Not I ...
There's a sensitive balance between encouraging someone who's going to benefit and improve and someone who's a perfect disaster. Ain't easy.
Those who saw it will never forget the Irish lady in the Cambridge club tent circa 1988, who brought on "some friends I met in the Guiness tent". The well-lubricated band hi-jacked her first song with a somewhat extended middle 8(pp 57 - 106 of O'Neill's omitting only pages 86 & 92). As a kind of revenge she attempted all 89 verses of 'The Bard's Tribute to O'Carolan' sung in a deliberate, stately falsetto. The efforts of the poor organiser to encourage, cajole and finally chase her off were classic farce, assisted by encouraging cheers from the standing regulars at the bar.
