Giok - the so many kids, so few chimneys t-shirt was worn by Judie Knight (who sometimes drops into Mudcat as Lady Aelfleda).

Raggy -   According to the Bedworth festival website, Neil Parker and Paul Watts have their own website, http://www.folkfax.net/locals/parkerw.htm, although I have to say that my attempt to access it just failed. I suggest you PM MalcBedworth or send an e-mail to mail@bedworth-festival.info (rather than Vectis' suggestion of Claire Penny, who is coping with Roger's illness and isn't a Catter, as far as I know). Parker and Watts have frequently appeared at Bedworth, and are booked again this year.

Brassy Sharman - I think you are missing the point.

A singaround is usually where performers take it in turns to sing, play whatever. If they want others to join in they make it known otherwise others should sit back & listen.

A session is where everyone joins in whatever is being played/sung.

A singaround is usually good for spectators whereas a session is more for the participants. (but applause is appreciated.)

Usually at a singaround everyone is asked in turn (by the 'leader') if they wish to contribute.
At a session you just jump in when ready.

Just my experience - may be different elsewhere. This is always the case in the weekly Whitby singarounds / sessions.

"I cannot understand why musicians should really need to be totally exclusive."
Well said Ray! The best sessions I went to at Sidmouth were the traditional ones in the evenings in the Volunteer, hosted by Ken Langsbury and Roger Grimes. They consisted of a mixture of tunes _and_ songs by turn. The musicians in question were mostly singers as well, and therefore thankfully unaccompanied singing was just that, and everybody was duly appreciative of each others efforts - it was NOT performance, but a sharing... and a really enjoyable evening was had by all.

The music is played primarily for those playing it


What a pity that you cannot understand that bystanders love to hear your music too and why shouldn't they applause?

I cannot understand why musicians should really need to be totally exclusive. Sessions I have attended will often give way to singers

However too music pub noise will put singers off key, if not accompanying themselves

Why do musicians feel that they are not part of the social fabric which encompasses song?

you have hit the nail on the head some people are very serious and   decidedly noninclusive as well as being unnecesarily abusive.Official Lead Sessions & singarounds may well have customs & practices as set out by the leader - spontaneous pub sessions/singarounds should be just that.

Well said - there is real distinction between singaround and session - perhaps what distinguishes them is the element of 'performance'. In my experience, singaround is more about performance, with lots of 'shhushing' going on and applause given (and expected). A real session is more inclusive, yet without the element of performance (although the occasional rogue 'show-off' can pop up in a session!). The music is played primarily for those playing it, and applause is not common, certainly among the musicians.

Umaccompanied singers do not have to sing in your bloody standard keys necesarily! You make sure your guitars are tuned right and you play together nicely, ok

Keep off unaccompanied singers, snigger all you want just don't try to join in!

funny but some musicians feel exactly the same about off key singers 'joining in' in F and five eights or G and a quarter and trying to pull the musician off key. Personally I just like to see everybody enjoying themselves rather than just a few playing/singing at what they may consider to be some sort of concert standard and will happily try to adapt playing to any 'uninvited' (in a session!!!!!) singists. Or should we all be permenantly po faced and deadly serious?!!

If it's a song then people can join in with voices and sing in the chorus. For a guitarist to try to identify the key by noodling and then plonking away with chords that don't fit if they don't know the song is very off-putting to the lead singer and anybody else who wants to join in with voice/harmony. Tunes are easier because you can usually identify the key straight away by where the melodeon playher has his/her fingers or the guitarists their capos and chord shapes.

I agree with Vulgar Boatman's "but", but I'm afraid it's not just happening at Whitby. There seems to be a declining standard of behaviour in singarounds and sessions everywhere one goes at the moment. I do wonder about the merits of having an organised session with booked leader(s). I was particularly P*****d off by the guitarists who insist on trying to accompany solo unaccompanied singers by noodling around until they find a key or, more usually, driving the singer into a key they hadn't intended. Saw/heard this happen more than once. If somebody wants to sing unaccompanied let them do so. If they want accompaniment they will say - this is in the key of X, please join in.

