poor lonesome boy how to be a folk star (40) how to be a folk star 26 Mar 02


Not a folk club in sight. Church talent shows, town music-fests and neighbourhood kitchens are about the only places to play 'round here, unless I'm able to travel, which I'm not. But still I have the urge to perform at a folk festival someday just a small one. And just be an afterthough on the bill even. I just want 20 minutes in the spotlight. Do you know of any folk festivals allow for "open mic" people like me? Should there be some? Isn't that what "folk" music is all about, afterall? Your thoughts and advice please.
