Big Al Whittle The current state of folk music in UK (2105* d) RE: The current state of folk music in UK 28 Nov 19

Well maybe we need those voices saying things are not as they should be.

What would be the perfect scenario? Two or three folk clubs in every town - full of people listening in respectful silence as long unaccompanied ballads are performed by bright eyed youngsters - full of zeal for ancient balladry....?

I think if that had been on offer in the 1960's and 70's - I would have stayed at home with my parents , watching the Rolf harris Show.....(featuring the Young Generation!)
