Orac Folk Clubs- We need them! (74* d) RE: Folk Clubs- We need them! 18 Mar 03


I agree, fun though sessions may be, they only exist for the pleasure of the participants and have little to do with Folk Clubs. Many artists must despare at the floor singers they have to sit though. I really think that club organisers should think hard about what they inflict on a paying audience. If "floor singers" don't come up to a certain standard (including themselves) they should restrict them to "singers nights" ... (again using a term loosely. How on earth can you expect people to cough up good money to sit through an hour of complete dross every time they turn out for a guest night. Professional artists rely on a viable club for their livelihood, they don't need crap floor singers driving away the punters.
