GUEST,Peter Local or national for folk clubs (21) RE: Local or national for folk clubs 17 Jan 17

The mistake is to think that folk clubs represent some sort of homogeneous block.

The important thing is to stop the evenings becoming stale and uninviting. Reasons can include the same small group of floor singers doing the same old stuff week in week out or the same circle of organisers mates being booked as guests.

You need to consider what your club is there for, is it to provide a safe space for singers, to give local singers and musicians an opportunity to perform to an audience or is it to provide an audience with entertaining folk music? These are all valid reasons for running a club but each has its own set of underlying values which don't always mix.
