Whitby Folk Festival – Aug 21st 2008

Some of us Hull and North Lincs lot did Whitby Folk Festival sessions on Thursday. We got there at about 10.30am and settled down at a cafe at the end of the north cliff area in the town, drank lots of tea, ate some sausage, eggs and beans brunch then played on our instruments.

      

Made John Kirkpatrick‘s session in the Middle Earth Pub early afternoon and the 422 session later in the day at the same pub.  Both sessions were different and both great. The pub was full but that didn’t detract from the session – then that’s easy for me to say as I had a seat!

Some of us Hull lot off to Shrewsbury Folk Festival now as I blog – and no doubt will have a good time there.

Emma, who’s playing bodhran in the session, brought her brother, Matthew Kitchen, along and he kindly took these photo’s of the French and early music session on 22nd June at the Beverley Folk Festival – thanks Matthew!
