GUEST,ossonflags Review: beverley fest did you enjoy? (248* d) RE: Review: beverley fest did you enjoy? 03 Jul 03

Peter, you asked for sume support (or otherwise) here it is.

My views on singarounds/playarounds are well known.Having loads of experiance both as a performer/participator and as some one who has had the pleasure of running a few singarounds/playarounds I know how very difficult it is to satisfy everyone who wants a "go".At festivals you have an even harder task as there are more people there and amongst them will be people who you are not aware can do anything.When you have a large gathering of people there will always be some people who feel that they are being excluded.Yes, I have heard the critism at the festival levelled at certain MCs.My answer to those people always is,if you feel you are being left out have a quiet word with the MC when he or she goes to the bar, or for a comfort break and say you would like to sing/play.Trust me it works!!!

Another idea is,why leave everthing to the poor old MC?It is your session,whats wrong with giving the poor person a drag out now and again by reminding him/her that some one hasnt been given a chance? That is something I do on a regular basis.And yes,that works as well!!

So I say poo to the begrudgers and lets have a little positive support for the vollunteers who make an excellant job of KEEPING MUSIC LIVE!!!!
