Jim Carroll uk folk clubs high standard (356* d) RE: uk folk clubs high standard 02 May 19

"I would think that there is a good case for saying that all you have on England is sparse"
I think I'd say that if I was defending some of the positions here

I've told you what was happening when I left and I've been told by others
Now we no longer have the connection that the magazines and broadcasts once gave us we have little else to go on
I’ve been told over and over again the state of the clubs during these arguments – the poor standards, the failure to live up to the claim of being folk – the tearing up of the grass roots…. “all human folk is there” as the News of the World nearly used to say
You obviously see fit to dismiss the arguments being put up during these discussions defending the disappearance of clubs, the standards and the songs that are now passing for folk
I don't I'm afraid
Out of the mouths....
No - quantity doesn't equal quality - I've never argued it does, but if a music is to survive there needs to be enough people involved to mke that happen
