!!2nd April - The Bell at Adderbury Showcase
'' - Admission £6.00/Concessions £5.00 – on the door''
The Bell Folk session is on the first and third Monday of the month. They describe themselves as an
eclectic bunch of musicians – some just beginners, some who have been playing for too long to recall. With
roots in the Folk tradition, they also love to try out new songs and tunes. Blues, Beatles and Bhangra might
all be part of a typical Bell Folk night. Kevin West is hosting their visit to our club.

!!22nd April – Phil Hare. Floorspots available
''Admission £6/Cons £5 – on the door''
''Phil Hare'' is an established acoustic guitarist, singer, songwriter, recording artist and teacher
based in Cambridgeshire.
'A maverick guitar virtuoso with a neat line in social comment' (Time Out) A veteran performer
on the Folk Scene with over 1,000 performances under his belt, Phil's gigs are an eclectic
mix of original songs of social commentary - often with sing-along choruses - intertwined with
fingerstyle guitar tunes from a wide variety of folk 'traditions'. There is also a section of the
evening that is turned over to improvisation, and making a song up on the spot based on
subjects provided by the audience. [[www.rattlebus.co.uk|http://www.rattlebus.co.uk]]

!!29th April– Special Guest Night – Two Coats Colder. Floor spots available
''£7/£6 Cons - on the door''
''Two Coats Colder'' is one of the bands that won the vote at Banbury Folk Festival
Auditions at the club in 2013 and we are delighted to have them back for a whole night
at the club.Two Coats Colder are a quirky progressive acoustic folk band performing a
mix of self-penned traditional & contemporary songs. The line-up includes guitars, bass,
mandolin & harmonium. These musicians/singers, each with their own extensive
individual careers going back over decades, came together at High Barn, the renowned
beautiful period venue in Great Bardfield in Essex. ''Anna & Ray'' started playing as a duo
at the beginning of 2010 and added ''Chris and David'' in 2011. The name "Two Coats
Colder" was inspired by the local wisdom that on the North Norfolk Coast (Where Anna &
Ray have a holiday home) is "two coats colder" than anywhere else, at any given time of
the year . [[www.twocoatscolder.com|http://www.twocoatscolder.com]]

''Scarecrow'' are regular favourites at the club and the Folk Festival with a huge local following. The band consists of ''Dave Moore'' (whistle, flute and hummelchen bagpipes), ''Gordon Raitt'' (guitar and bouzouki) and ''Rey Lear'' (bass guitar, flute and whistle). Their music ranges from traditional to contemporary folk with some jazz and blues for good measure! A fantastic combination of instruments which makes for great sounding haunting tunes and a good repertoire of songs which have also been built into their sets. When we knew that they were finally making an album we asked them if they would like to launch it at the club! 
[[www.scarecrowband.co.uk|http://www.scarecrowband.co.uk]] 
 
Adding to the celebrations will be another favourite performer at the club and the Folk Festival, ''Pete Watkins''. Pete’s solo performances are legendary, playing songs from the widest possible range of era’s and styles.
Come along and enjoy the party atmosphere, cake and nibbles! Pete is also an accomplished songwriter.

!!20th April - SSLaP led by Tim Hall
''Jug Collection''
Our SSLaP nights (Sing, Say, Listen & Play) are open sessions for everyone to have a go in a less formal setting. Come along & join in! Tim is a regular performer at these sessions and usually has something up his sleeve to entertain us … a monologue, a poem, a comic song …. And we guarantee that he will not only be entertaining himself but will encourage others to participate.

!!27th April – Special Guest Night – John Richards
!!!Supported by Alkevan 
''Admission -£8/£7 Cons - on the door''
Both of tonight’s acts have been popular appearances at one of our Open Stage Nights and have also gusted at Banbury Folk Festival.
''John Richards'' began&nbsp;writing and performing in&nbsp;his early teens. &nbsp;Over the years he has quietly become one of the most covered writers on the UK folk&nbsp;scene&nbsp;and has been a well respected musician and songwriter from those early days. Songs such as Honour & Praise, The Deserter and If You Can Walk You Can Dance have been covered by some of UK Folk music’s finest professional artists as well as a long line of local singers. John has&nbsp;fronted a number of bands over the years, ''Springheel Jack'', ''The Ivor Smallpiece Big Band'', ''Maurice and the Minors'', ''Desperate Men'', and the ''John Richards Band'' (in various line ups). &nbsp;In the early days the repertoire was mostly traditional and covers but gradually the balance changed and became predominately John's own songs. However, by&nbsp;2014 and after several changes of lineup John decided&nbsp;it was time to&nbsp;call it a day with&nbsp;The JRB's and&nbsp;focus on his song writing. 
[[www.thejrbs.co.uk|http://www.thejrbs.co.uk]] 
''Alkevan'' are a fresh combination of voices and instruments singing mainly original songs written by guitarist ''Kevin Moffat''. ''Alan Harvey'' provides his wonderful main vocals with some driving bodhran, while ''Anne Bowden'' provides haunting flute, whistle and cello. Then put all three voices together for the occasional unaccompanied songs. A treat not to be missed!

