Thread Name: the UK folk revival in 2010
Subject: RE: the UK folk revival in 2010
"Nice idea, Hoot, but these days people don't sing in pubs they watch Sky Sport."

My local doesn't have a telly. But we do sing there a lot - not necessarily in an organised way. If certain regulars turn up, there's a sing-song. It's nice.

A monthly session has just started - again, mostly locals and regulars and very informal. Could never be called anything so grand as a "folk club". Not so much about folk as about the community. Works for me.
