I’ve always been impressed by those ‘professionals’ who get down to their local sessions and take their turn in a singaround with the rest of us. It’s one of the things that makes ‘folk’ special to me (and, yes, I’m sure there are plenty of other genres that it could be applied to as well.)

I was at a really excellent song and tune session in the village of Partridge Green in Sussex a couple of weeks ago. The 40+ people there packed out the room. Martyn Wyndham-Read and Iris Bishop were sitting quietly there - but they only got their two songs along with the rest of us.