!!With Support from DAVE FRY – MC: KEVIN WEST
7.30pm – 10.00pm - ''Admission £8 (All Tickets) on the door''
This is a ticketed event to raise funds for Banbury Folk Festival in October. 

Much loved in Banbury for his enthusiastic performances with ''~ColvinQuarmby'' at the club and festival, and also his appearances at ''Cropredy’s Fairport Convention'', ''Gerry Colvin'' has been creating songs that reflect his vast musical influences and lyrical insight since the early 1980’s. This will be a chance to see him with his new band!

"''Gerry Colvin'' is a writer of great substance who is able to give us something that has been largely missing in English Music for a long time. His subjects and characters are clearly defined and his songs create strong images and stories which can make us both laugh and cry in the same breath. This man is unique and unforgettable. The songs are brilliant. He should be a household name. Go see him." 
 ''Phil Beer, Show of Hands''

We have limited tickets for this event so book early to avoid disappointment – see Mary at the club, message Mary on Facebook at Mary Droscher, or leave a message on ''01295 709881'' to reserve tickets.

<<<
2009.04.31 [1.5.0] rewrote onClickCalendarDate() (popup handler) and added config.options.txtCalendarReminderTags.  Partial code reduction/cleanup.  Assigned true version number (1.5.0)
2008.09.10 added '+n' (and '-n') param to permit display of relative months (e.g., '+6' means 'six months from now', '-3' means 'three months ago'.  Based on suggestion from Jean.
2008.06.17 added support for config.macros.calendar.todaybg
2008.02.27 in handler(), DON'T set hard-coded default date format, so that *customized* value (pre-defined in config.macros.calendar.journalDateFmt is used.
2008.02.17 in createCalendarYear(), fix next/previous year calculation (use parseInt() to convert to numeric value).  Also, use journalDateFmt for date linking when NOT using [[DatePlugin]].
2008.02.16 in createCalendarDay(), week numbers now created as TiddlyLinks, allowing quick creation/navigation to 'weekly' journals (based on request from Kashgarinn)
2008.01.08 in createCalendarMonthHeader(), 'month year' heading is now created as TiddlyLink, allowing quick creation/navigation to 'month-at-a-time' journals
2007.11.30 added 'return false' to onclick handlers (prevent IE from opening blank pages)
2006.08.23 added handling for weeknumbers (code supplied by Martin Budden (see 'wn**' comment marks).  Also, incorporated updated by Jeremy Sheeley to add caching for reminders (see [[ReminderMacros]], if installed)
2005.10.30 in config.macros.calendar.handler(), use 'tbody' element for IE compatibility.  Also, fix year calculation for IE's getYear() function (which returns '2005' instead of '105'). Also, in createCalendarDays(), use showDate() function (see [[DatePlugin]], if installed) to render autostyled date with linked popup.  Updated calendar stylesheet definition: use .calendar class-specific selectors, add text centering and margin settings
2006.05.29 added journalDateFmt handling

!!3rd December – A Christmas SSLaP with Carols led by Kevin Sexton
''Jug Collection''
Your chance to join in in the last SSLaP night in the year! SSLaP stands for Sing, Say, Listen and Play. This is your opportunity to get into the Christmas mood with your own Christmas party pieces interspersed with carols. Kevin is a great traditional singer with a warm personality and we are sure he will set just the right tone for tonight’s proceedings! Carol sheets will be provided.

