Thread Name: radio 4 how folk songs should be sung
Subject: RE: radio 4 how folk songs should be sung
One day there will be no pubs and no folk clubs, if young people care they need to start running clubs, they need to start looking at the early days of the uk folk revival where clubs booked each others residents. they need to start their own clubs wht will young performers do when there are no old people to run folk clubs?
in my opinion present day folk clubs, should give up trying to entice anyone under 30 and concentrate on getting 40 year olds in.
I cast my mind back to when i was young i went to clubs for the music but to meet other young people.
the next generation [ in my opinion] down from 50 plus are more likely to be more accepting of wrinklies than under twenties or under twenty fives
