"small minded biggots wielding their own particular brand of Anarchy"

This, I think, is symptomatic of everything to do with the Sydmouth threads. Ask a simple question and you are immediately branded biggots and anarchists.

The anti-Sydmouth people almost persuaded me to go to Sydmouth this year. It is the attitude of the pro-Sydmouth folk that has finally put me off the idea.

Frank,

I have never been to Sidmouth, so I don't have anything to miss. But I accept that the regulars feel sad, and some are determined to continue this year. Good - I have no axe to grind, good luck. Like you, I am almost persuaded by the anti-Sidmouth brigade to go there this year. And like Andy, I am frustrated at seeing the same questions again and again posed in this forum (which can give no authoritative answer) instead of being asked of the organisers. The questions are therefore rhetorical, and expect no answer (because none can be given here).

Can you see that this repetitive airing of the same rhetorical questions in such a forum gives rise to suspicion as to the purpose of the questions? I would not call anyone a bigot over this - and I am sure Andy's name-calling is simply the result of his understandable frustration. After all, his original call was simply one for volunteers, but he perceives his thread being hijacked by detractors.

And I for one agree with his perception. Which makes me all the more interested in this year's Sidmouth.

WOW! GUEST,

Round about midnight after a long session at the Drum and Monkey I made a spelling mistake.

Oh Cringe!

But if you're going to pick up peoples' spelling mistakes you should just check your own perhaps.

Jeez. You guys over the pond sure know how to wage a war.

Folk festivals should be friendly festivals.

Sidmouth sounds like somewhere out in Iraq.

"Actually, I thought Steve's sarcastic postings were quite amusing."

Thanks, Lynne. I was worrying that Sidmouth was going to be FULL of people with humour-impairment plus a misery picket on the main road with plackards "Has the Chippy got a Fish License?"

You, I and Lizzie ought to get together for a paddle in the ford and when someone demands to know if we have a license, we'll feed them to the ducks, Ok? :-)))

Steve - Why don't you stop posting?

Your sarcastic comments and constant sniping are doing a gross disservice to those of us who are trying to keep Sidmouth going.

We have enough problems as it is without you adding more.

Far from Sidmouth being "FULL of people with humour-impairment" it looks like Sidmouth will have precious few people this year... and your posts hardly encourage anyone else to give what remains of our festival a chance.

Give it a rest mate.

Paddling in the ford was 'discouraged' several years ago.... someone slipped during the ceilidh and got themselves wet and bruised their 'ego'...

Whose side are you on, Gordon?

We have a continual stream of rhetorical questions implying that Sidmouth 2005 is an unlicensed shamblesm and you say *nothing*.
We have loads of people urging a boycot this year to teach the traders a lesson and you say *nothing*

"and your posts hardly encourage anyone else to give what remains of our festival a chance."

Erm, I really don't think I'm that infuential. Seriously

And if you are part of the organisation, well done for getting the leaflet out with lots of artistes, venues and campsites. It's worth a 1000 times all the "keep positive" spin.

"I really don't think I'm that influential" - Steve Harris

You said it Steve and I hope you're right.

BTW Nice to see the Sidmouth leaflet in my local folk club last night but a straw poll of six people who journeyed to Sidmouth last year showed only one plus myself thinking of doing so again this year.

Sad but true.

"night but a straw poll of six people who journeyed to Sidmouth last year showed only one plus myself thinking of doing so again this year."

Well, given the proposed size of the festival, that's not so bad. You found 2/7 or about 29%. If you'd got 50%, they might not all get into the venues.

Back on thread: It looks like there will be MORE camping space than previous years?

Look, for pity's sake, why can't everyone just stop bickering and let people get on with the festival. I'm going to plead my case here.....

I'm JeZeBeL, who a few of you may know, from Yorkshire, and I'm 24 years old. I thought one of the reasons for having festivals was not just to let people from all over the world have a good time, but also to keep the tradition flowing for the generations to come.

There are few enough young folk musicians, singers etc as it is, so please, if people don't stop arguing over little things like this then that's going to diminish.

Folk festivals are there for everyone to enjoy a good time, play music, sing, dance, do whatever you want. It's an escape from the real world for a weekend, or a week, or even longer, and whether it be a huge internationally renowned festival, or a village trying to host one for the very first time, we should all support it if we enjoy it and try to keep them going for the years to come.

I can appreciate that people may have a few quarms about things such as security and safety etc, but this thread is not the place for it. We have things such as PM's on here and they can be used privately for whatever you want to say. Keep this a friendly, encouraging area, so that when people come along to look at it they can go, wow, i think I'd really like to be involved with that one way or another, rather than seeing everyone fight.

Seeing people bickering like this is one of the things that gives folkies a bad name in a lot of people's eyes, and I knwo I try damned hard to bring them round to how nice we really are, and just how devoted we are to keeping the tradition alive.

I will not be giving up folk music because of this, don't get me wrong, and I would also like to help out at the festival as I love stewarding, purely for the fact of helping people like liz mentioned earlier. I just need to knwo when it is please.

I don't know how my life would be if I didn't have folk music, but I knwo it wouldn't be as rich and enjoyable, and I certainly wouldn't have met as many lovely wonderful people as I have in the folk scene.

Don't spoil that.

Jez xxx
