Subject: RE: Sidmouth, young and old: a concern
I've never been to Sidmouth but I have been to Whitby a few times. I can imagine somebody having Anon's experience, but only if they were a singer. Instrumentalists do tend to sort themselves out into groups doing different things, but there isn't a lot of aggro. On the other hand there are very few younger singers at all - certainly none with the student-virtuoso pretensions complained about above - and the singarounds I've looked into or attempted to take part in have not been welcoming to strangers of any age. Arriving in a squad of at least three might help. Or maybe there are exceptions I've missed.
