GUEST,Swaleman 10th Staithes Acoustic Music Festival (32) RE: 10th Staithes Acoustic Music Festival 31 Jul 12

Hi Mr Happy
On the Saturday for most part there was not one folk song to be heard in the pub. We arrived at about 1.30pm and were told there would be singing at 4 pm ..... then 5 pm. Nothing had happened by 6 pm so we went walkies down to the seafront and wandered around Staithes till 8 pm when we ventured back to the pub but ..... still nothing.So we had a few more drinks and chatted to locals and the numerous but extremely well-behaved dogs. Just before 10 pm. a group of 5-6 musicians came in and introduced themselves and played for about 45 minutes - it was pleasant and very welcome - I think they felt sorry for us. And that was it, a very strange event which belied the title 'Folk Festival' as the banner outside stated!
