Thread Name: The current state of folk music in UK
Subject: RE: The current state of folk music in UK
I know several of us have already put up on this thread plenty of evidence to the health of the scene in our own areas, but it has been ignored by the naysayer, so nothing wrong with repeating it. Just keep cutting and pasting. It might eventually cover the wall.

With all due respect, Dick, you are performing in folk clubs and similar. You are very likely missing all the sessions, singarounds events just for local artists like our free concerts etc. You don't mention the festivals either. Yes some are closing due to the economic situation but that says nothing about the type of music or what is being performed. (Surely this doesn't need explanation!)
