Jim Carroll uk folk clubs high standard (356* d) RE: uk folk clubs high standard 03 May 19


"Another opinion put forward as fact."
You confirmed it with your description of what acceptable at a folk club, as have many others
Why do you do this /
I was around on n the scene when It began to happen - it was fully debated at the time
"but the number of clubs is a measure of how bad things are?"
There may be a lot of bad clubs - quantity means nothing
Remind me again how many clubs make a success according to your link ??
II have stressed throughout that it was a combination of issues being discussed - the main thing being the move away from folk song and its replacement with the limited and transient stuff that people now seem to be happy with   
My argument has been consistent from the beginning and it is based on personal experience - i three of the major cities in Britain
