Subject: RE: Why folk clubs are dying

I did answer your question how should we react.

I replied with patience and tolerance.

If you are happy to approach poor performers to offer constructive criticism and advice and can do it kindly and spirit of helpfulness (which I guess from reading you elsewhere on the MC is the case) that is fantastic. Go ahead and do so. I would love it. RB instructs me and I am taking it on board. Slowly, but I am.

It is just Richard said. Please don't tell people they may not sing.

Tom - I wish I did have the answer to your question. All I can say is keep plugging away mate. If I was a billionaire I would make a musician's paradise, where people could make a living doing what they loved and were good at and all wanna be's could learn and hone skills without reproach.

My own planet Folk. Sigh. Then I would be the tyrant.
