|Dick The Box||Collapse of the Folk Clubs (803* d)||RE: Collapse of the Folk Clubs||02 May 07|
I agree that there are a lot fewer clubs than there used to be, especially once you move out of urban areas. There are less clubs and they are more spread out i.e. fewer venues and more travelling for the professional musician. This means that it is harder to earn a decent living which means that they have to charge more. This leads to higher door prices and fewer guest nights. This leads to smaller audiences which leads to clubs closing which leads to...... A bit of a vicious circle here?
