Thread Name: womens role in folk clubs
Subject: RE: womens role in folk clubs
Women aren't the major singers usually because they just don't have the serious repertoire - they usually just want to sing the romantic love songs. Of course, if they're sexy, they are more likely to be a desired act - same as in pop music.

I thought from the Subject, however, you meant women's role in folk clubs, themselves. Usually they are the support people - handle publicity, prepare any food that's going to be offered, set up the rood - whatever is needed. Men usually handle the organizing and financial sides. It's always worked better that way in all sorts of organizations and it would be just the same for folk organizations, of course.
