Singarounds & Sessions / Festival Open Mics

Singarounds & Sessions

Any good folk festival worth its sea salt will have rooms and spaces where people can sing and jam along without the complications of a PA and performers to be booked 'officially'. A place where anybody can join in.

Firstly, at the Belle Vue Hotel, as you walk through the front door, immediately turn right and you will fall down a staircase and then you are in DEREK'S CRYPT !

Yes, the one and only Derek Waudby hosts an informal and relaxed session in the room that use to be Nicola's Dungeon ! Join in if you dare......

And secondly one of the jewels in Filey Folk Festival's crown, the Foord's Hotel in Queen Street. The "whisky room" as it is now known is at the front of the pub as you walk in from the Queen Street entrance (first room on your right).
