Surreysinger Sidmouth Folk Festival 2014 (92* d) RE: Sidmouth Folk Festival 2014 30 Jul 14


Guest Guest .... as Kitty said! The collecting tins are passed around in the Volunteer every day, and as far as I have ever noticed everybody usually makes a donation. The Middle Bar singers usually go all out as far as I am aware, and consistently make a fair bit of money for the Festival.

As far as the original guest's request about Sessions, please note that, despite what Mr Red has said, the lunchtime events at the Volunteer are NOT sessions/singarounds. Singers are invited to take the floor by the co-hosts of the day (normally George Frampton and AN Other),and quite often include festival guests etc, and music is provided by the designated "pit band" of the day.Doesn't mean to say that you don't get the chance to raise the rafters in chorus singing every now and then though! The evening events at the Volunteer (assuming that things are proceeding as they were two years ago (I haven't been able to go for that long, boo hiss)are of a more participative mixed song and tunes nature.Looking forward to getting back to the Volly for at least one session next week on the Friday. Hope you find what you are looking for guest!
