Thread Name: Best Folk Club Performers
Subject: Best Folk Club Performers (Traditional)
I'm interested in hearing what others think about the current crop of folk club performers who are making the rounds in the UK and Ireland nowadays. I'm talking about people who sing or perform traditional material, not singer/songwriters. Who gives a great performance and a memorable evening, and why? Any special sets that stand out in your mind? Sometimes you hear about somebody who's appearing and don't know whether to turn up or not because you don't know much about them. Any "must see's"? I'd like to hear people's opinions about different performers and get a sense of "who's who" and what they do.
