so if they seem a bit dazed, try and comfort them. Aim this year – to collect a record number of electrical appliances into the publicity office.

Committee-Brian

Brian took on the role part way through the year, we will wait and see what the end result of all the shouting is…
