GUEST,Vince Folk Clubs- We need them! (74* d) RE: Folk Clubs- We need them! 20 Mar 03

I'm not a regular 'floor-singer', in fact i'm a definate beginner and i'm 51, but they say its never too late. I was dead nervous as i sing un-acompanied but always wanted to 'av a go' cos i like the songs and love to hear a good audience joining in with a good chorus song or just enjoy the song with me. So as i was invited, i went for it and got a fairly good reception (could've bin politeness i suppose) but as i've been offered the opportunity since.....well who knows. Don't think i'd sing if it was a guest night tho for reasons previously stated unless they were desperate! Tho i understand many of the previous arguments, there must always be room for floor-singers
good or not-so-good aswell as guests. That, in my opinion is what 'folk clubs' are all about! Finally i think regular floor singers on guest nights should still pay the entrance fee! (sorry, i'm sure they all do).
