Subject: RE: Whitby. Was it always in August?
I'll let you off with an odd year Mo.

Yorkshire Garland were the club band at the Folk Union One and were in fact from Hull. They worked a lot with the late Rita Jewitt / Blood who was responsible for introducing lots of us to traditional dance as well as being the main organiser of FU1 when the Watersons moved on.

Madeleine Hollis is now Madeleine Smith and still teaching at all levels everything from CDM, American and Stepping to Playford.

Exciting times.
