Subject: Coronavirus Cancellations

From Peter Shepheard
Fife Traditional Singing Festival
Cancelled: 15, 16, 17 May 2020


I am sure you will have been considering the problems arising from the continuing spread of the coronavirus disease. This is clearly of concern for us as organisers of FifeSing2020. We have discussed the situation and feel there is no alternative but to cancel especially as many of the participants are in the vulnerable older age group. This will be a great disappointment to all but we feel the decision needs to be made now to ensure that accommodation cancellation costs can be minimised and travel bookings are not made.

Best wishes with the hope that we shall all avoid the dreaded virus and have an otherwise enjoyable year.

from Gavin Atkin
Workshop - spring barndance cancelled

We're sure no-one will be surprised to hear that we have been giving the coming coronavirus/Covid-19 epidemic a great deal of thought.

We're very sorry and disappointed to announce this, but we have decided to cancel the spring barndance, having considered the unusual situation, our responsibilities as organisers, the likely low attendance and growing anxiety among the public. Other dance organisers report very much reduced ticket sales.

The sessions at the Castle and the Gun and Spitroast will continue as advertised until further notice, as they are smaller events. Our visiting friend on the 29th March is Mike Hebbert, and on the 26th April we're looking forward to a visit from Will Duke.

There is no official advice yet to cancel events, but public health officials report that the virus has entered the community at large and an epidemic will follow. Their efforts now are said to be focused on slowing the spread of infection so that hospitals have a better chance of coping with those who become seriously ill.

As we are all aware, barndances are particularly energetic public events that involve deep and rapid breathing, often in fairly close proximity, and of course hand-holding.

The next workshop barn dance will be the autumn barndance on the 28th November, by which time we hope the coming epidemic will have passed.

We look forward to seeing some of you at the next workshop on the 17th March. Gavin promises to find some great tunes for the occasion: as usual, two of them will be on the tunes workshop web page some time during the next few days. https://www.singdanceandplay.net/free-english-traditional-tunes-workshops/

The Banjo Mandolin and Guitar Fellowship weekend at the end of March, and
Edinburgh International Harp Festival which was to have been on for 5 days in early April.
Both were to have been on held in the same boarding school premises over the Easter holidays, so it is understandable that the school would wish to avoid any risk to their staff and pupils, especially as thise attending come from world-wide locations.

Before this thread gets too long could we split it to separate country specific threads?


    I see your point, but there are lots of advantages to allowing people to see the entire scope of the problem, so I think that it's best to keep this thread as it is. Mudcatters are free to start country-specific, systematic directory threads to announce closed events. We'll make sure anything announced here is also included in such threads.

INISHOWEN SINGING WEEKEND 2020 CANCELLED.
In light of the ongoing uncertainties around the spread of the Coronavirus, we feel the only way we can help protect visitors and the local community is by cancelling this year's gathering. We are genuinely saddened at having to do this but health is the most important issue in all of this. We hope that you all remain safe and well until we meet again in Inishowen...
Could we please ask you to share this post as widely as possible and contact anyone who you think may have intended travelling to the festival. Your heip would be very much appreciated.

Joe, yes you should cancel. This is how it spreads, and if it is in your community, it is likely that at least a couple of your 20 will be infected but showing no symptoms. Cancel until the virus is gone.

I hope the United States in general, and Washington State is particular will start taking this seriously. It spreads through contact and by breathing the same air, yet we're still having concerts, malls are open, schools are open, restaurants are open. There is no wide-spread testing and no cure, or even resistance to it. Someplace around 3 per cent of those who catch will die, and there is a good chance that almost all of us are going to catch it, and that means several million deaths. I hope I'm over-reacting, but if I'm not, won't all those people look silly, at least the ones who are still alive?

Remember that the CDC is being controlled by Trump the liar, who put Pence in charge. Pence doesn't believe in science, and insists that all announcements from the CDC go though him. In other words, we have no reason to believe anything they say. They both have track records of saying things in public that are the opposite of science and truth.

I fully see the point of keeping this thread global: a friend in New Zealand had been planning to come to one of the now-cancelled events in Edinburgh. She is totally gutted and bereft as you can imagine. Haven't heard yet whether she can cancel her flights or will still come for a coronavirus holiday.
In the meantime, a private reunion of former colleagues is likely to be cancelled: one couple would have been coming from Australia. Oh, and btw, we're all retired medics in our 70s, so if we think it's a bad idea to take the risk, perhaps others should also be taking avoidance seriously.

OPINION
YOUNG AND UNAFRAID OF THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC? GOOD FOR YOU. NOW STOP KILLING PEOPLE | OPINION
A DOCTOR IN WESTERN EUROPE
ON 3/11/20 AT 2:29 PM EDT

I'm a doctor in a major hospital in Western Europe. Watching you Americans (and you, Brits) in these still-early days of the coronavirus pandemic is like watching a familiar horror movie, where the protagonists, yet again, split into pairs or decide to take a tour of a dark basement.

