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

"I doin't need to know what was said."
'Course you don't !!!!
I'll tell you exactly what happened nevertheless
Fred Woods, editor of F.R. wrote a leader complaining of a couple of noisy clubs he visited, within two issues, writers took up his points and escalated them into a wide ranging criticism of what was happening on the scene in general
The only dissenting voice over the course of those postings was from one of the clubs referred to in the editorial claiming he had turned up on a bad night and the club was not usually as noisy as that
I'm sure, had you been tere you'd have taken up the pen to claim all was well - at your club, at least
Sorry Dave - you do need to know what was said - it is arrogant to claim otherwise

If there are valid reasons, you haven't given any
Your snide refence to what MacColl would approve of was unnecessary (he's been dead thirty years or so and no loger able to answer for himself -as Peggy pointed out when she asked people to let him lie in peace)
MacColl seldom, if ever commented on other clubs other than to say he enjoyed his visits to them - he just got on with running his club and he and Peggy continued to draw large audiences right up to his death
He must have got something right
If he had behaved in the same manner as some of the grave dancers who still feel the need to display their insecurity at his expense, he would have dedesrecved every word of hatred still being aimed at him
He didn't and he doesn't
Go find another corpse to dig up
