Subject: RE: The current state of folk music in UK
Yes Raggy - in the magazine I counted 200 so even allowing for some attrition there's a healthy number

Thanks Dick - I agree that one can't make specific judgements from the listing of venues but it might help to give an indication of where areas seem reasonably healthy and where they might not be. Like you I feared for the folk scene in the 90s but then washeartened by the number of young people entering the scene. As an example The Young Un's reinvigorated the scene on Teesside and particularly Hartlepool
