Thread Name: Where Have all the Folkies Gone
Subject: RE: Where Have all the Folkies Gone
Just as an example, one of my favourite acts is Anthony John Clarke. He writes most of his own material, based on his life and upbringing in the North of Ireland with some, but not all, of his work based on life there including the troubles. Now, how am I, a mere novice compared to you, know whether he is acceptable in folk clubs or just a wannabe pop star who can only make it by abusing the folk scene?
