A very enjoyable 4 days at Sidmouth - clearly didn't see all options
We were made most welcome in the Anchor middle bar, and Royal York singarounds. Folk club session at Rugby club was a joy both to play and listen, short session on prom produced a pound! and our spot at Dukes was, well ignored like everyone else but hey, the sun was out and it was fun.

Seeing the crowded rooms at the Swan, Bedford Hotel etc I'm amazed people survive the duration, a well placed B&B allowed us some 'down time'.

I now have to remember all the songs pasted on.

I now know the Sailing club is not for me, but those present were clearly havin a good time, 'vive la difference' as we say in Berkshire

I always found the Sailing Club great for a morning shower ,as no-one in their right mind would want to use the showers on the campsite !

Most people manage to survive the Swan, Bedford etc , by drinking copious quantities of glorious ale or whatever ,and availing themselves of whatever food (free !) is on offer ; the Bedford scores well on this front . I have often been reluctant to leave a Bedford session, anyway, as one can rarely get a seat again if one leaves !

I am glad that you and Alison enjoyed it , Dave ; I've gone , on and off , since 1965 ! (Even proposed to first wife outside the Black Horse in Fore Street whilst waiting for it to open during one Festival ; 1971 ! ) .

Such a romantic Roger! You sure that wasn't the Dark Horse! Will see you soon maybe.

Reading online updates of Sidmouth whilst at work is surely the road to madness!

Shopping list for next time - good walking shoes, smaller guitar and gig bag - my arms are inches longer.

On the subject of shopping lists, a backpack case for the fiddle is right up there. Also bought a lovely viola, so two instruments to carry around. Right now, I'm sitting in the Ham with freda, waiting for the Spooky Men's lunchtime Big Spooky Thing to start. Saw them the other night and they were brilliant as usual. It was also nice to hear some Aussie voices :-)

Fyldeplayer - it was good to hear you and Alison in the Anchor and Royal York singarounds, and I'm glad you both enjoyed your stay in Sidmouth!

Thanks to everyone who supported the singarounds.

Kitty

My favourite line overheard on the midnight bus from young mum of 2 very young musicians. She was trying to get an old 3 wheel baby push chair onto the bus after unlading its contents onto the 2 young uns' "Only 2 kids but 14 million instruments."

My impression is that traditional music is not under any threat of fading away. I saw so many young musicians and dancers from about 5 years old to 25. The other youth there just for the show were being exposed to the music and some will very likely take a more participatory path.

Look at any quality young performers on the circuit today and it will prob be result of being dragged to festivals, made to rehearse whilst their friends play football and only allowed posters of Seth Lakeman and Cara Dillon on their bedroom walls :-) wish my parents had been like that!

Saw a few young un's on prom including two pipers - amazing.

Oh my aching feet. 4 ceilidhs / day over 8 days. And no I didn't do them all or even everydance at those I was present at.

The Documentary "The Way of the Morris" was amazing. I have never heard such applause for a film afterwards. When I am bored I watch for continuity errors - out of sequence filming etc. I noticed none - says it all.


Bodhran workshop taught me never to enter a room with 30 Bodhrans playing a bodhran concerto. And nothing else.
