Whitby @ Home

If Whitby Folk Festival were happening in person this year, it's unlikely we'd be there: in the past the Bears have spent the week at the festival, and we've joined them for a day - but thatwas in the past, we haven't done it for a while ...

And even if we were there, we'd have been unlikely to see the Melrose Quartet, because their concerts are so oversubscribed there's no real chance of getting in.

So there are benefits to a virtual festival, even if it isn't the same as the real thing: for here are the Quartet as the Festival's patrons, available to all on their YouTube channel:

It's a short 'hour with', but packed full of good things, strung together by the Festival theme (apparently, though I can't find anything about that) of remembering songwriters Keoth Marsden and Peter Bellamy.

Other concerts and events from the Festival are available. This entry cross-posted from Dreamwidth: comments always welcome, at either location.
