Subject: RE: Whitby 2015 - best places.
I should correct myself, it is not the Swan we have found pleasant, it is the Star. Good session chaired by the Landlord Weds night, although a huge fat beery chap and his shrieking family made life shit for the first hour. But that discouraged the weaker singers, who left, and then he left too. After that 'twas grand until fairly well after midnight. Nice to have a short chat with cujimmy, and a also a chat with a man named after electrical components who took me to the source of the lines that Dylan stole to insert in the Dylan/Baez version of Queen Jane.

Political session was very interesting, and most singing very good, but the chairing was weak and some people went on too long so it took the full two hours to (just) get round the room.

People in the streets with amplifiers, who should be shot on sight on principle.

Still no sign of Mither. I think he must be avoiding me.
