Yes, a folk club could charge 15-20 per ticket, but I know plenty of people who would find that a struggle.

Went to see Bellowhead at Sheffield University. 15.00 a ticket no discounts for OAP's like me. Packed. 650 folk.

Went to see Alistair Anderson, Catriona McKay, Donald Grant, Peter Cropper - look him up!! 15.00 per ticket. Packed. 250 folk.

There is a lot of stuff around that people will pay for.

Sheffield is not the richest part of the country by any means.