I had intended to leave the CHARM concert 30 minutes early to make sure I got a seat for George Garside.
I couldn't tear myself away; 'leaving early' became 'gathering up my belongings and standing near the door in the last intro, sprinting out of the Met as the last chord died away, and running most of the way to Middle Earth' (which wasn't as crowded Wed as Sun, fortunately for me).

The fringe still working well and some of the best singing around

There needs to be outlets for all abilities and there are some excellent singers frequenting the fringe events

The songs and singers continue to evolve which surely is what the living tradition is all about

WFF week obviously needs to make a profit or cover its costs to exist, the folk community is very wide indeed and there are very many unsung heroes who work without due reward in mundane roles

Stewards and organisers coffee makers programme sellers ticket/money collectors fetchers and carriers etc

Folk singing dancing storytelling playing instruments is all about participation and people will gravitate to their own needs and aspirations

Long may it be so at Whitby FF week

Quite agree Surreysinger, we thought it one of the best for a few years. Our 33rd Whitby and we did mostly concerts and particularly enjoyed Viv and Vic Legg, Grace Notes and The Wilsons.

And when the Young Coppers arrived on Tuesday they gave the place a real lift. They were absolutely excellent and "keeping the family tradition up" as well as enjoying themselves at there first festival on their own.

Not too much change needed.

I tend to worry when I hear people discussing "exciting ideas and plans". Whitby this year was by far my most enjoyable festival/event of the year. (In previous years it was always the National - sadly now in moribund state) Discussing it on the train on the way back home we were all agreed that it's relaxed atmosphere, and the intimate and informal venues were what made it the most enjoyable for us. I don't tend to enjoy the "concert" type of event, although I'm aware that there are many who do. As a singer, what made it really enjoyable for me was the opportunity to see traditional singers of the quality and sort that you wouldn't normally see at other large festivals, and to indulge in singing opportunities that they don't tend to support either. Hopefully they won't set about changing things too much - it would be a shame to lose it's flavour and charm. However, that said, the organising team are, as far as I'm aware,traditionally inclined, so I'll keep my fingers crossed and wait to see what happens .....

We had a lovely week.
At the Con club, where something always goes wrong, this time I was missing an instrument (left it in the car) and had to play a tune set on the wrong melodeon but it worked out fine.

CHARM had the best audience we've had yet. Thanks everybody who came along to support that, and all those who said nice things afterwards)

The Dan Quinn all stars ceilidh was huge fun, and it was a bonus that the dancers enjoyed it too, and even said the band sounded good. Totally unrehearsed of course.

And I'm slowly getting used to the idea that (at least some) people like the way we run tune workshops, as I've lost more sleep over that than anything else at recent festivals.

Whitby is going to change next year, I'm told. This year's was the first without Malcolm Storey in charge, and the new organisers were learning how it works. They've got exciting ideas and plans - no, I wasn't told any details....

With over 600 events, with all the will in the world it's difficult to get to more than 35 in a week.
What we did manage and enjoyed thoroughly were Mike Waterson & Louis Killen, for all the reasons mentioned before, and isn't it amazing how many songs MW has actually written!; the Nortumbrian Ceilidh, especially 422, and those young clog and rapper dancers who were immaculate. Con O'Driscoll (is that haow you spell it?) and his remarkable songsm especilally the lament for his dog's b****cks, it's amazing how many different rhymes and euphemisms he squeezed out of one (two?) subject.
And the ABBA ceilidh!!!

Sorry we missed you Giok, Emma and Severn, we must have been in the same vicinity together at some point.

We missed the finale this year as we had an elsewhere first thing thing the next morning 200 miles west, but we did get there in time to see the tremendous Michael Marra for the first time when we got there.

Here's to next year

'The Beautiful Muff' is a very old song. Copies of the broadside circa 1850 can be found in the Bodleian Museum collection - HERE

Maggie does sing the song extremely well with just the right amount of pathos, so that you are not sure if the double-entendre is really intended.