!!10th December – The Magical Christmas Tree Tour with Pete Morton, Emily Sanders and Chris Parkinson
''Admission £9/£8 Cons – Advance booking advised''
The Magical Christmas Tree Tour is ''Pete Morton'', ''Emily Sanders'', ''Chris Parkinson'' and a tree! Not just any old Christmas tree, but a very magical one. It makes these three unsuspecting folk performers do things they wouldn't do the other eleven months of the year. After four successful seasons touring the UK, this December show is a festive treat, where the audiences pick scrolls from the tree and make every night a unique occasion!&nbsp;&nbsp;This is a high-flying combination: a singer/ songwriter extraordinaire, a superb traditional singer and one of the folk scene’s most sought-after instrumentalists. Pete, Emily & Chris all excel in their own departments. Together they deliver a richly textured collection of vibrant new songs, beautiful old carols and stunning instrumentals – plus all three voices in three-part harmony... and they have a great time doing it. Superb acoustic music!

!!17th December – Christmas Party with Austin Allegro tbc
''Admission £8 (Cons. £7) – inc. Party Food!''
Back by popular demand and very much looking forward to seeing them in our new venue (with no pillars in the way) the ''Austin Allegro Country Dance Consortium'' will once again be entertaining us at our Club Christmas Party. This is becoming so popular that the band has put together a Christmas Hits Album! What will be in store for us this time? Will it be the return of the Cheese quiz? What will Santa have in his sack?  No doubt they will have a few seasonal surprises up their sleeves! Plus the usual Christmas nibbles!

!5th February – Guest Night - ‘The Kevins’ - Kevin O’Regan and Kevin Ward
Exuberant, varied, engaging – those three words sum up this duo who have performed a range of original songs together for some four years. Kevin O’Regan has written songs that are guaranteed to have an audience singing, songs of great wit and modern ballads of extraordinary sensitivity. Kevin Ward plays bass with passion and has a brilliant ability to bring out the nuances of a song’s melody and rhythm. He is one of the finest exponents of the five string fretless bass in the UK. You will be moved and you can be sure of laughter and great choruses.

!! supported by Dave Fry
An exciting new band from the Oxford area! Blackthorn was formed on May 1st of 2012 when Pete Standing (formerly of Spire) met Ian Hall ( electric guitar/vocals), Bill McKinnon (melodeon/vocals) and Sue Mallett (fiddle) and just on a whim asked them if they would like to form a new band fusing British trad music with a rock influence. They were joined later in the year by Ian Clark (drums) and Linda Benton (cello). Their public demo was in January of 2013 and they have since been busy playing at venues in and around Oxford. Blackthorn is not a heavy band but likes to bring the dynamics of both acoustic and electric instruments together to meld the old and new.

!!10th February – Extra Special Guest Night – Ray Cooper (aka Chopper of the Oysterband) 
!!!Supported by Under the Wychwood
''Admission – £10/£9 Cons- on the door- Advance Booking advised.''
Famous as the charismatic cello player in the ''Oysterband'' from 1988 until 2013, the release of ''Ray Cooper’s'' first solo album ‘Tales of Love, War and Death by Hanging’ in 2010 represented a dramatic change of course in his career. ‘Tales of Love War and Death by Hanging’ has a strongly historical theme and was recorded in a small log cabin in Sweden. On the album, Ray played cello, guitar, harmonium, mandolin, mandola, harmonica and kantele to accompany his songs. Ray’s  second album, ‘Palace Of Tears’, released in 2014,  has a distinct Nordic flavour with the inclusion of Swedish fiddles and the Finnish kantele which runs like a seam throughout the album. Born of a Scottish mother and an English father, Ray Cooper grew up in England and started to play in bands when he was 16.  Moving between rock, punk, pop and world music, and working as a singer, bass guitar player and cellist, he finally hooked up with ''Oysterband'' in 1988 and began a long exploration into his own roots.  Ray moved to Sweden in 2000, with his wife and family, and tours in the UK are rare - so don’t miss this opportunity to catch him!
[[www.raycooper.org|http://www.raycooper.org]] 

Ray will be supported by ''‘Under the Wychwood’'' who are  ''Mark Pidgeon, Rod Craig and Lefty Wright'', All three come together when there's a full moon and do strange things in and around the woods of West Oxfordshire.  Mostly musical although it has been said they sometimes sit around drinking tea!
We have limited tickets for this event so book early to avoid disappointment – see Mary at the club or leave a message on ''01295 709881'' to reserve tickets.

