That would be great, but I can't see Richard taking that on - I think he probably has enough to do! I think there are quite a number of B&Bs and guest houses in Scarborough that aren't expensive though, especially as people don't have to pay to attend the festival itself.

As to your first para., I think that's already happening. I suspect quite a few do it for accommodation only or something of that sort. I think the Council already get quite a lot for not very much on the music side of things, although I don't know that for certain. I suggested before that collecting boxes wouldn't come amiss, but I wonder whether the Council like to be seen as providing something 'for free' to the visitors, or even to the locals?

As for artists I am sure there are some who would do it just to be showcased and would settle for expenses, although there are issues with people trying to make a living and the council "getting summat for nowt", it might be explored.
As to getting more "folkies" in to Scarborough there isn't any suitable camping for miles, I did think about the car park on the hill above the North Bay but the security issues make it a non starter. There are campsites but they are three to four miles out of town. Having said that there can be some cheap deals in guest houses and it might be possible to sign a few up and have "allocation on arrival". That would require a degree of organisation and the whole Festival jacked up a level. I can make enquiries and see if there is any interest from the local hoteliers.

Certainly I agree, Helen, as I think I said back in a post some days ago. And sure, the not so good spots are the luck of the draw. And the Anchorage is a really good venue, and quiet too, but still with Joe Public in there. It's a really good chance to get through to non-folkies.

I think the venues do have to be near the West Pier, simply in terms of the performers getting from one venue to the next in double quick time! And because people should be able easily to dip in and out of the different venues as they wish.

I'd really like to see more folkies there as well as the public though.

Peter, I think your point about the Council dipping further into their pockets for a proper marquee is a bit of a forlorn hope, although undoubtedly a good idea - just an open-sided one would work, just so that the audience don't get rained on, but still feel the freedom to come and go with ease. A larger budget for performers would make life easier - six or seven different venues in one day is really a bit much for one act to do! More performers would allow a bit more time for us to support other performers too.

There are but not on the Harbour side, I think one of the attractions of the main stage is the fact that it is on the Fish Pier, it would be better if the council dug into it's pockets and got a proper marquee, the first two years it persisted down most of the time and it wasn't fun for spectators. last year the "Seaman's Mission" was used for a singaround and I thought it would be an ideal venue but for the fact it was a "cups of tea only" venue. The first year was a bit of a battle in some of the pubs, I was only a spectator and it annoyed the hell out of me that I couldn't hear some of the performers, last year it was a bit better and this year, although I only caught the back end on Sunday afternoon, it seems to have improved again. Truth is, all the proprietors on the sea front want to pack the punters in to make money (and why shouldn't they it is a short season) so although pubs like the Golden Ball who have a usefull sized room, which could be set aside for the sea fest use, they would rather fill it with families drinking and eating. There are one or two places up town, near the Railway Station, that would probably do nicely but a bit of a trek from the main stage. oops,just thought, our old school gym is still there and doesn't look as if it has been used for ages, that is just a spit from the harbour. I'll check it out.

Sorry Barbara ... I did say largely eliminated, not entirely! Steve & I did the Turks Head last year and had the same experience - a bad patch but some really enjoyable periods too. And about 3 years back I remember singing in the Leeds Arms on the Saturday night: I stood on a table and belted out Mary Ellen Carter at top volume and still couldn't be heard a few feet away, yet this year I was able to sing a couple of very quiet, restrained ballads in my set (same pub, same time) with no problems at all.
Still, all in all a good festival, don't you agree?

Ah, but you, Helen, were lucky enough to be in the Leeds Arms rather than the Turk's Head on Saturday night this year! :-) I won't say that the latter was unworkable, but it certainly wasn't easy!

Just to add my comments to those of Captain Birdseye and BB - the weekend was really enjoyable, especially the Leeds Arms on the Saturday night and the ballad session in the Cadets Hall on Sunday morning. Matt Armour also presented a very enjoyable concert of his songs in the Cadets Hall. Seafest has suffered over the years from a few pubs which were unworkable on the saturday night (trial and error in the first couple of years), but that has now largely been eliminated as a problem. The Anchorage, the Cadets Hall and both Leeds (Arms and Hotel) are all smashing venues, and Steve and I also had a good spot in the Lancaster. And every time I was near the pier and the main stage it seemed packed with people enjoying the entertainment.

Congratulations to Jim on winning the song contest. I was unable to see the competition as I was singing in other venues while it was being held, but his contribution to Saturday night in the Leeds Arms (and at other times) was very much appreciated.

As has been said already. If you are thinking of booking for next year's festival, do so. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Sorry, Stallion - I can't comment on Richard's booking except to say that there was a very full and varied guest list and I guess there can't be room for everyone. He has always seemed very open to local artists to my mind - Anna Shannon, making her festival debut, is from Scarborough I think, and Dogwatch, the Young 'Uns, the Endeavour Shantymen and Steve & I are all from Teesside. But bringing Stormalong John, Les Pirates (Brittany) and Armstrongs Patent (Holland), to name but a very few, to the festival creates an opportunity for locals and visitors alike to hear a good variety of performers.

Anyway, roll on next year's Seafest!

Helen.

Thanks, Essex Girl. I'll try to remember his name in future. The win certainly seemed popular with the audience.

