Thread Name: the UK folk revival in 2010
Subject: RE: the UK folk revival in 2010
Yes it does seem that folk from traditional to contemporary is having to compete with main stream popular music and song

The problem is in finding a ready made audience and pubs seem to be where its at, but everyone wants a slice of the action and "pub" time

There are many excellent artists/musicians and singers out there and if folk is your thing you may be following anything "on stage", you have to be up to it and sold on your music!!

Other than that promote your music and sing largely to the converted, is not really getting out there!!

More commercialism may be the answer, get people interested in paying good money ~ but are there enough/good enough folk musicians actually out there??
