GUEST,Banjiman UK Festivals changed (97* d) RE: UK Festivals changed 25 Mar 13


Really, Mr Happy?

I enjoy both listening to others and playing myself ....... though being a banjo player I think others probably appreciate it when I do the former.

Out of the 8 on our committee, 6 are players/ singers of a good standard. And no, we haven't given ourselves any gigs at the festival.

The festival we are putting on in Bedale is aimed at the people of the town as well as bringing people in from outside.

Most people in the town don't sing or play. Therefore our focus is on putting together decent quality concerts ..... though of course there is free music in 3 of the pubs, some performed and some informal.

I really think you need to be careful with sweeping generalisations. I'll be at 10 other festivals this year ..... thinking through, most are actually run by people who sing and play.

Why can't you accept that there is room for both formal and informal music? I do!
