Dave the Gnome uk folk clubs high standard (356* d) RE: uk folk clubs high standard 30 Apr 19


Dave puts up 186 as evidence of a "successful folk scene"

I really do wish people would stop making things up. I put up no arguments or conclusions. I linked to this Wiki article which states

The decline began to stabilise in the mid-1990s with the resurgence of interest in folk music and there are now over 160 folk clubs in the United Kingdom, including many that can trace their origins back to the 1950s

Note. It says that there are over 160 clubs. This is a minimum figure. I do not know where it came from and others have suggested there are considerably more. It does not suggest that this is indicative of a successful folk scene. It says quite categorically that the decline has stabilised and goes on to explain that the nature of folk clubs has changed.

If anyone is going to attribute anything to me, make sure you get the facts and source right or it makes you look foolish.
