Thread Name: Why folk clubs are dying
Subject: RE: Why folk clubs are dying
"That was partly my point; we have a booze-and-folk culture, extending to the celebration of drink and drunkenness in song. Perhaps there is, or was, a slice of the folk club audience for whom giving up the clubs was easier than giving up the beer."

Agreed Pip. I feel sorry for them. If the choice for me had been to give up either booze or the music, music would have won hands-down and booze would have been binned. As it was, my choice was booze or a painful death - absolutely no contest!
