Thread Name: Duos at folk clubs
Subject: RE: Duos at folk clubs
When I used to run singarounds at various festivals going way back I always tried to make it fair by giving a duo 2 songs, trio 3 etc., but this is not always clearcut. If someone is just providing a bit of accompaniment I wouldn't normally count this as a duo. If you know them and they regularly play together then I would give them 2, or if it's 2 singers then definitely 2. It gets complicated when everybody knows and performs with everybody else in various combinations. Then you've got to get your calculator out.
