"Pity your enjoyment was marred by us NON 'proper' singers (whatever a proper singer is)."
One who has the guts to use a name when picking an arguement?
Also it is very difficult to maintain a dialogue on here with any one except those who can be arsed to join in.
Welcome as you have now found the time and inclination.
I enjoyed all the music and singing that I managed to hear in the pubs,in the street,in our tent and in the hut later on.
Met loads of great folks and enjoyed the comments re my own efforts as they were mostly kind and generous.
I enjoyed being allowed to get me bodrhan out and join in a bit with the Guys from the Twa Dogs .
Had the priviledge of a guitar lesson from Dave who played a Davy Graham classic beautifully.
Laughed till I ached thanks to Mr Leonard and his funnies.
Bought cds and still play them when I get the chance.
Learned how to play with two fingers with another great bloke who I think was called Martin.
Met a lady Bass player who made us welcome among her many friends.
(and let us play at a club she MCs in Stokesly and Guisbro on other occassions)
Heard Ian and his lovely Lowdon box for the first time.
some great whistle playing,fantastic dialect songs and generally had a whale of a time.
Carol sang some great songs as did many others who I never learned the names of.
But then I didnt have the priviledge of hearing them again yet as we did with Carol.
The late nigths /early mornings in the hut were brilliant and the weather was mostly excellent.
I hope to have as much fun this year too.
As I am sure the rest of the attendees will too.
