Thread Name: womens role in folk clubs
Subject: RE: womens role in folk clubs
For every five male singer/guitarists in our club (The Hyde Folk Club, Plymouth)we have one woman singer. Our committee has three women and four men, which I think is a pretty even mix, although not intended. Only two women play the guitar, but I know a local acoustic guitar club has a high proportion of young female guitrists.

Maybe there are just more men than women looking to go out and sing in the evenings.
