Jim Carroll uk folk clubs high standard (356* d) RE: uk folk clubs high standard 29 Apr 19


"A Punter is not a word I like in relation to folk gatherings"
Immaterial to this - people going to a folk club atre entitles to get what the club calls itself
How can you object to the worrd punter if you don't object to a club calling itself "folk" when it doesn't do just that ?
Naming a handful of clubs that do when the scene has diminished by at least a thousand is meaningless
Concerts are where people go to be formed at - as I said, the club scene has lost its grass roots aspect
Any half decent scene can exist without guests otr the occasional guest
The malaise has even spread to teh researchers where folk aint folk anymore among them as well thatks to arbitrary re-definitions
Pretending that all is well isn't helping Ray
Jim
