Subject: RE: Sandwich folk holiday 2011
Of course you are right. Its just not a sit around the bonfire and sing till 3 am sort of organisation. Even when there is a soundproof hall on the site the session will finish by 11. This suits some - not others. I suspect this might account for the lack of young adults - who seem to emerge like bats only after it gets dark.
I prefer to keep instruments and PA gear in the car on a damp night. Its a worry for some that the car would be some distance away. The thought of unpacking it - even just the expensive bits - after mantling and dismantling it once already that evening is not a pleasant thought.
However, Sandwich is still a great site. The more musicians and dancers who turn up the better it will be.
