Thread Name: Sidmouth, young and old: a concern
Subject: RE: Sidmouth, young and old: a concern
I've played in sessions all over the place, a lot in Whitby, Otley Cleckheaton, Holmfirth and all local sessions around Halifax and Bradford near where I live, without exception, young people recieve nothing but encouragement no matter what they sing and play.

Some years ago we started a Friday teatime session at The Fleece in Haworth, we pulled in lots of young people, from very early teens to early 20s, we gave them loads of encouragement but actually most of them were very good already, just needing somewhere to sing and play.

I find it hard to believe about Sidmouth.
