Thread Name: Whitby. Was it always in August?
Subject: RE: Whitby. Was it always in August?
Steve ... are you sure it wasn't Southport Swords rather than Liverpool Sword Dancers (who I have never heard of), and Loftus rather than North Skelton, who were not in existence in 1969, as far as I know.....
Of course, I was at home in Liverpool at the time and you were there, but .....
And Hilary Waterson later moved to Manchester as I knew her there in about 1971 or 2, when Alan Hodson organised a visit from Hull folk people to Manchester university folk song society (of which I was secretary). It was I think Lal and Mike, Jock Manuel and Jim Eldon. She's now in Australia, so Norma tells me.
