GUEST,bob Folk clubs in Kent (117* d) RE: Folk clubs in Kent 10 Oct 11


ohh yes well spoken mr or mrs wolf!I find same whilst being only an occasional performer, one singaround performer can bog the whole thing down on a long winded version of a song and not always trad folk-bob(on and on and on and on and on and on)dylan songs that truthfully most normal mortals havnt a clue of what its about can be shortened and sound acceptable-example,the Birds doing mr tamborine man made a great song by cutting it to acceptable length,im sure bob(my namesake)dylans version is great to die hard dylan people but come on, this is a singaround not a guiness world record attempt at longest song known to mankind!It does make it unfair to others present hoping to get one more in so to speak,other offenders are the paper rustling trads reading a folk song from numerous sheets of paper,verse after verse after.......verse,the rustling then gives them a breather to find next 10 verses on another sheet,please lord,no more!!!!!As wolf said its a singaround,not a featured guest spot thats the problem-id say take note culprits and I now run for cover as the flack starts.....!
