Thread Name: Where Have all the Folkies Gone
Subject: RE: Where Have all the Folkies Gone
Rod stradling makes a number of points, inability to sell CDs being only one
In particular, he mentions the abandoning of folk song by EFDSS and a disinterest in traditional English folk singing in the clubs
I've attempted to discuss this only to be told that nothing is wrong on the club scene   
His correspondent describes having to sing at home among a small circle of friends
Frankly, I believe something has gone seriously wrong and, if not addressed soon, things will only get worse
The club scene is not alone of course - I've attempted to air my views on the New book thread
I was appalled to learn that only three Sam Larner CDs were sold, especially as we bought one of them
It is people like Sam, Harry, Walter and the rest who gave us our inspiration - I have no idea who will do so in the future
