Thread Name: Whitby. Was it always in August?
Subject: RE: Whitby. Was it always in August?
Jim's sessions at the Cutty Sark and later at the Yacht Club? were co-hosted by Ken Hughes who until very late in life cycled across the country from festival to festival camping in friends back gardens.
Great singarounds with people such as Rod Shearman, The Wilsons, The Keelers and with festival guests dropping in when they had time.
These were always a highlight of my festival as you didn't need a ticket to participate in the best Whitby could provide (although now totally maritime - the last comment still holds true)
