Hiya Hazel . See Nutty's message above . It's not until you open the blue clicky that I fully understood what she has written .
Well spotted Nutty.
The "Events Office" seems to be a "stand alone" Company involved in staging events from the South of England to Edinburgh and their activities don't seem to indicate that they are Folk music (or music for that matter )orientated, which is why (they appear to me) to have not done their homework regarding existing established dates of Saltburn.
If they are a cash-laden Co.they may well have said "F*** Saltburn we're going ahead no matter what" who knows ?.
I may tell readers, Nutty did a Programmed Event at Saltburn - a Workshop on accessing Folk music / and related sites (including things like Mudcat)via the Internet. I never got to speak to her as she was too busy attending to people of all ages in their thirst for this sort of knowledge.
Another direction for Festivals to go, if, and when, resources allow , and an illustration that a Traditional Festival doesn't necessarily mean being stuck in a time warp.
