Thread Name: So how was Sidmouth 2012 for you?
Subject: RE: So how was Sidmouth 2012 for you?
We went to some of the concerts. The voice squad was the highlight for us with the jazz a close second. The organisation and PA was fine.
I liked the dancing at the anchor -picked up a few tips for my calling.
We went to a session at the Bedford but it was spoiled a bit by some musicians playing too loudly during the singing.   The Swan was better for sessions except for one afternoon when they had a band inside with an over loud base.
I was disappointed by so many stalls down the front selling tat. My memory of the front from a few years ago is of dancing and a few buskers but even more musicians just playing there for the joy of playing. There was not room for that this year.
