Chatty concertinist (4/6)

  1. ๐Ÿ˜on the lovely North Yorkshire Coast, lots for all the family with plenty of concertina friendly events Whitby Folk Week Just remember to check the tide times before strolling on the beach, the sea comes all the way in to the cliffs. All the tide and weather information can be found here Whitby Lifeboat along with a webcam up the harbour. ๐Ÿ˜„and if you're in the area the weekend before, 10th to 13th of August, then Saltburn Folk Festival just up the coast is a lovely friendly festival to visit
  2. On the beautiful North Yorkshire Coast Whitby Folk Week lots for all the family to enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€ It will be lovely to see people in real life though getting used to being "social" again does feel rather strange and I'll be carrying a mask + hand gel and testing before events just to be prudent. when the programme comes out I'll put up a potted list of Concertina friendly events to give people a flavour of what there is going on .... also links to bus timetables etc. One of the most important things to look at if you're coming are the tide times, the sea comes in all the way to the cliff so please check before strolling on the sands, it saves getting a lift in the lifeboat here's a link to Whitby Lifeboat Station which has all the information on tides, weather etc. as well as an excellent webcam up the harbour ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. The main dance and concert venue in the Spa is being used as a Covid vaccination centre, working from 8am to 8pm every day with the car park above the Spa cordoned off to make a one way system so will probably be unavailable for some time to come. ๐ŸŽถ looking forward to seeing everyone safely next year ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘
  5. โ˜บ๏ธ just checked my bank statement and the automatic payment to the ICA went out last week. Competitive playing does not really appeal to me but there is great pleasure in meeting other concertina players of all the varied systems, Anglo, Duet, English, comparing and listening to the instruments and having a good tune session. ...... with songs for those who can sing, I can't carry a tune in a bucket singing โ˜บ๏ธ
  6. looking forward to the eventual lifting of all the restrictions, at some future date, OH and self are planning to head to Mussleburgh where he went to primary school and where his Dad was born, for a bit of a break. OH's Grandad lived on Fisher Row ( born Dunfirmline). I know we live in an East coast seaside town and planning a holiday in another East coast seaside town might sound a bit odd but if this present crisis has done anything it has made us list all the jolly things we'd planned to do and not got around to yet No idea when this will be but half the fun is in the planning and anticipation so if anyone has any advice on where to go, any possible sessions or if you live in Mussleburgh and would like to meet for a coffe, what to see in and around Mussleburgh we'd love to hear it we'll be going by pubic transport (train/ bus when they're back to normal)
  7. https://www.whitbyfolk.co.uk/ Whitby Folk Week 2019 lots of concertina interest .....and melodeons too
  8. Whoops.... I'd better start a 2019 Whitby Folk week thread 17th to 23rd August this year??
  9. until
    Whitby Folk Week 2019 on the North Yorkshire Coast, the listings for booked artists will update as more are confirmed
  10. follow the advice of George Garside, a superb melodeon player and teacher ...... leave your instrument where you can pick it up easily as the whim takes you and play any tune you like for as long as you fancy ..... then relax and put the kettle on for a cup of tea ( or open a bottle of wine or beer )
  11. the shop on Goodramgate in York had shut when we were last there but the website Red Cow Music gives an address at Stillingfleet
  12. If you're any where near me on the North Yorkshire coast I've a 20 button Anglo that gets lent out for people to try to see if the Anglo is for them ......it's basic but in tune
  13. For anyone coming to the festival, or at any other time this web site Whitby Weather has details of the tide times on the left hand side of the page. Very important as the tide comes in all the way to the cliffs, please check tide times before strolling along the beach. There are also links to local webcams and other useful information
  14. Update to parking ...... the Battery Parade, Endeavor Wharf and Marina car parks have been brought into line with the other council car parks and a ban on overnight parking for motor homes and caravans between 11pm and 7am put in place from yesterday August the 1st. Unfortunately the car parks were becoming unofficial camp sites for motor homes and caravans, the local paper carried a photo of the car park beyond the Co-Op packed with motor homes, 60 at a rough count, barely a car to be seen and there are no facilities for rubbish/chemical toilet disposal etc. ( unless you are a Marina permit holder paying a small fortune to berth your boat)
