Thread Name: Sidmouth Folkweek 2015
Subject: RE: Sidmouth Folkweek 2015
Why are the people who keep the fringe sessions going in the pubs, called parasites? Surely they contribute to keeping the pubs and restaurants going. The town of Sidmouth during the festival is heaving, and local businesses must be glad of it. I'm not sure I like being called a parasite; it's a bit rude, actually. The music and song sessions are really worth going to, and are a wonderful source of traditional folk songs, music and entertainment. Not everyone wants to buy tickets to see concerts or even camp.