''Admission £6/Cons £5 – on the door''
Two very diverse performers from Oxford - ''Pete Joshua'' is an excellent guitarist who pens

lured into the world of electric playing, never forsaking his love of acoustic guitar. Joining
him is ''Ian Giles'', well-known singer from the group ''‘Magpie Lane’''. Ian’s voice is amongst
the finest on the folk scene: warm and mellow, but with great power when required. A
veteran of many folk club gigs and pub sessions, Ian is equally at home with a lyrical
ballad, or leading a lusty chorus song. See what happens when contemporary meets
trad! We are repeating this in our programme as last year Ian unfortunately became ill,
leaving Pete to carry the night on his own!

Chris was born into a musical family in Banbury in 1951. "We made our own entertainment, as the saying goes, in those early days!" A cousin introduced Chris to the guitar when he was eleven and sparked an interest that would never fade. After spending nearly 35 years in various pop, rock, dance bands, Chris came full circle and returned to the 'old piano stool' and for the last ten years, with just Chris and his guitar, he gives his interpretation of the songs that inspired him as a youngster. Chris says, “I play the songs that I like and hope that the audience likes them too!”

The band consists of Dave Moore (whistle, flute and hummelchen bagpipes), Gordon Raitt (guitar and bouzouki) and Rey Lear (bass guitar, flute and whistle). Their music ranges from traditional to contemporary folk with some jazz and blues for good measure! A fantastic combination of instruments which makes for great sounding haunting tunes and a good repertoire of songs which have also been built into their sets.

Dave has appeared at many folk clubs and festivals across the Midlands, where he has built up a reputation as an all-round entertainer, singer, guitarist and raconteur.

''Admission £6.00/Cons £5.00 on the door. Please contact Mary to make advance orders for the Fish & Chips!''

Sharp as Razors have been singing to audiences at folk clubs and festivals both individually and in various groups for well over sixty years. They first got together towards the end of 2009 and had their first public performance at Bromsgrove Folk Club in May 2010.

!!24th June - Special Guest Night with John Connolly
!!!Supported by Andrew Sharpe & Amy Kakoura
''Admission £8/Cons £7 on the door''
''John Connolly'' comes from Grimsby, on the northeast coast of England. He has been writing and singing folk songs for more years than you may care to remember. You might say he is a real folk singer and one that was around in the revival era of the 60's. Indeed, his name appears on Sidmouth, and many other festival guest lists, even earlier than Martin Carthy. Many sing his songs not knowing who wrote them. Many think some of his songs are traditional; particularly his world famous song 'Fiddlers Green', frequently listed as traditional in the credits on other artists albums. Other masterpieces of his include 'Punch and Judy Man', 'Out of Season', and let's not forget his monologue 'Albert goes to Cleethorpes'.  A night with John Connolly will move you to tears of emotion and then to laughter. Not to be missed!
Supporting John will be pianist ''Andrew Sharpe'' accompanying the powerful vocals of ''Amy Kakoura'', both part of the jazz/roots band ''Steamchicken''.

Paula & Stuart have been playing at folk clubs since the early '80s & went on to form their family Band in 2005 when their daughters were just 13 and 10. With gigs at folk clubs and festivals across the Midlands and Home Counties, the highlight being a performance at Fairport’s Cropredy Convention in 2010. Now that daughters Sarah and Kathryn are pursuing their own careers, Paula & Stuart have a chance to perform as a duo again and we are sure they will not disappoint!

!!Wednesday 25th May – Special Guest Night with Benji Kirkpatrick and Janie Mitchell
!!!Supported by Stevie Cooper
''Admission £10/£9 cons.''
This tantalising new duo brings together the beguiling voice of ''Janie Mitchell'' (“The Mary Webb Songs”) and the instrumental mastery of ''Benji Kirkpatrick'' (Bellowhead, Faustus). Performing their own songs on guitars, bouzouki and hammered dulcimer, the pair - from Shropshire - sing of love, loss and longing; but don’t be downhearted: their harmonies and humour will lift your spirits and their dark passion will carry you out of the ordinary into the sublime.  Janie, with her previous duo ‘Beguildy’, enjoyed wide ranging radio play with The Mary Webb Songs, one of which featured on the coveted froots magazine sampler ~CDs. She has taken her voice around the world but settled back in Shropshire where she and Benji hooked up again to write songs together. 
Benji has worked extensively with Seth Lakeman, Maddy Prior (the voice of Steeleye Span) and Oysterband as well as being a stalwart of Bellowhead and Faustus and continues to perform and release albums as a solo artist.  
[[www.benjikirkpatrick.com|http://www.benjikirkpatrick.com]] 
Supporting Benji and Janie will be Stevie Cooper. Stevie Cooper is a familiar face on the Banbury music scene … one of Oxfordshire's most unsung musical talents, who can often be seen playing alongside names like Aurora J Young and The Next Hot Thing. Pianist, acoustic guitarist, songwriter and session musician, Stevie last appeared at the club with 25 Years Late in February when the group supported Andrew Sharpe & Amy Kakoura.

