Thread Name: Why folk clubs are dying
Subject: RE: Why folk clubs are dying
"Music ebbs and flows on the surface but is always there and changing, whether statutory bodies are or not."

You're spot on there, Diane, and I think that's WLD's point too. And changing is surely the operative word. I don't believe anything's dying at all, it's changing, and that's what some contributors to this thread seem unwilling, or unable, to accept - maybe because "it" no longer fits into their personal (and IMHO, sometimes blinkered) view of what folk music is/should be. There, I bravely said the F-word - please don't hit me! LOL!
