  2. Mary P says:

    Some kids later i want to relive my youth and be a happy folker. Love the video. Missed it last year having bought the tickets. Then missed the early birds. So thats not funky. But one time I rubbed mudd on my armpits instead of Beckham perfum. I also have a pair of bell bottommed hot pants.

    back off Johnser !

  3. mitch the funky pigeon says:

    i used to be in a folk band, i was that funky,, the crowd used to shout “play that folky music white boy”. yours sincerely, the funky pigeon.

  4. Never been ta Ireland, but if I won I’d go just for what sounds a lovely festival, 22 ain’t music prejudiced-love everythin-every form o’ music! 🙂

  5. having been chased by zombies in one dream, into another where my ex-cat, now deceased (rip btw) spoke to me about his legacy (his name was Plato, i have 82 pics on facebook he was a god among cats) and his offspring, which i only found 2 days ago and he passed on 2 weeks ago then finally ending up in a last dream where the world had ended a million years ago and i was living there with memories of its actual ending, it was vague and 3rd party like remembering old holidays from school. im planning on going to this for few months but have no tickets as im skint as flint and havnt a bean. im feeling traumatised and alone and in need of a folksome weekend.
    all the above is true, the dreams are true and i only had a spicey cheese sambo before bed that night

  7. Ciara says:

    Funky? Well the James Brown of the storytelling world will be there… Eddie Lenihan! That’s pretty funky!

  8. Coralie says:

    i should win those tics to the fantastic festival that Spirit of Folk is gonna be because I never want to see Lady gaga live nor dead, cause I’m no couch potato to spend my spare time watching glee, cause i didn’t even want to know that david and vic now sold perfume, and best of all, cause I’m the little fairy that buy her Funky clothes from charity shops, likes dancing above all sporting activities and will smile at everybody at the festival if I get to go, pleeeeeeease 🙂

  9. Aideen Kiernan says:

    I would love to attend this festival so so so much but I’m currently scraping every penney together to get a ticket and living on beans! Lotsa buddies heading along but I’ve spent all my money and little savings to go back to college this year so this would be the perfect way to end the freedom before being stuck in the college books!

    I’ll somehow find a way to get a ticket but if you could help me out, i can stop eating scraps and build up my energy up on proper meals before the festivities! 🙂

  10. Avril Winters says:

    Give me the tickets or i’ll funk you all up!

  11. Lesley says:

    I would love to go to the spirit of folk
    Especially because I like to joke
    I love the music and all the workshops
    Lets just hope we don’t see too many rain drops
    You wanted funky…but I gave you silly
    I promise to wear something super frilly!

  12. I need these tickets because I’m getting married and have no spare pennies to go to any festivals and I am funked off at that. I love The Spirit of Folk and would truly love you if you made my year and sent me and my man off for a folk filled funkster weekend.

  13. nadeshade says:

    My ears dig the grooves of Bobby D to Woody G. My hips like to move to Steely Eye and Sufjan Ste. Keep it grassroots and I’ll bring my flute. I’m one fly mutha folker! Who’d love to go but ain’t got no dough!

  14. Siobhan McSorley says:

    We want the folk, the whole folk, nothin but the folk.

  15. emerald1234s says:

    I am the illegitimate child of a rolling stone and a rising bass line. Machine gun funk!

  16. sweetirishminx says:

    My alternative funk filled day – woke up to the sound of Cat Power in my kitchen playing tunes from her new album…so much funkier than my usual alarm call. Coffee and Danish in the garden with Joan Miro discussing his contempt for conventional painting methods and deciding to go his own funky way, a very cool guy….beats the rush hour drive to work. A drive up the coast with Shea Holbrook at the wheel as we debate the difficulties young women face in predominately male environments such as racing…she handles the coastal road with ease as only a woman can. The waves are breaking nice and we stop for a quick surk lesson with Ollie O Flaherty before tucking into some funky bish bash bosh burgers made by Jamie Oliver at Portrush before we all head into Barry’s for a race on the dodgems…we are no contest for Shea. An easy drive back home for a few beers in the garden as the sun sets to the deep low sound of Janis Joplin and Gil Scott Heron. Now that my friend was one funky day 🙂

  17. Caron Rodriguez says:

    Cause I wanna run away from adulthood @ age 50!:>)

  18. Aaron Burrows says:

    I wana go!

    My mother and I tend to “get down” with such events. We dance if we want to dun dun dah… No? ok… *Sad face*

  19. Vini says:

    I have been keeping off the spirits and staying away from folks, trying to find my centre, solidify my yolks but all work and no play are definitely no jokes, my quest for knowledge and sobriety has made me stoney brokes!

    . . . and my friends all say it’s deadly, please don’t ignore my hoax!

  20. Lulabell says:

    Nursing a heart broken by an irish man……..refusing to feel angry or bitter after 8yrs together…..and am determined to find peace within myself and ensure that positive vibes fill my being…..your video has made me smile and realise that actually there is a world full of happiness out there to discover……don’t expect to win the tickets, am just saying <3

  21. SCK says:

    I have my suspicions that I am a real folker through and through but I think I need this weekend to prove it. I also need my little Pixie girl with me to witness the unveiling of her Momma’s true identity!!! When you’re sending me my tickets will you send me a full check list to make sure I don’t forget a single folk-ing thing as I can’t be a true folk-er if I’ve left anything folk-y behind!

  22. Fiona says:

    SHAMAN…I want to go to Spirit of Folk! Right now I am sad and stoney broke but if you give me a ticket I shall be with kinfolk.

    Muchas Gracias.

  23. Fiona F says:

    I want to go and serenade the serenader John Spillane… tell him who I am…in response to his song … http://www.johnspillane.com/hey-dreamer-2/

    Obviously if serenading the serenader is off limits…I will still be happy to be there!

  24. Ruth Derwin says:

    I think I should win so I can bring my best friend, who is without a doubt the funkiest person I know. Without much (or any) encouragement she has been known break out into a full rendition of The Sugar Hill Gang’s ‘Rapper’s Delight’, dance moves and all. Along with this, she makes a huge effort to dress up like a mad yolk for festivals, which always gives people a laugh. We’ll make it to the festival somehow but, being poor students, winning a pair of tickets would be sweeeeet 🙂

  25. Peter says:

    Congratulations Coralie,

    If I’m honest it was the funky clothes charity shop and the smile at everyone line.

    Happy folkers 🙂


    ps: sorry I didnt have more tickets to give away 😉

  26. Coralie says:

    It was awesome!!! and I did really smile at everyone this weekend, I sure did, Thank YOU :)))))
