Thread Name: Why folk clubs are dying
Subject: RE: Why folk clubs are dying
No one has stated the obvious, which is that folk music is dead. The taproot is long withered, and so it is of necessity either a museum culture, or people are playing new musics. So clubs are -- and were -- a weird hybrid already.

(I know, I know, folk music is whatever folk are playing, blah, blah, I never heard no horse playing music, blah, blah).
