About time we had a Whitby festival thread for this year.

I'll be there.

Anybody coming who hasn't been before?

Anybody visiting from across the pond or even further?

Any new acts to watch out for?

Just seen on the website that they are putting on something for young performers. Applications have closed for this year, but it sounds interesting.
If you know any promising younsters tell them to watch out for next year if they do it again.

And they are having noisy Midnight dances in the Spa with a warning to old fogies to go home to bed.

I'm the one who plays a recorder badly and am at the '3 blind mice with one finger' stage on an accordion. Sometimes seen in sessions, Jim goes to the Euro and I sometimes go with him. But we spend a lot of our time dancing.
Must practice a couple of tunes on the purple beast (Weltmeister) for May Cheadles easy session. And maybe even the Euro.
Can't find any good pictures of me on my blog.

Well you've been to a different Whitby to me.
But there are several depending if you sing, play, dance, listen (or drink).
For me Whitby offers loads of opportunity for people who want to DO things, either to learn something new or to polish an existing skill in the company of others who are interested.
So we can dance with more expert dancers than the average club member. Then go to a beginners tune session. And rest for a while in a concert listening to an established artist or one of the up-and-coming Newcastle undergrads.

There are enough different sessions going on all the time in Whitby week to avoid the fast Irish sessions if you wish. Personally I like them all.
Fortunately there will be enough people there for 'concerened' not to be missed. He or she can go and play his/her concerena somewhere else.

Go it, Mo! You tell 'em.

Tim, I had a spell of being made unwelcome at Whitby by a particular bunch of people. It was a bit of an "anti-English and anti-Southern" thing, and very unpleasant at the time, but then one person stepped out of line and was pleasant and i realised that that some of what was going on was just insecurity! Nothing like making someone else "the outsider' to make oneself feel a little more of an insider. Why not give Whitby another go, there are lots of lovely friendly people there.....

In any event as big as Whitby you're going to encounter a few obnoxious people.

I found it a bit harder to deal with when they were acting as event hosts, but there are so many events that even that doesn't matter a lot.

There is a lot of information that you can't get from reading the programme, but the people who have been to that 'strand' of Whitby know from previous years. This may lead to an impression of 'insiders'
E.g. If you go to a Ceilidh in the Spa (OK they call it the Pavillion now) You will have a caller and the dances will be accessible to all (though parents with young children may need to be alert). If you go to an American Ceilidh there will still be a caller, most of the dancers there may have knowledge of more 'technical terms'. If you go to the Irish Ceilidh in the Metropole it won't be all dancing. There will be singers between each 'set'. The dances will be announced but not 'called', so that even if you have done Irish Set-dancing before you will struggle unless you know that particular dance. The Northumbrian Ceilidh in the Metropole is also a mix of singing and dancing, but the dances are mostly the easy sort that everyone can enjoy at a PTA fundraiser - not much room to dance though.
The thing that struck us about Whitby when we first went 30 years ago was the friendliness of the dancers. No time to chat when you're dancing but lots of friendly smiles and eyecontact. Particularly at the Out-of-Town dances - shame they've gone.

Hi Mo,
That reminds me of an experience at a ceili last Whitby in the Spa. We are both experienced, adult, regular ceili dancers, but were made to feel stupid by the caller because we didn't pick up immediately on a term the caller used for a move in the dance. A few terms he used we hadn't heard before, but we were trying!
We coped- largely because the other dancers were supportive- but we had the feeling that they all felt intimidated by the manner of the caller.

It certainly put us off going to any more dances run by that particular caller- how does he get away with it?


Post - Top - Home - Printer Friendly - Translate

Subject: RE: Whitby 2013
From: Mo the caller
Date: 02 Jul 13 - 07:34 AM

I wonder which one? Did he more often call downstairs in the 'dancers dance' section. In which case it's of love him (for his erudition) or loathe him (for rudeness). We avoid him mostly. But all the other 'downstairs' callers have the amazing ability of coping with varying levels of dancer knowledge and keeping everyone happy.
I really envy that, I find it easy enough to call a beginners programme, or a club programme for experienced dancers - both at once is a challenge.