We have limited tickets for this event so book early to avoid disappointment – see Mary at the club, message Mary on Facebook at Mary Droscher, or leave a message on 01295 709881 to reserve tickets.

''£6.00/£5.00 Cons – on the door – Floorspots available''
 Great harmonies, musicianship and loads of enthusiasm! This is the band that played at the club’s Christmas Party last year! Drawn together by the tides of time; Strolling on the shores of creative endeavour. These four musicians of the metropolis gathered together to defy gravity, and play whilst standing up. Inspired by the songs of Alan Rondeau, harmonies flow, solos glow and la musique blossoms like, well, like blossom. Alan’s lyrics cover all aspects of life, from love and lust, to drink and death. Eclectic in style, the music steps gracefully between haunting and lyrical, strides purposefully down the road of rock to the party in the park.

!!1st October – Fabian Holland
''£7/£6 Cons- on the door'' – Floorspots available
''Fabian Holland'' is a contemporary singer, songwriter, and guitarist based in London. Fabian seems to have sprung fully‐fledged from nowhere though he’s been playing music and performing live since a youngster. Folk Radio UK was even more direct in its enthusiasm “He’s not good, he’s bloody good! We can’t wait to hear more!”His music is influenced by folk songs and tales from around The British Isles, together with an upbringing in Blues; this is then enriched with his love of storytelling and his continuing emphasis upon musical improvisation. He now rarely plays the same song in the same way, resulting in every performance becoming quite unique.

Bill’s songs are often about the ordinary things in life, such as disastrous family holidays in his little caravan, recycling his children's toys at a car boot sale to pay the bills and a song about a Mars bar party where people started to unexpectedly take off their clothes. Some of his songs are funny; other songs are serious; However the mood takes him, in Bill’s hands we know we are in for an enjoyable evening.

