Jim Carroll uk folk clubs high standard (356* d) RE: uk folk clubs high standard 06 May 19

"Which bit of "I don't run a folk club any more" is so difficult to understand?"
Maybe I should have specified - didn't think it necessary - I obviously overestimated
You, as someone who advocates enthusiastically for non-folk dross at folk clubs, is just as responsible or the damage being done to genuine folk song as is the club organiser who books such dross
Does that help ?
It seems a long-winded way of putting something which is fairly obvious, but needs must...

" Jim spent years embedded in the greatest folk club of all time,"
Was it ?
I didn't say so - I said it was the best one I attended, but I didn't attend them all
I said the same about the Song Circle I attend

Have we reached the point where distorting what I say has become essential Jack ?
Now we are arguing semantics - all helps to avoid the real points I suppose !

I have never advocated for unaccompanied song either Al
