I went to the last one and it was a fantastic event - imagine 100's of
traditional musician gathering everywhere all the time - concerts - a lot of
them impromptu - workshops - sessions - parties - fondest memories -
drinking coffee with traditional musicians from Shetland and Ireland one
morning - and walking home at 2 o'clock from the gathering point with a
young girl pulling her double base behind her. Superb music - and some
dancing also - one memorable Arkadian Strip the Willow with 50+ couples in
one set - danced twice through.
