Subject: RE: Whitby Folk Week 2016
I saw you in a couple of sessions.
Someone was saying there aren't as many dancers.I think those there are pace themselves - either dance workshops then an evening concert or what I did - other events e.g. story telling, singing, session, half a concert, session, then dance at night.
But in the 80s when we started coming there were enough dancers to fill at least 2 dances in Whitby plus an out-of-town dance at Ruswarp, Sleights or Robin Hoods Bay.
Was saying to my daughter, there are so many Whitbys going on, almost independent of each other.
