Subject: RE: How old is Brit trad of music in pubs?
Point taken Nigel. It was bad phrasing on my part. Then as now, the backbone to any sessions would be the local singers. But I imagine the idea of arranging for some visitor to come specially to sing - in addition to the normal singers - would be much rarer in the past than it is now.
