Thread Name: Otley Folk Festival: Who's going?
Subject: RE: Otley Folk Festival: Who's going?
Yes you are right Gerry, but, a lot of people go to sing and play in sessions, and these were very thin on the ground on Saturday afternoon, the trouble with Otley is [ and I love this little market town ] it is short of venues, pubs are the natural place for sessions but when there is a band on a session would clash, in previous years I can remember sessions in [ almost ] every pub in the town.

So your solution is for the organisers of this folk festival to organise it somewhere else where there are more venues so the people who (probably mostly) aren't purchasing tickets for the festival can go and have a good time.

At a guess I would say it is unlikely to happen.
