Thread Name: So how was Sidmouth 2012 for you?
Subject: RE: So how was Sidmouth 2012 for you?
I have filled in the feedback form, though it gives too much space over to Headers and questions. I'd like to see at least half a page given to feedback . I note that the workshop questionnaire's are two to a page, and suggest using the other side for comments . Perhaps seperating the feedback sheet from the newsletter might be better. I went to one concert at The Ham, "The Pauper's Path to Hope", which was exremely good. The rest of the time was spent at Fringe venues. The best one for me is The York and Faulkner for its variety, its friendliness, its humour, and its reasonably priced beer. Also enjoyed the Newt sessions, and the Middle Bar, when not drowned out by the muzak in the garden. Did not get round to doing Duke's open mic. but we don't cover Wonderwall. Made a point of going around the back of Duke's of a night time to avoid the crowds, and the noise . When will soundmen learn to use p.a. systems properly ? Thumping bass is not good sound. The quietest spots were to be find along the riverside . The seafront is hopeless to play on during the day . Too many amplified buskers !
