Thread Name: Whitby. Was it always in August?
Subject: RE: Whitby. Was it always in August?
I am trying not to keep coming in but almost every posting kicks another memory off.

Clive Woolf I remember well not only from Whitby but also his time in the library at Cecil Sharp House.

A very fine singer - I have some recordings of him somewhere - yet another mammoth task but I am on with it.

Clive P. thanks for the offer which I know you have made previously. I have most programmes but am short of quite a few newsletters.

Chas Lippeat I remember but although he may well have committed the act you mention Dick, I am fairly sure we did not kick him off the team. He just did not turn up one year as far as I remember.

His associate Prof was from the Leeds area and I recall seeing some filming / early videoing that he had done of dance teams at the festival. We all thought they were exceptionally good in capturing the essence of the dances and showing them to good effect. Would be interested to know what happened to that material. I believe Prof was self employed and pressure of making a living sadly stopped him from being at Whitby after the mid 1980s.

Think that covers the latest stuff - should I start on the photographs now ...... or perhaps next month?
