Thread Name: Sidmouth Festival as it happens
Subject: RE: Sidmouth Festival as it happens
Missed getting to Sidmouth this year - but delighted to find a card in my letterbox this week from a bunch of people from the Irish Songs Concert August 20th, saying they missed me and wishing me well after my heart problems earlier this year. Thanks everyone, and I hope to be back!!
As for the complaint by GUEST,moira(flyingcat) gripe about a performer who seems to have been making a pretty traditional remark in this context, she must have led a pretty sheltered life in folk. There are aspects of that term "professional" which I don't think belong too well in our culture. (As for the comment by Derek, I find that a bit bewildering.)
