Linda Kelly Hull Shanty Festival 2012 (112* d) RE: Hull Shanty Festival 2012 20 Apr 12


This is galling to say the least Mick. Especially since the profile of folk music within Hull has dissipated since the demise of the established clubs witihn the city and relies on sessions etc of which you and other friends are founder members-so apart from a recent revival at Pave, I can only think that the other party is an interloper with an eye on the dosh. I certainly have not been approached as organiser of cottingham Live for any feedback or input into a likely folk event-and we have over 25 years experience within the club of running folk music events in the area.

I think it has been hijacked, and it leaves a bad taste in the mouth.One is tempted say let's do another People's festival but it would almost certainly be Hull CC who would be bathing in the reflective glory. Its a poor show for both yours and Pete's efforts over the years. Will be interesting to see how many are attracted to a folk festival which presumably will work to the disadvantage of Beverley Folk Festival-probably not as many as the shanty festival! Anyway we are here if you need us!
