Thread Name: Sidmouth now?
Subject: RE: Sidmouth now?
2 things -

1) I was doing the lights in the Ham and the sound, though admittadly deadfull in places, was at times a triumph in the face of adversity, and to be honest the downright ignorance and unhelpfulness of certain "folk artistes". If an act is playing on a stage of the size of the ham and with the ammount of technical gubbins behind them, they should at least be aware of what said technical gubbins does to thier performance. I have never seen even the most amateur rock band make such bizarre requests of a sound man..... And yes, the lights were rubbish too but I was distracted, alright (buying Nic Jones pints in return for stories from his fractured memory among other things....)

2) I believe the young lady in the shooting roots concert would be Rachel Unthank for whoever asked.