Dick, we did, but mainly because we went to our daughter's in Northamptonshire for a couple of days - went home via the M5 on Tuesday evening, and our road was fine, but there were obviously immense problems off the motorway. I feel so sorry for all those affected - including the farmers, for whom there will be no insurance for loss of crops, etc. Terrible!

Sorry, that's all off topic, isn't it? Until the sea creeps up on all of us!

I don't think I even knew there was a poetry competition! I caught the last half hour of the song comp. (It overran and we were in there next.) The standard seemed really high, and it was won by Jim someone, whose last name I didn't catch, but it was a song about the Normandy landings. A thin guy with grey hair in a pony tail - good singer, and a very poignant song.

hi,Barbara,firstly I would like to thank you and Tom,for doing an excellent MCing job on Friday. as you know I was suffering from late planes,and an organisational gremlin,that gave me added stress[a rogue E mail that I received just as I was   about to leave, changing my accomodation,which on closer inspection[[after the event]] turned out to be from the previous year].
Richard never informed me about the mass shanty sing,and as my voice seemed to be in good form,my earlier spots had been easy compared to some peoples,I went for it,and was luckily fine the next day.
With a festival like this,The pub sessions can be un predictable,much depends on folkies turning up and joining in chouruses,which seemed to be the case most of the time this year,.
Also,there did seem to be, quite a large proportion of holidaymakers who were interested.
I thought the festival was better than last year.

Barbara-

Thanks so much for your description. It gives me a much better picture of what was happening. It probably works even better for the insiders! I try to do the same with the Mystic Sea Music Festival here in the States and some of the other events I and my group perform at or attend that I think folks from away might be interested in.

Saving one's voice for the performances is an important priority, given the number of opportunities there are to wreck one's voice in a noisy pub session. And there is always the temptation to sing just one more!

Clearly such concerns do not apply to the intrepid Captain Birdseye.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Charley, I wouldn't say that pub gigs (without PA!) are my favourite places to sing, but the responses from those present (mostly non-folkies) were generally excellent - and that wasn't necessarily using particularly well-known or rousing songs. The atmosphere at the festival really is friendly and welcoming. There was a good variety of performers and styles, and there were none that I saw that were of less than good quality.

There's a real ale tent on the West Pier right by the main stage, all the venues are within easy walking distance of the Pier (unless you're carrying very heavy instrument cases!), and the festival costs the punters nothing - what it costs the rate-payers of Scarborough is another matter, but presumably it brings in some holiday-makers, which is why it's funded by the Town Council. Personally, I think it would be worth their while to have collectors out amongst the large audiences for the Pier shows, and perhaps in the pubs - but that's not up to the likes of me.

Stallion, I'm not going to make any guesses as to why you're not taking part, as I don't know you (I don't think) and I'm not party to the whys and wherefores of Richard's booking policy. Maybe if you got involved in some of the open sessions, it might be worth your while. If those running them like what you do, they'll probably tell the powers that be, and maybe in the future you'd be on the bill. I know Richard was on a very tight budget this year, which I imagine is why Hughie Jones wasn't invited.

Dick, that spontaneous session sounds like just what we could have done with, but after our Leeds Hotel spot, we went down to the Pier for the massed shanty sing, as our glorious leader requested. Or rather, Tom did - I think if I'd sung much more that day, I would have had no voice at all on Sunday!

We really did have a great weekend though, as did everyone we spoke to late on the Sunday. Tom's right - book for next year now - that's only your accommodation though, don't forget. The rest is FREE!

Saturday night in the Leeds arms,after we had finished our booked performances,myself, HelenPitt,Adrift,TheYoungUns,Had a spontaneous singaround,it was mighty,that was my highlight.
I also enjoyed the anchorage club,played there twice,and both times the audiences were interested and joining in choruses etc.
I only had one short spot on the main stage,which is probably the best venue,.
It seems Scarborough was lucky with the weather too ,Sunday afternoon was very pleasant.

Steve & I got a copy of the programme yesterday and it looks really good. If anyone is coming down the weekend starts about 8,30pm friday with events in the Leeds Arms, Leeds Hotel (Yes, they are different pubs!) Turks head and a few others. The song writing contest is on Saturday, with the winning song to be performed on the big Saturday night concert on the West Pier. There is a ballads and song session on Sunday Morning in the Sea cadets Hall (I'm hosting that one so I'll be really pleased to see anyone who fancies coming down. Start time 11am.) Matt Armor is doing a presentation of some of his songs which I'm really looking forward to, which follows the Ballads singaround. He will be joined by several other singers (excuse me not knowing how this event is properly titled - I'm at work, but the programme is at home!) Saturday and Sunday will see a continuous programme of music and events on the stage on the West Pier, and in many of the pubs and halls in the immediate vicinity of the pier. As far as the organisation goes, I Know it is a nightmare to schedule so many artists and groups (especially when some of the performers are in more than one group) but it all seems to be really well co-ordinated. Roll on Friday.

Absolutely Dick. Good crack. Proper accommodation. Richard works the artists hard - but that's what we're there to do. See you there.

as an artist [obviously different perspective than punter],Ihave found nothing wrong with the organisation as regards proper accomodation,artists performing time scheduling,.etc
I particuarly enjoyed the play and music that Richard organised last year,despite the storm I really enjoyed the seafest.

ratepayers money is IMO,Well spent on promoting Maritime music,there is a good line up of artists,mentioned in earlier post,a song writing competition,should be very enjoyable.
