Thread Name: Why folk clubs are dying
Subject: RE: Why folk clubs are dying
At the risk of offending a lot of my close friends (I'm over 60 and a singer/musician) I much prefer to be at a mixed (song & tune) session than be in a folk club nowadays. Yes, they are mostly full of people my age, so I much prefer the sessions and festivals where there is a healthy mix of all ages.
Also at festivals like Whitby & Sidmouth there is an enormous range of activities to take part in, catering for all ages.

Bugger it! There goes my few meagre bookings for next year.
