GUEST,Noreen Whitby 2013 (215* d) RE: Whitby 2013 02 Jul 13

Yes Jack, I understand that- I was brought up on Irish ceili and set dancing, graduated to English barn dances and ceilis at Uni (Sheffield Uni had freshers ceilis in every Hall- wonderful!)and subsequently played for them, then excellent ceilis at Towersey, Warwick and previously at Whitby- and a bit of Contra dancing in America.

Perhaps the caller wasn't aware that the terms he was calling were not a universal language? That was certainly the impression he gave- that anyone not understanding was stupid. Definitely NOT fun.

Sorry to be negative though- everything else about Whitby festival is thoroughly enjoyable: singing, playing, dancing, fish and chips, concerts, pie and mash, clifftop walks, trying out and nearly buying new instruments, afternoon tea at Elizabeth Bothams, manic morning workshops, meeting up with friends old and new...
