Subject: RE: Duos at folk clubs
if playing along with the singer is acceptable in your club, flora, it does seem odd that you were not allowed to either sing yourself, or play a tune. if on the other hand, the singer gets a double go, I can understand that the mc might consider it unfair to the other performers, especially if at a venue with a 11 pm non negotiable finish. I guess only you can decide if it is worth going or not. I think that sometimes an event that mainly consists of players/singers can be a victim of its own success, as it might not be considered attending if you don't get opportunity to play much.
if you were able to get to footscray,[ presumably out of your area ?] any muso joins in with any song, providing no one asked they don't play along with them.
