fi_in_nz Developing New/Young Talent (26) RE: Developing New/Young Talent 17 May 06

Auckland Folk Festival has a young performers award and a concert for the young uns. It's often better than some of the other concerts. The MC of the club over there is welcoming to anyone who turns up, regardless of age. I think it's as much about being welcoming to everybody as anything else. I've been to clubs where I've felt I'd have to have lived in the club for 20 years before I'd be welcome to perform!!! Anywhere that is not cliquey and has a good MC should be good for new young talent. I think sometimes though an old audience can also put people off...... so how can we encourage younger audiences - I think this is a bit of a catch 22. F
