Subject: RE: The current state of folk music in UK
I can also remember music sessions held in pubs, that were not in seperate rooms plus folk clubs held in pubs [the capital in london] was one that comes to mind, plus some in sussex.. the laughing fish at isfield? that was the eighties or nineties, vic and tina smith ran that to suggest it is something new is just a joke,Ican remember both irish tune sessions english tune sessions, english song sessions in pubs[ withh john and katie howson that were not in seperate rooms.
all back in the 1980s and 1990s] then there was travelling folk starte in 1989
The Travelling Folk (TTF) is a travelling folk club for West Kent and East Sussex. We don't meet regularly in one venue but gather in pre-selected pubs around the area on the first and third Thursdays of each month to enjoy ourselves and to bring folk music to those who may not have had the opportunity of experiencing a live folk session before. Steve Gardham is giving a wrong impression
