Thread Name: Staithes Music weekend
Subject: RE: Staithes Music weekend
Steers Music Fest was mostly ok but was hijacked by geordie "proper singers" with their dullsville historic ditties.The Jazz was cool and if you are a real live music fan, genres are irrelevant. Warbling on about old stuff in an accent only intelligable to Gazza or Bobby Thompson doesn't pass for music to the majority although I concede it does form an essential part of a great weekend but 2011 saw far too much unaccompanied drivel.
Aretha, Dionne,Sam Cooke - now they're PROPER SINGERS
