Thread Name: Best Folk Club Performers
Subject: RE: Best Folk Club Performers
If everybody will be tactful, I think this is a good thread and agree with treewind - I'd like more input as to why is a particular evening memorable, or why is a certain performer good. I think we have to "pigeonhole" to a certain extent - I for one love to hear traditional songs and would make a special effort to go and see someone who sings them. This doesn't mean I would boycott a singer/songwriter, however! People do have preferences and they want to have an idea of what they are going to see - nothing wrong with that. But I don't think anybody would get bent out of shape if a "traditional" performer threw in a few contemporary songs or vice versa.
