Thread Name: Why folk clubs are dying
Subject: RE: Why folk clubs are dying
Richard Bridge
I was trying to say that traditional music will only develop as part of a culture and within that culture. In that sense, it remains truly contemporary.

Sadly, so many people in the folk clubs seem intent on keeping the tradition preserved as it was, or they think it was, at the turn of the last century or whatever. They are effectively killing the tradition.

Perhaps that's incompatible with my screen name, but who cares? Don't know who you think I am though?
