Oh dear, this has become somewhat tiresome in that I made a comment which was taken completely out of context. MFAB was run for 20 years by volunteers - none of whom ever profited but were more often than not, left out of pocket. Following the resignation of directors and trustees, due to the festival being financially unviable in times of great austerity, a former volunteer was asked for advice and saw a business opportunity - fair game and no problems with that. Sadly, that business opportunity did not come to fruition and it resulted in details of meetings being made public on this forum and the statement -
"There won't be a folk festival this year as we used to know it - that website is out of date and put up by the old committee who have all resigned. It's complicated! There will be a fringe of sorts and maybe a band or two! There is Ceilidh and Morris planned.
To be fair they haven't had very long to put something together as the committee only threw in the towel a few weeks ago."
It was totally unneccessary to give chapter and verse of those meetings and follow it up with a comment that seemed to offer little hope for a decent festival this year. Now let's put this to bed, once and for all!