The real-life versions of this behavior are pretending this is just a flu; keeping schools open; following through with your holiday travel plans, and going into the office daily. This is what we did in Italy. We were so complacent that even when people with coronavirus symptoms started turning up, we wrote each off as a nasty case of the flu. We kept the economy going, pointed fingers at China and urged tourists to keep traveling. And the majority of us told ourselves and each other: this isn't so bad. We're young, we're fit, we'll be fine even if we catch it.

Fast-forward two months, and we are drowning. Statistically speaking—judging by the curve in China—we are not even at the peak yet, but our fatality rate is at over 6 percent, double the known global average.

Put aside statistics. Here is how it looks in practice. Most of my childhood friends are now doctors working in north Italy. In Milan, in Bergamo, in Padua, they are having to choose between intubating a 40-year-old with two kids, a 40-year old who is fit and healthy with no co-morbidities, and a 60-year-old with high blood pressure, because they don't have enough beds. In the hallway, meanwhile, there are another 15 people waiting who are already hardly breathing and need oxygen.

The army is trying to bring some of them to other regions with helicopters but it's not enough: the flow is just too much, too many people are getting sick at the same time.

We are still awaiting the peak of the epidemic in Europe: probably early April for Italy, mid-April for Germany and Switzerland, somewhere around that time for the UK. In the U.S., the infection has only just begun.

But until we're past the peak, the only solution is to impose social restrictions.

And if your government is hesitating, these restrictions are up to you. Stay put. Do not travel. Cancel that family reunion, the promotion party and the big night out. This really sucks, but these are special times. Don't take risks. Do not go to places where you are more than 20 people in the same room. It's not safe and it's not worth it.

But why the urgency, if most people survive?

Here's why: Fatality is the wrong yardstick. Catching the virus can mess up your life in many, many more ways than just straight-up killing you. "We are all young"—okay. "Even if we get the bug, we will survive"—fantastic. How about needing four months of physical therapy before you even feel human again. Or getting scar tissue in your lungs and having your activity level restricted for the rest of your life. Not to mention having every chance of catching another bug in hospital, while you're being treated or waiting to get checked with an immune system distracted even by the false alarm of an ordinary flu. No travel for leisure or business is worth this risk.

Now, odds are, you might catch coronavirus and might not even get symptoms. Great. Good for you. Very bad for everyone else, from your own grandparents to the random older person who got on the subway train a stop or two after you got off. You're fine, you're barely even sneezing or coughing, but you're walking around and you kill a couple of old ladies without even knowing it. Is that fair? You tell me.

My personal as well as professional view: we all have a duty to stay put, except for very special reasons, like, you go to work because you work in healthcare, or you have to save a life and bring someone to hospital, or go out to shop for food so you can survive. But when we get to this stage of a pandemic, it's really important not to spread the bug. The only thing that helps is social restriction. Ideally, the government should issue that instruction and provide a financial fallback—compensate business owners, ease the financial load on everyone as much as possible and reduce the incentive of risking your life or the lives of others just to make ends meet. But if your government or company is slow on the uptake, don't be that person. Take responsibility. For all but essential movement, restrict yourself.

This is epidemiology 101. It really sucks. It is extreme—but luckily, we don't have pandemics of this violence every year. So sit it out. Stay put. Don't travel. It is absolutely not worth it.

It's the civic and moral duty of every person, everywhere, to take part in the global effort to reduce this threat to humanity. To postpone any movement or travel that are not vitally essential, and to spread the disease as little as possible. Have your fun in June, July and August when this—hopefully—is over. Stay safe. Good luck.

I think that attitudes have changed rapidly worldwide over the last week. There are so many events that I just hate to miss, that I had planned to take the risk - even though I know darn well things would be better if everybody just stayed away from all crowds.
But events are being cancelled right and left, so the temptation to attend is being removed from me.
Good thing, I think. I've got lots of books to read and movies to watch, and the woods next door are full of wildflowers.

We had scheduled a campership benefit concert for Camp Harmony on April 18, but that concert has been postponed due to coronavirus-related concerns.

And as I said above, we cancelled the monthly Sacramento Family Song Circle until June 12.

More information at the Website of the San Francisco Folk Music Club, https://www.sffmc.org/.

    And note that we haven't split this thread into national threads or whatever. This thread is meant to give people an overview of cancellations worldwide, and not to be a comprehensive index. If anyone would like to start an index thread for an area, go ahead and do it.
    But since this is an international thread, please use names and dates that are universally understandable. I see notices above for the SMG and the TMSA, and I have no idea what these are.

Blue Mountains Folk Festival, in New South Wales, whcih was to have started tonight, cancelled.

National Folk Festival, Canberra, Easter weekend, still hoping to go on, but I must say I'm pessimistic about this.
