R. Padgett Whitby Folk Week Aug 20 2005 (167* d) RE: Whitby Folk Week Aug 20 2005 01 Aug 05


The most important fringe event is that in the Tap and Spile, followed closely by the Endeavour

Many Catters attend from all over UK, one of best singarounds in UK for English based song (also Aussies abound) and usual visits from booked guests looking for a good sing!

The Tap normally has Harrogate persons Roy Hardacre and Ray Black and umpteen other musicians; tends to be English melodeons, fiddles and guitars and concertinas whistles etc

The room on the right is infamous; has been inplace 10 years + as a singing venue mainly trad ish unacompanied but not solely. Instituted by me (Ray Padgett + John Booker and Judy Knight aka Lady Alfraeda) Jude now officiates as Mc largely. Landlord/lady Peter and Cherry Fleming very folk friendly and a normal venue for live music year round.

Jim McDonald, Brid Widder, The Ducks to name a few Catters usually around somwhere ~ need some Catters badges (see Saltburn thread also)

Also Hull contingent tend to frequent Endeavour Landlord/Lady Big John and Rose folkies before they took the pub. I have been told they may be leaving for warmer climes sometime ~ Les and Maggie Catters found there normally

These pubs are likely to be heaving due to the loss of the Plough back yard!
