Thread Name: Hull Shanty Festival 2012
Subject: RE: Hull Shanty Festival 2012
Just to clarify - I don't mean for an instant that Shanty jack wouldn't have fought with all his heart to keep the event going - even in a lessened form - as long as he felt it still had 'heart' and 'integrity'. But I don't think that he would have been prepared to continue to try and keep himself involved once he felt that it was being pulled in a very different direction - the shanty element would soon become subsumed and Pete loves the music too much to let that happen and continue to be associated with it.

Sometimes, the last bit of control you have in such a situation is to take yourself away from it
