Subject: RE: English vs. American folk culture
guest Tony, hi! many pubs in the UK present similar problems to the folk\ie crowd. we are forced to seek out friendly enthusiastic landlords, usually few and far between, and if they are Moved On by their breweries, the local folk scene has to find another venue Fast. House concerts are starting to take off here, though, round London way anyhow. even though our houses are mostly on the small side. 18-20 concert goers seated in comfort? probably the Max number in most homes I've visited. As for the music Mafia, well Gawd 'elp us all, we'll have to go underground..
