Whitby Folk Week 2007!/How'd it go?

Brassy Sharman - I think you are missing the point.
A singaround is usually where performers take it in turns to sing, play whatever. If they want others to join in they make it known otherwise others should sit back & listen.
A session is where everyone joins in whatever is being played/sung.
A singaround is usually good for spectators whereas a session is more for the participants. (but applause is appreciated.)
Usually at a singaround everyone is asked in turn (by the 'leader') if they wish to contribute.
At a session you just jump in when ready.
Just my experience - may be different elsewhere. This is always the case in the weekly Whitby singarounds / sessions.
