Tam the bam fraeSaltcoatsScotland Arran Folk festival (7) Arran Folk festival 09 Jun 03


Hello my name is Tom Hamilton, and I was over in Arran for the folk festival, and to perfectly honest I was a bit disappointed, I mean It was my first time, and I thought it would advertised however it wasn't.
Yes there were leaflets, however I had to find out were there were sessions, the Saturday concert was sold out, and instead of the whole island taking part it was the Ormadle hotel in Brodick, 2.50 a pint.
And during the sessions there, at the begining it was quiet, but after a small while you just couldn't play.
And to make matters worse they decied to make and serve meals, I konw it's a hotel, and they're not a folk club and they have to run a business, but surely they could of had a sepertrate room for meals, and that way no one is disturbed.
Because during the Sunday session, all you heard was someone saying 'the next song/tune will be...' and then eejit heid would come in a shout 'Scampi and chips'. I mean come on Arran Folk festival commitee put a little more effort into the thing or else it will just die.
Tom
PS
A part from that I thought the sessions that I was at were great.
