Thread Name: Did they really do that?
Subject: Did they really do that?
Yesterday we were performing at an outside venue, Andrew playing concertina and both of us singing. We both watched as a woman with her programme in hand approached us from the crowd and while I was mid song she asked me where she could find the storytelling venue!!!

We both managed to stop simultaneously - I spoke to the woman and then we we recovered the song exactly where we left off much to the amusement of the crowd. It was at that point the woman realised what she had done and scuttled away rather embarrassed and apologising profusely.

It's happened to us before (the previous time I was on stage and playing whistle) and I'm sure it will happen again. How does everyone else deal with this situation?
