GUEST,Sidewinder Folk music in England. (77* d) RE: Folk music in England. 11 Jan 05


Whenever I think of Folk Clubs and "The Scene" nowadays I cannot help but be reminded of that episode of Phoenix Nights when the folk group starts singing "Send The Buggers Back" resplendant in cloth caps and waistcoats. Is it just me or are there any others out there who would like to witness a richer and more diverse musical and literary social gathering. Where Folk,Blues,Soul,Pop, Jazz,Traditional,Poetry etc. can coexist within the same evening in the same venue and not be tainted with the snobbery that seems to pervade the usual Folk Night which in my experience has been a non inclusive replay of the previous week or month. The same faces play the same songs in the same order and so it goes.

Regards.

Sidewinder.
