GUEST,Kate C Sidmouth Festival as it happens (95* d) RE: Sidmouth Festival as it happens 11 Aug 11


Don't do it Moira FC!
A festival organiser asking the audience to snitch on a performer is not only unethical and censorial, it is, itself, unprofessional. No-one else here has complained about the performer - despite many knowing who it is - and why not? Because it was harmless. And because LOADS of performers were doing it. And because, as Richard Bridge rightly says, loads of performers have always done it. And most any folk performer will tell you that they've been inspired by late night sessions (and the kind of artists whose spirit drives such sessions).
It's a sad indication of the conservatism of the scene that this is even being discussed, never mind pursued.
Shame on you Sidmouth.
