Thread Name: Why folk clubs are dying
Subject: RE: Why folk clubs are dying
there's nothing to attract young people into folk clubs at the moment

Except those folk clubs which are thriving and are attracting young people - which are obviously not folk clubs, because as we all know folk clubs aren't attracting young people and are therefore dying...

The thing is that would put me off folk clubs were I not a folkie would be the type that sit with one finger in their ear and sing harmonies ever so slightly out of tune that it becomes agonising to listen to.

I've seen some pretty bad singers in my time, but I've never seen even one example of that 'type'.
