Thread Name: Why folk clubs are dying
Subject: RE: Why folk clubs are dying
"At the risk of contradicting myself, speaking as an unaccompanied singer, I don't believe those two things are synonymous! At least, I really hope they aren't - I'll have to put it to the test & do some recording some time."

I'm not suggesting that they are.... I could give lots of examples of fantastic unaccompanied singing (from some of our friends around here to some of the best known pros) ..... it comes back to your point about the "sound" of the thing, it needs to be accessible/ pleasant to the untrained ear. If it is, it will speak to the masses.

Hope that makes it clearer.

Jim, I'll be in touch.
