Thread Name: Otley Folk Festival: Who's going?
Subject: RE: Otley Folk Festival: Who's going?
well, I have to say I didn't want for anywhere to have a session all weekend - early evening Friday in the Manor, then a late night session after the open Mic in the Cross Pipes, then the Yeoman on Saturday Afternoon. The Yeoman is a lovely big pub and I reckon you could have got at least one other session going there at the same time (anyone been to the Nook during Holmfirth? you get about 4 sessions at once in if you include the beer garden), then over to the Cross Pipes after some fish and chips - we meant to catch the appalachian session (outside), but just started another in the bar instead, then back to the Cross Pipes for Sunday afternoon.

OK I admit, I was involved in 'running' a couple of official sessions, but in the past we've played and sung in sessions *outside* the White Swan and the Black Bull, a little room in the woolpack, and even on the benches outside the Bay Horse. Where there's a will......


musical highlight for me was on sunday morning - hearing some scottish fiddle music drifting across the campsite and then realising it was FYRISH practicing!
