theleveller What Is Happening To Our Open Mics? (34) RE: What Is Happening To Our Open Mics? 03 Nov 17

It seems to me that open mics are very much in the tradition of the Victorian Free and Easy, as described by Dickens in Sketches by Boz. These were happening way before folk clubs were ever thought of. The whole point of a Free and Easy is that people don't try to impose rules about what can and can't be performed.
