Polite Guest more session rudeness (415* d) RE: more session rudeness 16 Jun 08

From you:

"We didn't refuse to let anyone play. The original rant on which this thread is based stated that the guy in question walked out because he didn't enjoy our music. We never refuse to let anyone play with us..."

No, perhaps you didn't refuse, but from what we are hearing, the person concerned felt unwelcome. I wasn't there, so I don't know for sure, but there doesn't seem to be much "Hey, we're sorry if you felt that way, it was never intended!" going on.

It's not YOUR music, it belongs to all, particularly in sessions. He had as much right to feel able to join in, as you were having fun, playing. Read Barry's erudite post, it says it all. You perhaps need to simply brush up your skills in welcoming people. It means an awful lot to make eye contact, to have a smile given your way and a warm welcome extended. And it costs nothing.

We see folk the same way we see swingers partys... the more the merrier."

Ah well, that may explain a lot then. Swingers parties are frequented by those who don't give a damn about others, love 'em and leave 'em, use 'em and abuse 'em. Give us yer keys, hey you'll do, any old body will suffice"

Nope, that ain't folk me young shiner!

It ain't love either, but I'm sure you'll tell me it's fun.

I'll pass though, if you don't mind. I'd far rather be listening to my new Oysterband CD - 'Meet You There' It has far more sex in it than any Swingers Party!

And hey, one day, maybe I'll meet you there, down in the moshpit, where you'll find that all the ol' folkies can jump far higher than you and boogie on down with the best..

Remember, Oysters fans never grow old...they merely sparkle, ever brighter...

Now get your cheeky butt back out into the folk world, and set it on fire, with your new found ideas, and let's see you and your pals working your way up through the festivals, with the right attitude!
