Subject: RE: Sidmouth, young and old: a concern
lets face it, there are clubs and festivals where they don't ask you to sing. not the end of the world is it?

i remember when the spinners split up, or one of the occasions they announced their retirement. i was saying to Martin Carthy - i had seen them sing the bleacher lass of kelvinhaugh on pebble mill at one - a popular tv programme at the time. and it was nice they performed folksongs on primetime tv, and i would miss that.

he said, i sing that one

and i said, yes but they don't ask you on pebble mill at one.

What i'm trying to say is, we all have places where our skills aren't called on - even the great Martin Carthy.
