Subject: RE: Tom Bliss - So long and thanks
I think Treewind has highlighted the real problem with the demise of folk clubs. Poor quality floor spots do not encourage a new audience to return to a folk club. We are too kind to the deluded self indulgent singer and musician that think they are good and in truth are awful.I would love to go more often to local clubs but each time I go its the same really dire stuff on. The local amateur scaring away the audience that would have supported the talented touring folk artist.
