GUEST,Banjiman Wow - People want to go to Folk Clubs!!! (35) RE: Wow - People want to go to Folk Clubs!!! 20 Jul 12

I agree, I think there is a material difference between sessions/singarounds and "folk (or Folk) clubs (Clubs).

I'm not saying I don't enjoy both....... but there is a difference. I do especially enjoy seeing "excellent" artists do extended sets in an intimate, preferably unplugged environment. That's why I run things like that..... we attract a mixture of "folky" and non-folky audience who expect extremely high standards. We charge a good ticket price as well.

I also enjoy having a play and sing myself, as an I don't fall into my own category of "excellent" I go to singarounds/sessions amongst my mates whose standards vary from barely competent to "excellent". I expect these evenings to be free of charge (except beer, obviously).

To me these things are best kept apart.
