Subject: RE: Sidmouth, young and old: a concern
Some years ago , a singer I knew from another local club turned up at my club just after August Bank Holiday , bemoaning the standard of MC at the Towersey Barn sing in that they DIDNT get a song and the MC was only asking his mates to sing .It transpired that they had turned up at Nine Thirty on Sunday and the MC (an old friend) was building up the choruses to a finale , and putting people on who had sung earlier , when very few were in attendance - As for 'Only putting his mates on' , The Barn is run on a 'Round The Room' basis , and my Oppo checks round the room who wants to sing and where they are from while a fairly long song is being sung .

So DONT jump to conclusions at a session if you are not immediately made welcome and asked to perform if the session is under way when you arrive
