Subject: RE: English vs. American folk culture
The UK Folk Revival was VERY Pub based , whereas the American revival was Coffee Bar orientated , so there is a major difference straightaway . Also , as GUEST at 8.09 said , the US equivalent of PRS is far more active .
However , it is also ~VERY patchy - Washington DC area has a plethora of Open Mics , sessions , and House concerts . Same goes for Boston , and several other urban connotations
