"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.

Black Hawk , the point is that at a singaround you will be invited to contribute, at a music session the musicians will not even ask if you wish to contribute.

Oh dear. I had to ask someone not to play a melodeon in a singaround at the Station the person was clearly singing an unaccompanied song and he insisted on playing along.If it's unnacompanied that's exactly what it says on the tin !! It's all down to courtesy and respect really.

"It is a strange phenomenon that as a singer if you attend a music session you will undoubtedly be ignored by the musicians (unless you are recognised), but if a musician goes into a singaround they will be welcomed and asked to play. Why is this?"

Hmm, is it so hard to figure out? :-)

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.

All this bickering & bitching is precisely why I don't go to festival singarounds & sessions.

On the G;aisdale train run on the Sunday two lads (who have been out with us for the past three years or so) sang a song together called "I must learn something new" does anyone know how I can contact either of them

I attended sessions and singarounds all over Whitby throughout the week, had a wonderful time, made new friends,learned new songs and was sad when I had to come home on Saturday. Cant wait till next year.

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.

Giok - MC Fat will probably be able to help with contact info for Judie.

Vectis - I think you'll find that P&W are more West Midlands than Manchester! Very entertaining, and good harmonies, anyway!

Tom - have you actually read the rest of this thread?? If you look back to the postings immediately after the festival finished, you will certainly see quite a few postings to say that people enjoyed the festival, and felt that it was the best one in several years!
