Iains uk folk clubs high standard (356* d) RE: uk folk clubs high standard 30 Apr 19

Wiki states that in the 60's there were 300 folk clubs in the UK.
According to the Daily Telegraph there were 3000.

Singing from the floor suggests every college,town and village had a folk club in the 60's.
Does anyone have any hard figures? It is hard to discuss the rise and fall of clubs when figures stated cannot be verified. It is a bit like using a slide rule to discuss sociology.

What is certain is that weirdy beardy men in pullovers no longer dominate the genre.
