Subject: RE: It isn't 'Folk', but what is it we do?
Our local folk club changed its name to Acoustic Music Club which meant you could sing/play practically anything from Somewhere over the rainbow to slitty wrist stuff.
Only the electric people were left out.
However, it folded because no-one wanted to come and listen to the people singing.
Nowadays we have a weekly 'session' in the local pub and it's not run as a club but more like a 'come-all-ye'. Any type of music is tolerated but most people stay with 'folk'. And there is an electric bass!
