Thread Name: the UK folk revival in 2010
Subject: RE: the UK folk revival in 2010
It's worth thinking about tacking folk events on to other events. The local Greenists organised a Green Festival so I organised some songs and tunes in the afternoon and a Ceilidh in the evening. The Ceilidh was particularly successful.

Hardly a patch of ground in Manchester is without a friend. The City Council website lists 47:

Friends Groups in Manchester


I bet most urban and quite a few rural settings have Friends groups. They organise social events from time to time and a Ceilidh is a good bet. 60 people x 5 pays for the band and a raffle will pay for the room. This group then become a Folk friendly collection of people can be invited to other events.

Cheers