|Description|Documentation for SaveAsPlugin|
>//Note: This plugin replaces ''[[NewDocumentPlugin]]'' (except for the HTML+CSS "snapshot" features, which are now provided by [[SnapshotPlugin]].//
!!!!!Usage
<<<
This plugin automatically adds a 'save as' command to the TiddlyWiki 'backstage' menu so you can quickly create an exact copy of the current TiddlyWiki document.  The plugin also defines a macro that you can use to place a "save as..." command link into your sidebar/mainmenu/any tiddler (or wherever you like).  When the command link is clicked, a system-specific dialog box will be displayed so you can select/enter the desired target path and filename.
{{{
<<saveAs "label:..." "prompt:..." "filename:..." "type:..." "limit:..."
	quiet replace merge open filter|ask|here|none>>
}}}
//(all parameters are optional)//
*''label:...''<br>custom link text (instead of "save as...")
*''prompt:...''<br>custom tooltip text
*''filename:...''<br>default filename to be shown when asking for an output path/file
*''type:...''<br>a keyword, indicating one of the following output file formats:
**''~TiddlyWiki''<br>(or ''wiki'' or ''tw'') a TiddlyWiki HTML document 
**''~PureStore''<br>(or ''store'' or ''ps'') a TiddlyWiki "PureStore" HTML export file (just tiddlers, no core code)
**''~PlainText''<br>(or ''text'' or ''tx'') a plain text file listing of tiddler //source// content
**''Comma''<br>(or ''csv'' or ''cs'') a Comma-Separated Value (CSV) database/spreadsheet file
**''~NewsFeed''<br>(or ''xml'' or ''rss'' or ''nf'') an RSS ~NewsFeed XML file
*''limit:...''<br>output is limited to the specified number of tiddlers
*''quiet''<br>normally, when using filtering (see below), the number of matching tiddlers is reported and you are asked to confirm before saving those tiddlers to a new file.  Use the ''quiet'' keyword to suppress this confirmation step.
*''replace''<br>overwrites existing output file, if any, without confirmation.
*''merge''<br>merges with existing output file, if any, without confirmation.
*''open''<br>opens the newly created document file in a separate browser tab/window.
*''filter''<br>selects a subset of tiddlers to be written into the new document.  If omitted, all tiddlers in the document are written to the new file.  ''filter'' can either:
**a tag value<br>selects only tiddlers that are tagged with that value.  To select tiddlers based on a combination of tags, you can install [[MatchTagsPlugin]] to construct complex 'tag expressions' using full 'boolean' logic with AND, OR, and NOT operators, as well as nested parentheses.
**''ask''<br>prompts you to enter a tag (or tag expression) whenever you click on the 'save as...' command
**''here''<br>selects the current tiddler (if any).  If the command is not embedded within a tiddler, you will be prompted to enter a tiddler title.
**''none''<br>omits all tiddlers and creates a new //empty// document
<<<
!!!!!Examples
<<<
save all tiddlers:
>{{{<<saveAs>>}}}<br>try it: <<saveAs>>
save only tiddlers matching a single tag:
>{{{<<saveAs "label:create Import/Export starter" "filename:TW+ImportExport.html" ImportExportPackage>>}}}
>try it: <<saveAs "label:create Import/Export starter" "filename:TW+ImportExport.html" "ImportExportPackage>>
save to a ~PureStore format:
>{{{<<saveAs "label:create Import/Export archive" "filename:ImportExportPackage.html" type:PureStore open ImportExportPackage>>}}}
>try it: <<saveAs "label:create Import/Export archive" "filename:ImportExportPackage.html" type:PureStore open ImportExportPackage>>
save to a ~PlainText format:
>{{{<<saveAs "label:create Import/Export source listing" type:PlainText open ImportExportPackage>>}}}
>try it: <<saveAs "label:create Import/Export source listing" type:PlainText open ImportExportPackage>>
save tiddlers matching a complex combination of tags (requires [[MatchTagsPlugin]]):
>{{{<<saveAs (alpha or settings) and not systemConfig>>}}}
>try it: <<saveAs (alpha or settings) and not systemConfig>>
prompt for tag or tag expression each time:
>{{{<<saveAs "label:custom save as..." ask>>}}}
>try it: <<saveAs "label:custom save as..." ask>>
save this tiddler:
>{{{<<saveAs "label:save this tiddler..." {{"filename:"+tiddler.title}} quiet here>>}}}
>try it: <<saveAs "label:save this tiddler..." {{"filename:"+tiddler.title}} quiet here>>

|Description|toolbar command to save tiddler source definition to an external text file|
!!!!!Usage/Example
<<<
Embedded as a macro in tiddler content:
{{{
<<saveTiddlerToFile label:text prompt:text filename:text path:text>>
}}}
or, as a tiddler toolbar command in [[ViewTemplate]]:
{{{
<span class='toolbar' macro='toolbar saveTiddlerToFile'></span>
}}}
where:
* ''label'' //(optional)//<br>specifies the text to display for the command
* ''prompt'' //(optional)//<br>specifies the mouseover 'tooltip' text for the command
* ''filename'' //(optional)//<br>specifies the default filename to create.  You can use "*" within the filename as a 'substitution marker' that will be automatically replaced with the current tiddler's title.    If ''file'' is omitted, a system-specific 'ask for filename' dialog box will be displayed, using 'tiddlername.tid' as the suggested default filename.  //Note: if the tiddler is a plugin (tagged with <<tag systemConfig>>), then the suggested filename will use ".js" instead of ".tid"//
* ''path'' //(optional)//<br>specifies the default folder in which to create the output file.  If the path begins with "./" (or ".\" for Windows) it is treated as a relative path, and the path containing the current document will be prepended to create a full path reference.  Otherwise, the specified path must be a full path reference.  You can use "*" within the path as a 'substitution marker' that will be automatically replaced with the current tiddler's title.  If ''path'' is omitted, the path containing the current document will be used by default.
Examples:
>{{{<<saveTiddlerToFile>>}}}<br>Try it: <<saveTiddlerToFile>>
>{{{<<saveTiddlerToFile label:"save 'txt' file to current folder..." filename:*.txt>>}}}<br>Try it: <<saveTiddlerToFile label:"save 'txt' file to current folder..." filename:*.txt>>
>{{{<<saveTiddlerToFile label:"save 'txt' file to archive..." filename:*.txt path:./archive>>}}}<br>Try it: <<saveTiddlerToFile label:"save 'txt' file to archive..." filename:*.txt path:./archive>>
<<<
!!!!!Configuration
<<<
When {{{<span class='toolbar' macro='toolbar saveTiddlerToFile'></span>}}} is used to create a tiddler toolbar command, the default values for all parameters are applied (e.g., you will be prompted to select/enter a filename with a ".tid" or ".js" extension).  You can override these defaults by writing the following into a tiddler tagged with <<tag systemConfig>>:
{{{
config.commands.saveTiddlerToFile.filename="...";
config.commands.saveTiddlerToFile.path="...";
}}}
<<<

