Thread Name: Why folk clubs are dying
Subject: RE: Why folk clubs are dying
The problem with switching the life support machine off is that there are some good folk clubs still in existence and they have been quoted on this page. But generally speaking I am with Jim and Diane on this one.

I am looking for the young organisers - we seemed to have trained the melodeon and fiddler players etc etc. We have a number of good singers emerging. But where are the young organisers?

Part of the problem (explained to me) was that there is a lot more bureacracy than there was, and frankly landlords are greedy when it comes to room hire.

I suspect there is a window of opportunity with the recession to get rooms for nowt.
