Thread Name: Why folk clubs are dying
Subject: RE: Why folk clubs are dying
I take exception to Folkie Daves comment[well meaning as I am sure it is meant].
he seems to suggest that festivals are more likely to provide a higher standard than folk clubs.
I am not sure that festival singarounds are any higher in quality than singarounds in folk clubs[they are often the same people singing].
Folk clubs are about communities,Festival are about bums on seats[or lack of them in the case of Pickering]and how many people are still owed money by Pickering festival?
