GUEST,David Nuttall, Wakefield Wakefield, Sunday mixed folk sessions (121* d) RE: Wakefield, Sunday mixed folk sessions 19 Jan 17

David , Thank you for your observations...the majority of the points you make about the session are already realised and are well documented here and on other social media. I am sorry we may not see you at the sessions in the future.You may have missed much during the time you were sleeping !! I have spoken to others who still seems to think it has potential and is worth persevering there . I would, however , take serious issue with a couple of points you make. I believe the 'populist' material to which you refer may have been chosen because it may have helped to involve the spectators ...many of whom may have been new to this type of live music. I concede that, by its very purpose and nature , it needed to be louder and more expansive than that which we would normally play or sing on a regular basis . Your comment that there were ' individuals repeatedly grandstanding almost for the locals' benefit 'is unfair as they tried to keep things moving along...NOT to hog the limelight but with more popular offerings to involve more people through tunes and chorus songs ...their contributions were , therefore , much appreciated .The pub was, as you say rather noisy and I hope this will even out over time. Thank you for recognising my intentions and efforts to try to keep Folk Music live in the area.
