Thread Name: Why folk clubs are dying
Subject: RE: Why folk clubs are dying
maybe because "it" no longer fits into their personal (and IMHO, sometimes blinkered) view of what folk music is/should be

The "unaccompanied vocal renditions of traditional English material" scene in South Manchester is buzzing, actually. The "I've got a guitar and I've learnt some words and what is 'folk music' anyway?" scene is buzzing even more, but it's all good - there are connecting doors.
