GUEST,Peter Folk Clubs and attracting younger people (81* d) RE: Folk Clubs and attracting younger people 10 Dec 14

"For reasons that we do not fully understand, changes are going on which mean that long-standing organisations are failing to attract youngsters. "

Of all organisations the WI are bucking the trend but not by bringing youngsters into existing groups, rather new groups are forming which often aren't run in the same way as the "old school" ones.

Individual folk clubs may fail as their members age but new outlets for folk music come along. The format may not always be to my liking but if they get an audience then its working for them.
