Subject: RE: Where Have all the Folkies Gone
Plenty more have gone before you because they couldn't find what was adveritised when they turned up at a folk club
If expecting folk songs at a folk club is "putting music in a straight-jacket", then so is expecting to her jazz at a jazz club, or classical music at a classical concert
We came to promote a certain type of music not put bums on seats
Only people who came to hear folk music and didn't have the right to complain - we did what we said we would do - if they didn't like it they were free to go elsewhere
I have yet to come across anybody who can describe what folk muis is if it isn't what it has been researched to be
