A "Folk " club just had its first meeting this week at one of our local pubs.
The guy who is trying to get it started is big time into "Irish" music.
We had a good night with a nice mix of unplugged music ranging from
a lass with a great voice singing unacompanied folk songs,through blues,Irish music ,shee beg shee mor(sorry cant spell)on whistle and guitar,christy More covers,60s and jigs /reels.
Some original songs etc.
The organiser asked when we should next meet,the majority say a month so he has arranged it for next week!
The room was large and bereft of locals.
The pub has had a rep for unpleasentness recently.
We are going to try it a few times and see what happens.
Maybe YOu need to look for a scary pub with a willing new landlord?
I will keep an eye on this thread and see what develops.
I hope you find somewhere suitable soon.
