Subject: RE: Wow - People want to go to Folk Clubs!!!
Sorry, I was the "Guest" above ... lost my cookie.

The sessions/singarounds I'm talking about (and sorry if I'm using the wrong words for anyone) are informal gatherings in a pub bar where people sing and play basically anything. The reason I tagged "singaround" on to session is that some people seem to think that "session" stands for instrumental-only evenings where everyone plays music at the same time and singing is not usually all that predominant.

Non-one ever pays anything (except for the beers) in these, there are no "guests" and there's no front or stage.
