Big Al Whittle The current state of folk music in UK (2105* d) RE: The current state of folk music in UK 27 Oct 19

Well let's say you're right Jim, and there are people - lots of people - who won't go to folk clubs, because they don't sing folk songs there any more.

What do you suggest?
a) the Arts Council sue the errant club for misappropriation of the term folk club...?
b) Jail sentences for faudulent conversion of the term folk club...?
c) armed resistance - a terror campaign against companies who sell Paul Simon albums in their folk caralogue...?

You see what I'm saying - it doesn't take us any further from where we are now. And we do need to move forward in as positive a way as we can.
