Subject: RE: The current state of folk music in UK
yes, we did maypole dancing at primary school, it would be good if it was introduced again , if it has not been,it teaches the benefits of teamwork in a fun way
people go to folk events to socialise they also do not go if the performances are poor, so both jim and al are right,
i know high quality performers who will not go to some singers clubs in the uk because the standard is variable and sometimes very poor and because they have to listen to poorly performed pop songs, and poorly performed trad songs. nobody minds if the people gradually get better, but when there is no attempt to practise,as is the case with some performers, its only fun for masochists
