Subject: RE: Sidmouth FolkWeek 2008
Got there at last ,dear ---well done !! Anyway, as WFD says, we had a great time,and managed to have some days out of Sidmouth, ie in Budleigh Salterton, Otterton,Beer, and Branscome. I played a lot in the Bedford, as usual, mainly in the American Old Time Session, and met some nice Americans---- Jeff ,from Boston ( great banjo frailer and singer ) and Rod from Washington, who sang with Ric and me on the seafront. Also nice to meet and play with the Swiss lady and her banjo-playing husband from Penzance---anyone know their names ?? ( I think they"re in a group that plays at Bideford or somewhere). I also played with Doctor Rosie, late of Watford but now of Newcastle University, in the Radway----the first time I have EVER played there since starting to go to Sidmouth in 1965 !! All in all, a great Sidmouth for me/us...... despite the seemingly endless rain !! And the fireworks were really good, too.
