Thread Name: womens role in folk clubs
Subject: RE: womens role in folk clubs
From what I've seen there's little imbalace around Orlando. There are both men and women performing and working in clubs at various levels.

What is interesting is that at the open mikes, women seem to be less likely to suck. I don't think this is because women are superior to men (though they probably are), but I chalk it up to the willingness of men to get up on stage whether they're any good or not, whereas women wait unilt they're somewhat accomplished. Then again, there's one woman in the area who perpetually sings just a tiny bit flat. Drives me nuts!

pax yall

Oh, by the way, I'd still do her.
