Jack's Rake Where are the youngsters? (154* d) RE: Where are the youngsters? 25 Aug 12


Selby, I wonder if you were at the same festival as me...

I witnessed a girl of around 18 being shouted at, very publicly, by a much older man for singing more loudly along to her friend's song (to which she obviously knew the words) than the song sung by someone else immediately before.

Still, some level of inclusivity was demonstrated because I (definitely not a "youngster"), too, was slated (slightly less publicly, granted) by a gentleman who, while he was singing a loud, joiny-in song, took umbrage at my replying to a "youngster" quietly telling me the key of some tunes she was about to play.


Having said that, this festival was crawling with youngsters both taking part and listening and the vast majority of the oldsters were not at all like the two mentioned above.
