Howard Jones uk folk clubs high standard (356* d) RE: uk folk clubs high standard 07 May 19


Peter, Jack can defend himself but I think his question was specifically why a fine Irish singer doesn't get booked in Irish folk clubs.

You say that things are done differently in Ireland. I would be interested to know what this means. Jim seems to believe that the British folk scene is synonymous with folk clubs, and that the decline in folk clubs means the folk scene as a whole is declining He dismisses the alternative venues which have sprung up to supplement them. You appear to be saying that folk clubs aren't an important part of the Irish folk scene.
