I'm repeating myself from a distant thread....but ....Nutty ran a Workshop at Saltburn. Finger in the ear stuff ?? Not quite.
It was " Accessing folk music via the internet" with more half a dozen pc's set-up for individual "tuition". She was as busy as hell and I know for certain that introductions to Mudcat were high on her list.
I think it might be a case of some people like the big occasion / stage thing , whereas some of us are a bit more paroachial / want to join in / put some time aside to talk to old friends.Last year at Saltburn, Wendy Arrowsmith got a chance to shine , and shine she did, but I feel she would have had less of a chance at the bigger events , but Vive la difference.
