Subject: RE: Sidmouth Ripoff!
So do I - the sound engineers (people of 40+ with the mentality of small children usually?) maybe think they are not doing a good job or will not be 'noticed' unless they utilise the equipment to it's fullest extent.

It a sort of immaturity - like teenage drivers who just have to show off the full potential of their car, even if it kills them.

OH DEAR, I do sound old these days.

But at least I can still listen.

For what it is worth, I know quite a few good dancers who will not be buying season tickets this year - main reason is nothing to do with the bands or callers (never please all people all of the time!) - just the absurd sound levels in ceilidh venues and lack of space in which to dance.

Look out for lots of event ticket sales to the Blackmore Gardens lunchtime dances - the only place last year where you could really dance and with a proper festival atmosphere.

And I hope Box Office ticket sales for cash will not be attracting a booking fee!!
