Good for you Drumshanty! It takes a while to get the paying gigs. Make sure you get to plenty of singarounds and get to know lots plenty of people. Offering to do free gigs can be helpful too. There's some storytelling I had originally offered to do for free for the experience - I've now heard I will be paid for it.
I'm sure if you post on here nearer the time some of the Mudcat posters will point you in the right direction to the singarounds in Whitby, fringe ones as well as official, if you haven't already found your way round them. When I found out about all of these singarounds in 2006 I was like a mad thing. In the morning I would go to the Ship Inn and later I would go to some of the singarounds. Hope to see you in Whitby!
