Subject: RE: singarounds Northwest Folklife Festival
Stallion, glad to hear you enjoyed the experience. I was unfortunately (though I enjoyed much of it) volunteering the entire time I was there (all afternoon Saturday and almost 12 hours Sunday) so got to absolutely no music events except the Maritime Showcase (where I was manning the CD vending table). But I did make a portion of the Sunday night singaround at McHugh's, which was great. And I can attest, ollaimh or whoever complained of it, that there were quite a few buskers, and the only ones I heard any action against (and being a gate volunteer I got to hear the staff radio channel) were those playing with amplification, or those playing in such a way as to block ingress and egress or too close to a registered-performer stage, and these latter cases were simply asked to move, not arrested that I could see.
