Thread Name: Why folk clubs are dying
Subject: RE: Why folk clubs are dying
Over a hundred years ago Flora Thompson -- "Lark Rise to Candleford" - noted the attitude of the young people to the old songs and the old singers. They were shown respect, though, even though their songs were considered old-fashioned and boring. There's a place for us all. It's not necessarily the same place at the same time.
Cheers, Joy
