Thread Name: The current state of folk music in UK
Subject: RE: The current state of folk music in UK
Well Dave, I had quick look earlier and there are over 50 clubs/sessions in Greater Manchester.

That added to 144 in West Yorkshire and surrounds add up to over 200 in a relatively small area of the UK.

Now either that area is over generously endowed with folk session, having more than the entire total given by Wiki or someone is talking their anal orifice.

I'll get you guess which I believe. Especially given their attendence at such places in the past 30 years.

My apologies to all you good people to sing, play, promote and enjoy folk music but this has to be pointed out and if I ruffle a lot of feathers personally I don't give a f.............. flying flamingo.