!!17th September – Open Stage Night hosted by Tim Hall
''£6.00/£5.00 Cons – on the door''
Our Open Stage nights have proved very successful over the past few years. They are usually fully booked a month in advance! At the last one we were delighted to a wide variety of acts. Many of these acts will almost certainly have a future booking either at the club or the festival so by coming along to our Open Stage nights, not only as performers, but as a listening audience gives you the chance to preview the acts first. There are only five spots, so if you want to perform in one of them, please book it well in advance on 01295 709881 or e-mail bfest@btinternet.com . Tim Hall will be kicking off the evening and is a versatile performer and usually has something up his sleeve to entertain us … a monologue, a poem, a comic song

!!23rd September – Special Guest Night – Meet Isla St Clair
!!!Supported by Marian Wedley
''£9/£8 Cons – on the door''
As Banbury Folk Club and Festival’s Patron, ''Isla'' is always ready to support Banbury in any way she can. ''Isla'' has a fond following of fans here, having once lived in a neighbouring village. Born in Scotland, ''Isla'' is one of Britain’s foremost traditional singers, noted for the depth of feeling she brings to her country’s music. Although she is widely known for her TV appearances in the Generation Game with Larry Grayson her enduring legacy is her love of traditional Scottish folk songs learned from her mother and grandmother. At twelve she recorded the first of many traditional ballads for the School of Scottish Studies, and which are still used as reference works. Still in her teens ''Isla'' was soon in the top rank of British folk-singers, winning several awards including `Best Female Folk Singer', and touring the world. ''Isla’s'' talent has matured to encompass other aspects of the entertainment business and she continues to be busy with television, radio, stage, presenting and touring in her live shows. ''Isla'' regularly performs at the Folk Festival. This will be an opportunity to hear all about her fascinating life in a more intimate setting.
[[www.islastclair.com|http://www.islastclair.com]] 
Supporting Isla will be ''Marian Wedley''. Marian is a Buckingham based singer and songwriter who can both tickle your funny bone or warm your heart with a song. Her vocal style has been compared to Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell. Marian has been performing at Folk Clubs, local music festivals and private functions and her priority now is to reach new audiences with her own material. She is also part of ''Noah’s Cape'' who played at this year’s Folk in the Courtyard.

!!30th September –Gloucestershire Night with The Vogwells & May Thrill
''Admission£8/£7 Cons - on the door''   
Two great acts who have played at the Festival and at our Song & Ale weekend, but have not appeared at the club before.
''The Vogwells'' are Martin & Emma, a married couple from Gloucestershire, who perform, write and arrange traditional British folk music. Described by fRoots Magazine as having "...strength, presence and character...a definite thumbs up", their music combines traditional lyrical stories and original music played in a full bodied guitar style with stunning harmonies. 
[[www.thevogwells.co.uk|http://www.thevogwells.co.uk]] 
  
''May Thrill'' consists of Hazel Baker on whistle and vocals, Roy Stirzaker & Bill Taylor on acoustic guitars & vocals. Together they deliver great songs, harmonies, music and humour in a relaxed engaging style. Their music is traditional folk based with the ''May Thrill'' treatment, the arrangements have a style all of their own.&nbsp; May Hill in Gloucestershire is their spiritual (and geographical)&nbsp;base and you can always find them on the top of May Hill to celebrate sunrise on the 1st of May with hundreds of like- minded insomniacs.
