concertina ceol whitby folk week 2006 (275* d) RE: whitby folk week 21 Apr 06


well Mo I am probably in the perfect position to advise, I went in 2004 and 2005 before which my last visit was 1988!

I found that things had not moved on very much, the venues seemed smaller, the big bamboo is no more (it burnt down), the metropole is about half the size it was (the front bar is now a bar and a chinese resturant), but at least they have stopped the spa falling into the sea and rebuilt it :-)

As for the acts, the usuall mixed bag of fantastic to plastic, but mostly fantastic. 2006 will be the first year since Malcolm Storey has stepped down from organising so it will be interesting to see how it develops.

In short, it was great to come back and I thoroughly enjoyed Whitby revisited!
