Shetland - and the need for good stamina...

Just heard from a good pal in Lerwick who was heading back to his digs to catch a few hours of shut-eye at 12 noon after being up all night long, enjoying sessions, followed by a spot of breakfast at 6am this morning, followed by more sessions.
I guess he'll experience that thing they call Shetlag by the time Monday morning comes around.

Kinda wishing we'd made the effort to get back up this year, although we've been having a fine time of it in and around Portyree for the past few days.
I saw a post on Facebook this afternoon from Mhari who said that some musicians hadn't been to bed at all since arriving on Thursday!

Here's a 'midway' review of the festival from the Shetland Times:

"No snow without punch as folk festival lights up Cullivoe"

Spare a thought for the poor beggars with the Shetlag hangovers who will be on the ferry back to Aberdeen tonight. There's a Force 9 forecast!

I've been hearing loads of great reports from Shetland where the volunteers and organising committee are all gaining just as much praise as the musicians, as usual.
It's a mammoth task and they always pull it off with such style and generosity of spirit.
Well done one and all!

That's priceless and a great piece of writing. They just captured it all so well.
Rollercoaster ride or what!
